I Remember Poem
by Eva Y.

I remember my first steps
it was cold and it felt like
I was walking on snow.
I remember the time I
was holding my sister and never letting
anyone take her away.
I remember the first time I
played with a soccer ball
me and the ball were like a pair.
I remember the first time
I drank root beer
it was like it was my destiny.
I remember the first time
I rode a bike scared and
waiting for my mom to get me off
I remember my dog so protective
loved me and did not want to let go.

My Mighty Hands
by Andrew R.

I love my mighty hands.
They help me write.
They help me hold things like pencils.
If I didn’t have my mighty hands,
it would be sad.

Today's video features current SCORES poet-athlete Linda reading the Shel Silverstein poem Hug O' War, while her teammates support her.  Go SCORES!
