How on earth did you survive?

Though torn and beaten

Your words jump off the page

Beautiful and moving

How did you make it?

The flames on you

How did you take it?

The slander, the fear

How, my Bible,

Did you survive all things?

How does He do it?

How can you still sing?

–Jordyn Engel, sophomore creative writing student at Notre Dame Junior/Senior High School, Burlington
