Month of the Military Child: Life goes on....

Month of the Military Child: Life goes on....

by Min Michael
Humphreys West Elementary School

My parents tell me I go with the flow. 
I really don't go in the traffic though.
We have moved alot, so have many friends,
It has caused some very strange dreams about them. 
I like to keep my thoughts to myself which makes this poem very hard
except I always have my family there to help me as my wild card.
I never chose to move and wanted to stay put
but the military had other ideas and put down their foot.
So that's why I'm here telling you my choices of life 
when you have a hard time think about other's strife.
In the end, the positives have outweighed the negatives
so sometimes you have to look at the alturnatives
And if life hands you lemons,
Make lemonade.
