I Am

I am an ordinary preteen trying to accomplish my goals.
I wonder what the camera REALLY sees.
I hear the birds chirping and flowers blooming.
I see inspiring heroes every day and I try to be one.
I want to be rich, with lots of money.

I am an ordinary preteen trying to accomplish my goals.
I pretend I didn’t hear gossip, whistling throughout the hallway.
I feel the goodness in myself and others.
I touch everybody’s heart, trying to be friendly.
I worry about my life and health.
I cry when I am hurt, physically and or emotionally.
I am an ordinary preteen trying to accomplish my goals.

I understand that good things in life are hard to get.
I say if you don’t succeed, try again until you do.
I dream about my life in 20 years.
I try to be happy, as much as possible, even though life has its downs.
I hope everyone respects each other because everyone has feelings.
I am an ordinary preteen trying to accomplish my goals.
