There was a storm
A very harsh storm
The rain took away my friends
We had no place to go
Then we saw a cabin and hid in it
While we were hiding
There was a lot of screaming
We hid as long as we can
Until the storm went away
It happened in a short period of time but seemed so long
People have been killed and injured
But now there was a beautiful rainbow over us
I have never been more happy to see a rainbow.
I opened my eyes to see the world I am in,
to look right into it’s eye.
To see it’s pain,
to see it’s happines,
And to hear it’s cries.
I could feel the chills crawling up my spine,
as if it was a spider crawling up it’s web.
It told me that everything wasn’t alright.
That there was more violence to come,
That there was more pollution to come,
and that there was more racism to come.
It was scared for the person I might be,
but it had hope for me.
Telling me to shine.
Telling me to the Light!
Cause even if the lights turned off,
there was a spark of light left.

Protection and justice is everything you want from a person in blue.
What if they can’t give that to you.
Innocent people being shot and killed.
Families crying because their kids, parents, friends are getting hurt.
People afraid or lacking trust.
The wrongfully accused not getting their justice.
Being tackled to the ground with the concrete staring you in the face.
Protesters being blocked and crowded.
Getting labeled as “suspicious”.
Clouded judgement stopping the people in blue from doing their jobs.
Citizens being tossed around, pushed to the ground, tackled, and hardly able to breathe.
Humans being treated like animals.
This is all for what?
That’s what I would like to know.

The first time I won a prize
I was 8 years old
I won this prize because I won a race
The announcer called my name and it felt great
I could smell the sweet aroma of paint.
It felt a little greasy and heavy .
It looked pretty big
When I went home
My mom was so happy for me
I felt so accomplished
Knowing that I can accomplish anything
And always follow my dreams
Blue is all I see
The water crashing right beside me
The seagulls chirping and the fishes swimming
But what they don’t see is poeple polluting our sea
Plastic, Garbage, and glass oh my!
If we countinue this they might all die
By starting today reuse, reduce, recycle
We will be saving a dozen of animals you don’t want to lose
By recycling paper we will save some trees
By reusing plastic bottles we will save the sea
By riding your bike more often you will help keep the air clean
And so on,and so on ,and so on
There are many task to keep out trash away
From danger from us to beyond the sea
