MS Poetry Project: Who I Am statewide winners!


By Chloe Shaw


Today I am a flame

Something to hold close so I don't go out

Today I am a spark

Something that can start and shine

Today I am a flare

An unsteady gleam 

Today I am a blaze

Something that can sting and burn

Today I am a forest fire

Spreading dangerously and rapidly 

Today I am warmth

Here for comfort and need 

Today I am smoke 

Ready to fill up your lungs 

Today I am the sun

Shining brightly spreading warmth here for clarity
