2020 Wisdom from Alpha: Cornerstone Academy Winning ACE Poetry Contest Poems

By Riley, ACE Poetry Contest Mascot

I’m very excited because here are the first winners of the ACE Poetry Contest. They’re from one of my Alpha Public Schools too, which is cool. These poems have it all too – thoughts about journeys, dreams, stars, hope and this crazy virus who is the tagger in a game.

Arf, arf, arf. Here they are – the winning poems from Alpha: Cornerstone Academy.

First Place Prize

Journey With Dreams
By Christine Le, 6th Grade

The light blue breeze,
Touch the sky
With cotton candy,
That’s up high…

The raindrops began to fall
Like never less,
Nature loves them all

The storm’s passing
Came with a breeze
With people’s wonder,
Finally at ease

To see the colors,
Of beauty’s past
We wonder…
How long, can a rainbow last?


No need to worry
I use to hear
The love will never, disappear
As soon as the glowing ends…
Your journey, has just began

Second Place Winner

In 2020
By Jadon Nguyen, 5th Grade

The virus has started,
Then Technology has been used more,
People now departed,
Away from each other,
Ending up staying with their family,
Including with their mother,
They now go to amazon,
And add items to the shopping cart.
Buy video games, including Mario Cart.
Watching youtubers, like maryushart.
Also the virus, spreading the infection
People hate the germs, they wear the masks
Is this gonna be our generation?
It’s all a game
The game is freeze tag,
The virus is the tagger,
We all freeze, staying in one place
That one place, is Home.
Everything is pain,
Ever since it was here,
People die of it,
Instead of population gain,
It’s advancing
There’s social distancing
It’s like an apocalypse
It feels like the end of the world
But there’s light
There’s hope
There’s a rope,
Climb it, it could be over
Then we’re all free
Run around
Also go on playgrounds,
Go to shops,
And also buy a plushie.
It’s not the end,
Before was pain
Now you can meet your friends,
Now the world will be unfurled.

Third Place Winner

Little Star
By Vivian Nguyen, 3rd Grade

Little Star Little Star Glowing in the air.
When You see me i am just a little dot,
but in reality i am as big as a car, Little
Star Little Star you see me when you
sleep, But when you wake up you see me
Disappear! Little Star Little Star Please
come Back!

Congratulations Christine, Jadon and Vivian. You did a great job, as did all the other Alpha: Cornerstone Academy poets.

Let’s continue to treat ourselves to a poem. More winner and their poems to come.
