What my family means to me

By Jayla Wilson

So many heard
From every direction occur
From here to there
From there to here
There is so much that appears
Everywhere from our ears
Ears hear
Mouths talk
And feet walk
When we walk we also talk
There is so much that I love
So much that I need
When I don’t need
Just like when I see
So much to see
So much to do
So much to hear
So much to love
But all I need is my family above
No more talking
No more plotting
Got to get back to my mama and daddy
To fix me some supper baby
So I can live and be with my family
So that is all I can write
See you all tonight and goodnight
Mama is calling
Daddy is loving
See you all tonight
For all fright.
