because he got inspired by death

and does the wishes of death

The Sun

Michael M.


The sun was a little

star that was

made from light and

if you get too close

to it then it will make your

like lava and from far

it looks

like a light that has

been on a strong white light

and it makes friends

it was the man star.


The Dragon

crystals in the cave

the crystals gave the dragon

and even light and dark and ice

magma and shadow

and people try to defeat the dragon

but the dragon

won the battle.
