I Used to Be Today But Now I Am Tomorrow –– Poems @ Avondale Logandale

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!

I Used To
Yelitza Z.

I used to be a unicorn frappuccino
But now I am a unicorn

I used to be a fish
But now I am a mermaid

I used to be a book
But now I am paper

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

 

I Am Everything
Merileise V.

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

I used to be a water bottle
But now I am the sea

I used to be a heart
But now I am heartbroken

I used to be the snow
But now I am the wind

I used to be a tree
But now I am the grass

I used to be a shell
But now I am a pearl

 

But Now… (Part 2)
Ximena C.

I used to be a rainbow
But now I am a rainstorm

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

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

I used to be 8 years old
But now I am 9 years old

I used to be a banana
But now I am still a banana

I used to be crazy
But now I am calm

I used to be sad
But now I am happy

I used to be in trouble
But now I am not

I used to be quiet like a slug
But now I am loud like a tiger

I used to be addition
But now I am subtraction

I used to be green eyes
But now I am blue eyes

I used to be Melissa
But now I am Ms. Beth

I used to be a carrot
But now I am a potato

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

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

I used to be wood
But now I am wool

I used to be a skunk
But now I am perfume

I used to be a girl but now I am a queen
I used to be a pond but now I am a ocean
I used to be a sheep but now I am a teddy bear
I used to be a sheet but now I am a book
I used to be a baby but now I am a girl

 

I Used To
Elizabeth M.

I used to be today
But now I am tomorrow

I used to be pink
But now I am purple

I used to be water
But now I am lava

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

I used to be mole
But now I am tamales

 

Growing
Irving C.

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

I used to be an empty water bottle
But now I am full

I used to be blank
But now I am colored

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

I used to be a listener
But now I am a speaker

I used to be a member
But now I am the leader
