Treasure Island

Leah Martens


Hero


She is somebody’s hero, she is my hero

She does not jump into burning buildings

But she saves me every time I need to be saved

She is always there to rescue me, and give me a hug

A hero is someone who makes a difference

A better ending for someone else

She has worked her whole life

To give me the best future possible

She deserves to be happy for the rest of her life

She has been hurt to many times, to many ways

She was abandoned when she was a little girl

By the person who was suppose to be her hero

She was left to raise 3 children and manage a farm

She has always been there, and she will always be there

My mom is my hero, and I will always love her

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
