Things Happen

“She didn’t just disappear from my heart.” -PJ McBrayer


"Find the Good in the Bad" by Lacey Ewers, 11th grade

“I saw a small puddle of water, and didn’t think anything of it. Walking by it, these colors caught my eye. I was in a shopping mall parking lot, of all places, and just wanted to go home, but I had to stop and take a picture of this. The colors blend beautifully and brightened up my day.” – Lacey Ewers

Things happen in people’s lives
That completely change them
It might be an accident, or the loss of a loved one
Or something personal
Where your heart breaks into a million pieces
Lost and full of pain you drag on day by day,
Wondering if the hurt you feel in your soul will ever go away
Life almost seems… worthless
But then someone special enters and takes the pain away
With a reassuring word and an eye full of love
Your hearts grow together instantly
Life might not seem worth living
But those special people who enter the heart
Make everything full of worth
They fill your life with hope
They fill you heart with love
They fill your mind with peace
I thank you for being my special someone
