A Good Day/ A Bad Day
by Rebecca

A good experience – I learned
not to lean back in chairs
You might fall
and break something important,
like your head
I hit my head last night

A bad experience – With
hurting people
I’ve hurt a lot of people
and it’s no fun

A good experience – Trying to learn
to dance
from my friends
But they’re not good at
and I’m not good
at dancing

A bad experience – Hurting myself
That’s not fun,
and it hurts
Even though I say it doesn’t,
it does
