More...Just Because

Spring break is officially over and the students return to class today. I’m trusting the diligently completed their reading logs and maybe even jotted a few lines of verse on the side. Missed those kiddos! Here’s some more of their poetry… just because.

 

“Just Because I’m a man” by J.

Just because I’m a amn

Doesn’t mean I know everything

Doesn’t mean that I’am better than girls

And doesn’t mean I’m bigger and stronger

Just because I’m a man

Doesn’t mean I have all the power

Doesn’t mean I have to prove myself

And doesn’t mean I ‘m rich

Just because I’m a man

Doesn’t mean I’m offensive

Doesn’t mean I should have everything

And doesn’t mean I’m racist

Question: Why do you judge me?

Question: don’t’ you know?

Question: Why do you think this?

Statement: I’m a man

“Just Because I go to School” By A.

Just because I go to school

Doesn’t mean I’m smart

Doesn’t mean I’m dumb

And doesn’t mean I like school

Just because I go to school

Doesn’t mean I like to read

Doesn’t mean I like to learn

And doesn’t mean I’m great at it

Just because I go to school

Doesn’t mean I am focused

Doesn’t mean I am nice

And doesn’t mean I am quiet

Question: Why are we different at school?

Question: Why are we shy at school?

Question: Why do they expect so much

Statement: not all of us are meant to go to school

 

Just Because I am Young BY D.

Just because I am young

Doesn’t mean I don’t listen

Doesn’t mean I just play

And doesn’t mean I yell

Just because I am young

Doesn’t mean I’m rude

Doesn’t mean That when I doing something I am not listening

And doesn’t mean I am pay attion

Just because I am young

Doesn’t mean I don’t track

Doesn’t mean I don’t have feelings

And doesn’t mean I don’t follow the rules

Question: Why do you think I am not pay attention?

Question: Why do you think I don’t follow the rules?

Question: Why do you think I just play?

Statement: I am respectful
