Poems by Joey

I was cleaning out Joey’s folder today and I was so touched by a poem he wrote. It was like I got to take a peek into that big 10 year old boy of mine.

I AM
I am an older brother and a Christian.
I wonder if I will go to college early.
I hear that there will be Blue Ray discs soon.
I see apples be devoured by me.
I want a game and a watch.
I am an older brother and a Christian.

I pretend to be smarter than I am.
I feel confident.
I touch coke and drink it.
I worry about my siblings a lot.
I cry when Miles goes to the hospital.
I am an older brother and a Christian.

I understand that Miles is handicapped in many ways.
I say that I am a Christian.
I say that Jesus died on the cross.
I dream about video games.
I try to be smart.
I hope that Miles will be healed.
I hope to be a good older brother.
I am an older brother and a Christian.

He also did a poem using his name. Here it is:

Jokes a lot
Outrageously involved in books
Evil to sisters
Yells a lot

Worries a lot
Impossible to beat at video games
Laughs a lot
So funny
Outrageously good at Rubix Cubes
Not like my brother

I did cry (for the first poem). It must feel so good to have proof that you're an awesome parent.
