I know theme is truth told through text
Like a child discovering
Life is full of choices
Choices come with consequences
Consequences can lead to growth
I know parallelism is about patterns
Like a child observing
Geese flying south
Gardeners planting crops in rows
Waves breaking the shore
I know how to write a summary
Like a child telling her first story
Who did it?
Where and when did it happen?
Like a child learning in school
Because I read
Because I write
Because I live
