Emma Graham

I'm 19 years old,I live in Co.Antrim and have a five month old baby daughter who is the most important thing to me. I am currently a student with the aim of eventually becoming a midwife.

Hope by Emma Graham

When thought in your head
Are getting you down
Remember this
It's best not to frown

Hold your head high
Don't feel ashamed
It isn't your fault
Your not to be blamed

If the sky was green
And the grass was blue
You looked in the mirror
And your not you

The person you were
Seems dead and away
But that's not the case
You've just gone astray

So don't be afriad
When you think you can't cope
Cling onto this thought
There'll always be hope
