Title: A New Beginning

Notes: Elena wrote this poem about her life before camp, she was beaten, raped, drugged, etc. With her coming to camp, she has a new beginning and she feels that spring is where it will start.


Spring brocky entry

It's only the beginning
...a pathway yet unknown
sometimes the sound of other steps
...sometimes we walk alone.

The best beginnings of our lives
may sometimes end in sorrow
but even on our darkest days
the sun will shine tomorrow.

So we must do our very best
whatever life may bring
and look beyond the winter chill
to smell the breath of spring.

Into each life will always come
a time to start anew
a new beginning for each heart
as fresh as springs morning dew.

The years will never take away
our chance to start anew
it's only the beginning now
so dreams can still come true.

The pink petals fly high above
saying hello to those we know and love
as the wind dances
and spring begins.
