Blue to Red

by a child in Friends program

Sometimes when I look at the ocean it
turns the colors from blue to red.

I get mad because it reminds me of how
hard my life has been.

Now that red ocean is behind me and I
am not going to look back.

Now that I see the ocean clearly, I can put
the past behind me and put the future
ahead of me.
