I Do Not Understand the Way the World Does See

by Emma B. (Grade 7)

I do not understand the way the world does see

Because no one in this world has the same great eyes as me

And no one has the same eyes as him or her

If everyone thought the same the world would be a blur 

If everyone looked the same no one would care

About their eyes, lips, skin, hair 

Because no one would be above, no one to compare

No one would have plastic as their body, their lair

I do not understand the way the world does see

Because no one has a body as beautiful as me

An no one has the same body as him or her

If everyone looked the way they wanted the world would be a blur 

Everyone one is born with the body that they got

And you have to live with it like it or not

But are you askew, upset 

I know you can learn how to love I bet

Even if that is as far as you get

I do not understand the way the world does see 

And that fact’s ok

Love yourself however you may be

Beach At Night With A Summer Breeze

By William Arthur C. (Grade 5)

Waves crashing, wind howling, crabs scuttling: 

signs of

a beach at night with a summer breeze. 

The sun gleaming,

as it settles down for a nap behind the mountains.

A flock of birds 

heading south for the winter. 

A beautiful stag

taking a drink in a creek 

just wondering 

what a beautiful night it has been.
