Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

As I got up for school,
Before I looked for my sister,
Since she had to wake up early,
After my mom told me not to put on my school clothes,
I realized it was going to be a bad day.

As we drove to my grandma's house,
While I heard all their sobs,
After hugging all the familiar people who walked in,
As I laid a kiss on his cold forehead,
I said goodbye to my papa, and I mourned with my family.

The author's comments:
We were challenged to write a poem with 2 stanzas in English the other day. Each stanza had to have 4 dependent clauses. My English teacher said my poem was great, and that i should share it; therefore, i am posting it on here because i don't like sharing my writing with my family for some weird reason. I hope you enjoy.
