The Children

Here’s a poem that I wrote based on the picture. Tell me what you think:

I should be able to keep it

It was the only thing that kept me going

I have been so jealous

She gets everything she wants

I don’t have to be nice any more

    Hi Marin!
    I think your poem was really good! I liked how you told it from the perspective of the boy and what you think he was feeling. I also like how you put the picture that you wrote off of in your post because it helped me understand where your poem came from.

    Hi Marin,
    I really liked your poem. I liked how you showed us the picture with the poem, because I would have never thought about the picture that way. I liked how you took it from the boys perspective of the boy because most girls take things from the girls perspective, so I liked how you changed that up. Is this your favorite poem that you wrote? Bye!
