POETRY: Myself and I
Kayla Grogan, 17
Briarwood, NY

Where will I go
Up to the sky or down below
There are many places to go and see
In 10 years from now I wonder where I’ll be
I cannot wait to sing and dance

I hope one day I’ll get the chance
Until that day I’ll hang on tight
And write my poems day and night

When I get to that day
I hope you know
I’ll be that famous poet you once did know
Day after day
Night after night
I’ll write my poems that will inspire kids from everywhere
That I once did know.

Kids will laugh
Kids will play
As they go along reading my poems
Myself and I
Where will I go?
Up to the sky or down below?
There are many places to go and see
In 10 years from now I wonder where I’ll be
