Here is an example of a poem from Emily

Hear Me

When you are a child, the world seems so simple,

Your mother irons your clothes so that they don't crimple,

It's all so easy when you don't have to pick,

But that's the thing isn't it, to be unique,

As soon as you grow the world becomes darker,

And you want to put yourself down as a marker,

We all have a choice,

It helps us to gain a voice,

However, it isn't always easy,

When everyone can be so teasy,

It's so exciting when you find a piece of clothing that makes you feel like yourself,

It's even better when it has little effect on your bank's health,

You thrift, you find, and you receive hand me downs,

But everyone makes you feel like a clown,

You try your best to express,

But everybody hates you I guess,

We all have a choice,

It helps us gain a voice,

We can only hope that it's heard
