She Liked My Poem
I wrote for my poetry project in 6th grade.
A poem made up of few lines,
But all the guts and inerds from my soul.
I pored over ever word and syllable,
Scared to reveal the fears and resignations I had
About me, I was afraid to let anyone see.
But I turned in that poem,
Yearning for approval and acceptance,
And maybe for my teacher to tell me
What I had written was wrong.
Maybe I wasn't just me,
Maybe there was greatness somewhere
A greatness I could not see because I was eleven.
She confirmed my own fears
But, she did like my poem.
