AIM Student Poetry

Thom's poetry class has been busy creating. Here is a poem by Ryan L.:


“What a World”

A woman sits in her house and let the newspapers pile up

A little girl swings back and forth imagining she’s a bird

A man drives from state to state

A farmer herds his cows

A mother holds her crying baby

A husband leaves his family

A boy goes from house to house feeling lost and alone

A family leaves the place they once called home

A student stays up all night cramming for his test

I look out my window as the sun sets and think to myself,

“What a world we live in”
