THAT SUMMER                           By: Malachi Hibler

-Roses are red

-Violets are blue

-Nah, Nah, I cant start my poem off like that.

-Here, I’m going to come up with something new.

 

-It all started on June 6th, around 2:00 PM on a Saturday to be exact.

-Arriving at the University of Kansas, a shy, slender built young man eager to begin a new lifestyle and that’s a fact.

-He unpacked and got settled into his dorm.

-The feeling of a boy to a man was instantly being born.

 

-Now, this young man came across so many new faces.

-All of who are from similar and different races.

-For the most part all of the young man’s peers were friendly.

-Little did his peers know the young man considered them as family?

 

 

 

-Umm, enough of that sentimental stuff, not to be rude.

-But lets get to the most interesting part of this poem; the food.

-As you enter into a buffet, you would use a metaphor to relate to “Heaven.”

-However, for the young man, receiving 3 meals a day, he considered it a blessing.

-The food was great, so he couldn’t complain.

-His peers kept a close eye on him; to make sure he wasn’t insane.

 

-The young man enjoyed every class the program had, which he had wished.

-From learning about epigenetics, environmental health and environmental justice, it changed his perspective about life and eating fish.

-Art, poetry, technology and multicultural workshops were very much needed.

-Each workshop made the young man more outgoing, enhanced his public speaking and most importantly, he succeeded.

 

 

-ACT, ACT, ACT F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!

-Sitting in a room for 3-4 hours reviewing trigonometry and identifying fragments.

-The tests on the other hand, B-O-A-H, it created stress.

-Nevertheless, due to reviewing, the young man saw his results rise and not to boast, he felt his ACT score was by far the best.

 

-So here is the conclusion, THE YOUNG MAN SURVIVED 6 WEEKS!

-He accomplished so many goals this summer many that just swept people off of their feet.

-Now, I know what you’re thinking, this poem may sound quite familiar.

-That’s because the young man in this poem name was Malachi Hibler.
