"SaY" it with a Poem: Family

By Aariyan Deshpande, Grade 5; Deerfield Elementary School

Parents, siblings and friends,

Always stick till the end.

I fell and cried,

but guess who was by my side?

Mom and Dad were there,

To give all there love and affection with great care.

To do homework and to clean up a mess,

Brothers and sisters share your stress.

God made friends to make families extend,

They help you in the good and bad,

And they will make you always feel glad.

Teachers teach you math, science and art,

To help you through life and make you smart.

Times can be tough like falling off a cliff,

But there’s always family to give you a lift.
