"When Problems Happen" by Victoria
In my dream I want to travel around the world.
When I see bad things happen to people
I want to help, too, but I don’t know who they are.
When I look to the sky
I see the bird fly in the sky.
I want to fly, too, but I don’t have a wing to fly.
I want to touch the sky,
but I can’t touch the sky,
because the sky is very high.
I feel unhappy because there is a flood in a country.
I want to help the people.
When their trouble is over I will help them to build a house.

One day at Khmer school I had a test. I did some tests and some I didn’t. One week after that, my teacher checked the tests.Some tests had good scores, some had bad scores. Then the next week my teacher gave the student record book and I saw that I had a good score. I had passed my exam. I took the student record book to give to my mother to see it. My mother was very happy and I was very happy too.
