My Life Summed Up

My name is Jessica, I’m 13 years old
I’m a real chatterbox so I am told
If you ask me to, I would join you on a hike,
fishing, swimming, cannoing or, on a bike
And, there is always a song I shall sing
And, until the trip is over, I will sing about everything.
If there is one thing I hate, it’s definitely school
For one, I hate following every single rule
I hate getting alot of homework every night
I hate watching students starting to fight
I hate having to wake up before eight
I hate getting detention if I’m late
I hate teachers who are mean to me
I hate having to be perfect like they expect you to be
But, sometimes school (well rarely) is OK
I guess it’s somewhere I can go to spend the day
I also hate food with no taste
I think food like that is a total waste
Ok I’m fussy, guess it’s true
and, trying to stop is something very hard to do
but, besides the negatives, something I don’t hate
is hanging with my best friend which I think is great
My hobbies include drama, singing and, writing
These things I find quite exciting
and, even though I’m not the greatest at everything
joy and happiness is what they bring
I guess that’s all I have to say
about my life and how I spend each day
So, this is the story all about ME !!!!
The story of my life, the story of Jessie
So, I Hope this poem you adore
And, if you want, I would love to write more
