I AM
Poem By Maya

I want to share a poem written by maya at age 12.

I am a shy, quiet girl who loves to write
I wonder how some people live without sight
I hear the sound of royal trumpets blaring
I see pristine white unicorns and the pixies they're carrying
I want people to live without the need to fight
I am a shy, quiet girl who loves to write.

I pretend I am a star in a studded sky
I feel sad and lonely way up high
I touch the lace and gauze of a fairy's bow
I worry that people will lose the happiness they once used to show
I cry when I think of fear and sadness at night
I am a shy, quiet girl who loves to write.

I understand you can't change what people do
I say if you believe, you can do anything you want to
I dream about a place with no fighting or crime
I try to help the homeless, even if all I can give is a dime.
I hope to make a difference with all my might
I am a shy, quiet girl who loves to write.

Maya you write well, so follow your love
People without sight live with their insight
If you believe, you can do anything you want to
I am sure you have grown up and shed your shyness
I am sure that you are still writing and loving it
One day I hope to read a book of poems written by you

To Maya, the little poetess with compliments !!


You say you are shy, loves to write, ok
You see pristine white unicorns, ok
