Introduction into writing
English is one of my favorite classes because I like to read, the stories are interesting and they help me remember vocab words. I like the way class is relaxing and unstressful. This portfolio shows how I have grown over the first semester.

Charlie Poem Introduction
I never noticed how beautiful Alice is
Pigeon soft brown eyes and feathery brown hair
Full lips, like she’s pouting
Charlie calm down,
He cries out in joy
Her bare arm touched me
This was an implication that all of his problems have been solved,
Of course not a world of just make believe,
Things just don’t happen that way
And it doesn’t feel right
I don’t feel like I’m accomplishing anything,
And that’s okay….
You’ll climb higher and higher to see more and more of the world around you
