Songs of the Winds

Jonah N.

Music is like the wind.

it moves in its own direction.

music can float like a cloud.

or sad like the rain.


wind can lift you up.

or hold you down.

Just like music.

I like music that makes you float

makes you bop.



Trudy B.

I am mot a hateful person.

I don’t get angry often.

I like to smile and be happy

But one day someone said something

Something that make me boil with anger.

Something that sent hate throughout my body. The hate poisoned me.

I started to yell

And as fast as it arrived it was gone

And I was no longer mad.

I was no longer hateful

I simply just was
