My Uncle - a Lyric poem by Candace Strombeck
MS Creative Writing/GO teacher- Ms. Poole
The day my Uncle died.
He loved me so much.
I miss him a bunch.
We used to do a lot of fun things.
Like going to the park to swing.
When he left this world.
On the couch I curled.
Into a ball.
Because everything felt so small.
Nana - a Lyric poem by Candace Strombeck
I never got to meet my Nana.
She knew I acted like a banana.
I wish she were here,
But I know she is with me every year.
My middle name is Gail,
And that helps me not fail.
I miss her so much,
And I love her a bunch.
Can't wait for us to meet, so one day I will meet a treat.
My Family - A Sonnet by Jaime Cabrera
MS Creative Writing- Ms. Poole, GO teacher
My mom works very hard,
Yet she still has time for me.
Even when she goes very far,
She will still be in my heart even if she’s at sea.
My dad teaches me to be tough.
He just wants me prepared for life.
Because life can be very rough,
For your friends can strike you like a knife
My brother and I used to act like kings,
But now we are all grown.
We start to like different things,
And soon we will be on our own.
I will always love my family forever,
And I will never give up my love for them whatsoever.
Family Blessings - A Freeverse by Jaime Cabrera-
MS Creative Writing- Ms. Poole
My parents always get me what I want
We are not the richest family
And we are not the poorest family
But we got what we need
We live in a small house
We have food
But most importantly, we got each other
And that’s all I could ask for.
Battle in the Night
By: Riley Yoh
MS Creative Writing /GO teacher Ms. Poole
Flashes of red, white, blue, and black
Explode in the sky,
Raining ashes and embers
As the wizards fight
One breathes moonlight,
The other blue fire,
One fights with swords,
The other with precious earth
The battle goes on,
But at the end,
The wizards claim another victory
Standing in the rubble of the city
The enemy lying on the ground
The Dragon’s Sacrifice
The black dragon sends away her young,
A human girl with extraordinary magic,
Off to the river to fish
So the young girl won’t have to see,
Her mother's demise.
The brown dragon roars,
And sinks it’s claws into the black dragon’s neck,
For a reason that is not true or just,
For it was the brown dragons betrayal,
That caused the black dragon’s flight.
The young girl of 15 returned,
To see her mother lying on the ground,
With eyes closed and breathe still.
The girl cries,
Then becomes determined and walks off,
In hopes of someday,
Killing her mother’s killer
