6th Grade- Personification Pt. 1

How can we talk about larger than life things and not get overwhelmed by the idea of it? This week we read The Lament by Percy Bysse Shelley and a piece by a former CPC student. Both pieces used personification as a tool to talk to life, time, and a star shining in the sky. Students got to work on their own pieces using personification to talk about some big questions. Enjoy this week’s poets!


The Mirror Me

Taja S. 

To the mirror me,

If I hold a power what will it be? 

You see all, I should see the future.

You reflect, I should be light.

You can shatter, I should be glass.

I should even see the past.

Why do we lie? I should fly.

What will happen if I die? 

I should be able to make others cry. 

To the mirror me,

what will my power be? 


To The World

Kenidee F. 


To the world

I have questions for you

not one but two

Just a few no more than two

Let me go ahead and ask you

Why do you create trees more so than leaves? 

Why does it rain even though it doesn’t hurt my veins? 

Why does it hale sometimes very stale

In the winter it’s very cold, when the grass grows a lot more. 


Dear Sun 

Janel D.


Dear Sun 

Why can I feel you 

everyday when I’m outside? 

Where do you go when it’s night 


Why do you have no smell to you? 

Why can I see you, but can’t feel you? 


Annoyance, Happiness

Lathan. W


Dear Annoyance, 

I feel you bruh

figuratively not literally, my sister

be doing too much, especially  my

little brother. He just do too much

and he nasty. Spit on my crocs,

nearly punched him. I feel so good 

today. Went to sleep early and 

woke up early. I’m having such a 

good day. I’m talking about yesterday

by the way. 



Alana S. 


Dear Galaxy, 

Your feeling is to see how wonderful you are, dear 

galaxy you feel bright at night, dear

galaxy can you talk to the universe

dear galaxy what does the world look like

the universe smell like what does it

feel like? Galaxy can you breathe fresh

air, where can I find you, can I

breathe you, where do you go? 

I’m glad you’re here cause 

without you, we would disappear


The Big Black Buddha Statue in China

Vernon W. 


Dear Buddha, 

Under your shirt are you fat or are you skinny? 

Dear Buddha, 

How old do you have to be to become a buddha? 

Dear Buddha, 

Do you like everybody? 

Dear Buddha, 

Did you have any pets?
