I am …

By Katie DeCubellis

I am a friendly girl whose name is Katie
I wonder how old I will live to be
I hear people, animals, and many sounds
I see the things that are around
I want to be the best I can be
I am a friendly girl whose name is Katie

I pretend that it’s sunny when there is rain
I feel other people’s pain
I touch the hearts of many I meet
I worry in someway that I may be beat
I cry when people are mean to me
I am a friendly girl whose name is Katie

I understand that I should be kind
I say the things that are on my mind
I dream that I will do most things right
I try my best with my brother not to fight
I hope the world I’ll be able to see
I am a friendly girl whose name is Katie
