My life has been hard, this year was no different. Half way through I realized I'd missed it. From being comfortable and never alone, We were left without a home. In our car is where we stay
I can hear a rose cry It's Time to go I was able to get through I'm sure I'm happy now I was in a fog The Sun hid behind a tree The east consumes the Sky Yet darkness disappears
Everyday I woke, I worked, all day to day, no change.The broken record called "My Life", was simply played away.Routine will grind your smallest bones of vigor into naught,and as day and day pass away you'll find your heart has stopped.For me, for
Years go by as they always do Some go fast, others slow, But never a year taken so long As this year's past. Changes occur as they always do. Some welcome, some not. Haircuts and new friends,
Creeeaaaaakkkkkk kkkkkkaaaaaeeerC Deep breath Step out onto the sidewalk And breath the fresh summer air Feel the wind tangle in your hair
Why am I here I am behind a computer screen when I can be out exploring I want to travel the world Climb Mount Everest Swim between the Canyons in the sweet light blue water
January Another year, another promise to myself to be happy February The weather outside isn’t the only thing that’s cold The sadness transformed into hatred March I refuse to give up this time,
For me it was gold But for them its dirt The way they treat The way they speak But whatever it is I doesnt really fit They came along That wasnt too long Both singing a song
Sitting at lunch among my group of friends All of them, laughing until their hearts content Their smiles so bright it seems they never witnessed hardship
My soul is like a peace of paper; white and light and soft and new. My friends are like the pages; close enough to feel the pain, but like a page they too can turn away, who new.
Recently, applying for scholarships have become a blur. The number one question I get is What are you personal and educational goals? To me, stating my personal and educations goals seperately
January and new beginnings Followed by intense wrestling in February Little old ladies in their gardens at the end of March Listening to a good record during an April shower
Phone at one-hundred percent, Music app opened, Headphones plugged in, Zoned out. Brushes gathered, Paints wet, Cup filled with water, Ready. Image has been sketched.
A perfect and loyal friend From you jumping all over me, to a bark meaning hello, There is no other friend I would rather go To lick away my tears and tell all my fears. A walk in the park, A ride in te car,
Happy When life is down your must turn it around. Happy A pat on the back can get a life on track. Happy A simple nap will tighten the cap. Happy Life will get better Happy
Happy When life is down your must turn it around. Happy A pat on the back can get a life on track. Happy A simple nap will tighten the cap. Happy Life will get better Happy
The morning sun is like a coffee Liquid light streaming from the sky A cup of bliss for upturned faces Receiving the golden greeting from up high. The morning sun is like a letter
I see them. They start to emerge from the darkness. Slowly, enticing, flawless. The excitement builds inside me. And then... In unison they begin to move, their bodies in sync.
When I was younger, I used to think guys Needed to make me smile I thought boys completed empty parts Parts that first became bruised
I want to smile. I want to be happy all the time. I want to have fun with my friends. That does not always happen. Life gets in the way.
Somber winds beat against the door fallen words halted by the sound forgotten ways yearn for the past feelings once erupt are now bound without words how can I express,
The wind whispers as it ruffles through the trees. Birds sing along to nature's tune. The glowing sun shines through golden leaves as it rises to the day. A king to its kingdom.
Words drift into Oblivion The night stretches into Morning Alarm rings into Irritation Dawn breaks into
The leaves orange and yellow, carry me up through the woodland, to the mountains big and tall. Take me to the canyons, down to the plains, up to a valley, away from everything.
A breathless beauty forms in front of my eyes the cotton candy sky illuminating onto my skin the clash between red, orange, pink and purple mix together as one as if they were in love and never letting go
I very much enjoy the first bite of cake. As I scrape the fork on my plate and smile I think to myself I might have to run an extra mile. But I shrug it off because this pastry is good for my own sake.
There are more than a few things Which I am pleased about, that wash away my stormy days, and cleanse me of my doubt. Sometimes they are big things and sometimes they are small
Its hard to write a short poemAbout things that make me happyI wrote a two page poem and thought"Its too long and too sappy."I had to be selective Like picking out a mateSo here are about ten things
A white blanket covers the soft ground, Fire crackles its vibrant heat into the frigid air Stocking hang above, waiting to be filled Sweet smells wafts from the kitchen
Tears and heartbreakLaughter and smilesRight and leftAlways together Never separateCuddles and kissesCookies and milkSleeping and dreamingLife keeps them together Because they are pairs
Smile for a picture Smile for a friend Smile for a special someone or Smile because you can Smile because your beautiful Smile because it makes bad days better or
Happy days and windy Mays That's what makes me smile Running for miles Down that country road Sometimes I think of you, All those times we spent back here Laying on that blanket staring at the stars
Most feelings are materialistic, like receiving a gift or being complimented, or getting a splendid grade on a test, or wearing a nice outfit that day. I desire deeper feelings.
Wind is wisping through my hair, as the horizon revels in its orange and pink. The world passes in the window's glare, and the radio sings a farmiliar song. Asphalt roads are a thoughtful maze,
Wind is wisping through my hair, as the horizon revels in its orange and pink. The world passes in the window's glare, and the radio sings a farmiliar song. Asphalt roads are a thoughtful maze,
Out the window a thousand bright lights
Why, hello Day! I've been expecting you. I endured a long process waiting for you. I wrote a song last night and I'd like to show someone, I thought you'd take forever and spoil the fun.
Happiness is a choice You have to make it In order to be happy You have to choose happy In order to choose happy You have to think happy So many people in the world aren't choosing it
Many times in school I have felt alone, However, spoken word catches me in it's net. It heals my the the wounds from words that may cause a broken bone.
Hey! We are the crew! We can teach a thing or two! Taught it in this line!
Tick tock to a halt; it’s one, then two, then stop Her breathing slows, her small throat swells Tears are rolling down her cheeks It may seem morbid, it may seem wrong But I’m not ashamed of how I feel
Pessimists see the horrors of Earth. The darkness that comes from the moon's birth. They need to see the beauty of life, through all the troubles, struggles and strife.
I feel myself overwhelmed in euphoria.
You're beauty is like starlight, but more like the spaces in betweenBecause you're so much more than just a pretty faceYou're so much more than the precious pearls you hide behind
What makes me smile? What makes me feel good? When I can run the mile, And do what I know I should. It’s cuddling with my cat. It’s being all wrapped up. It’s when you’re so cozy that,
You know what's my favorite thing in the whole world? When I talk to someone Especially kids my age Or grown ups Or anyone really
Let us talk about what makes me feel good. But this time, I won't share it on my therapist's green couch or my psychiatrist's wooden chair or to myself when I feel myself slowly start to slip.
It's the little things in life Those most often overlooked Like flowers, grass, and sunshine A blanket and a book Spending time with loved ones Like your family and your friends
I Am Baseball I am the warm and humid summer days I am the cold and rainy fall days I am the short perfect grass
Being awoken And opening my eyes To the sunshine Every morning When I could only see darkness Showed me that There was more to me Than my mental illness It gave me a reason
As a kid I loved swimming It was something That made me happy As I grew My love For immersion Became fear As I realized The mental horror Of drowning
Have I Ever told you What makes me Smile? It's not sunny days Or pretty poetry Or even my favorite stories. A good friend To just hang with and Watch TV shows
Sometimes I'm mad, sometimes I'm sad. Bring me food and I'll be glad. The days seem cloudy, the days seem sunny, but my friends think the weather is funny. Somedays I'll
I Love the little things, cuz when you grow up they are what you miss the most. I Love the long car rides, Because it's the journey what matters most. I Love the cold air nippjng at my nose,
The Rain. It trickles down my window seal.It rushes to the ground, doing a cannon- ball on the blades of grass.The Coffee. The smell inpermiates my nose,making me inhale deeply,enjoying its strong aroma.
We went to the pound to look at the dogs ‘Just to look.” my parents had said But we all new what was going to happen I was going to find a dog and we would “have to keep it” I was in desperate need for a furry friend. My life was dull and sad. I w
Once my dream was to leap up high, My bow bending, Letting my arrow fly.
I am happy When i get to see my friends They make me happy
Step out of the lense. Life put me on the spot. Disappearing smiles, i've been caught. Put a new star on. I want a change of scene. Look into another life of a suburban teen.
Waking in the morning in a country that is free. Smiling in the mirror because you are blessed to be healthy. Looking up above to see a roof over your head,
Seeing people laugh Making people smile These are just some things That make it all worthwhile What's the point of life? The point of life is this: Giving real effort towards
Hushed are the mornings, not one chore yet to do. The wind wafts over from my open window, cool and light. The solid hardwood on my bare feet,
What makes me feel good is singing It gives me a kind of feeling I can't explain the way it makes me feel The feeling is just unreal My melody makes me shine My voice is hard to deny
5 in the morning and I need that pick me up, Coffee? No. Sweatpants? No, Those don't make me happy. I need that magic power, that makes me feel good inside, Like a scented candle to my ears,
Teaching first and second graders makes me smile They make my day with their silly lifestyle I ask them what they want to do for a career And one replies loud and clear “I want to be a ninja turtle!”
happiness is being 4 years old and thinking happiness is spelled 'happyness' it's thinking mommy and daddy will always love each other it's elementary school carnivals in the fall
I am not feelin’ good. Instead of staying in my sheets I will hit the streets It was a bad day But this will be a good run.
You stuck to me Like how Dandelions stick to wool You tangled me into your heart Like Earphones You opened me up willingly
The invisible force blowing the trees The flowers blooming and blossoming with glee With each and every day The Earth exhales in its majesty
When the going gets going And the tough gets tougher, I need something there to help me to muster The means to get up, thankfully I got just that They help me out when I reach a small spat
Love deeper than the blue of deep My love is deep, deeper than the blue of deep My love is envied by all of mankind,
Have you ever heard the saying " The first person you think about when you wake up, And the last person you think about before you fall asleep at night, Is either the cause of your pain or your happiness."?
Inhale. Fingers tucked under the hem of my dress, Heart echoing the clapping enveloping my ears I want to disappear.
For the most part, I am okay. But there are times when I feel blue and grey. Instead of feeling lively and fun, I feel dull and there is no sun. And when I'm feeling small or down,
There are some so selfish, egotistical. There are some, through actions: analytical- determining suite, of gloom and fright As if to say: you have no right.
"It's a disguisting color!" Well, mam, I beg your pardon. But that color I just mentioned- Happens to be my favorite. "It keeps you awake." Can't deny that one, But that's the fun,
i am the burried treasure found centuries after being hidden away under blankets of rubble. my eyes decorated with rings of purple and blue from a soundless slumber, evidence of a sleep still needed to be had.
School, what grade do you have? Mom, I'm tired, "Go to sleep sweetie," But I'm not tired. Why do I stay up so late? It's all worth it in the end, or is it even worth it at all.
Life can be rough When emotionally, you are not that tough. I try to keep my head up by enjoying the little things, like coffee in my cup. But life isn't all that bad, I have ways to keep myself from feeling sad.
We ask why life is so hard? We always are seeking a guard? I feel down when I see the long road. Thinking of the very heavy load. I get mad when I feel down, just like a ancient and worn gown.
When the brushhairs touch the smooth canvas My abstract thoughts and feelings are no longer outlandish My cheeks lift up pulled by beautiful happiness As ideas come forth unridiculed by their possible wackiness
Sometimes you just have one of those days Where absolutely nothing is going your way you bombed that science test you spilt juice on your shirt you scraped your knee dropped your ice cream on the dirt
Taking in each deep breath in slowly without a miss, Letting my stress dance away in an espresso bliss. Forgetting all the negatives that turn skies melancholy, Watching as my sorrows melt in a mocha swirl's melody.
I french kiss the morning, And open my eyes, The sun is smiling; the clouds are high, I jump out of bed, and grab my book, Then search in earnest for a quiet nook, I finish my story and hike the trail,
Life is tough, Days are dark But what makes rough Feel less tough Is a nice long walk
I hear a light stomp in the next room, and I roll over. A quiet second goes by and I doze off again. Another stomp, and I sigh as my eyes begin to open. Your dishes clank,
When the sun hits my skin, it makes me smile with a glow. No one will ever know how my skill feel unless they see my glow. It gets attention and paparizzi on a daily because it glows so bring attention stays on it.
a quiet afternoon, a mug of coffee encased in both hands. i stare into the circle of beige, at the steam coming out of the brim, and i watch my anxieties evaporate. a blue turntable,
Success, You are the reason I wake each day, You challenge me, You change me, I owe it all to you, Success
Often we find within us that we can't explain what our troubles are Such a bizarre confusion, It makes the complaining of others our envy;
They might not be present for our entire lives, but we will always be there for theirs. Apart of our family and always in our hearts, The wagging tails and innocent eyes wait for our return from home,
Usually, I tend to be rather somber. But there are certain things that awake me from my slumber. For one thing, the winter makes me feel alive; like there is no other time I would rather thrive.
cherry flavored something dripping until sticky on my chin and my hands but i don’t mind rub them on my overalls making mad stupid jokes
I can read you better then anyone else as your gaze falls unto mine blue and green clash as you stare away and i smirk electricty fizzles out as you turn around and as your head hangs low when you realize
You will never know the feeling of freedom that surges down my spine, The shiver that cascades through my veins, As we race against time to make memories.
Did you know that child and teen suicide rates are at an all time high, right now? That suicide is the 2nd most popular cause of death for 13-17 year old boys and girls?
Fresh oranges and a sunset to match The gap between his teeth, only visible when he laughs and freckles the that speckle the tip of his nose. We call them sun kisses.
Sometimes when I'm feeling down or blue, all I really need is you. A hug and embrace makes me feel like I have place. Hopeless feelings deep inside, but with you, I'm built back up and restored with pride.
Dear Me, You are strong, You are beautiful, You are capable, You are smart, You will get through this. Nobody can control you,
A wag for a smile A nudge for a pet A lick for a laugh A cuddle for a hug A fetch for a ball Would you look at that I'm happy after all
Singing with The Smashing Pumpkins at sunset. Slumberous teenagers sinning on swing sets. Soul mates trapped in sundripped snapshots. Sipping a strawberry shake- two straws.
I was eight years old when someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up. I said, I want to be a singer. I want to be pretty, I want to be popular.
When the days are long, and I'm feeling blue, all I need is a ball and hoop to put it through. The sound of the swish does bring such pleasure. Plaing ball is finding hidden treasure.
As the sun rolls in Carrying a morning grin That is genuine
In a day are so many sad hours You may think I'd spend them alone But I give love to happy flowers And they make me feel at home
Exhaustion plagues this house For it is late - time for people to sleep Yet noise pulses in my ears And I sing words without a peep Music pumps through my veins Using my body as a puppet
I know now that I am not good enough for you. You want always happy and always confident, but I am rarely happy, and really confident. I found that bending to be what you want only broke me, so I'm done bending for you.
Little girl staring down at where her pen meets. So many thoughts in her head, but nothing on the sheets. In her mind, she creates a world no one else can find, But when she goes to write... nothing seems to rhyme.
A is for air force. It’s Captain Briggs in the jet. The toughest and proudest man that you’ve ever met. B is for ball, “why can’t you catch?” Dad grumbled as I shaped my small hands for the next.
My mind explodes with hatred. I was only told of the awful memories. I was only told of the abuse. My mom wanted to protect me from the bad. I was forced into a game of hide and seek except there was no one looking for me.
"Just Married" signs are so wonderful to be seen on the back of a car speeding down the highway to a destination unknown by onlookers. The direction only to be determined
If I could pause lifeJust for a simple momentHappiness--I'd have.
<p>I'm no longer in step like a marching band member off his countsI'm no longer in the program like a singer cut from the choirI'm no longer in the loop like a roller coaster off of its tracksI'm no longer with the conventional crowd anymor
Happy Wanting to convey that taste of childhood...bliss, Before it slips Through My hands gripping the bars-
I can't sleep but thats ok Yesterday's become today, Thinking about all I've had Insomnia is not so bad But each new dawn's a passing day And passion has avoided me, Still can't sleep,
Have you ever felt alone?Like there's all these people around you at work or schoolSmiling and laughingWith their friendsAnd theirBest friends.
You’re a fragile spirit, afraid to leave the grave of which you were laid to rest. Metaphorically, of course… Flowers used to grow in your veins and now they’ve long withered away and died.
She took it away Stole my life source Confiscated my heart And all that connects me inside The wires and the lines That helped me reach a place A place where I could be happy
It’s not a whisper inside but a time. Falling to warriors a thousand ways. Feels the stares of many , as they define. A vanquished hero, crumbling, is portrayed. A blossoming iris in a soul hates
This feeling Is foreign But welcome All the same It's strange To feel it Bubbling up To the surface Coloring your soul With its cheerful hue Splashing my mind
Day 1 I was afraid to have to repeat it again in the hospital because I'd rather be dead I have been there before, baggy scrubs and socks Stomach in knots, my poisoned liver still rots
What happens after I am happy, I'm energetic and alright. I'll be happy for a while, Not tiered at all, Keeping myself up, With these ideas of joy and love. This is my state of mania perhaps,
One of my favorite times is that transition of the sky between being black and when the sun comes starts to come up and make everything a pale shade of blue The quiet of itCars, freeway, trains in the morning
As my unattainable love sat handsome in my head, I dreamt of the could haves, and poetry, I read. The classics inspired me -- like Browning and Donne, Eliot and Plath and Shakespeare and Young.
There are times when I miss being a kid Where I touched the cracks on the pavements that I walked past by Where everything around me wasn't secluded, but I had a way to escape
I was in a big city And got a hotdog from a street vendor It taste sooooo good Ketchup, onions, chili and cheddar As I walked home with a smile My stomach started to dance
The world is a dark and dreary place But you are the light in my life You are the sunbeams caressing my skin As if saying hello to an old friend You are the burst of warm air
I saw a UFO last night Right up in the sky Don't you say I didn't I wasn't that high It beamed it's bright light on me And sucked me through the sky They ripped the clothes right off me
I will love you Till the day I die You can't stop me Don't even try I will love you No matter what you do Till the end of time I will be true I will love you
In the morning on the bus On the way to school I sometimes get a boner And it really isnt cool Cause its hard as a rock And I dont know what to do I try to pull my shirt down
I love when it rains like the Heavens are crying And I wonder if it’s that or something interstellar Maybe the stars are happy and the clouds were watching So they cried tears of joy Maybe He saw that we needed rain
Everyone talks about being real But it seems like The things that are real to them Are new cars, posting statuses, horny rap artists, bright lights, and mobile devices All these 'real' things
After having my heart completely cut in half My life was woe I didn't know What my purpose in life Was anymore I couldn't see what there Was to look forward to I was a robot just walking
The old wooden door creaked as it opened And it reminded me of the sound of my bones. While I watched you walk in My knees shook, almost as much as my hands, as I listened to the only sound I could hear:
My hand makes contact with yours Your fingers interlock with my fingers Your holding my hand in your hand My hand swings yours forward We walk hand in hand as one Your hand squeezes mine
Her life, cut short, But still, I would stay, A home, ripped away, But yet I would not sway Harsh words, that cut, But I care not what they say,
HAPPINESS Life is full of surprises; There will be days that Everything is going great – Then, there will be days When you lose hope in all fate. It can be quite a roller coaster,
Ten little fingers, ten little toes, How did I survive without you, I'll never know. One look into your eyes and I can see all that lies ahead of me Happiness, kisses, love, and hugs
Love: Human connection The exhilarating feeling of being close to someone Two souls, finding each other amidst the chaos of this world Two hearts, beating as one
You were gone for so long Now you're back Gone for too long Eleven months and twenty three days to be exact Oh how I missed you Your cold touch Your green skin
The little things You do for me Go a very long way The soft silent simple things When everything feels grey
There is a fire inside all of us. It starts off as a spark, then it connects with your soul and ERUPTS
Look around Left Right What happened to my sunlight? The rays of growth I feel alone Cuz in this world people don't exist, right? I loved the way my lover touched me
Let me try to explain, this is not what I mean:
You have that grin that makes me smile, Even after I feel that I have just ran a mile. You are the reason I wake up, You were my favorite little pup. Your the image that brings me warmth, So on, and so forth.
“It's so much fun! It's so much fun!” Said the deliriously happy red and white stripes, gliding up and down the flaps of the grand tent “It’s so much fun! It's so much fun!”
What can't I live without? My phone, my dog, endless possibilities. All things that make me happy, none that fulfill my answer. Laying under the stars, I think, I cant live without...Love.
1. Music is the one thing I can not live without 2. I feel like it takes me to a different place 3. I enjoy music as much as I enjoy sauerkraut 4. When I listen to music, different expressions strike my face
I crave touch The warm presence of a hand on my backFeeling light love with strong ropes that will never snap A tight hug every now and thenHelps me remember that I belong with them
Some say love's like fireworks Others say love is blind But I say love comes softly And it's all knowing in its kind
Here I am alone With only one thing. With it I can dream up anything. It brings me inspiration, It brings me joy, It keeps me sane, On this island. It is my iPod,
sometimes the simple things are better. eating lots of mac and cheese then sleeping, taking a warm shower and putting on clean pajamas, drinking a soda after a long day of being thirsty;
You can I love you You can say I’ll be here You can feel the passion You can sense the loss of fear. You can shine as bright as the night skies While swerving down the road
I can't live without chocolate. Chocolate is like the soul to my heart. It makes me happy, like the chimpanzees. The way it melts like butter as the flavor explodes into your mouth.
Little feet scrambling across hard wood floors Pitter patter of fingers across computer keys Haunting notes of a bow across viola strings Laughing notes of a song to each other across empty space Fresh cookies being carried across the kitchen to s
I am tired. Tired of holding my tongue at the thoughts my mind shouts. What do I want to do? Who do I want to be? How will I make money? I do not know. And I am tired.
I cling to those things That make me feel Alive. Those things that let me know I'm not so alone here. Those songs, Those quotes, Those drawings, Those books that keep my
A cold touchHigh windsWarm waterWet hairHot sand
Tender, sweet heart is full Light reflects elegantly, Last forever please
I fell in love at a very young age It was a magical experience A beautiful romance With many enticing words I fought alongside the bravest kings and warriors I slayed the toughest beasts
In my town Animals are left behind By visitors who "forgot" The giant dog from their back seat Or the cat that sits on their shoulders As if they were merely a toy Or a trinket Or a shirt
It is a bird on the silent wind A flower in the dying grass Water in a lonely desert Music in an empty room It keeps you calmly going on Wandering through life Never looking back
I missed you again today I've been doing this thing where I refrain from thinking about you until about the worst possible time in the day to break down When I'm dipping in the pool for the beginning of practice
Being excited to start the New Year Knowing there is nothing to bring you bad fear Maybe you’ll get up and grab you a beer Happy and joyful for the upcoming cheer Family and friends will all gather around
Welcome to society, feel free to be who you want to be. But, make sure we like who that person is. Love yourself and your body,
Who woulda thought Thunk Think Thinking about you I find myself thinking about you Why What How do you do it It? Take up so much space in my brain
Who Am I? I am not an idea I am not who you want me to be
I have a gold heart I do I do I Have a gold heart I do They chip it away They do They do They chip it away They do But now I am saved I am I am
What you see on the outside of me is a young freckled girl as confident as can be. She can stand and talk in front of people with ease, and take charge of situations in a breeze.
With chapped lips and an aching heart, I dream of glaciers drifting apart. Heavy tears freeze as they graze air, a blizzard arises as I feel your stare. I recall the first day you loved me,
Blonde haired girl with eyes ocen blue. Makes her way in this world. Keeps a smile on her face. But to her it feels so out of place. With scars on her wrist. She wonders why she exist.
I am happy, I am kind, I am jovial. I am honest, I am free, I am jovial. I am thankful, I am appreciative, I am jovial. I am independent, I am a dreamer, I am Lindsey.
Who am I? I am the new definition of loneliness if it ever needed one I am unseen I am alone I am unwanted Trapped in this place I can't call home, in a city so dead This is who I am
6/01/13 A small tiny prick A round little thing To much time to think Trapped in a restless mind Scars were wounds Wounds once to deep
Remember that time i climbed the fence?
Wake up everyday. Get dressed everday. Go to school everyday. Hide everyday. I was young, Innocent, Naive. It happened to me. I didn't know it was wrong.
I've written so much about feelings that I need to put on my thinking hat And find a way to feel free again Not bound by the laws of thick or thin I want to know that I am true I am something out of the blue
It’s foolish to
We're happy, oh so happyEven when we shouldn't beBut we make the work although, you said you hate me.. Yeah, we fightLike we can't get it rightAnd yet you still say that our future's bright
A simple smile can make you feel good for a while
Wild hair, breezy air even my thoughts can take me there. seagulls cry, time flys by in the distance, I hear the tide. Long, crazy grass glittering sea glass.
Your words do not define me For I define myself Not with power and glory Nor money and wealth You'll see her in the corner You'll see her by herself You'll see that she's a loner
I am what my parents always wanted me to be. I am a good girl with good grades and good friends. I hold doors open for people. I say please and thank you. I do what is asked of me.
A perfect family But only to the eye When you come into their lives That perfect family has very dark lies But o'no one pays close attention
I thought I knew what is was like to feel miserable But then I felt pain
The covers for never leaving after a one night's stand the bed that support me as I sleep the house that has provided shelter from storm and insects the computer purchased by my mother to help me keep up with the days
Wooden beams and wooden planks And salty sea scented air Drew our souls near the edge And then just held them there The wind whipped our hair The cold bit our noses
Fully Alive It's when a quart mason jar is filled to the brim, with black coffee and
I will always choose the simple life. The path that winds around the fragrant lilac bushes, that meanders across the hillside, and flows down through the river valley.
There once was a group of friends, The rules… yeah, they would bends; Awkward and silly, They’d laugh wily nilly, But that is not where this poem ends… The first is a girl named Hannah;
What would you say,If you woke up one day,And all your troubles seemed to drift away,As if they overstayed their stay.And let you out of their chaotic array.What would you say,If on that same day,
Life is so mysterious,Also very precarious.It can get tedious,Unless you are spontaneous!Life can be a hindrance,Hidden from the brilliance,Difficult to make a difference,
Family, memories, nights full of laughs Parties with cookies you split into halfs Fireworks, memories, running on docks Changing in bathrooms, forgetting your socks
Cherry blossoms, look my way. Express the right way for me to go, Oh, how your perfect petals sway. The deepened thoughts of those who pass high and low,
to drink is good; good for the soul, though only if, you lack self control. imagine this; picture it quick; you've drunk until you're not quite sick,
Our sun is bright and shining above Earth's grass is green and soft like a glove
(With sincere dedication to Miss Cloey Shelor, 03/22/01 - 02/08/15)
To my dearest best friend, People don't expect a guy and a girl to "just" be friends. When it comes to us, the rule bends. We understand eachother like a well-known riddle. From the outside, to the middle.
they say change is a bad thing I always heat "nobody likes change" I don't find this true I live for change Change brings adventure and beauty and new life Change brings new chances and adreniline
I am Tammy TortoiseBrown and green and blue and turquoiseTo do my best I am always poisedBecause I know my life has great purpoiseYes, I'm small and slowIt has no negative effect, though
Sleeping in late. Blue skies. Sunsets. Shy smiles and First kisses. Hearing music and falling rain. Seeing an old friend and making new friends.
She has the soul of a gentle saint
Mommy and daddy raised me to be a butterfly
Define 'happy'.... feel smiling so quickly your brightness radiates out, and blinds you. But even blind you see 'happy' because the sound of your laughter, in blacked-out eyes, paints the northern lights on your mind.
Holding my wooden basket, Fingers splintering, Walking through the apple orchard, Feet blistering. Birds echo their symphony overhead, Then my ears catch a muffled noise;
My hope is powered by the greatness of your heart. My smile is fueled by the sweetness of your words. My mind is functioning with the help of your rambunctious emotions.
Do we ever feel alone? yes. Do we ever feel forgotten? yes. Have we ever gotten help? no. Have your friends ever offered help? yes, but I think I don't need it.
Away from the commotion, away from the dirty, suffocations of the city.
Away from the commotion, away from the dirty, suffocations of the city.
Everything is awesome.You just gotta find'emBut have you ever gave it a try?
Hey life, we had a good one, didn't we. Lots of adventures, so many things to see. Ive done so much, yet it is barely anything. Thank you, for all the experiences you bring.
Liquid bodiesfluid mindswhy not heartsthat freely pour?They congeallike Jell-O on ice—for a timethen calcifyin reticent mineralitycompounding the granite wall
I LookedI looked for lifeon a dusty trailkicking a rock for milesand I saw a shooting star.I looked for lifeup in the skywatched the birds soarand saw shapes in the clouds.
Some days, I am ashen- I drag my way around, And I will not look you in the eye. I have no energy to do the smallest things, And I will slump into the wall when someone gets near.
If I were a crayon I'd color on everything In th shade of sea-foam green You'd see my work from all over Pictures, walls The bathroom stalls My color will be bright My color will be lovely.
once upon a time the end cant go back only look forward life is over death Why are you so scared of the unknown can't you see that light is
See i seen this guy,
It's like my thoughts grow outta my head; every curl contains every word I done said every song I done heard every book I done read And that hate and pain is like shea butter
Shower Thoughts and Dream Knots Shadow ships sailed across the walls and splashed into a ceiling speckled with galaxies, yellow constellations swirling behind clenched eyelids,
I’m a big fan of stars. Stars have the ability to make you wonder and make you think. A million thoughts cross your mind when you’re looking at the sky, as if there was a different thought for every star.
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.
Swimming in the anger, drowning in the sin. Its been so long, how long has it been? You left abruptly with no trace on your lips, Of remorse for the pain, and your angry countenance.
Swimming in the anger, drowning in the sin. Its been so long, how long has it been? You left abruptly with no trace on your lips, Of remorse for the pain, and your angry countenance.
I always used to see rainbows as a kid-
Here's my note to you, who's crying themselves to sleep or can't get to dreaming because of overthinking or having an anxiety attack maybe hunched over a bottle of that dear old friend Captain Morgan
She will be bring a new life to this world soon All she can think about is her bundle of joy That she will soon get to hold and take care of
I was glowing and I was beautiful,
So you think you like it? But don’t you see? I’m no good for you. I lie and cheat. I drink and smoke The things you say Do not provoke For me to quite, To, “see the light”
I am happy as a cloudas loud as a rainbowas soft as a breeze
I write of a sad love, but really it's not so. There are many laughs and breath taking smiles. My heart sings of a love unknown. Where it skips a beat when her dark brown eyes
Look at this mess that I have truly made I thought of you and then my heart decayed For if I see that you can truly be All mine you'll have a happy heart to keep.
Happy days come and go but nothing more They say to prove your worth or else be sore Ive come and gone and begged my soul to greif Alas it has been nothing but a dream. Those boys and girls pertain to nothingness
Green is the sound he makes when you spin him around high in the air. Green is the trees he climbs on. Green is the grass when he rolls down the hill. Green is when he asks you to join him. Green is when you say yes.
12/1/2011, age 17 A shining star, a cute kitten; All are beautiful, all are bright. How is one to avoid the beauty Of the earth? You cannot say that laughter is bad
The average person has one face. I have none I wear a blank mask The mask is for: Happy Sad Mad Betrayed Desperate I have no face I wear a mask
A kid who just wants to be heard Someone who wants success Others look at him and say oh my he's blessed They don't know the pain, the problems Of always wanting to be the best His parents are proud of him
You keep green apples and orange on the desk in your room. Pictures of me, and me and you, hang from the shelves like prayer flags.
Paths.Straight or sturdyCurved or dirty
Do you know a life at home?With heart felt loveAll around and above
I walk alone sometimes. you may ask me how i am, i will say that i am fine and i will ask if you would like to walk with me. I walk alone sometimes. it does not bother me,
Movements in my stomac,vomit , headaces so the first thing i do is get on my knees Put my hands together in pray to the sky, Asking god please

WAR.... "War does not determine who is right... just... who is left."
They say life is like a book of handwritte
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. That's society That's life Where are we now? Make up Filters Editing Is this beauty? Chocolates Roses Are they cliche?
This sadness. I feel my chest being crushed ever so slowly. Pushing harder and slower. Farther and lower. My heart throbs like a beating drum before battle.
A face that's kind, With just few zits. A smile that is funnier than an orange rind, With a really slow wit. A walk without balance or grace. A mind filled with irrational fears.
I smile in hope they will stop staring. I smile in hope that they will see the beauty I see when I look in the mirror. I smile in hope to make someone's day.
The plans the worries the stresses the fears. We all want to smile but some don't know how. The ability was lost some time ago without realizing what we've done to ourselves.
What I'm about to say is from what I've learned No matter your agreement or concern Poetry can be written by anyone No matter by paper or touge Your reason or cause
I may not be what you envisioned That perfect porcelian doll. It wasn't my decision
That feelining of...the cool waters, light blue wave, a tall glass filled with water, the clarity of the water, the warmth of the water, jumping into the water, the coolness on your body, the burning on your body,the water moving around you, the
Gravity seems compelled to affect my tears alone. I'm suspended above the crowd that will always judge me. They see me as falling,but I'm stuck in the air--
When there is nothing left to do, I smile. not an ordinary smile though. It’s contagious. Infecting everyone around. Soon the whole room embraces the same type of grin. One that says,
Through the lens, you see is a smiling girl. On the screen, she stares back at you with glistening green eyes. Everything about her screams "happy!" Everything you read makes you smile,
Who am I without a filter? For the past four yeasrs, I haven't had an answer to that question I've spent so long trying to become littler I've tried to disappear which is something I probably should mention
My soul reaches out for comfort, contentment even. I bask in the ways they teach me, the ways they want me to learn, to memorize. What to wear, how to look, what to feel. I begin to feel routine, I'm comfortable.
Would a filter be typing? Would a filter mean no erasing? Does that mean I can't correct my grammar? I'm going to give you the realest me there is, no bullsh*t. Well, to begin, my appearance.
You know perfection Is a man-made word Because it is shallow. Though its implications are potent, No poetry projects from its reflection –
I used to look in a mirror and see nothing more than a pale, meaningless skeleton Encompassed by pasty, white flesh with scars that seemed to never fade away no matter how much they healed,
An hour every morning spent on my make up and my hair I switch my outfit three times befor I walk out the door I dont do this for the attention of some flawed attraction, but I do this for me.
In darkeness, there is light. In the rain, there is sun shine. So even while I'm unable to grasp the pai, my mind is at ease. For even through death is life.
Flawless is a word, an adjective that describes something or someone that Does not have defects or faults, none that diminish the value of something
Morning, its your wake up call, Don't fall back asleep, you might not get another chance, This might make you want to get up and just dance, Rewards don't just come, don't just glance,
What am I underneath it all? I am afraid, of new, of alone, of failure.
I will always believe in you though we’ve never shared a word The years that pass with grains of sand only to be remembered. In your tears I’ve understood every word no one else ever heard.
You see that silly girl making faces? Her tongue out, and crooked smile? Yeah, that's me. In all my glory, With hair that doesn't want to cooperate, And Acne that's hard to cover up.
Your upraised so high, and I am so low I upraise you so high, each and every day Each night I lower you down, like a show We complete this task, even in the gray
There is no human “norm” Black ink writing forget-me-not notes on your skin, You’ll hear future melodies Where people dance euphorically exhausted Dousing pale cheeks with spirit heated
I am a Mormon
I never feel rushed Or pushed
Not sleeping the night before Fatigued, feeling not up to par Watching the clock so intently Waiting for the day to be over So that you can run upstairs Brush your teeth and then Fall Fall
Who's wild and crazy A girl who's set free someone who listens but can talk to those in need
I am flawed.But i am happy with my flaws.I may have epilepsy.But it won't keep me from having a pepsi.I may have feelings that i don't talk about.But i am content without a doubt.
Perfect, That I am, So perfect in fact, My name is Sam. From my head to my toes, From the wrinkle in my nose, The perfect five foot height, The perfect far-sighted sight.
My shoulders are drooping underneath the heavy weight of expectation. I'm being dragged by the leash of society.
13 160 At a time when all anyone wanted was to fit in, I could not hide in the crowd. If you cannot blend in, you must choose to shrink back or stand out. 18 120
Raw as can be, I sit on my chair,feeling,although I don't like to be felt. My head hurts from thinking too much aboutthe undeniablefuture.
WHO’S FLAWLESS? Flawless because I’m contempt with the person I am / becoming. Flawless because I’m eighteen proud and gay. I am the problematic child.
No filters there's a balance. Taking the happy with the bad Teaching myself there's more in life to be had I need some guidance in my hear, karma after dogmas looking to philosophies of the world
No Filter Freckles and high cheek bones. That's all I see. Bright blue eyes and long, dark eyelashes
I am a shell that does not fit So instead, I just walk away Leaving a desperate shadow of despair behind Now I am here Showing you the true face A face with an out-going gaze
Perfection is a plauge spreading through their bones. Perfection is an irrational conclusion to simplistic ideas. Perfection is a sense of security that everyone craves. Perfection is based on the fear of being different.
There I was another day spent counting miles subtracting calories calculating deficits. Run, run to look good, run to look pretty, run so boys will like you.
it's your long, gray braid that i love the most. a wisp of wisdom cascading down your back, never tangled, whispers hymns through all the madness. crumbs of noodles and rice spill from it while you walk,
He's quiet, and sincere. He plays sports 'round the year. His life is put together; He's got nothing to fear. They've never asked Adam. They only know about him. He wants to answer all the questions
What is the true meaning of flawless A hope, an ideal, a dream that one may fit society's standards? Is it influence? A man, woman, or child that tries to make the world better,
Like a Scarlet Lake she sits Pondering the mysteries of life Looking up at the universe
O'l Ollie is my granddad He's as old as a Dino If he heard he'd be mad So if he asks say no
Skiing is good, have you ever been? I have since I was only three. I've missed some years, since those hills I've seen. It makes me the happiest I'll ever be.
My skin is the skin that God put me in on the day that was the day of the 17th in the month of November the year being the one-thousand nine-hundred nintey-seventh year Anno Domini....
To wake up and see a part of me
I am strong, No matter how many times you tell me I'm weak.
I am the child born on a late Winter evening. I am the woman you never desire leaving. I am the lady scanning frantically in libraries. I am the hopeless romantic ending February.
If I cry or if I'm down My resillence picks me back up My legs may be strong but my mindset is stronger My confidence is not found in a cup When I feel weak I say, "I'm strong" and that just does the trick
I could wipe off 90% of that so called beauty with a kleenex... I see that your outershell is gorgeous Underneath that.. It's pure ugly No. Not your face. Your insides. Your guts. your soul.
Many people like to judge others, Because they're afraid to themselves be judged. They are terrible bothers, All because they're afraid their own bodies are too pudged. I disagree with that flawed logic,
“You chubby good for nothing hog.”“Maybe if you go on a diet you won't break everything.” Starving, and crying. Starving and crying. Starving and crying,
Anxiety. Depression.They're not things you can define.
'French,' she told us, 'Is the language of love' She sounded like she knew what she was talking about She was a professor after all So I wrote it down in my notebook
When I was young I was teased and called burned
"You're weird!"- Who's weird? What's weird? The word weird is weird. How can we determine what a person is? Different seems bad now at days. Why? "You're weird!"- Who's weird?
Smile, Wave hello, Be friendly, Be bold, Be perfect. They expect that from you, So you give it to them. “What’s wrong?” They ask, if you only slightly frown.
Life has its ups and downs as you know Things can make me sad and they can make me happy Yet I want to be uplifted. Perfect euphoria is within my reach when: I stand in the clearing of a snow-cloaked forest
You see the Iron Empress Who standing tall, stoic, regal. She hides the Carefree Clown Who could entertain for hours. She hides the Lovesick Maid Blinded by love unrequited.
Boom, Boom, Boom; The music consumes. I breathe it in; I melt at its beat. We are one. Thump, Thump, Thump; My feet pound the ground. My father and I;
You are quickly blinded by light, as your ears are blasted by noise. It even dazzles during the night, and captures you in its joys'. The city never sleeps, as Frank Sinatra once said.
I jumped in a pile of leaves
These are some of the things I miss, Stuff I took for granted; like a good night kiss. Or last May I wish you were here to see me play!
Burritos and tacos oh my school has started again and I want to cry waking up at 6 AM WHY?
I like pieces, And being part of the puzzle. Petting my dog; Scratching his ears, his head, his neck. I like the way the morning air Feels on my skin And how night is enchanting
there's nothing like car rides at nightblasting music loudwindows down, your sight filled with city lightsthere's nothing like laughing till you can't breath
I think of a happy place Somewhere that instantly brings a smile to my face. Taking in every sight and sound, Who could miss that pink and blue castle that stands 75 ft aboveground?
Out of all that makes me happy, I include scenarios I make in my head. The stories I dream, thinking at night, Laying alone in my bed. If you haven’t done this, give it a shot,
Behind my “I could kill a man” exterior I am bubbling with little joys Happy thoughts and events like counters At Disneyland filing in and through On their quest to experience some joy
I am lusting after the red melon green lights making amber on your skin
There's so much to life that you just gotta be happy, Now I'm not just here trying to be all sappy But life is too short to be down So make your day by day goal to never never frown And never say never, ever
Although winter is fast approaching, I'm not worried about thecold, Because the things that keep me warmest aren't exclusive to the summer: I'lll still be reminded that I'm loved by family and friends alike.
Her Happiness By Adriana Gutierrez
The provider of easy entertainment The originator of the moving picture in a home environment You are what I look forward to, and wake up for everyday You are the only thing I ever put on my calendar
Time keeps moving forward Nothing's slowing it down. Friends will disappear from every corner Even the ones who promised to stick around If only my time with them was as long as the classes
The brilliant bright blue sky,The super sized sun,
When I go through the drive thru, I always see you there When I roll down the window, I smell you here and there All I eat is YOU No burgers, shakes, or nuggets You are w
MUSIC... Loud, Powerful, Moving, Sad, Happy, Inspiring, Passionate, Loving, Tranquil, MUSIC... Moves me, Lifts me, Lets me breath,
Dance is known as the language of the soul . A boundless reach. An endless beauty that waits to capture and move.
RLRR LRLL In a hall of thousands
It is the pinnacle of happiness, Acceptance, love, friendship, and safety. Some could light up New York City, Or just someone’s day. It gives you the words you don’t have, And what you need to hear.
Rising to the glow of your brightness
Oda a La Danza Una Memoria Bella Danza, danza, danza Hay mucha vida en sólo una palabra Vida les da a los bailarines O, danza danza danza
its a cover its a page its a hand with a pen its a rainbow Its a sky its the waves And the sand its hopefull it inspires its what i love Its happiness.. its mine
What makes me smile? Well that's a funny question, For the things worthwhile, To me at least, Are simply a facial expression. A sparkle in the eye,
A white sheet and lead is only the beginning
Lure them in with your evanescent gleam. Bind them into your eternal paradise. Throw their hypnotic nothings to the wind. Craft velvet wings from jewels. Your primrose shimmer must never dull.
I wonder if thou hath dots on thy face
I am different. At times, even belligerent
I'm scared of relationships. Always have been. I know all that I have to offer. I know who I want to offer it to. But what if it all falls through? It's the “what ifs” that kill me slowly at night.
Two flightless birds huddle together in the distance
Smiling is contagious, You catch it like the flu. When a person smiled at me today, I began to smile too. I passed around the corner, And a man saw my grin. When he smiled I realized,
The happiness is hiding inside
The lights are dark Orange on the horizon is all you can see But wait A silhouette is there Standing No Posing Poised with their toes Just meeting the ground Music
Camera lights flashing, hundreds of people clapping. I did it; WE did it. The smiles, the laughs. The friendships that will always last. How did I get so lucky? Stepping onto that mat;
My spanish lover is charming He speaks with the knowlege of and educated graduate He walks with the stride of an ambitious gentleman He's different from the others, obviously
34,34 percent of teenage girls have at least one pregnancy before they turn 20 70,more than 70 percent of teenagers in general have at least one drink by the age of 18
Summer slips away and we students rush in to the facilities that torment us so. We'll spend hours a day in chairs of stone, forced to learn things we don't wish to know.
I stand here, baffled By the girl in my sight Her briliant smile, bashful Shines with a startling light
There is no other Thing that could ever Bring out these emotions Not only the good
Everyday is a day to be alive! A day to rejoice in the beauty of the randomness of the universe! A day to look up to the night sky and bask in the glory of the stars The very stars that die so that we may live!
When I am left with the emptiness in my bedand loneliness consumes my heart,I think of you. I think of all the times we had together.I think of the December nights we spentlaying next to each other
1 and 2 Arm here hip there Hit it hard now Fly through the air You're taken to another place 3 and 4 Your soul leaves your body You're wanting more
The colorful flowers The tiny sprinkles of a morning shower. The good news on the news without any new fueds. The smiles on the other peoples faces, even with those nasty hurtful braces.
I find my smile in a round ball. I kick it and chase it throughout the halls. On game day my stomach churns but I know I will not fail. No one else is up to my scale. Scoring goals and winning games that is what makes my day a little less lame.
The thing that makes me happy is out of the norm, it doesn't have a specific shape or form. It can open wide, or it can stay shut. Watching it spin is more than enough, I love the way it shines in the light.
Senior year’s starting now
When darkness surrounds me, When hateful words weigh down heavily, There is always one thing, That is sure to bring, A smile onto my face. My worries vanish without a trace.

Sometimes, the hardest thing to find in this world is yourself. Who are you when you have everything is as important as who you are when you have nothing
I swim through late night rendezvous featuring old Christmas music, my nose guiding me towards Coppertone dreams. Coconut lime incense soaks the curves and ripples of my mind when my heart wants to fly
A smile on my friend's silly face, A warm, happy hug, an embrace A child's laughter and joy, And their play with a toy. A simple meal and a chair, A kind word, not a stare,
A warm and gentle rustling breeze, gently rustling through the trees, Butterflies and bumble bees, a glass of milk and a grilled cheese. What are the things that always please? All these things and more than these.
I often feel the clouds fog my brain, does that mean my synapses are the suspention wires on the Golden Gate Bridge? Heaven knows. Makes me feel sick and low and empty, not empy, full,
I sing a song, a song i sing, sitting on a tire swing Loving, living, breathing air summer breeze blows in my hair The birds disburse as notes fly away
It is the sound of the rain in early noon that reminds me that happiness will be soon. It is the sunlight after a rain so strong that could never in a decade break this bond. It is the laughter of a kid
It's a baby boy
I sing a song, a song i sing, sitting on a tire swing Loving, living, breathing air summer breeze blows in my hair The birds disburse as notes fly away Laughter echoes, as we sing all day
It's on the news, all of the time That death shall come and seek Where death shall find
The Thump Thump of my heart of which I cannot surpress my emotions,
Wherever I am, As long as I’m out, Over the blue waters I go To catch some trout. But never after a full moon. That’s when they have their feasts. With the moonlight shining over the water,
When I get up in the mornings I don't want to die anymore. I don't get up and think that I am ugly. I eat on a regualr basis. I have friends. I wake up and I am happy. I am the person I want to be.
Why should I sit down watching time flow past like a river filled with melancholy reminders when I can be standing singing dancing to the rhthymn of a thousand voices a hundred drums
With my backpack slugged over my shoulder and my face set to a grimace, I walk through the hallway dodging bodies left and right. I yell in my head things I shouldnt say and I keep my eyes to the ground to not draw any attention to myself.
Sometimes I really start to wonder who I am I go to church and I remember but then as soon as i walk out the doors and forget again in this seemingly endless cycle I go, over and over and over
The thing that makes me happy, more than anything else, is the ship that never sinks, we call it friendship. Though many things happen, Good and Bad, Friendship will always last,
Does it take life to understand death?
My head hurts. My bag is heavy. I feel it pull my shoulders down to my aching feet; To the ground. My back, oh my back. The brisk wind slaps me. My bones ache. My body stiff against the attack.
A new school year. A new beginning!
I had alwa
17 years of ballet never attended, toes bouncing, heels
Life is so Very Sweet Like Drippy Honey but Sad like Melancholy But Life is worth it
The heat, the sun, the humidity Flute, 6ft poles and bass drums banging my summer days My summer ended early but that's okay I'd rather learn rythms and tosses than sit at home
Frogs, food, and video games, That's what makes me happy, Family, friends, and life, That's what makes me happy, These few things, Is what is keeping me alive, Without these people,
I like the sound that emmits from my headphones, the colors that cover the pages of my sketchbook. The sun that shines so warmly when I sit out on my porch, Literally heaven for even just a few minutes.
You go through guy after guy Each one worse than the last You live your life petrified Try'n to run away from your past But see I'm not like all the others I'll always love you more than him
It’s about the season, The colorful leaves, like I always dream, It makes me smile for no reason. The crisp outdoor air, Cut pumpkins everywhere, Cider being warmed,
It's six o'clock, My alarm goes off. Time to get up, And walk the dogs. The crisp, clean air Is refreshing to breathe. The dogs take off, Free of their leash. I chase them up the street,
How to be demonstrative of positive? I suggest gladness is an evocative, And through a consequence of the causative; a presence of your highest prerogative. It’s rare to find care in a world of unfair.
I don't think that I can see it as well as other people You can do it again and again for centuries Checking my work My new job Making costumes Doing makeup The only thing that can make me happy
There are a few weird things that make me happy
Since I was four, my birthday has been in ruins
Were all crying. Were all crying becuase the daddi issues and crying becuase the definition of beauty does not start with ourselves and crying because our razors dont solve problems;
The biggest gifts are presence and not presents,
I refuse to let you go
i think I am awesome, yes i do I think i am awesome and you will too competitive sports are my passion love to sport my volleyball fashion lacrosse is another favorite I just always crave it
He tells me i'm beautiful, makes me blush bright red. He tells me i'm funny, and thats enough said. He tells me i'm smart, and that i have a way with words. He tells me he loves me, and when he says that i hear birds.
Many peopleDo not care forWhat the stars have to sayOr what sign anyone is, But if the stars are to be believed,And my star sign to ring true,Then I am a person of particulars
I've clapped my hands I'm as happy as a room without a roof Because I can enjoy the good And bad Because I can sing if I want Because I can dance if I want
The silent notes float in the breeze from so far, for so long. They rustle through the ancient trees they are Forever's Song. As I stare out at the setting sun, over the scarlet sea.
Well I can tell you this much. My happy is real. I am a happy person. Even though I don't let it show. I can make it seem like I am having fun. Even if I'm hollow inside.
Lovers hold hands So instead let’s hold feet Hands can let go But feet chain us free We’ll walk about town on our Blistered black hands But we’ll never stray far; our ankles Made friends
The river flows backwards
There is a beauty in everything There is a beauty in simplicity In the simplicity of a smile That shines as bright as the sun that warms every inch of my body In the simplicity of laughter
Why do I have to explain myself to you Why do you criticize every little thing I do
Hmmm, lets see "what makes me happy?" I would say the typical money answer However, feeling accomplished makes me happy I feel like nothing can take my joy away
Sometimes i like to think that lifes a little more sunny,Or that its a bit more funny,And that it's really not about money.Sometimes you need to just shut the door,Sit on the living room floor,
I remember, Dancing in the living room, Singing off tune, I remember Playing in the dirt, rolling in the mud, I remember,
Dreams guid us...
Seeing is believingBut don’t believe everything you seeMost people don’t know what the real story is behind meLaugh, Smile, Joke, and CryYou would never know my thoughts from looking in my eyes
Through the Eyes of an Optimist By: Kegan Graham
Fragments of memories come back in flashbacks as I lay in bed at night. Pictures of happiness and hurt. Joy and pain. Love and loss. The good and the bad.
A growing voice inside my head; the essence of me. You were my only nightmare, yet the only person I wanted to see. I could not wait to meet you, for I never have before.
What makes me, me? Is it the way I comb my hair, my brains and beauty, or the shoes i wear on my feet? What makes me any different from you? Is it because i'm so kind
Maybe one day I will find someone who doesn't see right through me Change the path he's walking
The girl who seduces everyone that's who I was trying to be I ended up with troubles
These often dark and dreary roads I walk
Do you ever think about one situation & how one little detail could've changed everything?
People say rain is the crying of God, but I say different I say the rain is the crying of humanity, The emotions that are stored, but never released,
Stand tall, speak with grace, never crumble because I am going to win this race. I may be the tortoise and you the hare but look who finished the race with breath to spare.
I woke up with the thought of you, When it asked me when you'll return, I smiled and said but were through, It said well tell him to make a u-turn, I told you he doesn't want anything to do with you,
How could he just break my heart and not give me a reason. Could it be the month? or maybe the season? How could he make me feel like I’m trash?
I am a work of art, I am a masterpiece, My curves are my definition, that is what defines me. The shape of my nose,
I spoted a New York liscense plate hanging from your chest as you parade the streets, from one boro to next. The best artists around can't wait till' you come to town
Cognitively Not where I should be Feelin' crazy Not lookin' like me Mental pictures Leavin' me unsure Disturbing thoughts Have gotten me caught
"Angel," he breathed out, the look in his eyes the way his lips moved to form the words and the way it sounded when it left had me come to beleive that i had actually fallen, from the sky.
You, at any one time, have a choice of Good, and of course the Bad, and less recalled Nothing. It is through ation by way of intetnion that moves life. So it is in You to shape your twin universes, the
I find reasons to love you, I find reasons not to love you.
Floods the dark depths of out misery Takes our breath away for a time Steals all pain from our soul Fills the heart with bright cheery thoughts
A passion is a longing, A deep down tug or sorts, That pulls and guides you every day, To new mountain tops and new ports. My passion is very special, It involves all of you,
Deletion. Every single one gone. The memories are fading away. No way of looking back into the past. No young faces nothing but a faded thought. Deleted forever, what once was is now gone.
I'm the pe
We all yearn for happiness
I am black and beautiful
Happy What Is It? They say Its money They say Its not money What is Happy? They say Its family They say its marriage What is Happy? Is it light? Is it dark?
You are my antidepressant. I wake up, and drink you in. Throughout the day you make me happy. And when I’m feeling low you bring me back up again. But I can’t have you all the time
