My Past Memories

Sneja Limbu, Redding Elementary 

When I see the sun

I feel like I am in the past

with all my wonderful memories

The memories

of being in the sunlight,

and playing soccer

Saying hooray when I win

and having good sportsmanship

when my team feels like they have lost 

The memory

of losing a soccer game

but still having fun

with joy and lots of smiles

The memory

of splashing puddles

while playing soccer

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

Christmas Morning

Jack Lawrence, Redding Elementary

I wake up feeling so excited

I can't wait to see the tree all lighted

With my presents all around

I wake my parents with abound

They woke up to come into the living room

As I ripped open my presents in a boom

I was so happy with what I got

I hugged my parents and said, "Thanks a lot"

Then I went through my whole stocking

I had to say, those were rocking

Spent the whole afternoon with all my new stuff

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

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,
