  • Example Rough Draft: What would you change?

    August

    I am the kid who everyone stared at,

    the one everybody would look away from

    because they were too startled

    by my face.

    I am the kid who had no friends

    but now I have friends, family, and a dog

    who love me.

    I am the kid who will never be normal

    because my differences will always set me apart.

    When you write my story,

    say that I like school and that Im smart, surprise surprise.

    I am the kid who reminds others of a monster.

    Halloween is the only day to blend in

    and hide my deformed face.
