Just Like A Tree I Will Grow

written by the boys in detention



Just like a tree I will grow

Because I don’t want to stay in the same place

I want to grow from my mistakes

And learn what to do next time

-Jordan 13

Just like a tree I will grow

Because of my problems

Because they will make me stronger

-J, 15

Just like a tree I will grow

Because I am still young

And I have a lot to learn from my experiences

And build in strength in knowledge

And I can’t give up

Because my family needs me to be strong

And grow from my mistakes

-S, 19

Just like a tree I will grow

Because it is part of life

And it is natural.

We all grow in many different ways

-A, 17

Just like a tree I will grow

Because I am strong

I’ve been through a lot

And learned from my mistakes

Learn from my past

To better my future

-D, 19

Just like a tree I will grow

Because everyone goes through changes

-L, 16

Just like a tree I will grow

And be successful

And have a good future for my family

And take care of them

-I, 15
