Footprints


Some people come into our lives and quickly go.

Some people stay a while and leave footprints in our hearts and we are never the same.

“Many people will walk in and out of your life,
but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.”

As I open my eyes, I find myself alone in a dark desert. There is no one just me. I lie under a tree. I can't see anything but shinning stars and the moon.

Moon...!

Seems to be the owner of this land...

Suddenly the sky becomes bright. A ray of light whips the sky. It makes the ground bright, I see there is another tree, an Apple tree.

The apples are glamorous. I stand up just looking at them. I walk toward that unconsciously . I go closer and closer. I stretched my hand to… Continue

fortune window

A window in your heart you feel,
The space between them you fill,
With all wishes you dream.

Through it you see the world
Interpret it in such a word,
In which you feel happy or bored.

You sing it with a nice tune,
What a goodness!
Whose window is opened to the fortune...!!!

Welcome dear!
With eyes full of tears,
All hear your cry of fear.

You're right dear!
Where you'd been was a world of cheer,
Full of angels there and here,
God's hand always touched your hair.

Oh, is it frightening?!
You have the allowance of living,
To you the Pandora's Box is giving,
It's up to you which one to choosing.

Simple English texts are hard to find :(

As a private tutor, I've been looking for texts written in Present Simple and/or Present Continuous, since that's my students' level of knowledge. They're in the 5th and the 6th grade (the same school), and the program is really slow - after five and six years of learning English they use and learn only Present Simple and Present Continuous.



The problem for me lies in finding texts (stories) written in present tense, which I could use for my classes. Even those labeled as "basic… Continue
