The Ground Beneath Me-- Grade 8 Poem

Hello guys, I tried to come up with a blog post for today but came up blank. So here's one of the poems that I got published in grade 9 (wrote it in grade 8). Please keep that in mind when reading it, lol!

The Ground Beneath Me
Friendship is like walking,
you have a rhythm,
you have a beat.
You trust the ground,
to keep you on your feet.

I trust you like I trust,
the wind to blow.
I trust you like I do
the grass to grow.
I trust you like I trust
the sun to rise…
and to set.

You are my rhythm,
you are my beat,
you are the one that keeps me,
on my feet.

  3. This is cute! You should make a Hallmark card out of it because I would totally give it to my friends. It describes best-friendship perfectly.

  9. =o) That's a lovely poem. I don't even want to see what my 8th grade writing looks like, let alone show it to the world. :shudder: You're a brave brave woman.

  12. I came to give you the liar award, but I see that you just did that - and I missed it! Bummer. I caught up, though, and enjoyed your lies/truth. :-)
