Description

What I do when someone calls me stupid…
First of all I know they're wrong,
then I find that place inside where I am strong
I walk away with my head held tall
till I find someone that I can call
a friend
a friend

Poems about me, about you, about everyone in the class.
Poems about friendship, playing games, teachers, bullying, jealousy, quarrels and secrets…
Funny, thoughtful and entertaining, Cheryl Moskowitz is an exciting new talent whose poetry is in tune with what goes on inside and outside the classroom.
