Simile Self Portrait Poem
by Errol S.

My hair is dark as the moon.
My eyes are brown as chocolate ice cream.
My arm is strong as a rhino.
My legs are wiggly as a frog.
My chin is hard as a rock.
My cheeks are soft as a pillow.
My neck is round as a circle.
My feet are smooth like a turtle shell.
My ears are shaped like a square.
My forehead is flat.
My mouth is hot as a fire.
My chest is hard as a boulder.
My hands are soft as a baby’s chin.
My stomach is hard as a tiny rock.
My back is flat as the wall. 

Simile Self Portrait 
by Juvanni P.

My hair is as spiky as a porcupine.
My head is as big as the moon.
My ears are as big as an elephant’s ears.
My nose is as long as a witch.
My mouth is as big as a whale. 

Simile Self Portrait 
by Tamar M.

My hair is as black as a hole.
My head is as big as a watermelon.
My neck is as short as an elf.
My chest is hard as a rock.
My stomach is as thin as a toothpick.

Simile Self Portrait
by Abdiriza A.

My hair is like big as a bush.
My eyes are like big as a ball.
My nose is like sharp as a knife.
My cheek is as soft as a marshmallow.

Today's video features current SCORES parent and support Charm S. reading her original untitled poem inspired by the SCORES program.
