I went to the zoo in Be’er Sheva and took lots of photos. Instead of sharing them, though, I have a poem that might be almost finished. So here it is:
I come from a place of ugliness,
Pain and distrust
I live in a place of beauty,
Yet still in pain
It is the same place,
It’s all in how I look at it
Sometimes there is no choice. When I was a kid, life was fear and pain, loneliness. Back then I had no choice, even though there was one adult on my side. He’s the reason I’m still here. Now I have a choice. Fear and pain are there, but I choose not to participate. I choose Faith. And Love. Life is good today.
