Radio Poets 2016: Marcela Sanchez



Little Me Big World

Marcela Sanchez, Junipero Serra Elementary School 


I am a person who holds on to things tight

And never lets my mighty strength fail me

It hurts like needles and knives

but it’s worth holding on to.

Little me running in the world of wonder, 

My feet go pit-pat-pitter-patter

Wondering where I go

I do not know

I go back to yesterday

I see us together

that childhood we thought would last forever

Memories just ours alone

thinking about you everyday

so that's what we say

You're that rare special part of me
