One Syllable Story: Held

May 7, 2008
By Joel Ortiz, Mesa, AZ

A boy was held back. He did not do his work;he was lazy.He would sleep, he would dream, he would talk and he would play. No time was left for school.His dad yelled, his mom cried, the boy did not care. One day he did care, when he saw his friends on track. He knew they would pass high school and he would not. So he did his work. He tried. And tried.And tried. Did he pass? You guess.
