Tornado, by Jailenne Perez

I am a tornado: wild, black, scary, and mean.
I arrived so fast nobody was ready for me.
I carry cars, bathtubs, houses, trees,
and I don’t care.
I see mothers crying for their kids, kids scared
of the loud noises, and I don’t care.
I feel so happy watching everybody suffering.
I become more powerful.
I’ve been wanting to do my job for a long time
and I’m happy I did it.
I have come to tell you,
I am a tornado: wild, scary, and mean ­– and I love it.

  • My Imagination

    by Dalisa Saldana

    Going away with you
    is like going to the moon
    and coming back.

    It's like sitting
    on the beach and
    listening to the waves.

    It's like going to China
    and exploring
    other cultures.

    You are my imagination
    where everything
    is perfect,
    colorful, and happy.
