Look at me now (student poetry)

By Arame Thiandoum

This year has been hard But i’m making it through

Although I may feel unmotivated I can be motivated too

I’ve grown in many ways I never thought I could

And i’ve learned many things I never thought I would

I have overcome many obstacle

But some I still have to overcome

I never thought I could do school virtually

But look at me now

I have been doing better than I ever have in school

But there is still some fixing I could do

Some people think of virtual school as a bad thing

But I see it as a chance

I have taken on more responsibilities

But it has taught me how to use my abilities

I’ve learned how to take time to myself

Look at me now

Even though I liked the old me

I am loving the new me!
