I Am

by Grace M. , Grade 7, Chico Country Day School, Chico, CALIFORNIA USA

I am an artist and a poet.

I wonder why poetry flies off your paper.

I hear poems that smell like roses in the evening.

I see the drawings of nature spirit.

I want to see an artist create a masterpiece.

I am a person that sees more than just a person itself.


I pretend there is no global warming.

I feel the anger of people that are not heard.

I touch the hearts of my enemies.

I worry that my children won't live where there is no water.

I cry at human cruelty to the earth.

I am fighting for a better world.


I understand my life is short.

I say, ”Live your life to the fullest.”

I dream of a better tomorrow.

I try to touch the skies.

I hope I will never let go.
