there was one dude that got up and was like “alright… everyones poems have been phenomenal, but uh . i didnt know what to write about, so i just put my favorite words together and made sure they rhymed . here i go” and it was absolutely beautiful halfway thru he started speaking in french

homio said: you’ll be great!!!!

im feeling better abt it… im gonna edit it a bit more, but since my mum left the apartment ive been like saying it over n over n over n OVER and editing and editing and then saying it again… so i hope it sounds good!!
plus i heard other kids poems and it made me think “i love all of their poems, no matter what they’re abt or their ability!!! maybe ppl will feel the same way abt my poem”

i guess it refers 2 when u cook, which i dont like it being strictly that bc i love cooking n baking but i dont want some dude getting an idea that that’s just… what i will do . always
but i like it bc one girl was like “my socks and underwear match, im feeling good abt today #wifemeup” and i was like . yea . u go girl . wear those matching socks

i rlly love the term #wifemeup

our teacher is videotaping our poems so mAYBE i can get my spoken word from her…. i dk if i would be able to put it online because of papers and the fact that there might be like the back of kids heads in the vid but WHO KNOWS i just want helpful critique and i want to show it bc even tho im having a mini anxiety FEST over here, brewing in my own fear of public speaking, i’d like to show u guys what i can do and i want to ask u all what i could do to make it better
