Radio Poets 2016: Elan Villareal



The One and Only Mom

Elan Villareal, Garfield Elementary School

I believe my mom is special

very special

She looks like me

She has brown straight hair like the soccer field lines

She has light brown, green, and yellow eyes.

Brown like dirt

Green like grass

Yellow like the opposing team’s jerseys

She has a smooth nose like our soccer balls

She has short eyelashes like small invisible lines

She has small freckles like tiny stars in the sky

She has a big smile like rainbows

I believe my mom is special

very special
