Earlier someone today told me that I should try and write poetry so here is my first poem it is a haiku and haiku are generally about nature so here we go: Cherry blossoms bloom, slowly falling from the tree into nights clutches.
I am sorry if this gets whited out there is nothing I can do about it.
Have you ever gotten a horrible, no good grade?On one normal September day in fifth grade language arts after lunch I will never forget one big spelling test.Usually I do very well on tests and school in general, but spelling had never been my strong suit or favorite subject.I never thought that spelling would have such a large impact on my school life and career.
“Ok class, I will hand back our spelling tests before we start class”, Mrs Brown, my language arts teacher, said. I was the fourth one to get my test back; I was scared to look. Then as I flipped it over I noticed a big fat miserable forty seven percent at the top of the paper. As you see I had never been fond of language arts class but I was never that bad at it either. I was very devastated and started to sob silently. The rest of the class period seemed to drag on for hours and hours.
As the rest of the day went on I was having a mental break down. I couldn't think or concentrate on school or any of my work. Mrs. Brown asked how I was feeling because she saw how I was on cloud nine. When I told her how heavily disheartened I was she said she would help me get my grades back up to an A. When I told her about it I also told her how I was scared my mom would be let down that I had gotten such a rotten grade. She just gave me the encouragement to just give it to her, and inform her all that I was doing to get my grades back up.
Finally getting that bad grade made me think of what I was going to go to school to be. I decided then and there on that day; that I was going to be a successful marine biologist and to work hard at my academics. To work harder was going to be problematic, but it is not impossible. Having that dreadfully awful grade taught me work hard for what you want, and if at first you don’t succeed try try again.
