Poem: Success

by Ali Ebraheemi and Christopher Salvey, 8th grade, Sayre Elementary Language Academy



To be put on a test

To try your best

Your mind is a mess

You feel the stress

But you can’t give up yet


To reach the sky

You gotta try

So work hard, and you won’t be denied

That is a sign that you are one of a kind.


People are after you

They might try to stop you

They might try to fight you

But jealousy in the air

And that will ignite you.
