Forever Young

Our hair’s white with grey stripes, but we are still young.

All of our 32nd teeth are gone, but we are still young.

Our grandchildren call us “Grandpa and Grandma”, but we are still young.

Our veins sticks out when someone greets us, but we are still young.

No one can take away our youth from us.

There’s still some time left before the memories we made together slowly fade away.

The family we’ve created together.

Together we build a never-ending-ladder to reach the bright stars.

We are forever young.

Classroom


Classroom

This is the classroom where I first learned how to read and write in. Now it feels like history. My small brain working hard to remember how the  alphabet song goes. “A, B, C…and what? ” “E, F, G” Miss Flutter sung would remind me. I remember looking at the tall teacher, wondering, when will I grow that tall? Now, I’m taller than the teacher, but the teacher is in the grave. I wonder what my friends are doing. Lilly, Isabella, we used to play tic tac toe together. The blackboard gives me a little white chalk on my palms. That gives me a flashback of when I was called up in front of the class to solve a math problem. And I didn’t know how to solve, so I started to cry.

“Miss, your visiting time is over. Others are waiting in the line, please hurry up.”

I guess my time here is over, but  I’ll never let go of my memories in this classroom.

Ignore

I see a woman, a baby boy, and a stroller. The baby was crying non stoply. The woman was trying to calm the boy down. I wanted to hold the bag so that she can feed her baby, but I also had somewhere to go; the library. I guess I should ignore her.

“Would you like a receipt?”

“I’m good, thank you.”

I see a man just outside the library who needs help carrying all those DCF books. I recognized the books because I’ve read most of them; BAN This Book, Refugee, and Train I Ride, just to name some few. Anyways I have to go home very early today, my homework is waiting for me. I guess I should ignore him.

“Walk side is on, Walk side is on.”

I see a homeless man holding up a sign. “Anything helps, god bless you.”  I don’t have anything to give, accept for this lunch my mom packed me that I didn’t get to eat at lunch time. But this is special to me I don’t wanna it away. Maybe next time. I guess I should ignore him.

Leaves


Orange, red, yellow sunburnt leaves falling

gently on the ground without a sound.

Covering the sidewalk wanting to jump on,

But be careful, you might come upon some throny spikes

Lying beneath your feet.
Orange, red, yellow sunburnt leaves no matter

How much you look at it, the more you’re

Attracted to the beautiful appearance.  
Orange, red, yellow, sunburnt leaves blocking my way

when I’m stepping on the red and white strips.

Oh, I wish I could always be with you,

but I know you have to go and leave for summer

, until then I have enjoyed your

Company.

A Day

A Day
OWW my head

September 10th 2018. Today is a bad(terrible)day. I’ve got so much stress for what I got on today’s test, homework to do and now this? I picked it up, What is this?

“Sorry, can you throw that frisbee over here,Please!”

Argh seriously this day couldn’t have been worst, “Catch it!” Oh wow I should join the freebie tournament.

“Thank you!”

Well at least the kids happy. “What is a L.E.A.F in language arts?” Leaf in language arts is a helpful way to write a short paragraph response. Right? I think I got it correct, only the teacher knows.

“Wow”

“Amazing”

“Stand right there, I'll take a picture of you”

It's Your Voice

It's Your Voice 

When you say my name,
My do-you-know-this-feeling?, heart, starts pounding.

It's your voice.

Listening to you,it's like I'm playing a word game, 
guessing what you're next words would be. 

It's your voice.
 
Your voice is like a waterfall, 
I always want you to keep it running.

It's your voice.

You are a flower and your voice is the honey.

It's your voice 

Your voice is like a drug I'm addicted to. 
No matter how long I hear you ,I long for even more.

Accept me, I don't want anyone to hear you. 
I'm greedy for your voice.

Grades

Grades

I like searching “bsdvt.instructure” (Burlington's online grading website)

I like how I put my email and be one step closer to my successes 
I like typing my secret passcode to finally reveal my homepage 
I like seeing my colorful classes on the dashboard 
I like the feeling “What is new here?”when looking at my classes
I like my eyes filled with high expectations 
I like my smile when reached my expectations 
I like when I log out of my account deleting my first step,
satisfaction of seeing my grades or what will I improve the next time.

Dream


Dream 
It was halloween night,sadly I was alone upstairs in my room. My family had went to my grandparent’s house and I had came home from school late,so I didn't get to go to my grandparents house with them.I don't know why but today I heard really weird noises,like a baby crying,a creepy song about death and,someone screaming. One noise would end and the other would start.I looked out the window,just so cold wind swirling around,I closed my room's window. All the noises stopped and I calmed down.I decided to call my mom.
“Hello mom”? 
“Yeah honey”
 “I'm really scared mom,when are you guys coming home”?
 “ We'll be back in about an hour”
 “ Mom I'm really scared,I heard weird noises and I'm alone” 
“Oh I'm sorry honey but your grandma isn't well”
“What happened to grandma?”
“She accidentally ate pineapple which she was allergic too,so the doctor said he will come in an hour”.
