Proud of Being Proud

by Chael’s, aged 9

I’m proud of my achievements
I’m proud of my life,
I’m proud of my family
And overcoming strife.

Helping my little brother –
It’s not easy being a sister
Manipulating his choices
To make him a good mister.

My auntie helps my brother and me
She flourishes us with love,
I don’t know what I’d do without her
A best friend like a turtle dove!

I’m proud of my achievements
I’m proud of my life,
I’m proud of my family
And overcoming strife.

Starting a new journey
Within a wonderful school,
I didn’t know it’d be this easy
To find friends so charming and cool.

I was elated but scared –
I felt butterflies on my first day,
I didn‟t know what to do
Or what I had to say.

I made lots of best friends
Really, really quick,
They‟ve been ever so kind
School is absolutely SICK!

I’m proud of my achievements
I’m proud of my life,
I’m proud of my family
And overcoming strife.

Life doesn’t stop there
It’s reeling and fun,
I enjoy doing gymnastics and dance
The fun has just begun.

Entering competitions
A little bit like this,
I always try my best
Never give anything amiss.

I’m proud of my achievements
I’m proud of my life,
I’m proud of my family
And overcoming strife.
