Two Worlds

Baby crying,
Drizzling rain.
People dying
Sorrow and pain.

Cold, clear mountain peak
Exotic monkeys so shy
Colorful birds to seek
Beautiful blue sky.

A world of contrast
So different yet the same
Two worlds in one
Beauty and pain.

Luke Myhre (age 13)

(Luke wrote this poem the day he finished exams, it came to him riding home in the mud.  I think the contrast between the beauty of Africa and its pain is always before us, and our kids.  Thought you might like a more serious poem, and the perspective of another member of the family.  Jennifer)

Thank you, Luke. A good glimpse of the world you live in. Good for us to read and ponder and pray over.

I love the poem. Do u remember us. We were just talking about u guys and we r wonderin when u r comin 2 the states. We hope u come soon because we wanna c u again. Come 4 like 5 months so we can chill. We will party at the Allens and hopefully not drown r selves. We will tube and do water sports and even ummm find those sling shots u gave us and have a war. IT will be us against the world. About the poem u gave us a good view of the world and make us realize how good we have it in america.tell us if u need help gettin here I will fly my new plane my dad boght me and come and break u out. Katie said u only have like 4 kids in ur grade is this true? I can't believe we saw u like 5 years ago i think.... or was it 4 years ago... or was it 3 years ago.. maybe it was 6... or was it 7... could it really be 8... I hope this is the Luke Myhre I know because if it isn't I would be really embarrased. Hope this made u happy
