Self Portrait

My hair
black as ink
It is rough or soft
but they are so confused
What to be
My skin
brown like a piece of wood.
I am known for good art
and outstanding talents.
My birthmark is like a line
like a letter L
My height is small, but tall
so confused what to be
like a small door.
What people say about me
that I'm a nice girl
My eyes sparkle
like the morning sun.
My mind
so smart people
can't believe it.

Salome, 2nd grade
