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!

"I am"

By Alex Alvarez

When I feel sad I get mad
Like a tiger without food
My teeth are like sugar
That you put in corn flakes
With just the bright amount
It can be perfect!!
