100 Word Challenge

It all started when he was yelling at me. I curled into a ball and started crying but he kept yelling. I slowly drifted asleep trying to ignore him, next thing I know the door slammed, I knew it was over. My heart slowly felt like it was cracking piece by piece.

I hear a gentle knock on the door so I walk over and open it. It's him.
“Hey there sweet cheeks,” he says.
“Don’t call me that, were over,” I replied sternly.

I close the door crumble into a pile of tears on the floor.

Swing of Change

Diamond wall paper covers the rotten walls pictures hang presently straight scissors lay flat on the polished counter.Soft music fill the room with a warm buzz. Sharpening his razor on the strop harry walks over to his best customer, ScccHHHHH! The razor  scrapes over the mans face ,shaving of the tiny hairs. suddenly the grammar phone stops harry walks over puzzled, he tries to crank the handle but it doesn't budge." I can take that hone to fix." Said Stanley, Harrys best customer.

All off a sudden harry jumps up and runs to the window some one was playing the trumpet. He looks out the window there is a black man standing out side of Harrys cut. Storming outside harry rips the trumpet out of the mans hands. But the man disappears, harry storms inside and places it on the counter. Glancing at the picture on the wall, he picks up the trumpet and starts playing. Suddenly the trumpet starts playing wild jazz music.

It looked like a crazy balloon out of control.What on earth is this trumpet doing? Harry thought to himself. Minuets later harry pics up the trumpet, he starts plying friendly jazz music. He plays so hard that he almost makes friends with the black man. Looking in there mirror sees a black man staring at him. Later that day harry wipes of  WHITES ONLY off the window.

Jews

Click here for Jews Presentation

The past few weeks our class and another have been learning about injustice, injustice is where something is fair to one race but not the other. For instance American Slavery or Woman Voting. Heidi, Mahana and I researched about Jews, above is a slide show we made about it. The impact this has given on my life is that, I feel very privileged to live with my family and not in a prison camp.

Hawaii

Lately I have been in Hawaii with my family. We did lots of fun activities on the third day we went on a tour up to the north shore we jumped off a massive rock, swam with turtles went paddle boarding and we went to the dole plantation and ate pineapple soft serve. A few days later we went to Kona on big island there we stayed at the Hilton witch was  very fancy we went on a train or a boat to your room. At Kona we went swimming with dolphins, saw baby flamingos, went night snorkeling with manta rays, went zip lining which was the funniest time of my life. Then we flew back to Honolulu and chilled on the beach.

Cold Water Experiance

I glide onto the water slide and zip around the sharp corners. Reaching the lake, the bitter water engulfs me like an old wrinkly octopus. My fingers, wrinkled and damp, felt like a scaly fish.

Clambering onto the water trampoline, everyone bounced like baby kangaroos on a sunny day. Children ran from side to side to make others fall off, eventually they drop like flies. Jumping into the murky water wondering what my feet will discover.

Child Racism

Thousands of kids and adults every year get bullied and abused because of their colour, religion and ethnicity. In a 2009 report, 2/3 of the criminals receiving life sentences were not whites. Black children are much more likely to be suspended and expelled from school than whites.

Zetas Metaphoric Poem

Zeta is a petite cottage with a slender picket fence, surrounded by soft white tulips.

Zeta is a compassionate and loving kitten, purring on your lap.

Zeta is a soft meringue, melting in your mouth like butter on a pancake.

Zeta is a little blue mini, ready to see the world like a ant to a crumb.

Zeta is a flowing willow tree, swaying in the wind.

Our Trip To Moturoa!

On Friday 17th our school went to Moturoa (Rabbit Island.) and I wrote a story here it is:

I feel the sand cascading down my toes.
As it falls of my toes it joins the rest of its group.
I see kids climbing trees like little monkeys.
Clambering as high as skyscrapers.
I hear the soft roar of the ocean in the distance.
Waves pouring onto the shore.
I'm wondering if it is going to rain.
Clouds tumbling over the hills.
I love the beach.
