Dreams

Marco Chen, Garfield Elementary

 

It's Blue

Like the starry night, like the 

blue sky

 

It's bright like the glowing moon,

like the very bright sun, it's on fire

 

It's cold, but its romantic

On top of a tall mountain,

the light of the town is as bright

as the Sun

 

It's beautiful,

It looks like there

were ten suns

in the sky,

the best day ever,

I see a werewolf,

it's coming to eat the suns

I'm Awake

JUPITER! 

Jessica Ojeda, ER Taylor

 

I went to Jupiter as fast as light. 

On my long journey I looked outside, 

it was a beautiful night. 

I saw millions of lights. 

I landed on Jupiter; as I walked around 

I felt different types of air. 

I thought, “what a beautiful place” 

I wish to stay

on this peaceful and clean place. 

I felt a nice warm air blowing at me. 

I wish people can live here

I called my family to come with me.

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

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.

I Am

Kimberly Carballo, Cleveland Elementary

 

I am proud, happy, brave

I wonder how the world came to be

I see happiness around the world

I want peace in the world

I hear Let’s Go Giants

I am proud, happy, brave

 

I pretend to be a dancer

I feel drops of water on my hair

I touch the stars up above

I worry about my friends and family

I cry when I hear someone dies

I am proud, happy, brave

I understand that there is good and bad stuff
