I Am

I am a 5th grader who likes to play sports.

I wonder what will happen to me if I don’t succeed.

I hear the blasting noise of people cheering my name.

I see the end of my time of being in the spotlight.

I want to become smarter and stronger.

I am a 5th grader who likes to play sports.


I pretend I am at the top of the list.

I feel the stadium shaking of fear.

I worry I can’t overcome my “goal”.

I cry that I won’t fulfill my dream.

I am a 5th grader who likes to play sports.


I understand I may not become a superstar.

I say that everyone can become famous.

I dream that I am a professional athlete.

I try to get better every single day.

I hope I can achieve my dreams.

I am a 5th grader who likes to play sports.
