Moody: About My Life



The world is so big

Some people are living the good life happily

And don't know anything about the other side of the world where people are dying and having the tough life.

I am one of those people

I had to leave my friends, family and my home behind me

I made the biggest decision so far in my life to cross borders and I don't know if I will arrive safely or not

It was all I took for a life that I can live in peace

and have a bright future.

One with no war

With no bombing

With no discrimination

That is what I am looking for


Life is not easy at all

Even though we struggle, I try my best to keep that smile on me

and keep the people around me happy
