"Me" by Sierra Jones

I am short, like a tree trying to grow but is lost in the shadows.

I am skinny, like a small toothpick that easily breaks in half.

I am intrepid, like a deer going into a lion’s territory.

I am caring, like a stray mother cat who gives all her food to her kittens.

My blue eyes are like the ocean washing back and forth with the wind.

My brown hair is like moss hanging from the top of a short tree.

My freckles are like drops of mud plopping drop by drop out of a faucet all over my face.
-- Sierra Jones, age 11.
