"Dreams," Patti Grippi, Sixth Grade, IS 14

Dreaming about how life
would be in the next years
Suddenly i feel many fears
As i walk down the street
I have become older and walked
to my own beat to junior high
I feel very strong and superior
about becomming an older student
I felt like i can do this and i could.
Life is like a flower
there is a process of change
and it may  be strange but
inside you are the same
