Presenting 17-Year-Old Poet: Terrance Jones-

MA Life Part 1

I live my life
Like an unknown book
Sometimes I think I am way to hard
I have little friends

But that gonna end
I wish I wasn’t in this pen

I have three sisters
Two little ones and a big one

Sometimes they make me mad
Sometimes they make me glad

I have a book
It’s red and blue
Full of poetry and painting too

I love writing and painting
Cause it’s fun to do

One day I will publish it
For every one to see
Oh I have a book that’s red and blue

I love my mother like a son should
I will try to be there in any way I could
Because I love my mother like a son should

I have a job
For that I thank Uncle Mel and My Lord
I work very hard at my job
Just to keep my under the table job

This is my life
Isn’t it full and nice
If you don’t
That’s all right
Cause I love my life
