"Memorable Day," Anastasios Karayiannidis, Sixth Grade, PS 122Q

An eventful time
emotional environment
There I was
waiting to hear
my awaiting future
The man walks in
looking down on me
telling a few facts
slowing some pictures
of the inside of my leg
My leg, all injured
and harmed
was under medical care
But what the doctor said
showed me the truth
that life has times
of struggle and pain,
yet you can overcome
with hope and change
And this how I lived
the coming months
surgical procedure
that had me go numb,
I waited for the day
for my abilities
to come so
I could be as before,
run and enjoy
just like every other kid.
