Risha Ahmed (12 yrs) Poems

If I were a rabbit
I would hop all around
I would nibble carrots
Without making a sound

As the sun showed it's first ray of light
I told everyone it's time to take flight
They asked me whether the adventure would be long
I said it would'nt be if we hum a nice little song

We are waiting for the baby
To smile its sweet smiles
We are waiting for the baby
To touch the nursery tiles

She looks straight into my brown eyes
And creeps so very near
She pulls my hair so very hard
That I say 'oh my dear! '

One night I was in charge of the house
When my parents had gone out side
I was having loads of fun
With the radio blaring and paper planes that glide

My family went on a vacation
I gave my father all the persuasion
Can I go and wander in the forest
To catch at least a tiny little pest

It is so beautiful, nice and round
Like a balloon you blow
Spreading light across the night
With it’s warm and golden glow

If only I could fly
And soar up so high
I want to touch the sky so blue
But it never came true

Buzzing around every night
From the ditches they take flight
Sucking blood from me and you
And other animals too

I do not like cricket
I hate it when they make runs
I hate it when they remove a wicket
I would rather read while eating buns

It always bows down to me
Just to give me shade
I wish it could come to tea
To taste the cakes I made

All babies are wonderful
When I see them I let out a squeak
But here is one baby that I know
Who is totally unique

A boy's mind works differently
And a girl's mind also works differently
The boys mostly love to play and fight
The girls follow beauty tips and know what is wrong and right

Look at my hair
Dancing in the air
Look at the trees
Bowing with the breeze

My house is always upside down
It is the funniest house in town
If you throw waste in a dustbin
Or any different type of tin

When I was walking down the road
I saw the big town fair
I got a nice cotton candy
That was bought with my share

Pouring down is the rain
Flowing fast in the drain
Filling water in the lane
Making me wet and looking insane

I wonder how
I wonder why
My moods keep changing
Like the sky

Ever since I set foot in school for my new academic year
It looks like luck has abandoned me
My bus came late to pick me up for school
So guess who is punished, me!

To call me a 10 year old
This is the last day
I’d better enjoy the company of my age to the fullest
Cause tomorrow’s my 11th birthday

Risha Ahmed (12 yrs) Biography

Yo, my name is Risha Ahmed (you probably know that) , and I’m in the the 8th grade (I bet everybody knows that too) . I write poems (oh heck! Who am I kidding? There can’t possibly be anybody who doesn’t know that) . You all have read my prize winning poems and know about all the stuff I won, blah, blah, blah! ! ! So there’s no point going over that again. All I will manage to do is put an insomniac to sleep. So what on earth am I supposed to write in this big blank space staring at me like an idiot? You might expect me to be a perfect angelic girl churning out poems at the touch of a button. Keep dreaming because that is sooo not gonna happen. If any of you know me personally, the word “good” won’t cross your mind. I’m not saying I’m an axe murderer or anything, but I just love being craaaaazyyy! ! ! Yah, so let’s talk about poetry. Hmmm….if u had asked me anything about poetry 7 years ago, I would have sung “Baa Baa black sheep” or “Old McDonald” for you. And the only reason I write poetry is because I’m always in the middle of something important when some dumb lines dance in front of me. I don’t know what is going on at first so I just hit myself on my head with whatever is in my hand (of course it hurts! ! is that a trick question or are you naturally dumb? ?) . And if I don’t write down these senseless lines, they give me a guilty conscience. And a weirdo bulb lights up in my head. Dumb right? No kidding! So now you know I don’t write poems because I’m inspired or anything. I just scribble them down so I can atleast get a good nights sleep. And my other hobbies are: - tripping over legs in school, cracking my head open during games period, piercing a hole in my body because of those stupid rusty nails poking out of the walls etc. Voila! I have finished writing this biography at last! FREEDOM! ! ! Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to give my rumbling stomach some food. Bye!)

The Best Poem Of Risha Ahmed (12 yrs)

If I Were A..............?

If I were a rabbit
I would hop all around
I would nibble carrots
Without making a sound
If I were a lion
And even if I was full of might
As I was defeated by an ant
So I am on a vegetarian diet
If I were a fish
I will swim in the water
I won’t dare come out
Because then it will be hotter
If I were a horse
I would participate in races
And secure the first place
And look at happy faces
If I were a giraffe
I would have a view from the top
But I am still unlucky
Because I can not hop
If I were a kangaroo
I would hop around with a pouch
But I hope I won’t fall down
Otherwise I will say ‘ouch! ! ’
If I were a penguin
I would walk like a baby
If the weather becomes hot
I will have a swim, may be
If I were a monkey
I would sit on a tree
And keep throwing berries
On a poor old donkey
If I was that donkey
I would chew up the monkey
Even though I know
He is not that tasty
If I were a cockroach
I would steal food from the larder
I just hope my other task
Doesn’t become harder
If I were an eagle
I would soar in the sky
And look at my sumptuous prey
From up so high
If I were a camel
I would store food on my back
And then I will move on
Carrying it like a sack
If I were a peacock
I will dance in the showers
Amongst the tall trees
Amongst the beautiful flowers
If I were a sparrow
I will fly or eat grains
Bur even if I only do that
I still have lots of brains
If I were a duck
I will wade in the lake
But I will stop the poem here
Or you will shout, ” stop for heaven’s sake”

Hey Risha, I must say you are a fine young poet. Any one your age could write short verses about their life, but I dare say none with maturity and style like yours. I enjoy how your verses don't exactly conform to rigid sets, but yet remain very readable and uniform with simple language and good rhyming. Keep writing! Talents like yours should be shared with the world =) Love, Tiffanie.

You know Dinesh, I must respectfully disagree there, at her tender age I think it much more important to keep writing on whatever inspires her. A true poet of intelligence will develop a wider range as their experience of life expands and this is quite natural. This is the season of childlike wonder and humour, the angst of the teenager yet to be. With much appreciation to you Risha. Shaun.
