Personification Poems Pt. 2- 7th Grade

After some schedule changes and a week off, we were back at Perez to finish off our personification poems. There were so many great pieces written this week, some to the universe, the ocean, to money, even one written to a pet who won’t stop nipping at fingers. Enjoy this week’s student pieces! 



Why are you so monumental? 

Why do you have to be heard to earn? 

Why do you disappear in less than a day? 

Why do you multipy by any number? 

You can go into anybody’s hands. 

Dear Universe


Dear Universe, 

What does it feel 

like to hold the earth? 

How do you exist? 

What makes you expand? 

Based on what I know what

have you seen? One question

can receive an infinite amount

of answers in our case. 

Do you know I’m here? I’m pretty

sure you hold an infinite amount 

of life. We don’t want to be alone

in here. If you can see, feel, hear. Talk to me. 

The Future


Future, future, future, 

tell me what would happen next

Future, future, future

is something gonna happen to Earth

Oh future would you tell me if 

one day I can go to see in

El Dia de Los Muertos, 

my dog and grandma again.

Future, future, future

what is it like to know

what would happen next?
