7th Grade- Personification Pt. 2

I waited all week to read some more personification poems by Foster Parks 7th grade class! Here are a few more that students had continued working on and finished in this week’s session.


Where Does Life Take Me?

Aleyah T. 


Dear Life, sweet sweet life where do 

you take me


I don’t care if it takes 10 years

for me to see the world I just 

want to see you


From crying to standing up with a 

smile on my face, life happens for any 

and every reason


And when I die that’s my time for

me to rest, I’d have to lay on a 

hospital bed, call me to the Lord

to be in the dirt for life. 


The Lord calls my name and asks

“How was life down there?” and 

asks about college why you 

didn’t go. 


He did, now I had a life to live

but he just didn’t listen. Ask 

him why we have people to mess

up, he just said I don’t know

Where does life take me? 


My Ocean

Eummani G. 


Oh ocean 

my ocean 

how you glisten and gleam 

how you smile at me

how you are- so cold

or at least that’s what I’ve been told

so big and blue

I don’t know what to do

Oh how much I wish 

that I could swim in you

but I can’t swim 

it makes me so dim 

so down 

that I might drown
