It's funny when you become everything you always swore you wouldn't. It's funny when you realize you don't stand for anything. No passions. No motivation to fulfill any dreams you once had.
I'm the one who sees silver lining. I'm the one who won't be caught whining. What good is there for complaining? With that, you won't be gaining. The one who works hard is content, The one who's lazy is not.

My heart fills with fear-- constricting-- tightening-- as the deadline draws near. Time too precious to waste; stress envelops me as I work in haste.   No time to play, no time to talk
Sun-damaged hair bouncing between my tired eyes, the flapping of my stretched skin with every stride,
The minds of many assemble one A mind that rivals those of many
See the world how you want to, Go to sleep happy and you wont be blue, Who knew when they were young what they could become, Think and do is true for everyone, Why does a dream have to stay a dream,

Walking through life's thought, how much does it take to hurt the worse,  pain of my childhood rushing by "ouch", so many sigh, just thinking about which time is the best time to cry,
Out of all the colors of the rainbow, what color is the most in
Why look at the bad Just because the good's standing behind? Why take time to be mad, When happiness is what you want to find? Why fold to stress When patience will mold you a better way?
Hello! Attached is a video I made for my poem, if you could watch that as well. Let it load a little if it doesn't work right away. Thank You, Enjoy and Share the Poem with others!
College is like a concert.You get there, you park and move yourself in to stay for a while.
I get to see the sun shine and that bright blue sky All the cars on my street passing me by I don’t know what the driver is feeling
Your lungs are collpsing from the feeling of despair, That feeling inside seems to be too much to bear, But slowly you breathe, And time begins to cease, And you realize just how much worse that it could be,
I used to think it was the end, That I was all alone Without even a friend. I wondered how some people sat on a throne, While I went about With my head down, Wanting to shout
                           Burgeoning Awesome         Life is full of mysteries
My dear friend you can rest assured  Love will heal the damage caused by war Don't you worry about the rain You won't know joy without some pain Don't stop to think how long it will take

I wither my life on a deserted island, Accursed to spend eternity awaiting a stray hero[1] ! A hero who will use me, and a man who will abuse me
“Bow down!” says the enemy; “Bow down before me!” We will not kneel, however; We will not yield to animosity even as his banner waves up high— placard of antipathy in the country of equality.
Striving to find myself It is difficult There are many forks And not enough guidance I want to choose but my mind grows blank Decisions decide your life May it be bad or good you decide
I have not one favorite color I see them all the same but the three that wave proudly  break rank and have names the red flows freely like blood from the heart it stands for something gruesome
I'm not inspired by earth's lovely things the birds, the trees, the autumn breeze.  
What makes this world awesome           Could it be the air we all breathe Or did you fight and defeated something that didn’t come with ease   Is it the lushness of the trees
The 12th year of high school,
A 5 year sentence of bad luck I didnt know my life could run such a muck from my cancer to the loss of my father i started to wonder... Should I even bother. I tried to stay positive for I knew better
I didn't choose the life I have I didn't set my place People have hurt me abused and cursed me And I've been stitching myself together So I may not be perfect
I the kId.  the Innocent kId. 
I the kId.  the Innocent kId. 
Everything I see, Everything in reach, From the biggest sea To the ripest peach, Is a living legacy. You see, Everything is Awsome, From the blooming lossom To the sneaky possum.
I remember once when I was conversating, and I was waiting, for the person's ignorance to wear out   Because I realized, with new found real eyes, that even wisemen have their doubts  
The pitter patter of your footsteps upstairs. Optimus Prime and Thomas the Train. The way you view the world With a pure, childish innocence. For years, I asked and pleaded
All I knew is that when she spoke to me, softly. It was so loud. “How come I am three times too big, and the room is three times too small?” I could see her fading into the wallpaper. I didn’t understand how a Ruby could question that. She was...
Sometimes I think about who I really am. Too often I am confused. Everybody tried to categorize me but these Poeple have no clue. Holes left in the judgements that people try to make
Everything about you is awesome You don't just awe some, you awe everyone From the way you say “good morning” To the way you cut your sandwiches You are a product of awesome  
Mom
You are an open tree in which I’m free
I was born … Only to be blamed for human’s existence on earth My essence, inside and out, blends into the definition of pure evil
The love that is shared is brighter than any sunrise It's the kind of love in romance novels Truly understood by the old and wise Creeping up and infecting you with its venom Dancing in your veins
The feeling of closing my eyes as sleep puts me under its' drug, amazing and relaxing.   Dreaming of all the goals I could accomplish that seems impossible to achieve, hopeful but not reassuring.
What good can come of death? Life Of a Problem? A solution Of an explosion? The universe Life has it's ups and downs, but you can't bounce if you never fall
Your dreams and desires is what make you But when its about you it breaks you You change someone everyday But you wouldn't know Because it's only about you You wanna be the person of your dreams
Plato believed that we’d never understand anything around us                 because everything around us is the palest of illusions                 veiling their true definitions.   In which case, I’m screwed
December 13, 2013   591 days have passed since A Queen released her self-titled album
Everything is awesome  When you live in a bubble with saran wrap and the packaging tissues to make a perfect bow Everything is awesome when you can stick to the dictating ideals that society has placed The media,
  The blooming and fading of flowers makes me tired but never resentful, The rain and snow over the four seasons makes me fascinated but never tired.
Don't think twice Sacrifice! The ones you love will fade away The ones who care are always there To keep them close to your heart One must offer as a start Sacrifice! Don't be shy
 at one moment I didn't have hope  I thought school was a joke  i played around  joked thinking my grades would still be passing 
To whom do I owe this grim despair? Myself for things that seem foretold If love gives life hath I no air A yielding heart and blood run cold   Some nights I lie awake and dream
You may not think it But everything is awesome. That cloud that looks like a dog, It's awesome. That gymnast doing all those flips, She's awesome. Getting a few hours to relax,
They're that friend that's always there. Their laugh, that smile, it resignates everywhere. For some strange reason their warmth always invades your own and it's amazing.  
We F A L L A single Raindrop. Alone and yet
Life is a rollercoaster filled with twists and turns
Blue skies, a sunrise, a new day has started. Take a walk, see everything you love, then you say you heart it. This shows your love; your love and appreciation.
Don't let the small things bring you down, They're only here for a short while, It's easy not to drown, All you have to do is smile.   It seems like everyone easily forgets,
Everything is AWESOME! First of all, there's flight. How can anything stay up in spite Of gravity and human thoughts? Initially, we all thought the world was flat. Now we know that idea is old hat.  
She does not wear a mask, not for her protection but instead she leaves her mark on everyone, with the subtle smile that never disappears. Not everyone can see the small bit of grace about her,

Great ideas I know I can conceive
I wake up every morning Only to live another day, To block away the world as I continue
All around you Wonder and delight Ensure that this world isn't a Shithole. Only, people choose not to notice! Memories plagued by dispair. Open your Eyes.
“Glass Half Full” I look around the room And what do I see? Nothing but beautiful people smiling at me
So many awesome things to do that I don’t want to sleep But even to sleep is to dream which is awesome So many awesome dreams to dream that I don’t want to wake
From the wrinkles in a dress to a hot summer day To the clouds up above and galaxies far away. Life offers many awesome things that we should love. Here’s a few more that I can think of:
Desperation kicks in, fear and anxiety an anchor to fall Breathe, Peace is evident, hope is powerful The sea is thick, the water too heavy an anchor to drown Breathe,
Isn't it awesome that Everyday is a fresh start Everyday a chance has been given make change if you are unhappy Everyday we grow older and wiser Everyday we learn something new
1.       LIGHT   In the light, Sight is inevitable.   You can feel your feet stable on the concrete. You can anticipate crossing those cracks in the sidewalk just a few yards ahead,
Everything is awesome? While others may claim such, I must disagree. I'll tell you what's not:
Waking up in the morning to find out that you're alive, That's awesome. Seeing those people laugh uncontrollably for no reason, That's awesome. Being able to breathe in fresh air or see the world grow,
Even now, as you sit at my slippered feet Your youthful eyes so full of hope, so Unhardened by the terrors of the world,
Look up at the sky Millions of stars as far as the eye can see Each one a small miracle That seems far beyond our reach   Seems like we wait For that miracle, something grand
I am aware of the stress,
This headache I got, this stress I'm in.... The finish line is so far away in order for me to win, but I just wanna finish.
The dawn of light upon our faces,                                                                                                         The sound of birds singing to the sun,                                                                      
I start up my mornings with a nice early shower. That’s how I start my day. You may start that way too. Perhaps you prefer evenings for taking showers, But does that make me more awesome than you?  
Oh, what ground we stand on. Oh, this terrace of collision and space.  Where is it that we call anew? Where do we turn? Facing old is unnatural and unseemly. None is precedent for novel.
her feet knocks the ground over and over again on a quick thud and her heartbeat is in her ears she feels it catching up on her with a shrieking cry and 
I look up to the skyWondering what it would be likeTo be with you.
I am walking  through my own thoughts My mind is foggy with distractions I have only one goal in mind that's to catch the light at the end of the tunnel I have went through so many obstacles to get to where i am now
Everything around me, The sounds that astound me, The cerebral sensations stay, Through the glowing light of each day.   This taste of life as it passes by, It amazes me, drives me,
How awesome it is; life The sun rises  birds sing their melodeous tune- earth's alarm clock some might say Tea kettles alarm Coffee brews Yawns plague  Dreamland fades
awesome awesome, everything is awesome
Life is like the sky. Somedays it's bright, when life has reached it's high. Other times it's night, when life has taken a turn for the worse. Fear not, for the tides will return.
even with all this time you've been on my mind mama some nights I fall asleep drenched in sweat from this vicious nightmare a daughters weep waking up with tears as I lay
My eyes have seen many wonders of this world The streches of the Amazon River thats water leaks from my soul The ashen color of the Great Wall which inspires my feet to continue on their journey in this life
If you leave,
I shed many tears, And express many screams.
Oh dismal day, our loving mother has passed away. Disease struck her and became too strong, we soon knew death would come along.   She did not deserve a painful end,
Hope Changes you. You can see it In faces and demeanors. It makes you taller, brighter, healthier It is a light  When you are traveling through pitch black   Hope is all around us.
A life skyrocketed at a young age 
Get up. Open my eyes. Today begins. The reality that it must begin is what scares me. It waits like a resolute samurai at the threshold – Here is your sword, we must begin the battle before we are overcome.
nowhere can one escape to silence:   not the city, with the constant running
Everything; that's awesome. You need only to believe it. But everything ain't what I've got. So let me tell you why I'm screaming. In the city people act as though their lives are worth a dime
Pretty Awesome What it is it that makes me “Pretty Awesome”? Pretty, adjective, pleasing or attractive to the eye, as by delicacy or full of grace
Sometimes life is hard. No one tells you the work it takes. Sometimes, there are rough things Things that tear you down inside.  I've heard it takes breaking down to get back up,
It's almost time The time where I really work to pave that pathway That path that'll become the prime I try to reach my utmost potential But only to witness that I can't hold that title
As I took my first glance at the world, You cried   As I took my first step,
Love was once A ring sunk Through my tongue;   It was a promise. One of dedication In its most beautiful form Of danger and pain...   That ring, It once bled me -
Someone who listens when you have something to say. Someone who cries with you every step of the way. She knows what you like without even asking. She knows how to dance when it's time for basking.
Each step taken is another place moved. Each word spoken is another breath breathed. Each speech given is another passion found. Each song played is another love created.  
Yes everything may be awesome  but what strikes me most  is the light filtering throught the trees and the pen gliding across  starch white  paper see everything is there to be seen 
Our minds Live with us From our first gasp For air Until our final Dying breath.   Our minds Know us better Than any other person
I see self in the mirror  I see strength in my bones i see wealth in my wizdom i see no harm in my home  I see God in my life  I see love in my family  i see direction in my mistakes 
  The rain’s falling down Across the waves Which bring me closer to you.   The sun’s shining down
She is soft, like the slow kiss of a crisp autumn night, yet strong, like the determined root of a beautiful cherry tree
Dark Skinned, Light Skinned, No color should be ashamed No matter what our complexion is, it all feels the same.
Oh, the yeses and no’s, chocolates, vanillas, Blues and yellows, fuchsias, manilas – I’m afraid I can be quite undecided. Down-to-earth, yes, but so indecisive. For me, choosing favorites is never easy . . .
Laughs and smiles They could go on for miles
Awesome, a word that is used quite a bit Whether going to the gym and trying to get fit Or eating everything you want. Stay happy Some days are hard and some seem crappy  
Into the world I peer Of passion and worldly desires Running after the things we want For dreams and passions burn as bright as forest fires. I see the world’s magnitude and spectrum
Just a girl. Bittersweet, just the right combination. They sold her lies... But she constantly believed them. What can I say? She didn't know any better. Just a girl. 16, about to be a mother.
I want you to close your eyes, And picture clear skies. Imagine pretty places, Smiles on familiar faces. Soft kisses in the rain, Bandages for the pain. See boys and girls alike,
Voice low Words flow Emotions grow. Fleeting, flying, flashing A song is everlasting. Every note a tiny fire Dancing on a wire. Soul engraved in stone This soldier goes unknown.
You said I was your flower, but I’m a garden. Marigolds watered with my tears are wilting in the shade. Pale peonies suffocate the withered daisies. Muted magenta basil blossoms swallow the bloodied roses.
  Dear Past   You labored children You will never see And still had the Courage to strive to be free   You took a stand And stood so tall For those you would
A-W-E-S-O-M-E it can be used for everything Look at the sky How about the birds that fly Or maybe the fish in the sea Or simply one bee Dogs and cats may fight But things will be alright right
What do I like about you best? Hmm...I think I like your eyes the best? The way they peer at me with interest As they stay stuck on me   Or maybe it's your ears They tell me more than your lips do
you both promised i thought your words were gold now i know why they call it a knife in the back my heart feels like you've wrenched it out the two that were once the closest  have never felt so far
Her
With a single touch of her hand, I am overwhelmed with a sensation that floods my entire body. What a strange sensation this is…  
Who am I?
Life is a wish. A dream that finally comes true. It inspires many,
Liquid laughter flows through the pale, gray-blue eyes, Melting the air...
It's 3 PM and my jammies are still on, I've scored a free Saturday I haven’t had one of these in so long! 
Turning off the busiest street lies the quietest park
She's sweet she's candy. She only knows how to giggle.
Why do I cry? Why do I mourn? Why can't I see all that is good around me? Everything is in gray Nothing matters I refuse to let anything change the mood I have decided I deserve
For the colors that are there but we walk through them For the sounds of nature we hear but don't listen to For the people that surround us but we ignore
The world brings us down, it pushes us around.     They say we’re not smart enough, they say we can’t win, They say we are spiraling down, spiraling and then…  
She is 1959 miles away 27 hours driving with no traffic Or 4 hours and 10 minutes on a nonstop flight That costs $409   To earn $409  At $10 an hour Is 40 hours and 54 minutes of work
She ran with shoes in hand. Her silk stockings padded against the gold flecked floor. This place was too beautiful for her. Too full of life for a dead girl. 
What is Awesome? Life is Awesome.  
Butterflies. Could they exist without it? What about flowers? What about days and nights? What about sunsets? Sunrises? Rainbows? Stories? Songs? You? What about you? Could you exist without it?
You Want Awesome I'll give you two words My Daddy If you were ever wondering how exactly he was so awesome I am here to tell you Exactly who he is You may have seen him at Suntrust
In life sometimes we may feel powerless
    As I sit and watch The wonders that I thought Would take place before I leave However as I see You smiling there at me The memories of adventures flood back to me
Yellow dough rolled around spiced fish, Orange-tinted, soft, buttery kisses in every bite, Bringing me back to times When I was loved by so much. The pre-school teacher's smile as bright
Golden light spills out of the sky  and into our laps Our laughter rings 
I had the best cup of coffee today
It's the last day, the final score I fought my battles hard and I won my war But I'm not done (3x) And although I'm not done I don't give up hope Searching in the dark For just one rope (3x)
Oh yes, I am so humble The entire world can see that my awesomeness stems from my profound humility. Every day I see the signs of a person just and kind. Oh yes, I am so humble.
I wish that one day, Maybe,
Everybody's different, And that's fascinating Everyone's story Can be captivating.   The tales of their victories, Their triumphs, their deeds, The tales of their failures and
Nature Nature is one of the most powerful forces on the planet: By its hand, we live And we die.
When I see your face I know I can make it through today. When I hear your voice I know yesterday’s pain doesn’t matter. When I feel your touch I know that the world is full of possibilities.
Our minds ae going insane. Viewing screens and pushing buttons so much robots are in our veins. So hard to remain focused. Attention is all we want. Guns in hands and drugs make friends. Everything is becoming blunt.
You can't catch me, I'm black AND proud They say I'm a target, just because I'm brown But i dont ever front, 'cause they'll catch their round I pick myself up when they knock me down
Maybe, we'll go down in a blaze of glory, or in the silence of time. Maybe, there won't be another one, just a mountainous climb. Maybe, I'm tired, or just disillusioned. Maybe,
To say I was in awe at the sightOf my young sister slipping through the fetid hands of a devilWould be putting it lightlyA fetus twisted and kicked inside me
Sometimes she imagined a boy on the road He’d stand below the window Just out of sight, in the shadows While she dressed or undressed Crying or dancing Or navigating the bed It was exciting
Among the air we breathe, and the flowers which wreathe, come the elements of nature.   Mockingbirds that sing, birds using their wings, are the sounds of nature.   The wind blowing,
Beep. Beep. Beep. Every. Single. Day. Wake up. Get Ready. Go to school. Go to work. Sleep. Repeat. People to greet, deadlines to meet, tests to take, party too late, Ugh! There is NO time!
Look out, what do you see?             A Child? A Bird? A Cat? A Tree? I see a world, one of possibilities.             You see the dirt. The grass. The seeds. I see life sprouting through me.
The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than churches.Murders, now-a-day, are framed as “rescue and searches.”Corruption has led to civilian insurgents.But not everything is bad.
My life is barren And don't you ever think That joy is boundless For I know for a fact Sorrow waits around the corner And I don't care that Life has its days I've known from the beginning
From a young age I am taught the way this world works. My shorts can't be too short and my bra strap can never show. Yet your pants can sag to the point where I can see your boxers?
Listen to the music
    Life as I know it is really nothing but awesome  We live each day how we desire     And we each, as humans, learn to grow and blossom As we watch others and silently admire
We all start out as little ones, little girls and little sons, As we grow we see the world, Into normality others swirled. Stories lived yet go untold, It leaves a feeling somewhat cold.
Everything is awesome, As we all know. The sun, the moon the stars, The flowers and the snow. But I, myself am awesome. To myself. To me. The way my lungs fill with air; Life.
You are awesome 
The word awesome is itself awesome I feel awesome when I hear the word “Awesome!” It is awesome when I reach my sibling to the sky And hear her happiest laughter every day, It is awesome to make a mistake
Remember that time I was at home, sick, miserable and hopeless as ever?Hearing your voice made me feel better again. Remember that time I failed a math test and couldnt stop crying? 
You sometimes tuck yourself into bed to hide from society. You sometimes ask yourself why everything seems so hard. You sometimes write, complain, and cry into your diary. 
Her words were never heard they were never spoken. She created her own language through her eyes, her vibrant sapphire eyes. We grew up together, her and I... and yet she never really grew up,
Been making so many mistakes, Regrets keep me up late. Swimming in waterfalls, Drowning in "what if’s". All of this pressure got me feeling like Mayweather with his hope of winning every fight that’s why I’m giving it my all in every round.
A million paths, all lead to one. You either lived life to the fullest or wait till it’s done. I’m ecstatic, I am scared. Doing what I love to do with the thrill of the unknowing.
Drifting across the floor as if the world has no friction to hold you back
Random acts of kindness to the strangers we don’t know. Anonymously letting our secret personality show. We are humans that have universes living within.
"What is awesome?" a teenage boy asked me today "Far too many things seem to get in the way..." "What is awesome about being an adult? There's far too much that seems to be at fault"
I stand here; stranded in the fierce light of creation.    It will be shy, like the expression upon my face;    It gets attention, like the empire state building I see out
A simple stroke of the brush Rotation from the pottery wheel
I think it's awesome but sometimes I tend to complain about it. But, my family, It's an aspect of life. I couldn't live without it. Yes, it has it ups and downs.
As I lay here my mind drifts off the beauty of the sky seems a deeper blue than usual the trees hold many surprises as their golden leaves drift across a field of green grass
The sun is bright with few clouds in sight as it is early and far from being night.  As I cast into the wind and a deep breath as I begin the wait for another bite.
What makes me awesome? Sometimes it's hard to see.
Our eyes meet for the very first time.
A cumbersome, catatonic existence can burn at my handsand I'll keep the torch with me, an old friend caught between young palms,ash and emotion make me stand:
To my brothers and sisters with that beautiful melanin flowing through their veins:             I know you’re tired. I feel it. I turn on the news and I am exasperated.

“You are awesome.” I’ve said it—again and again and again—but do you really know? I watch you breathe; I watch you struggle to breath. There are bricks on your chest—but you are awesome.
Finding myself looking through these pictures I drew one day   But soon I realized that they  were all black and white in some way.   Black for dark cold memories I often wonder why 
In the night I dream of dormant things Your love for me and feathers not yet wings But without flight I fall Oh please! I try to scream but I cannot Trembling, I find the knot

What is it about yourself, a friend, or life in general that you find awesome? My life is usually such a bore. School doesn't interest me, but my friends make it a mandatory chore.

My feet are hugged by leather soles The girls around me jump and turn We’re here to dance, we’re here to learn

"You're so different" Different meaning, "not the same as another, unlike in nature, form, or quality". Different, a term I often left behind because of it's connotation, but now I embrace it an open heart.
Ectasy pleasure, spontaneous delight. Atmosphere is not a perfume that scent - clear and sweet, is not my soul. In this city of orgasm. your own affairs, unravel and uncurl

I forget that the fall leads to a rise. Because as you descend there must always be room to ascend And the same can be said for climbing, only to tumble down mercilessly
empty  I am hollow  A vase whose flowers are dead and withered  I was high Now I am going down, down, down, down, Down under drowning, drown, drown, drowned drowned

The wonder of the sunrise
Memories lost,  the uncertain future,
Everything I do is for you My decision to attend a University is for you Staying up late reading and studying for hours on end is for you
I see the ocean, the fog, the tiny shopfronts I see the Uni, the bay, the glacier Everything will be awesome. Juneau is my future Marine Bio is my life. I smell the sea And I see the eagles.
I’m Awesome   Where there’s dark there must be light My heart has been broken And it has been played with
Wow, I really don’t think that I deserve this gift that You’re giving me, I’m trying to gather my thoughts as to how I even fit into this category, you see…
Darkness. That is all I used to see in this world we live in. Darkness, The total absence of life, Of joy, Of love Of awesomeness.   Then I met someone,
My heart is shattered, My sould is lost and cold,My crown is gone,
Awesome is not a word you use often if talking about yourself.
Maybe for the longest time, People didn't understand the power of love. The ability to do so is at the very root Of our feeble existence, Gives us purpose and the belief that
Clouds are giant marshmallows spread across the sky
 
As the world is falling into dystopia We forget the little moments of utopia The slightest smiles from strangers That makes you momentarily forget about the potential dangers The literary works of the past
   
Beautiful on the inside Ingenious all throughout Music is, what brings my life Joy
the never-ending obnoxious barking from my dog that happens everytime I come home
Don't sweat the small stuff That's what they say But how can we not When the struggles we face With relationships, school, learning to love ourselves, and finding happiness
I. There is no such thing as too much sleep.So when your eyes are heavy,Let them go.
Bright red face, tightly clutching my fists eager to strike a blow like a ghetto kid. Pockets very slim, family auguring  till the end, report card arrived, disappointed momma again.  
eyes filled with tears , she checked again and again dread burned in her stomach she sat on the cold tile floor of the bathroom clutching the test   she found the courage to tell him
I met you in my dream last night, I felt your skin, I swear I looked into your eyes with fingers tangled through your hair But with eyes closed the thoughts are never bright enough to keep
I am simply plainly purely honestly easily frankly sincerely transparently   alone   in this complex elaborate tainted lying hard
If I had to talk about myself, I would not know where to start, Because my life is like a winding road; Short, but full of unexpected twists.   I was born as if I were a princess;
People come and people go Sadness dwells and happiness furloughs Things suddenly cease to last; Life changes around us fast              People come and people go   Days spent safe in lovers’ arms
They all ask, "What is so awesome about her?" As she plays her guitar alone in her room, And writing lyrics straight from the heart. She plays in her band and rocks out to the tunes.   
The mind is infinite. Thoughts, never ending. One thought could trigger millions Carrying us on trains through mountains and valleys of fragmented ideas
This past year has been a blur I am now done with college - year one And I can say this one thing is sure: It was not at all very fun. My room-mate was evil, a devil was she The cafeteria's food was inedible
We learn from our past for a soothing future; done leisurely for a peaceful end to a life the Lord so graciously  bestowed upon us his children, many years ago when the world was young;
Heart of Gold, Chains of Diamonds. Bound my soul, did not confide it. A love I lost, her love I gained. Her chains kept me whole, kept me sane. But I made a mess, I damaged the locks. Her chains was loosed, I fell apart.
I look in the mirror, What is so special? They see nothing but What I see is the fact that I am beautiful.   The people that surround me, They are my true colors.
Lost, angry, broken.Hope lost.Soul aching.Heart bursting.
Words   Words are awesome. They are my freedom, kind of like a superpower.  
You're More Than Awesome
*clears throat* I'm........awesome. And so is everything else. *lights dim and people applaud*
Within the turn of a page, I’m transported to 1920’s New Orleans.   Soft pastel ribbons that adorn the corn silk curls of the girls passing by catch my eye as I inhale the thick scent of burning cigars.  
As the world passes by, With its ever changing story. I sit here, trying to read the story I have been given. With life as the main character, Giving meaning and plot to the story,
          I am warm and I am cold. I am a force to be trifled with but a protector of my children. I am a home to many and full of life. I can be nuturing as well as a disaster. I grow and survive for I am strong.
Ever since I was a child,I’ve hated thunderstorms.The flash of light,the precursor to the beast’s cryalways made me anxious,a waiting game until the rumblethat would shake the land;
How is it the mind works? Truly, how is thought expressed? Because my mind makes synapses; They filter deep within and fester.   That is, until they leave or cannot exist.
    The sun peaks perfectly through a gap in the mountain side, illuminating the rising and falling tide that leaves a puff of mist on the shore,
The Value of My Education I value my education, but I cannot put a value on it. My Education Is.
I work hard for what I want, Because I am awesome. Full time nursing student, Full time mom, Full time employee Full time. I am awesome Because I can and will.
I'm AWESOME simply because I persevere through life's trials and tribulations Whether it's health issues or financial difficulties, I rely on my faith in God and the strength that he has given me to continue on
My flaws are as perfect as can be although I mistakes they always humble me I've never had lots of money or fame  but if that's all that matters life is a shame my clothes may not be fancy and new
Hatred, love, cruelty, kindness You get the gist Seeing hugs and kisses, then guns and death This is life as we know it Do you ever see happiness, smiles, laughter, and fun And think, Life is good
Nothing means more to me than my life, Nothing means more to me than my family, Nothing means more to me than my sister, Nothing means more to me than my parents, Nothing means more to me than my father,
Wedlock is defined as being in a state of marrige.Hapiness, as defined by me, is feeling fullfilled at the end of the day.Assosiation of the two are apparent in my world.
On this very night, I found out that the job I wanted was given to someone else The day before, I suffered extreme back pain from my scoliosis Two weeks ago, the girl I wanted to date told me that we shouldn’t hang out anymore A month ago, my mot
They whistled from the backyard until us little ones Came trouncing through the woods Covered in sap and ticks, scrapes and red cheeks. We rolled down the big hill at top speeds Just to feel our ears pop,
 The summer before my junior year of high school  I did not one,  but two unexpected things that just made me  feel alive.  First I made myself a pair shorts.  
When things go wrong, it seems like life is going downhill
We never dared to drop a foot On rats or spiders, dared to shoot Our parents taught us good and well These kinds of things were apt to fell. Yet we kept our toes so nicely clean
     Our house, our home, our life, our right.      The spinning world in the spotlight,      Whose deep blue depths, bright sky, and lands      Might crumble to night by hot hands.
When things seem to have darken along road Or perhaps the road vanished right before your eyes You stop and breathe. You try to not let the darkness get to you, to devour you whole.
Ha...everything is awesome when it's going my way Not your way or her way but my way all the way Yah it's all smiles and giggles when my style is filling The room    This room  
Growing up I just wanted to be this But life seemed to want that All I needed was the bliss But expectations wanted me flat   In elementary school it was all about popularity
A title is a weak place Its smile or frown could be pretend Like hair hidden in any hat It could hold many split ends   A title is a mask The pages hold its self esteem
This is life.  Colorful sunsets that brighten a terrible day.  Drinking a hot coffee cuddled up in your favorite old sweatshirt. Laughing until your whole body aches with the spirit of it. 
When the world gets you down,  That's the time to look up. It's easy to get caught in the spiral, To spin in detrimental circles. But in order to avoid acceleration,
It goes on without a care Sustains life for all to share Allows us to enjoy its beauty, to canoe down its river, and live life without a care How would we breathe, drink, if nature was not there
Life is worth living because of these.     Strum of coastal breeze, sugary and smooth,       lock of hair that flits away from my face.                Rustle of leaves, slight and drifting,
Isn’t it awesome, that rivers are forever? They are forever, and yet you will never stand in the same river twice, The river is a new being and packs a punch like a spice. Isn’t it awesome, how as humans we have grown?
Awesome is as Awesome does. I have to keep a smile on cuz ‘round every turn, ‘round every bend I know the possibilities Will never end!
Starting  school, having fun making friends!carry on little soldier,Mom escorts home and daddies on the phone.carry on little soldier,Middle school starts off with a blast!
To the worrisome little girl I was: Things will fall into place.It’ll take time.Tears will be cried.But things will fit together again,Even if they’re all broken now.
What is more awesome then being alive? To be part of something great where humans strive Not only humans but animals and plants too What an interesting world covered in green and blue
You're more than  just a flower in the dirt You have so much worth You're more than just some city girl Someday you're gonna change  the world You're more than just some simple girl
(a poem about the transition from high school to college)   I’m looking at a hamburger right now. There it is, right in front of my face Just a round little brown thing It looks so happy.  
For my whole entire life, May I just say, Everything about it, Is awsome in every way. From birth to childhood, Tweens to teens, Every moment of my life, Has brightened each passing day.
These things have become artifacts since the last time you've touch them.I model my daydreams around the crinkle of linen sheets, hoping that one day I'll escape and find a place to meet you.
I am an average student  with average grades  But what do they know  A's seem to determine how smart I am My test grades don't reflect my capacity Intelligence is arbitrary
You can breathe in some air free of charge. You can drink some fancy water for a slight charge. You can steal someone’s electricity for your phone to charge. Man, life is awesome.
You always try to keep a smile on.
  Every time I feel my heart breaking, you’re always there by my side.  
I'm Daniel at warFacing the tallest of the GiantsMy rocks won't reachMy voice muffled in the echoes of silenceI would climb and strikebutheights are my fearSo I faceMy darknessMy enemy
The soft sand warms her like a blanket  A cool breeze flows through her hair The waves splash and smooth her spirit  She views the horizon with love and care   
I fell down on my knees  And begged him please Don't take this life away from me And to my surprise I saw joy in his eyes As he spared me one last time
Everything is awesome But that’s not always the case We have things that suck, Like diseases and hate   But if it wasn’t for the bad, Would we really appreciate the awesome?
your alarm blares you turn it off irritated that it's time to ready yourself for work you get in the shower you turn it off irritated that you couldn't get the right
The whistling wind the barking dog the chittering squirrel the croaking frog   I hear these things every summer I hear things that make me smile I see things making me glad
From the clouds in the sky to the grass on the ground everything is awesome From the roof over my head to the bed I sleep in the clothes on my back to the shoes I walk in awesome
We’re living in a world
The way that mother looks At her child The way that husband looks At his wife The way a 3-year old boy says hi
  From the height of the cosmos to everything under Existence exudes wisdom and wonder Crammed to the crease with curiosity Exhilarated by vivifying velocity Stuffed, soaked, seething with sensation
From the point where life all begun to the awesome individuals that helped make everything awesome. When there is bad, the good will come, everything negative has a positive.  Life is awesome. You wake up everyday,
My skin.
Mother, mommy, how wonderful you are.You’re definitely the one I adore.
Is there something else to this life that I am living?All I desire is to feel self-fulfilled. And yet I would,if I were free to follow my desire in the harsh light of day.  But, I am not.
Inspired by the Novel "Through the Deep Waters," by Kim Vogel Sawyer, my poem tells the story of a young woman who sold her body to save herself and her mother (set in the mid-late 1800's).  
Life is a bowl of cherries We might have a few struggles  a few worries, but life is a beautiful thing You will realize it, if you smile more and stop being so mean We have so much to smile about
These thoughts, my thoughts,
Awesome Awesome is life. Overcomig hard obstacles is life. Beoming a better person is awesome. Heping whoever needs help is awesome. Not caring what race they are is awesome.
Family time is special in every kind of way It's a time we all need that brightens up our day. Sometimes we take family for granted, when they're the ones we love. They'll always be forgiving just like the Lord above.
Its beautiful wings are different pigments of light Leading me out of such darkness and fright Shining a path that’ll lead me to everlasting life Such tender sight and compassionate ways
You. You are you. You are no one else but you. And no one else is or can be you.   You are awesome though you might not think so at times. Just think! You are a living being
  Together we move, Leaving traces of grace. Steadily we follow the path of the unknown, Untouched.  
Together we move, Leaving traces of grace. Steadily we follow the path of the unknown, Untouched.  
My rose colored glasses shows me a world so clear, with flowers of every color, beautiful people, and gorgeous countries across the world. Let me stay rose colored.
In Junior Year I walked into Chemistry My teacher shook hands and smiled at me She would always share stories and making learning fun She never droned on or bored anyone Carbon, Fluorine, Potassium--K
Tomorrow smile at someone That you've never seen before. Take time to think of others that
You're in a spin, And you don't know why.  Why is the world turning? Out of control, You're losing your mind. Why are my insides churning? You're down in the dumps,
While there are bad days in life, there is always a reason to smile. Life is what YOU make it, so make it spectacular. My mom is my best friend. She always puts a smile on my face.
When my throat is raw and my eyes are red from words both unspoken and said I hear, The pitter patter of the rain replicating my pain
"Gangrenous Neuroticisms plague my behavior, Psychic festerings with the most unpleasant of cures, And you are my treatment."  
Who said the wind does not sing who said the roses do not bloom  who said I cannot love myself     At age six  she tried to dull my wind  she tried to clip my roses 
Living is awesome! I get to see my plants blossom. I can skate in the summer sun. My happiness can never be undone. Because everything is awesome! Eating food and playing games.
You make forget everything that's bad, You make me remember that some things can be awesome, But I don't know how you do it,  Or what it is that is you,
*/ /*-->*/ Don't cry my dear, I am sure that a rock on the surface of neptune has never felt such joy as you
Drain rain go away The sky is quite dark above me The schoolbell rings and everyone rushes to their classes Yet I can't move an inch My ankles have sank into the mud   Drain rain is here to stay
  I swivel skewers of charred lamb's leg and squeeze a sliced lemon on top. The campers with flushed lips raise
I am become life, creator of words, amirite?   The other way is so boring.   Anyone can destroy, to create is joy, and what is a world but a collection of words?  
We live we breath, how awesome it that we can see? You are here I am there,  how awesome is it that there are people everywhere? We are born, into a world of love and air,
It's been said that the eyes are the window of the soul. Each of us having a pair which have taken us through all walks of life. One can read a lot about a person through their eyes. They can express emotion or attention,
The heat I feel the radiation searing my shoulders It burns but still I stand: You bring me life  Why does life hurt so much: Then in distance it finally starts to go down  I see his shadow 
Smile. The world is changing, and one day it will be ready for you to be a part of it.   Laugh. The pain of yesterday flutters to the ground like ashes around a campfire,
Step into the subconscious, out of reality. My! How fine the world is in my mentality! Down the rabbit hole I go, ignoring all responsibilities and reminders though. Lo and behold, is that my high school crush?
I take the small step from the inner boundaries of my home to the unorchestrated planet outside where both biotic and abiotic creatures reside Nature reaches the farthest realms in length and width
You are above your flaws Ordeals will not faze you Until failures create possibilities  Relentlessly strive for greatness  Eventual success will emerge  Anguish will not remain
When the sky is a muddy grayCasting whispery shadows to dampen up the day   in a cold, pessimistic sighIt's easy to see a bright, brilliant world
The sun rose, like it always does.    I lifted my head, from the place that it was.    The gift I receive every morning I wake,    is the blessing of work, along with money I make.   
I was stuck under your thumb and you held me down until your print was stamped onto me.   When you allowed me to escape, your thumb hovered over my sun and your shadow created storms.
It's easy to look on the downsides than upsides, I like to think about the future and my point to where i am now and how i got here, I have so much more than i really need but i forget to easily,
So hear this: however Yon and parched the river
Life is something that you should make awesome No matter what harsh things may come your way Like a sleepy sloth, it can be tiresome But all the negative thoughts you have, you should slay!  
Amongst the dulled murmur, a clear song rises.   Even as the chains bind our arm, our hearts soar free, only hindered by the limits of our imagination.   
I like my Haikus But sometimes they make no sense. Refrigerator.
what is a un remembered memory? i refuse to remeber because its negative to my head i shed these sins i refuse to do what they did.
Sometimes, I think about how worthless it all is, How one day, The universe will be nothing, Only dust, How the sun will no longer shine, How the stars will no longer exist to dance among,
Red, White, Black & Blue, They steal from us, from me and you. They tax our income and systematically oppress,  They tell us what to dream for,  They tell us how to dress.

Happiness is awesome The simple beauty of waking up and feeling your heartbeat is awesome “I love yous” are awesome Everything is awesome   The future is awesome
The rolling rumble, resonating through the clouds
Yup, everything is awesome. You, reader and breather Placed here somehow Don't question it Accept and embrace the fact you can just be Simple beauty of life  Unique and irreplaceable  Amazing

I am tall for a girl. I have learned to slow my steps So I walk behind my friends- Never in front. I never wear heels

My life is simple Nothing too fancy or rich And yet still perfect The best things in life are free  I was very blessed Blessed with a good family And wonderful friends

To be awesome is to be happy. Life is meant to be lived Even if it is kinda sappy That's the way it was meant to be
Every cloud has it's silver lining the light that shines in the darkest of places alone it pierces through the fear and anguish touching the very fiber of the heart its gentle hand  warm and soft
Cool Kids We all wish we could be like the cool kids Fit in the crowd and popular We don’t see it   We are all the cool kids We are all one big crowd and popular
Everything is awesome.

Through all the hardships "Take courage and still be strong" Things will get better
When life is trapping you in its grip, Do not back down. Hold on to those sweet memories; They always cloud my mind. I remember the summer, Before everything I knew became a distant memory.
