Version I created to model for students while they were creating their own.

Friend, lovable, calm, kind,
Sister of no one,
Animals, my family, my life.
Happy when I play with my cousin.
Proud of my dog, excited when 
     I play with my family.
My family, my dog, my life,
Helpful, playful, happy,
Chucky, blood suckers, Saw.

C., IL,

Happy, friendly, lovable, and kind,
Sister of Josselyn and Angelin.
Lover of sisters, animals, and soccer,
Who feels happy when she plays soccer, 
     Who feels helpful and always joy,
Who needs friends to be happy, who
     Needs family for life, and who needs
     Life to be happy. 
Who gives love to my family, who gives happiness, to
     People, and who is friendly.
Who fears when I go to haunted houses, 
     Who fears when my mom tries
     To hit me, and who fears when all
     The lights are off.
Who would like to see One Direction, who would like 
     To see happiness, and who would 
     Like to see kindness.
Resident of C.,

Friend, brother, fighter, and Chique,
Brother of Miguel Roberto.
Lover of rock, Rise Against, video games, 
     And sleeping.
The joy of sleeping, the fun in games, the 
     Power of Rise Against.
Things I need are a house, something to 
     Keep me going, and my family's love.
I give others respect, I give others who
     I am, and I give others headaches.
Things I fear are nighttime, being alone,
     And going home alone.
Things I would like to see is my motivation
     In person, bestest veins on Earth, and
     Finally seeing the collection of my favorite 
I am a resident of I.,

Friend, Musician, Artistic, Intelligent,
Sister of Leonora and Jose,
Lover of God, drums, and family,
Who needs God, love, and happiness.
Who feels excitement when playing drums, love with 
     family, joy when going to church.
Who gives joy, God's word, and love.
Who fears being alone, not having love, being forgotten.
Who would like to see people being nice to others,
     God, and people having love in their hearts.
Resident of C.,

Friend, cool, keyboard player, and soccer fan.
Little brother of Ruben, Taylor, Luz, and Julie.
Lover of video games, soccer, and dogs.
Who feels great when reading, scared when surprised, 
     And silly when writing.
Who needs games, school supplies, and clothes.
Who gives headaches, toys, and school stuff.
Who fears spiders, my sister, and scorpions.
Who would like to see my little sister, my dad, and my pet.
Resident of C.,

Intelligent, friendly, girl, and funny.
Sister of Yamila and Ricardo.
Lover of family, friend, and school.
Happy when smiling, busy when
     Working, and intelligent when learning.
Friends, family, and love.
Laughter, headaches, and naps.
Bad grades, my brother, and spiders.
Eifel Tower, China and the largest
     Building in the world.
C., I.,

Crazy, sleepy, artistic, and fighter,
Brother of Miguel, 
Games, writing, playing.
Joy when drawing, excited when writing, and glad for writing.
Phone, family, friends.
Dizzy, tired, relaxed.
Chucky, máma, la Llorona,
Grandpa, grandma, friends,

Puerto Rico and another thing that I am is peaceful.
And I like apples.
October because it is my birthday.
Live in New York with my family.
And I also like to go to the attic.

Fantasy is fiction.

It is not real, and could never happen in real life.

It's made up, and you

See like animals talking- that is fantasy.

You see monsters in a fantasy. Don't be

Scared. It could never happen in real life because remember

That fantasy is not real, and can never happen in

Real life.

You thank its soul.  But

You go bye, bye!

Your life flies

Up in the

Sky.  Your

Poor Me

When I was poor,

I was alone.  I

Was in my room

Alone, trying to

Do poems by

Myself.  I

Hope I was by my

Self in the room

With nobody just

Me by myself.

Meat, Fish, Pork

My meat smells worse than my feet!

Smell my foot.

It stinks.

Meat tastes good and smells like a

I eat fish and

Meat at the same time.

Fish is like a dead

Rat because it smells like a rat.

A dead rat.

Salvador L. 2007.
