"Philippe Petit. The man on the wire.
Walking between these two buildings had become his most passionate desire
A seemingly impossible feat to do
but impossible was just a word, and he would not stop until he was through
In a city that was old, dirty, and full of skyscrapers
He was soon to be the newest buzz, front page news of the newspapers
It took many months to prepare for this act
an act so astonishing, the law had no choice but to give him a free pass
As he walks the wire, he is finally free
and there is no place, even beyond earth, the he would rather be
a bird in the sky, completely at peace
his true sanctuary, his true release
the time comes when the gods tell him it's time to step down
so he hops off of the rope, and onto the ground
to embrace his new fame, in an old, dirty town"
I chose to share my poem about Philippe because i am not very good at poetry. I do not like writing poetry that much which causes my poetry to turn out not so good. Because of this i was very proud of my work on this poem. I was proud that i did something outside my comfort zone and excited about how well it turned out, it was a big gain for me and something important i learned this year.
PART 2 AND 3
The last subject i want to write about is the charity organization W.A.R.M. This is a charity organization that puts together food to donate to families who are less fortunate and are in need. The reason i want to write about this organization is because i have volunteered there and know that they do a lot of good. It is important to help those who need it and we need to spread the word of being selfless and how to help. It's important that organizations like these stay around and in order to do that we need to spread the word so that is why i chose this as my last subject and what makes it so important.
