As a child in elementary school, I always tried out to participate in the UIL events. Poetry was one of the events I always went out for. A couple of years I was selected, and a couple I wasn’t. Ultimately I decided it wasn’t my thing and tried out other events. Either way, every time I tried out, whether I made it or not I always read a certain poets poems. As you can imagine, that poet was Shel Silverstein. I came across a poem a few days ago and I realize now that the words have even more meaning as an adult. It’s funny how you interpret things as a child and see them so differently as an adult. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite poems by Shel Silverstein. There are many many more..
