08. Jakob W.'s I Am Poem

I Am Poem
by Jakob W.

I am athletic and energetic
like a monkey in the trees
I have brown hair and brown eyes
like the curtains in my room.
I am a slender plant or a slender tree
I am athletic and energetic
like the dogs at the dog park
I like to joke around
like a comedian or clown
I’m a tsunami, a hurricane, an earthquake.

I am athletic and energetic
life is a game and I have the ball
basketballs bounce in my dreams
I play one on one with Derrick Rose
I am the last second shot.
