Look up, look up in the sky

heaven, heaven is so high.

Angels are so very nice,

angels are cooking rice.

Hello, hello where are you,

I am hungry I need food,

If I do then give me a clue,

I’m in a school like I’m new,

In the tower, I’ll see the view,

from far away I’ll miss you too.

The thunderstorm is

thunder in the sky

like little rocks

falling from the sky

I love pizza in the sky

I eat pizza every time

My phone was not charged then it died

I have ice cubes down my pants

I sleep late last night

I miss Kobe all the time

Please take care of Gigi

I play basketball every time

Yo estoy con los angeles todos los dia

Y tengo mi familia a mi lado.



Allison Z.


I play soccer in the space

and then I get hit in the face

then I went to the pizza place

then I solved a wonderful case

and I went to get my money from Chase.

-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
