No Muhammad Ali

by Royal G

No Muhammad Ali but I love to fight,

I’m better than Kevin Durant AKA, Young Money Snipe.

I’m tuff at Basketball don’t mind the height.

I didn’t mention football but I’m swift like Taylor,

on November 13th my mom went into labor.

I still ain’t mention Ja I’m most hated,

I’m just like Juice world, I’m so enervated.

We went from 2-3 into 2-2-1 plato got baited.

When I Play Fortnite

by Tommy H.

When I play Fortnite,

a light appears in the night,

I’m like Batman

if I see you doing something

bad at Walmart

I’ll get

to bring you to the light.

In the light of Gotham’s night,

a figure takes flight

a hero in the shadows,

a symbol of light.

His cape flows like a river,

his eyes gleam like a star,

he stalks the streets, a phantom,

the dark knight, appears in the light.

Chika’s Poem

by Chika O.

Mum says, I’ve always been a fast reader.

Dad says, I’m meant to be a leader.

My sister says, don’t let your height go to waste.

My brother says let your skills show in the light.

I question, why not all?

My Passion

Melanie H.

Music is joyful and I’m very thankful for music to make me hopeful.

When I play music I am playful. Some music is powerful enough

to make me peaceful and make my heart full.

I like drawing,

anyone who doesn’t is appalling.
