Friendship

friendship is…

exploring different adventures.

going through fun and hard times together.

a popular thing most people want but don’t know how to get.

Friendship is like…

the waves at the beach, it comes and goes.

fast food restaurants, when you need something they come

right away.

a movie, they have different personalities with different scenes of emotion.

Friendship is as…

grateful when you are celebrating thanksgiving.

a job interview, they see if they make you a good person.

fragile as an egg falling off the counter.

Friendship…

sounds like: screaming fun on a rollercoaster.

feels like: the comfort of the softest fuzzy blanket.

looks like: a perfect sunny morning that could sometimes turn into a cold rainy night.

Friendship is…

something that completes life.

a book of adventures just waiting to begin.

Friendship is like…

a flashlight that helps you see, even when it’s dark.

a key that can unlock endless possibilities.

Friendship is as…

powerful as a lightning bolt.

bright as the stars that shine at night.

Friendship…

sounds like a soothing wave on the beach, swishing back and forth.

feels like the sun coming out on a rainy day.

looks like one soul in two bodies, stepping out into the world.

Friendship is

a fun room to entertain me.

a treasure guarded by trust.

Friendship is like

a helper bot that helps me get around.

a comedian that gives smiles.

Friendship is as

wanted as video games for kids.

fragile as a tripwire.

Friendship

sounds like a bird chirping joyfully.

feels like the gentle breeze in a hot day.

looks like a warm fire in the darkest night.

Friendship

Friendship is

a box that needs memories.

a pair of glasses that needs someone to look through them.

Friendship is like

a tree that needs leaves.

a pen that needs ink.

a river that needs a path to flow.

Friendship is as

useful as a house.

necessary as water.

helpful as a doctor.

Friendship

sounds like the ocean that meets up with another ocean.

feels like the rainbow that shines as the sun.

looks like two hearts coming into one.

For My People – AH (LA7 – Rio del Valle)

“For My People”

Inspired by “For My People” poem by Margaret Walker

This is for my people,

with creative ideas

and like to play around.

For my people,

who are called lazy

who are said to be poorly behaved.

For my people,

who are loved by their parents

who are energetic.

For my people,

who are cared for

who are sent to learn.

For my people

who should love their parents too.
