Poetry Contest: When You Fall

by  Laura Santner

Child,
You will fall
And oh will you fall far sometimes
And not know where to go
And not know where you went
And not know how to speak
But child,
You will learn
Take it all in
And write your sorrows
To find your joy again
Show yourself hope
That got caught in your heart
It’s ok to be uncertain
It’s ok to feel alone
Gather your strength
And I promise child
You will pick yourself back up
And rise
And shine
You will have these moments
And remember that despair is fleeting
Look beyond your dark days
Love your limitations
And think
Because new doors will open every dawn
And discoveries will be made
My child, oh child
You can be that star you dream of
But you must dare to dream it to begin
