Just a thought

Diary of a 7 year old in the 21st century

Dear Diary,

Today, I felt something weird around my tummy. I never had this kind of feeling before. It makes my heart beat a bit faster and when I think about it, my head hurts. I felt sad and scared and nervous and not comfortable. Mummy said I was stressed. She said I was too young to be stressed. I wonder why stress had an age limit.

I saw the newspaper today. Mummy said it's good to start reading newspaper. I think the corals are stressed too. I wonder if they are too young to be stressed. They are stressed and they are going to turn white and die. I wonder if I will turn white and die too.

Jenny was telling me today it was not fair that her brother has a handphone and she doesn't. And it's her birthday. I got superman for my birthday, but I don't think it's not fair. Because some boy in Pakistan got a funeral for his birthday. I'm sure he would rather have anything else. Even a card that said "Happy Birthday" would've been nice.

I hate saying byebye to mummy and daddy everyday when I go to school. I wonder how he can say byebye forever. And ever.

My eraser got lost today. I lost my pencil yesterday too. I don't want to lose everything. Like some people in China who lost everything they owned. And everyone they loved. I don't think I can be happy again.

I feel quite hungry now. Daddy tells me some people in Africa are so hungry their stomach becomes really big. Like they are having a baby. But my stomach becomes really small when I'm hungry. I wonder how hungry they must be.

And today, Big Bully Ben took my pocket money again. I was so sad I cried, because he took all of it, so now I have no money. Then Ms Nadia said in class that a lot of people live on less than $1.25 a day. Do they cry everyday?

I think the world is not fair. I hope God can help people. I hope he makes the world round again.

And the rattlesnake said,"I wish I had hands soI could hug you like a man."
And then the cactus said,"Don't you understand,
My skin is covered with sharp spikes
That'll stab you like a thousand knives.
A hug would be nice,
But hug my flower with your eyes."
