Best Poem of Elena Plotkin


I grew up with a bunch of others,
Just me with my sisters and brothers.
When I was younger, I was green and tough,
But as I grew older, I discovered life could be rough.
I changed and grew softer, some called me yellow.
But I was no coward, just a very cautious fellow.
Because where I come from you never know the day,
That your whole family gets eaten or just carted away.

If I Stay Where I Am

If I stay where I am, will I eventually disappear?
When did standing your ground become a show of fear?
The doors have no locks but the clocks run all the time?
There's no hole to fall through, there's no window to climb.
But one thought keeps on running through my mind,
If I stay where I am, will I eventually disappear?
