    3) In the morning - 4) My ball

    Please check these stories. I repeated the pronoun I several time because I was comparing it with Arabic language.

    In Every Morning

    I wake up every morning and remember my God. I go to my father and mother and say them Good morning. I perform the ritual ablution then pray. I eat my breakfast. I arrange my books, notebooks and tools. Then I take my bag and go to the school.

    This is a song so I wrote it in this shape. I repeated the pronoun its several time. Is it wrong?

    My Ball

    Look! Look! My ball is running.
    Its approaching me and moving away from me.
    Its running and amusing me.
    Its activating me and strengthening me.
    My kicking of it doesn’t hurt it.
    What prettier and glorious of it

    My Ball

    Look! Look! My ball is running.
    It's approaching me and moving away from me.
    It's running and amusing me.
    It's activating me and strengthening me.
    My kicking of it doesn’t hurt it.

    See above. With the song, the only part I don't understand at all is the last three words. Do you mean "What is prettier and more glorious than it?"
