"I Am" Poems by Michelle Santos

I am Jupiter.
I come from far, far away,
but I am ready to be discovered.

I am one direction:
justice and equality for all.

I am not Batman.
I do not wear a mask.
But I wear a hijab.
I'm not trying to hide 
from society.

Michelle Santos is a a high school ESOL teacher.  As part of a lesson plan, she helps her students write "I Am" poems, self-defining pieces demonstrating understanding of imagery, metaphor, simile, etc.
