My Poem Creation


This is the beginning,
Of a long journey to come,
I find myself wondering what’s left to come,
I’m standing at the door,
The doors to my future that is,
But walking through them is the fear that I feel,
I’ll make it through with or without all of them,
Because this my door way to freedom not theirs.

All About Me

My name is Desiree Mitchell. I was born on January 12, 1996. I live in Winston- Salem, North Carolina; I was also born in Winston- Salem, North Carolina as well. I have two older siblings, and they’re both boys. My hobbies are cheerleading, reading, and running track. I’ve always enjoyed doing all these things, since I was around seven years old. I love reading dramatic stories and mystery stories. My favorite book is called, Death Sentence. I started running track when I was eight years old; I often ran the 100 event. As I got older and started running for my middle school I decided to run the 800 event. I have always liked cheerleading, and I was very excited when I first started. When I started cheerleading, I was seven years old. I cheered for the Winston- Salem Greyhounds, and my last year cheering, I cheered for the Winston- Salem Tiny Rams. Now I’m cheering for Parkland High School.
Over the years, I have changed tremendously. My biggest change was when I transitioned from elementary school to middle school. My whole ego changed. I made lots of new friends and tried plenty of new things. I got involved in many different things. One of the new things I tried out was Battle of the Books. It was a book club, and at the end of the year, a big competition was held for all the middle schools of Forsyth County to compete based on the books you read. Finally, my middle school experience has come to an end, and I must say, I will truly miss it, but the doors of high school are open, and I’m more than excited to enter them!
