Poetry

Welcome my middle school POETS,

I am moved! The first round of your poems are truly incredible.  I look forward to reading your second and third drafts. Before sending your poetry to me, please remember to title each poem as such:

Jane_Smith_308_8_2nddraft_TheseDreams_Poem

first name_last name_homeroom_grade_#draft_poem’s title_poem

I hope you take time to read my two drafts and make comments. I am in need of feedback during this time of revision.

Here is a poem written by one of our very own!  This poet turned it into a “Spoken Word” script!

(4) Of making my dreams come true
(all) But I was
(4)  I never thought accomplishing my goal
(3)  could feel this honorable
(all) But it does
(1)  I never put my head down
(all) Never
(2) I never turned away from this
(all) Never
(3) I never threw my dreams away
(all) Never
(4) I never gave up
(all) Nor should you
(5)  You only have this moment-make sure it counts
(all) Keep on going no matter what
