The Greatest Gift By: Caleb Hammonds


He thought about the proud face his father would make
Tears streaming down his face shivering in the bed

The boy believed his future would be brighter than his present state

He stopped believing in fate, because of the words in his head
“I’ll kill you if you ever disrespect me again”With his fist pointing at his chin. The boy understood his father was stressed
The pressures of christmas put his poor family to test
In his room the words played over and over
The spirit of ambition outweighed the boys anger
His little brother embraced him, saying its okay our father has pride
The boy looked him in his eyes and said God will change our lives.
