All We Want is Peace

Cagatay ONCÜ
Pioneer Academy of Science / 6th Grade

If one man shot another man what good comes from that?
Does that shot give food to a hungry man, across the world?
Does it give a safe home for a family who is in danger?
Does it put clothes on the back of a cold, hungry child?
Can it give a poor man the same sense of pride as a rich man?
Does it allow us to live together as a whole instead of lightning as individuals.
Can one bullet make two enemies put aside there differences?
Can it give a poor man with a family to support and no job a feeling of importance?
Can that one bullet give a child born into poverty a future?
Can it stop the same thing from happening two miles away?
Does it stop, do or help anything at all.
No, it doesn’t.
So remember all of you politicians and soldiers,
we don’t want your guns, tanks or wars, all we want is PEACE.

Forgiving Friends

Amity School Grade 4

My best friend, my best bud,
That's what you'll always be to me.

We might fight, we might get mad,
But remember I am always glad to be your friend.

Sometimes I don't understand why we fight,
Sometimes I don't know what to do,

But remember that I will always, but always
Be able to forgive you!

I Wonder

Amity School

Sometimes I wonder.
What I would do if my friends weren't here.
They helped me, and cared for me,
when my parents weren't there.

It's going to be a very hard time for me to leave them.
I'll probably cry, or say bye,
I went through this before and my friends cried,
the tears on their faces say bye.

It was hard for me,
I thought I wasn't going to make new friends,
but I was wrong.
Look at me now,
I have many new friends who care and support me.

I have a class which is wild, but friendly.
Thinking they're the best, but to me they are.

A New Friendship

Nilufer CAN

The first time I met her we talked a lot

Of a new friendship
A friendship that
Would last from this day until on.

Like the Amity Dove

Muzaffer A. Erdogan
Amity School

Here's a poem you might enjoy
I love my school
I listen
I play
I'm a kid
I have friends
I wish that
I could fly with my friends
I love the dove
I fly with it

Well maybe when I'm in heaven
I could fly
Bye bye.

Wake up your slumber!
Can't you see there is hunger.
We have to stop this right now.

But most people don't know how.
Let us come up with a solution!
May be make a peace institution.
For the love of humanity.

Let us just stop this insanity.
And live in peace and harmony.

Fine Day

Amity Schoo

It is a very fine day,
The horses eat the hay.
But when it comes to pay,
They don't eat everyday.

When the children play,
Everybody builds up the clay.
But the horses eat hay
and there is no more clay.

Some people come today,
Like its their day.
People don't like to lay,
But they have to play.

The very big day
Has come today.
But the good luck is
You don't have to pay.

Future Will Come

Pioneer Academy of Science / 6th Grade

Future will Come
Future is the future,
Past is the past,
We should all focus on the present,
And try to make it last.
Whatever is going to happen tomorrow,
Whatever happened today,
We are the future,
So get out of our way!
You might want to deny it,
You might want the present to stay,
But the future is coming closer,
We will lead the way!

The Meaning of Friendship

Amity School

I stand there, watching my friend,
I know she is the one who cares,
I know where to go when I live a
Heartbreak, I know where to go when I'm in trouble.

I may not always see my friend, but I always know she's there.
She is the sister I never had, my one and only reason to stay sane.
It's an unsinkable friendship, the friendship between her and I.
We laugh together, and we cry together, she teaches me the lesson of
life, and my face starts to glow.

She could read my mind, and finish my sentences, she is the only one I could look up to.
My friend is the other half of me, for when I give up on my dreams, she
shows me that friendship is real.
We cry tears, but our laughter drowns them out.

When I give her a smile, and she gives me a laugh, our happiness rises and
Our sadness falls with all of the jokes that fill the room and go right through
My young soul.
I truly mean it when I laugh with her, because she accepts me for who I am.
My friend, to me, is like an angel, but she is missing her wings, and she
Makes me wonder if she is lost in this world because heaven is a long way from here.

My friend teaches me the meaning of friendship, and of life, these are thing
Only a best friend can understand.
I wish I could see her all the time, I wish her smile is on, all her life.
It's sad to think some day we will be apart,
But as long as the stars shine in the starry night, our friendship will shine in
my heart.

Birds flying in the North
Bears go in their dens
People have snowball fights
While animals hibernate.

Squirrels find food for their young
Animals are going to sleep
Until the spring.

Amity School

I see Betul trying to go up the hill
I hear birds chirping and Seyma and Melih running down the hill
While I sit back and relax
I see clouds moving by the second
I feel warm cause the sun is shining on top of me.

Then Betul asks me, "Do you want to go down the hill together?"
I say "ok"
While I am going I am running down the hill I feel the wind past my hair
I hear Betul screaming and having fun, while running down the hill
"Do you hear that Izel?"
"Yeah! I hear that that's the ice cream truck."

Yasemin YÜCEL
Amity School Grade 6

I hear people calling you,
But who will bring you?

You are a flower that needs to be bloomed,
But who will help you bloom?

I hear people cry your name,
But who will hear you?

I know people need you,
But do they deserve you?

On the Ground

Pioneer Academy of Science / 7th Grade

There's blood on the ground,
Flowing like a stream
There are shards of glass on the floor,
Shinning like diamonds.
There's a burnt match on the floor,
What they used to light up the bomb,
There's too much for humanity to bear.

* * * * *

In the Future

Bilal OZ
Pioneer Academy of Science / 7th Grade

In the future it will all be different
Blowing trees yellow bright daffodils
Shining to the Sun
Oh, the future when will you come,
It's not fun and games in the future,
More technology means more work
Metal arms walking in the streets  
Don't feel, don't care
Oh, the future when will you come
The future might not be a pretty place
It could be harsh it could be pleasant
You probably think this could be unyielding
Oh, the future when will you come.
