John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son so whoever believes in hill will not die but have eternal life.

Dreams are what make us who we are, a life without dreams is like a life without air.

When night falls in my little town
There's hardly a soul or a sound
The stars shining in the night sky
The echo's of “Farewell!” and “Goodbye!”
The car doors are slamming and then
Silence is in the air again
My little town makes it very easy
To settle down quickly and begin to sleep...

...I have dreams when I sleep of my own secret place
Where everything is easy to create and erase
It's my own little fantasy world that I know
Will always be the way I left it when I go
There's a bright shining sun and a big bright blue sky
Filled with milky white clouds, and bluebirds way up high
The grass is just green enough, the trees are just tall enough
The animals just there enough, the rain droplets just small enough
The people are friendly in my perfect, small town
But there's something amiss, that is never around
The grass is just too green, the trees almost too tall
The animals are nice, and it be nice with no rain at all
My town is just too perfect as the sun begins to glare
It stares at me, still shining, as if it doesn't want me there
Maybe it's not the town? Maybe it's just little me
Who seems to be imperfect beside the birds, the sun, and trees
Am I really not even worthy, of something that I made up?
Am I still awkward and undesirable with all of my make up?
And then I decided something, something right then and there
That it didn't matter how, and it didn't matter where
I was always perfectly imperfect, and I wouldn't change a thing
I'm fine wherever I am, no matter what's happening
And the sun began to darken, and the clouds began to gray
And the trees we growing taller, all the animals ran away
And as it was all fading I firmly held my place
“I am happy with who I am! My hands, my feet, my face!”
And as my perfect world was almost faded away
My eyes began to open realizing it was day...

Now back in my own town, safe and sound and happy
I realized that I was right, though that might sound kind of sappy
I am great the way I am and no one can ever change that
Whether I am pretty, ugly, boring, funny, skinny, or even fat
And now the sun is shining in my hometown on this fine day
I think I'll stay inside, just this one Sunday

I love this poem so much because it expresses the inner feelings of a young girls heart, and all of her insecurities through a dream.
