Words are Gifts

Pressing On For Me

I push me

I encourage me

I tell me

That I have to do it

I have to change me

By doing some things

I would never do

But this is the time

To drag me

To convince me

Into achieving

New and exciting


I would have never done

for me.


This just came to me as I peeked into my 4th Graders’ poetry Padlet.
