"Be the change you want to see in the world"- Mahatma Ghandi

Mama when I’m gone 

there won’t be anymore pencil shavings 

staining my fingers black. 

There won’t be anymore glass shards

on the marble floor or scratch marks on my hand. 

Mama when I’m gone there won’t be 

anyone to scold 

or hug when the night gets cold. 

There won’t be anymore days 

of tired voices or tear stained faces. 

There won’t be pencil shavings on the floor 

when I’m gone, mama 

where will you be?
