Every Christmas I’d ask for all these toys and dolls

But what I really wanted, I did not know at all

At six years of age, I chose a “surprise”

But inside, a feeling of want was beginning to arise

I got stuffed animals and clothes and many decorations

But that feeling inside left me with many frustrations

I knew not what I wanted or felt like I needed

But I thought what I wanted was to be appreciated

My name is Makaela, I love to write and read anything I can get my hands on. I love playing with my little siblings and hanging out with my VERY amazing big sister. I also really enjoy music and all the arts.
