Biography of Dang Xiong

My name is Dang Xiong and most of my poems are about nearly anything I like. My poems are usually about nature though, I write Haikus too but I don't really put them on here. I went to about 3 elementary schools, World Cultures Magnet School, Pike Lake, and Valentine Hills. I reunited with some of my friends from Pike Lake at my middle school, Highview, me and most of my elementary school friends were separated in 5th grade because Pike Lake had 'shut down.' I went to Magnet School from K-1/2 of 1st grade, then Pike Lake 2-4, and Valentines Hill grade 5. I went to Highview Middle for 3 years and Irondale High School for 1 year, I am currently at Park Senior High School. All of my friends are special to me and they are each unique and special in their own ways. I am glad to have met all the people that I know because each and every one of them are the people who shaped me to be who I am today. I started writing poems in 7th grade, I got my encouragement from my teacher Mrs. Haqq. I don't know about my future plans yet and what I want for my future job.

Taken For Granted

The forests, one by one, they disappear;
Tree by tree falling down,
The roar of chainsaws against tree trunks,
The forests, taken for granted.

Drop, drip, drip, fresh water down the drain;
There's soo much fresh water that we'll never run out,
But we will, it's not an unlimited source,
Water, also taken for granted.
