I have a VERY SPECIAL poetry Friday in store for you today. I have a student from the local middle school who is doing a job shadow with me today. She aspires to write for children, so I've asked her to provide the poem for my blog today. Our topic for today is this: a time you got in trouble. I gave her five minutes to come up with a little something, and here's how it goes.
One day when I was late for class, I might have gotten detention.
When I got home to my mom, detention I did not mention.
The guilt built up inside of me; I just wanted to scream.
The phone call came, I was ashamed. Detention just got me.
Woo hoo! NOw let me see LOTS of poetry today in honor of Ashleigh! Also, any words of advice you can give her would be GREAT. Have a good Friday. Look for my poem as a comment today.
My Mission Statement
I write to serve, to unite, to educate. I write to share literature and flesh out ideas that may be of interest to others. I write to document an emotion, experience, or a blip in time. My mission is to write in such a way that the reader is reminded that we can find humor in all situations. It's one of the great blessings of life.
