My 12 year old son is beginning to write poetry in school. They used an example of describing themselves with imagery called I am somebody and wrote a poem about themselves.
I wanted to share his first official poem. He is such a joy and it is wonderful to see him growing and learning. He is very excited to begin expressing himself in writing on the school's blog. I have a vision in my mind of one day a young man walking across a stage and walking into a new life full of hope and promise. Thank you God for my son and all the adventures we have together! He is awesome!
I am somebody
I am the eagle soaring above the sky searching for things unknown;
I am the color green wise and strong;
I am the smell of water in the air, after it rains; the cool calming smell;
I am the wind silent but present and able to storm in a second;
I am the sound of the rain hitting the leaves and dropping to the ground;
I am the taste of the orange bursting with many unique tastes;
I am the texture of running water refreshing and cold;
I am the son of West Virginia wild and wonderful;
I am the dream of a teacher passing on knowledge they have learned;
I am somebody!
