A Treasure


I have spent the last 4 years searching for meaning in my short life

Trying to understand why life has been hard for me

Trying to understand why I have endured so much pain and suffering

Removed from the people I love with whom I can never be

Asking myself if some day my luck will change I’ll find happiness

And in this search I realized that luck does not exist

That each person’s story has already been written before they are born

That although my short and sad life is not what I want right now it will soon start to grow

That although in the eyes of others I am the worst that could have been

I continue to be special

That there are people who love me and want the best for me;

People in whom live true love, suffering love

He who does not only search for his own but also that of others

Love that doesn’t irritate

Love that doesn’t hold a grudge

Love that bears all things, believes in everyone

Love that waits, love that supports

Forgiving love

The one and true God’s love

In my short and difficult life I have found that

And the greatest thing is that I still have a lot to live

A lot to find and a lot to learn

Dedicated to my mother.


  1. I really like this piece, and I love that you have learned things, Life is all about learning.

  2. No words can say how awesome this is!

  3. I love how you isolated “I continue to be special” in its own line. That made a really big impact. Keep writing!

  4. Hi YA. I keep coming back to this poem, reading it over and over. Kept wishing I had something meaningful to say, couldn’t figure out what it was. I realized that you, being in a worse off physical situation I’ve ever been, are still spiritually in a much better place than me. You’ve found beauty and love from where you are, yet I struggle every day- even will all my ‘freedom,’ somehow failing to see the beauty right in front of me. YOU, YA, are an inspiration to ME. Keep sharing the love you have found, you will be an inspiration to everyone.

  5. I love this! It’s beautiful and so true. “A lot to live, a lot to find, and a lot to learn.” True of every person you meet.

  6. Awesome! I am FILLED with joy knowing that you have realized these beautiful things! I hope you can share you love and hope with others! What an awesome writer and Son of God you are!
