“My Face” by Kim Hye-Soo

Girl pointing and laughing

When friends tease me,
I feel like teasing back.
My sniffling, crying face.
My face, red like peppers.


친구가 나를 놀리면
나도 놀리고 싶어진다.
훌쩍훌쩍 우는 내 얼굴
고추 같이 빨간 내 얼굴


This poem was written by Kim Hye-Soo, a child who participates in a poetry group called Perpetual Tree (계속나무), which started through partnership with a public library. As part of the program, kids take a walk around the area surrounding the library, then write about what they felt and experienced
