“Missing My Dad”

Marlon Barreno

J. Sierra Elementary School

I used to be a shark but now I’m a piranha

I used to be a small town but now I am a big country

I used to be clouds but now I am the sun

I used to be a fall leaf but now I am a blooming flower

In my heart is art

I love to color and draw

in my heart is dance

the way I move my body makes me glad

in my heart is cooking

And cure them

I wish I could be a construction worker
And build them new houses
