If I were In Charge of the world

If I were in charge of the world

I'd ban mornings,


cats, and also homework.

If I were in charge of the world

There'd be longer nights,

lots of parties, and

concerts every weekend.

If I were in charge of the world

you wouldn't be judged.

You wouldn't be bullied.

You wouldn't be alone.

Or broke.

You wouldn't even have sisters.

If I were in charge of the world



and adults,

Would still be allowed to be

In charge of the world.

Matt my pet rat

A few years back

I had a pet rat

It was gray with some black

and I named it Matt.

He loved to eat cheese

my hungry fellow Matt

He sometimes made mt sneeze

and was scared of my neighbors cat.

Many years passed

Matt started to age

My bestfriend he was

One dark night he went away

My Best friend went to the sky

My fellow Matt good bye

Free Verse

This semester is almost over

it was pretty rough

because it was my first high school year

but I'm kinda getting used to it

next semester I'm sure ill do better

I didn't fail anything

but it was a close call

I hope I do better


I know I will do better

Next time you see me,

I will be smiling from

the good grades

on the report card.
