The first poem in my book, “Ride” represents my life in many ways. It explains in the chorus how ‘life is a roller coaster ride’ which is true for most people – especially me.
The second poem in my book, “Battle at Trenton”, is about the war at Trenton against the Hessians and George Washington’s army. They attacked on Christmas day and they won the battle. I chose to write about this in my history poem because when I first learned about it and watched videos on the topic, I thought it was really interesting! Learning about exciting wars, such as this, is what makes history one of my favorite subjects.
The second poem in my book, “Summer”, talks about my favorite season out of the whole year – summer! The reason I enjoy summer so much is because it’s a time to relax and hang out with your friends. It also relieves you from all the stress during the school year.
The third poem in my book, “Tanner”, is about the day we gave up my old dog. We had to give him away when I was seven because my parents said he was too hyper all the time. He also needed more room to run than our small backyard at my old house. The minute my dad took him away, I was screaming and crying very hard because I wanted him to come back. To this day, I still miss Tanner and think about where he is now.
The fourth poem in my book, “My Sister”, is about my younger sister Megan. It mainly talks about how we fight and argue, but also how we are there for each other all the time and have had some amazing times together.
The fifth poem in my book, “Basketball”, is about my all time favorite sport basketball. This poem describes what it takes to become a great, aggressive, and confident basketball player. After playing since I was in second grade and up until now, I realized that teamwork and good defense is what will win games. You also must have a ton of stamina to play this sport because you will run up and down the court the whole entire game.
