Bright Star

Ariana Carrillo, Hillcrest Elementary

 

I am as bright as a star that shines in the sky that explodes on my heart that lives

In my life everywhere I go I follow the star that lives in my heart

I pretend I never see it but I do see it.

I am feeling the fresh breeze of the air but I do not feel it

I feel the hot sun

I am going to melt

My heart beats and beats everywhere I go.

The star I follow everywhere disappears

The hot sun goes away

Red

Frisca Mohammady, Up on Top Program at Tenderloin Community School

Red sounds like fire

It sounds very scary

It tastes like strawberry pudding and strawberry jello

 

Red makes me feel cozy and warm 

It's like I have to sleep

Moves likes the waves of the ocean

Looks like a monster

Feels like love

I Am

Roy Hodgson, Cleveland, Elementary School

I am a balloon floating into the sky

I am from Pizza Planet

I am the color green

I am the ketchup on your fries

 

I am from a special country I call Nicaragua

I'm a meteor striking on the earth

I'm a S.S.S.P, Super Star Soccer Player

 

I am a piece of gold someone is looking for

They say, I am Roy, the boy, the toy.

Con safos!

Lima 
I am from Lima
where people have so much rage in their body
Now I'm in S.F.
where people are full of honesty
I am from Lima
where I couldn't stand the heat
Now I'm in S.F.
where I listen to new sick beats
I am from Lima
where I miss being so mean
Now I'm in S.F.
where I wait for August 19 I am from Lima where I eat Caldo De Gallina Now I'm in S.F. where I scare my sister pobrecita
I am from Lima
where it's hot and dry
Now I'm in S.F.

Who I am

Grace Soper, Lakeshore Elementary

 

Sometimes I sit there wondering with my mind wide open,

Thinking about who I might be.

If I am a piñata filled with joy,

If I am a balloon filled with imagination,

If I am a piggy bank filled with generosity,

If I am a backpack filled with exploration,

And if I am a gift filled with love.

My best is my bravery,

My heart is my hope,

My mind is my magnificent,

My soul is my spirit,

My smile is my success,
