This is a Life

We need love
from dad, mom
son and daughter
holding each other
go together
to cross the bridge.

Now I still study
so the thing I see is the bridge of knowledge.
Mum and dad
said read, write and listening are important
because I’m a student, I should do it.

My family make me warm
so I am strong to cross the bridge of knowledge.
I will study hard
to make my family proud of me
and I will see my family get
happiness.

Together To Be Strong

We are human,
we make relationships
to make one huge family.
We never give up
we are still holding hands
we are still helping each other
to cross the bridge of life.

Walking together
up and down
with boys and girls
to know each other
to do good things.
We love each other.
Don’t be afraid to cross the obstacles.

I’m here for you.
Together for one.
The way to find happiness
is to connect,
to build a strong bridge
that everyone needs.

My Love

I think that I am a sister and a daughter in my family.
And, my family always thinks that I need to be more good for my family than my
younger sister and my younger brother.
So, I need to think and do something good,
and can help my family and I do not make mistakes.
Sometimes I never think about myself and I always think about my family too much.
Sometime I think that I make everyone happy,
Although I never know that myself is happy or sad.
I’m happy and smile when I see my family, and friends are happy and they are laughing.
Sometimes I always ask myself, what is happening in my future?
If I think of my feelings.
Although, I still think about their feelings too!

But don’t worry, don’t be afraid!
Don’t forget that you have your parents.
They’ll motivate you every time when you are:

However, whatever happened you don’t give up.
