Model Poem

My Voice

My voice is a fall leaf changing colors.
My voice is a two-belled trumpet in harmony for peace.
My voice stands for every child lost to a bullet.
My voice hungers. My voice dives.
I want the ocean’s sea turtles to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
I want an end to mothers’ sufferings.
Take back our endless wars and give us a lifetime supply of sunflowers.
My voice is sunlight, sunlight, sunlight.
