|Dreams Come True|
Written by a Devereux child
Keep your head up and be strong
when times are tough and you’ve been wronged.
We all have made some bad mistakes
or have done some things we wish we could replace.
We shall go on and forget the past
and live each day as if it was our last.
Some of us have been moved to so many different places,
but the good thing is we have all seen new faces.
We have been through different things
that caused us heartaches and so many pains.
Day after day, I have felt all alone,
still having no place that I could call home.
Throughout the years I have shed so many tears,
but the love of you people has calmed my fears.
I have tried my best to keep my pain inside,
because the good Lord knows how much I have cried.
Even though it is hard, we should never give in,
it is like we are in a race and pacing to win.
Think of the good and not the bad
and reflect on the good times that you know we’ve had.
Accept who you are now and let go of what you used to do.
It’s going to be hard, I struggle too.
Just hope for the best and don’t let anyone bring you down,
you are on the path to success, don’t turn around.
Stand up for yourself and continue to be you
and you will see one day that dreams do come true.
