Hunger Games: The Girl On Fire - Poem by james ivan almalvez

I am Katniss Everdeen
A sweet but fierce girl of sixteen
I live in District 12, poorest as it seems
And in an area we call the Seam

I am also an excellent hunter
I am a good knife-thrower and archer
And Gale Hawthorne is my hunting partner
Because with one another, we always feel better

I lost my father in a mine explosion
So I don't have other option
But to take care of my family alone
Because my mother left us for so long

One very cold night I remember
While I was in front of the baker's
A boy threw bread for me and my sister
I ran towards home thereafter

We live in peace until the public Reaping
Where my sister's name was drawn, Primrose Everdeen
Though chances for her are slim
So I volunteered, heroic as it seems

At the parade, I wore special attire
So I was nicknamed the Girl On Fire
And in the interview, I wore a gown
That looks like fire when I twirl around

These were designed by my stylist Cinna
Together with Flavius, Venia and Octavia
My costume always matches with Peeta
Because of his stylist Portia

I got eleven in front of the Gamemakers
To be star-crossed lovers, we were ordered
The first volunteer of District 12 ever
These things brought me the greatest danger
