Sammy saw a slimy snake

She screamed and scurried

She saw how sad the snake seemed

She snuck back up to the snake

Scary as it seemed

Surprisingly the snake stayed still

She sat down slowly

Still a little shaky

Stayed put the snake stayed

Sammy stared at the snake

Slowly realizing he was not so scary

She noticed the snake started to slither

Still however, the snake stayed by Sammy

She was no longer spooked

She grew comfortable with the snake

Sammy remained still

She was overcoming her fear of snakes

Sadly the snake slithered away from Sammy

Still there she sat

So proud that she was no longer scared.
