"World History," Giovanni Barcenes, Tenth Grade, Townsend Harris High School

For four billion years this world has been revolving Lands have been moving and history changing Animals extinct, humans evolving Civilizations were formed and technology was used Lands were fought for, and many were lost societies differed and cultures diffused Trade between countries and religion spread Cities were built and empires formed Languages said, written and read Bad leaders have come, good leaders as well History is shaped by the decisions made Powerful nations survived while others fell Many have suffered to shape our today Fighting for rights and fighting for peace A better today had its price to pay
