Radio Poets 2017: Pamela Alvarez

Pamela Alvarez


Pamela Alvarez, Junipero Serra Elementary

Sadness is like the sky raining.

It’s the first salty tear coming out of you eyes.

Like my mom having problems at work.

It’s also like me falling down on the floor and crying.

Sadness is me being lonely at home.

It’s like when Valentina and Zelia are not in class.

It’s when I have trouble with having to call my Dad.

It’s like when my sister and I stay at home without my Mom.

Sadness is when my Mom tells me hard things that I don’t understand.
