Voy a hacer un rompeolas
con mi alegría pequeña...
No quiero que sepa el mar,
que por mi pecho van penas.
No quiero que toque el mar
la orilla acá de mi tierra...
Se me acabaron los sueños,
locos de sombra en la arena.
No quiero que mire el mar
luto de azul en mi senda...
(¡Eran auroras mis párpados,
cuando cruzó la tormenta!)
No quiero que llore el mar
nuevo aguacero en mi puerta...
Todos los ojos del viento
ya me lloraron por muerta.
Voy a hacer un rompeolas
con mi alegría pequeña,
leve alegría de saberme
mía la mano que cierra
No quiero que llegue el mar
hasta la sed de mi poema,
ciega en mitad de una lumbre,
rota en mitad de una ausencia

On this project I think about if my grade reflects my work ethic I think does not because I do believe that I truly worked hard to do a few extra sentences here and there and to make a poem that was good. I realize that just because I did do extra sentences, that does not mean they were all correct. My grade was a meeting or approaching expectations score and that is what my sentences were, therefor I believe at the same time my grade does reflect my work ethic. I did put in work on this assignment but it was not all of good quality. I did follow the project guidelines. I did everything that was asked in the project. I do think this did impact my grade. I say this because I ,did the bare minimum for some sections. Like when I was supposed to do at least eight sentences, I did exactly eight sentences. This depending on the grammar gives me a meeting expectations score. Some obstacles I faced with this project was creating the sentences. Creating a sentence is easy but making one that exceeds expectations was challenging. Also the analyzing the poem and changing it into my own thoughts and words was hard.To better my work performance I think I need to do more than just meet expectations to boot my grade up. So stop doing the bare minimum.
