Number 30

I Did It! I Can't Believe I Did It!

©2012 LaDena Campbell aka justateacher


I started this challenge

Not really sure how it would end

Didn’t know if I would get this far

Didn’t know I would find new friends

During this challenge I wrote about things

My students and the things they go through

I have written about me and my health

Wrote about some silly things, too

A poem for every day is a tough undertaking

A challenge to oneself to do your best

To see if you writing can compete

To see if you can ace the test

I am proud that I got this far

When I was so sure I couldn’t do it

But once I got started with writing

I learned there is really nothing to it!

      Congrats, justateacher! I was impressed how you wrote a lot about the kids you teach. I haven't read all of yours but hope to read more. Great job! What a ride, huh? I published about 15 original, shared about the same of old stuff. I'm impressed with anyone who can write a poem a day. Awesome!
