Today’s poems are a series of Today My Name Is poems written at Roxhill Elementary during our Fall 2011 season:

Today My Name is Freedom
by Brenda E.

Today my name is Freedom
I feel free.
I pretend that I was in the woods surrounded by trees.

Yesterday my name was Guilty
I heard that people were out of prison
I found a start that gave me hope.

Tomorrow my name will be beautiful
I will forget my name is guilty
I will remember my name is beautiful
because I am so beautiful.

Today My Name Is
by Sarah N.

Today I feel as sad and depressed
as a rainy day recess.
Everyone passes through me
as if everything is okay.
It’s an unknown sadness,
feeling unwanted.

Yesterday I felt as if I would outburst with joy.
An unexplainable feeling.

Tomorrow I’ll be like a rainbow.
Fair negative on  positive events.
I will forget about this bad day,
and focus on the future.
And i will remember every hope from today.

Today My Name Is Rain
by Jennifer C. H.

Today my name is rain.
I feel wet like the trees
I pretend I am the gray clouds that drop the rain.
Yesterday my name was wishing star
I heard the sky calling for me
I found myself stopping the rain.
Tomorrow my name will be sunny
I will forget all the dark days in real life
I will remember the joyful moments.  

Today My Name Is Sun
by Trevonna C.

Today my name is sun
I will bring joy and happiness to my friend and family.
Yesterday my name was rain.
I heard that it will be a storm.
Tomorrow my name will be Tosu
I will forget all of those bad things.

For today's video, we present a clip from yesterday's first game day for our Spring Season of the Dunlap Girls' Team sharing their team cheer:
