I am creative and hungry for life.      
I wonder what comes next.       
I hear children laughing.     
I see children smiling.                             
I want more of the above.  
              
I am creative and hungry for life.                                                                            
I pretend to be dancing with children.                                  
I feel hopeful but scared.  
I touch soft skin of children's hands.   
I worry about the future.    
I cry for children wanting to live.
    
I am creative and hungry for life.     
I understand life can be difficult.      
I say all people should be healthy.     
I dream of peace on earth.     
I try to talk about peaceful ways.    
I hope for communication.
    
I am creative and hungry for life.
