Poetry: Made of Glass

by Naomi Vega-Sanchez


My face made of glass 
My hands made of glass 
My heart made of glass

I am made of glass 

Beat me and I’ll break 
Push me and I’ll break
Hit me and I’ll break
Yell too loud and 

I’ll break


Naomi Vega-Sanchez is 13 years old and in the 8th grade. She enjoys writing poetry because “I can write down what I cannot actually say.”
