The World Daniel

The world never stays the same.

Thunder flashes through the world.

Flames roar upon the people.

Darkness casts a shadow on us.

Water rides fast horses

up the world’s back.

The world has grown,

the old ways became paradise.

The world hides every secret

in the earth below us.

Feelings are different

for men and women.

Light calms the world in peace.

The world never gives a secret.

The world never stays the same.

by Daniel, 2nd grade
