I Used To Be…

Giovanna Andrade, Junipero Serra Elementary

 

I used to be the ground 

that everyone steps on

but now I am heaven

where everyone is welcome

 

I used to be a cloud

for the people to guess what shape I am

but now I am a cloud with rain

that people stare at and wonder about their life

 

I used to be a dead rose

with all my petals that have fallen off

but now I am a healthy garden

of beautiful roses

 

I used to be a broken weak branch

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.

“Missing My Dad”

Marlon Barreno

J. Sierra Elementary School

 

I remember the dad that I had—

I remember going over his house

And sleeping with him limb to limb

I remember playing soccer with him

Trying a lot, giving him everything I got.

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”

Anjole Leveron

J.Sierra Elementary School

 

In my heart is fulled with a lot

from my family and friends to all the things I love to do

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
