I Used to Be Sand But Now I Am a Pearl ––– Poems @ Darwin

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!

2 Corinthians 5:17
Ethan G.

I used to be a book
But now I am the Holy Bible
I used to be a tree
But now I am the tree of life
I used to be death
But now I am life

I used to be Saul
But now I am Paul
I used to be a fish
But now I am a merman
I used to be sand
But now I am a pearl

 

My Childhood
Aquetzalli S.

I used to be a little cat
But now I am a tiger
I used to be the cloud
But now I am the sky
I used to be a student
But now I am a teacher
I used to be a teacher
But now I am coffee

 

I Used to Be

I used to be a squirrel
But now I am a nut

I used to be a marker
But now I am a pencil

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

I used to be a teacher
But now I am a cafe

I used to be angry
But now I am happy

I used to be a moon
But now I am a sun

I used to be a Barbie
But now I am a girl

I used to be a chicken
But now I am a chicken soup

I used to be a rain
But now I am a name tag

I used to be a clip
But now I am small

But now I am to read

I used to be a tree
But now I am a cat

I used to be the only child
But now I am a big sister

I used to be a bee
But not I am honey

I used to be a caterpillar
But now I am a butterfly

But now I am a rock

I used to like to party
But now I sing
