I Found a Rock

By Justin Rubio

E.R. Taylor

5th Grade


I found a rock it was pretty heavy so

When I picked it up I fell on my 

Knee it hurt but I didn’t care

 Did I mention it was gold and shiny


I found Simon he had a 

Diamond it was as big as a bike

He gave it to me for that shiny rock


I found a found but there

Were arms holding it, I inserted

 the diamond and it gave me the fossil.


I went into the pueblo

And traded it for a treasure chest.


The chest was full of treasures

I had already found so I sold

It for an adventure


On the adventure I found

My destiny, found more treasures

And got wealthier.
