WALT write for an audience. One challenge I have when writing poetry is making it interesting by using great vocabulary.
Do They Know?
Despair and Sadness fills my heart
Unwanted, not needed is all we are
War is upon us we need to go
Bombs rain down as loud as thunder
Shrieks echo throughout the city
Looking for somewhere we belong
Kilometers and kilometers we quickly run
Just so we are safe and out of harm
Rude, power-hungry people destroying the land
Killing, Torturing, Lying
Ripping families apart
Some countries welcome us in to their arms
Others turn us away at first sight
Most families help us
But the rest of them don’t
Do they understand what we have been through
Or do they just think we are like everyone else?
