A boy who writes poetry?

Monday, June 22, 2009

Tonight I tackled the mound of papers that came home on the last day of school. Most of it made its way to the recycling bin but you can always count on a few finds that absolutely, positively need to go in the cedar chest (do people even have those anymore?) This little diddy from Quinn's sixth grade poetry book was just begging to be shared. Thanks for indulging me.

I AM
I am an athletic guy who loves soccer
I wonder what I will be when I grow up
I hear the falling waves crash against the coastal rocks
I see presents under the Christmas tree
I want to play professional soccer
I am an athletic guy who loves soccer
I imagine myself winning the World Cup
I feel that I have nothing to be scared of
I touch the soccer ball on a corner kick
I worry about the people who have to starve
I cry for the people that lose family members in the war
I am an athletic guy who loves soccer
I understand that the only way to know God is through Jesus Christ
I say that I'm a good brother
I dream to play professional soccer
I try to be the best I can
I hope to be a loving father like my dad
I am an athletic guy who loves soccer
