"I Am" Poems

e.e. cummings they aren't

Written by #1

I am tough but I can be gentle.
I wonder what the future is.
I hear gun shots!
I see war fair.
I want a Wii game.
I am tough but I can be gentle.

I pretend I am a soldier.
I feel sad.
I touch the cold steel of tanks.
I worry if the soldiers will come home.
I cry.
I am tough but I can be gentle.

I understand that war isn' fair.
I say "NUKE 'EM!"
I dream when there will be peace.
I try to be a soldier when I am old enough.
I hope that the Germans do not start World War III.
I am tough but I can be gentle.

#2's

I am a lego maniac who likes white bread.
I wonders about some books?
I hear blaster fire!
I see a clone trooper!
I want to play Wii.
I am a lego maniac who likes white bread.

I pretend to do nothing.
I feel mad.
I touch a blaster.
I worry about #3.
I cry war cries.
I am a lego maniac who likes white bread.

I understand math problems.
I say LEGOS!
I dream weapons.
I try to do good.
I hope for peace.
I am a lego maniac who likes white bread.

I actually think #1's has some potential with some editing-this was their first shot at poetry writing.
