I Used to Be an Idiom But Now I Am a Metaphor –– Poems @ Moos

For our final writing week, the students reflect on how they’ve changed: over their lives, this year, in writing, in silly ways, and just about everything else!

Funny
Abby A.

I used to be shy
But now I am brave

I used to be big
But now I am small

I used not to be a poet
But now I am a poet

I used to be a writer
But now I am a reader

I used to be an idiom
But now I am a metaphor

I used to be personification
But now I am hyperbole

I used to be a simile
But now I am the world

 

I Used to Be…
Jezalyn D.

I used to dance
But now I am a statue

I used to be a video gamer
But now I want to be an artist

I used to be a book
But now I am a poem

I used to be a baby
But now I am a poet

 

I Used to Be But Now I Am
Isabella R.

I used to be pepperoni
But now I am cheese

I used to be reading
But now I am math

I used to be tacos
But now I am pizza

I used to be a pool
But now I am sand

I used to be good
But now I am amazing

I used to be ice cream
But now I am cookies

I used to be flowers
But now I am roses
