I am just sure that many of you must wonder how I ended up with such incredible writing skills. After all, this type of writing isn't taught in schools...thank goodness.
Well, I believe I have had this gift most of my life. I ran across a poem that I wrote in 8th grade. Sadly, I believe 8th great was my acme. I will say that my writing "finesse" hasn't changed one bit.
Before I show my poem, I'm going to write out a few of the lines from some of the poems that were written by other kids in the class,( the teacher had put a book together of everyone's work). Reading these also will make it obvious I was never really in a group of my peers.
They all wanted to be so deep or so serious.....
"Show yourself, I won't laugh. I scarce remember how..."
"They sway to the slow music of the wind, as if dancing to a waltz....."
"Short people are the same as, anywhere we go. They even wrote a song about us. I may be the shortest everywhere I go, but I'm the tallest in my mind...."
Pretty deep stuff for a bunch of 8th graders.
OK, That was a short sample of a few clips from a few of the other students poems.
While walking around a store one day,
A person I happened to see.
I knew who she was. But wasn't quite sure.
Oh, who could that cute person be?
As I stared at that person in wonder,
One thing I noticed of she.
That person was making fun!
That person was mimicking me!
And then I saw the frame.
I laughed right out in glee.
I looked in that mirror and said.
"That cute little person is ME!"
The End....I got an A+
