I am extremely thin and delicate.
I see the huge trees and sticks around me.
I hear the river and the birds above.
I smell the cold clean air.
I taste the dirt around me.
I feel cold and lonely at night.
I know my family lives right next to me.
I wish people wound not step on me.
I say that I want to grow larger I am a small green piece of grass.
My alone hike was a lot longer than expected. When I first started out I was happy and singing. When I reached about halfway I was a bit scared. The things that were running through my mind was 1 did I take the wrong trail? 2 what if I was lost forever? 3 how Meg was feeling
Singing the whole time helped me stay calm and not panic too much. I enjoyed it but I totally figured out that I'm a person that has to always be with someone else.
