“I am (Umm good cool and stuff)” Self Reflective Poems with South Loop Poetry Club

This week at South Loop Elementary School, we listened to “Everything at Once” by Lenka to talk about similes and comparisons. The young poets then began to think about their selves and answer the questions: What do I want to be like? What am I like now? Please enjoy the following poems from South Loop’s Poetry Club!

All About Me

By Morgan F.


I am strong as a gorilla.

I am dead as a bird.

I am light as a feather

I am tiny as an ant

I am tall as the King Kong


I am Nice as an angel

I am mean as a dead ghosty


Who I Am / Wanna Be

By Mia P.


I am tall

as a tree

I am funny as a clown

I am secret as a fox

I am sweet as candy

I am chill as ice

I am quiet like a mouse

I am smart like an owl


I am creative like a painting


I Am (Umm Good Cool and Stuff)

By Ruzzi M.


I am smart like Dogs

I am strong like a human

I am cool like a chicken

I am as good as dogs


I Am Fabulous

By Oliver G.


My self is as fabulous as hair.

I am so brave like a bear.

I like my noodles as fabulous as my hair.

My lips like crimson red lipstick on

my face.

I am as a fast as a cheetah, all

the dominos fall into place.

My self is as fabulous as my hair.

I am so brave like a bear.

I am fabulous!

and you

know it!


My What Future

By Cole C.


I am inventive.

I’m a roblox developer, like Fred W.



My hair is like Preston’s, brown.

Like dry stop soft like fabulous.


Just like the strongest man in the world.


I have lots of money.


I feel fit to the rich as

used for charity.


I am more starty than

Albert Einstein. Like the

business owners.


Being suing is sus.
