Student: Olivia Brand
Bio: My name is Olivia. I go to BIS. I’m in 6th grade. I love to go swimming, play sports, and speak Italian! Most of all, I LOVE to write poetry!
A whisper, secrets, rumors, lies.
Will I have to say goodbye?
Are they true? Do they hate me?
But am I just mean and lazy?
Who knows, who cares?
It’s just whispers, secrets, rumors, and snares.
