BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.

On my kitchen table
There's always a glass of water
I always ensure the water is hot
But I never fill the glass;
Some will see it and say
''Oh! Your glass is half empty''
What do we call them?
Some will see it and say
''Hey! Your glass is half full"
What do we call them?
But I like them both
Because they give honest opinions
And they make me think harder
So that I see life differently
Yes, from all dimensions
They make me space out
And build movies of my life
Both in my poor state
And my wealthy state.
