Poem #360

Second poem of the day! :) (can you believe there are only five more left?!)

Dying Dreams
They fly from my mind, on dark black wings,
Into the abyss that sucks them away.
They hurt, ache, and break apart,
Never to be pieced together again.
I want them to come back,
I reach out to grab them,
But they slip right through my fingers,
And my heart breaks along with them.
I held them so dear, they were my life.
I feel lost without them, my mind is blank.
I feel like I have no purpose any longer.
My dreams have died, my future is blank,
And I don't know how to fill the pages.
My soul is sinking, my body hurts.
I fall to the ground and i can't move.
I don't know how to go on.
I disappear into the black abyss,
Following my dreams, hoping to catch them.
But deep down, i know they will never return.

Poem #359

Hey everyone!
Happy New Year's Eve :)))) I'm sorry I didn't get a poem up yesterday but i was with my family all day and before i knew it it was super late! but I'll try to get up two tonight!

SNOWFLAKES
Small white spirits that drop from the sky.
Never the same, they all look different.
Only a symbol of the winter season.
Whipping through the wind, creating a blanket of white.
Flying through the air until they find their landing place
Light or heavy, they fall down on Earth,
Always in different amounts and sizes.
Kids enjoy when they fall to the ground.
Each one is unique and special, like all of us.
Surprise of winter delight.
SNOWFLAKES

Poem #358

Hey everyone ;)
I'm so excited! :) My uncle and aunt came in today! :) I'll be spending the next few days with them which is always a great time :) I can't wait!
Today's poem is extremely random! I got this idea today when I was seeing my family. We were going around making up rhymes at dinner and I couldn't stop rhyming after we were done (which happens a lot when I start rhyming!!). So that's how I got the idea for the title :) Hope you all enjoy it!

I Can't Stop Rhyming
I can't stop rhyming,
It's all about timing.
I tried so hard to stop,
But it turned out to be a flop!
I think I'll go insane,
It's too much for my brain.
I'll be doing this all day,
It won't go away.
I guess I shouldn't start,
Because this phase never parts.
Once I get started, I'm stuck,
Until I'm completely out of luck.
This is like a constant stream!
I'll by rhyming in my dreams!
I think it's about time for this to end,
Before I drive away all my friends.
I think I'm finally going crazy! 
Well, at least my brain's not being lazy.
Alright, it's really time to quit,
I'm getting really sick of it.
I dong see how I've gone this long,
Because these rhymes are really not that strong.
Please don't give up on me.
I'm being as clever as can be.
I definitely just tried my best,
But I think it's time to give it a rest!
I'll close my mouth and not make a peep.
It's time for me to go to sleep!
I lay my head down and close my eyes.
And this is where I say my goodbyes.
I hope you don't regret the time,
You spent while reading my random rhyme!

Poem #357

Second poem of the day :)

Graduation
One of the most joyful days of your life.
Full of emotions, big dreams and thoughts.
Time to think of the future,
And celebrate the achievements of the past.
Excitement, tears of joy,
You are growing up, moving on in life.
This is a day to celebrate your accomplishments,
Share the joy of knowledge with all.
Your family and friends will all gather around,
There to show their love and share the day.
You have accomplished a milestone in your life.
You are ready to move out into the world,
Prepared to tackle all that comes your way.
This might see daunting to you,
But you will know; you are ready.

Poem #356

Hey Everyone :)
I had some internet problems yesterday so I didn't get a chance to post my poem but there are two poems for you guys today!! :)

BETRAYAL
Backstabbing words flow out all the time,
Everything you do is against me.
Turning on me after all these years.
Regretting our friendship, I do every day,
And I wish I had never told you anything.
You lost sight of the bond we had,
And gave it up without a care.
Lies are the only words from your mouth.
BETRAYAL

Poem #355

Hey Guys :)
Wow, it snowed a ton today!!! :O We missed a white Christmas by one day. Tomorrow my Aunt and Uncle are suppose to fly here so I hope they have a safe flight and I hope they can make it here :)

Giving Up
Walking down the road, falling down,
On my knees, I sink to the ground.
I hit the ground with a force,
Hard enough to shake the world around.
This is it, I go no further here.
I can't continue down this way,
It's too much for me to take.
Tears stream down my face,
And I feel my heart tearing in half.
I can't move a muscle, I can't go on.
The terror sweeps over me again,
As I realize what's happening to me.
My body and mind have gone astray,
And there is no way to pull them back.
I struggle to cease the tears,
To raise myself up, like always.
But it's too much for me this time,
You've gone too far, hurt me so much,
And I can't come back.
So I melt into the darkness,
One with the ground where I lie,
And there's no turning back.

Poem #354

Hey everyone :)
MERRY CHRISTMAS! :) I had an amazing and wonderful day with my family and I got some very nice gifts :) today has been great and I hope that you all had a great day too and some time to spend with family and friends!! I have a special Christmas poem just for today :)

Christmas Tree
Green branches, standing up tall,
While needles will begin to fall.
And lights of color shine on the tree,
Among the ornaments hanging free.
A star adorns the very top,
Carefully placed so it doesn't drop.
Presents wrapped up lay on the ground,
And are placed all around.
Smiling faces bring lots of cheer.
I'm glad it's finally this time of year.
We gather around, together as one,
And we know it's time to begin the fun.
I always love this joyous time,
So this is why I wrote this rhyme.

Poem #353

Hey guys :)
It's Christmas Eve! I can't believe how fast it came up! I have to run out to sing in a few minutes but I just wanted to get you guys a poem really quickly before I left :)

Light Up The Night
Sparkling with all different colors of light,
They bring so much brightness to the night.
No matter what, they keep on glowing, 
Even when the cold air is blowing.
They bring so much joy to all hearts,
The happiness will never depart.
It marks a wonderful time of year.
So many people join in around here.
Bright rainbows shine out to all,
In this wonderful season that comes after fall.
Gathering around with family and friends,
Hoping this joyous time will never end.
The lights will brighten your heart in every way,
And they are always here to stay.

Poem #352

Hey everyone :)
Wow! I can't believe Christmas Eve is tomorrow :O I have so much singing to do and I'm super excited! I always love this time of year! I hope everyone out there has had a wonderful Hanukkah or Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate :) Hope you've had a lot of time to spend with your families :) love you all :)

Angel Eyes
Large, round, gazing up at you,
They sparkle in the light above you.
Pleading, begging for your attention,
They want something important from you,
But you just won't provide it.
Longing to feel that warmth,
The happiness they wish to gain.
Their soul is breaking into pieces,
And it glistens in those soft eyes.
Hurting, tearing their heart apart,
Can't you tell what you are doing to them?
Look straight into those eyes,
And take a minute to see what you can find.
There is a message for you behind them, 
Trying to reach out, grab you.
So reach back to them, hold onto their hand,
And finally share those feelings.
Or else they will just keep staring,
Wishing you would see them,
And the light they once had in them,
It will die with the sadness.

Poem #351

Hey everyone :)
Today's my grandma's birthday!! so happy birthday to her :) <3
Another extremely random poem for the day :)

Cotton Candy
Fluffy and sweet, it's a wonderful treat,
Something that no others can beat.
Purple, pink, green, and blue,
They always have the right color for you.
It's as light as a feather,
And good in any weather.
It melts in your mouth, a joy and delight,
And it's delicious to snack on any night.
I always enjoy eating it at the beach.
Please keep it within my reach.
Puffy goodness, candy sweet,
Whoever created it is really neat!
I won't stop eating until it's done.
It always is accompanied with lots of fun.

Poem #350

Hey guys :)
Ahh today is the 350th poem! only 15 more to go! :O
Tomorrow is my grandma's birthday!! :))) Lots of awesomeness is happening :) haha!
Today's poem is about the value of clearing your mind. It can help you in any situation, whether you need to relax or you need to calmly solve a problem or argument with someone or something. I hope you all enjoy it :)

Clear Your Mind
Empty the space that surrounds you.
Block out the thoughts, silence your mind.
Imagine the wide expanse of white,
Wander the clear, open space of your dreams.
Let the quiet, the calm, fill your body.
Don't worry about what is coming,
And don't think about those events that passed.
Relax your soul, calm down.
Take your time to allow your troubles to leave,
Then slowly surface out of the blank.
Allow your thought to return to you,
And wake from your dream world.
You have relaxed, calmed down,
And now you can face the world,
Solve your problems with a clear mind.

Poem #349

Happy Monday :)
Today's poem is another one of those random ones that just sort of happens when I'm writing and I'm not really sure why. But that's what my mind wanted! :) haha :) I just go with the flow of my inspiration. So I hope you enjoy this :)

Burst Of Colors
A rainbow right before your eyes.
The sign of love, joy, happiness,
The message of anger, sadness, humiliation.
These are the colors of all emotions,
Pouring out of our mouth,
Or running from the end of a pen.
The different shades and hues, a wide range,
Something we can all accept,
Because they are unique to each of us.
The burst of colors flashes out at us,
All the colors flow into our world.
That's how our society, nature is built.
Show your true colors,
And let your burst of shades,
Rain down over the whole planet.

Poem #348

Yay :) New acrostic! I's been a little while since the last one :)

INSPIRATION
Intrigued by all that surrounds you.
Nothing escapes your creative sight and mind,
Seeing everything as a new opportunity.
Pursuing all that runs through your thoughts,
Inventing new works of art with everything.
Replicating your dreams as tangible objects.
Allowing all ideas to have a fair chance.
Taking in the world with all your senses.
Inspiring so many wonderful ideas.
Ongoing, the inspirations never cease,
Never-ending amounts of creativity.
INSPIRATION

Poem #347

Second poem of the day :)

Hand prints
Imprinted on the glass, the paper,
Tiny symbols of life and love.
Sharing the memories of those who have lived here.
A constant reminder if these joyful moments.
I stroll through, running my fingers over the paper,
Staring across at the window.
My mind swells up with thoughts,
And those tiny little hands grab at my head,
They tug constantly at my heart strings.
It all reminds me of those times I tried to forget. 
Everything rushed back into my mind,
And it overloads my body.
I feel as if the force of them knocks me over,
And I fall onto the glass, tears in my eyes.
When I push myself back up,
I've left a new set of hand prints,
And a new memory in this house.

Poem #346

Hey Guys :)
Hope you're all have a great weekend so far! I was out late last night so I never got a chance to post, but there will be two poems coming today :)))

Laughter Of Friends
Ringing continuously through the air,
Just like a song or bells chiming out.
Carrying their joy to all ears nearby,
Spreading happiness, smiles to everyone.
They celebrate the love of friends,
The creation of lasting memories,
Ones they will look back at for years.
Flashing smiles, cheeks rosy with excitement,
They share the laughter all around,
And nothing can wipe the grins from their faces.
Because nothing is better,
Than good times together,
And the laughter of friends.

Poem #345

OH MY GOODNESS!!! IT SNOWED TODAY!!! :))))))) (....nahhh I'm not that excited.....)
I went downstairs this morning and there were a few little flakes coming down but melting as soon as they hit the ground. Suddenly, half an hour later, I come back downstairs and the streets around my house are covered!!! :) It was intense! haha :)

The Future
Looming ahead, more threatening than it is.
Frightening to consider but necessary.
We need to plan ahead as much as we can,
Though it's impossible to be completely ready.
We need to work to make it better,
Not just for ourselves but for those to come.
We determine our future now,
Our actions today,
Shape our hope for tomorrow.
So many aspects of the world will change,
And we will have to adapt to them,
Because there is nothing we can do to stop it.
This is necessary in our lives,
And to keep our world running.
The future may be scary,
But we need to be ready for the adventure,
Because it will soon come our way.

Poem #344

Hey Everyone :)
In case you haven't realized, there are two reasons that we can all tell it's winter time :)
1) It's FREEZING outside!!!!
2) I can't stop writing poems about snow! hahaha :)

Snow Angels
Snow pushed in piles,
Away from where the flakes descended.
They create a curving figure,
A figure with wings of ice.
Lying down in the massive white blanket,
And making the fluid motions,
Those that create this work of art.
It's delicate, sensitive to the tread of feet.
They seem so real, so close to us,
As they reign over the white snow.
They are beauty, love, friendship,
The laughter of children, wonderful winter memories,
And the joy of families.
Beautiful creations we call,
Snow Angels.

Poem #343

Hey Everyone :)
I've been doing lots of writing and editing the past few days :) I'm also happy to announce that my novel has just broken into the top 100 on inkpop :) I've gotten some wonderful comments that have helped me sooo much so thank you to everyone who's been commenting :)

Archenemy
My archenemy follows me everywhere I go,
Constantly battering me with words.
Only saying negative things to me,
Never leaving me alone.
I can't run away, I can't escape,
And there is no way for me to retaliate.
Their thoughts and words pierce my heart,
Making my soul and my spirit sink.
I try to ignore it all, try to forget,
But I'll never be able to to the impossible.
Their job is to bring me down, it seems,
To hurt me whenever they get the chance.
People wonder why I can't stop this,
Get some relief from these insults.
But they don't see that I never can,
For my archenemy is myself.

Poem #342

Second poem of the day!!!! :)

Wondergirl
Superman, get out of the way,
Now is not your turn to play.
And Spiderman, just step aside,
Because I'm about to begin my glide.
Through the air, I race to the scene.
When it comes to this, I am the queen.
So Wonderwoman, leave this to me,
And Batman, you will soon see,
I don't need help, I can do this alone,
I will always keep my crown, my title, and throne.
I'll save the day and be the hero.
And all the evildoers will be a zero.
The villains are defeated in a whirl.
That's why they call me Wondergirl.

Poem #341

Hey Guys :)
Sorry I missed yesterday. I had a big concert at night and it was sort of busy so I didn't have time to write a poem. But today you get two!!!! :)

Somewhere
Out there in the world, it waits for you,
Calling out your name anxiously.
Begging you to come find it,
Travel the road, make the journey to see it.
It pulls you toward its open arms,
Ready to take you in and comfort you.
Providing all those things you need to live,
And even those things you thought no one knew about.
It knows what your body and soul wants,
And will keep you safe from the harshness of the world.
A shelter from your pain and sorrow,
Keeping out the tears that pound against the walls.
A place where you can travel to,
Let your mind wander, and just be yourself.
Always surrounded by love and joy.
We all travel to somewhere.
Somewhere is where the dreams happen.

Poem #340

Hey Everyone :)
Hope your all having a great weekend :) I've been busy today but I had time to write my poem :)) I'm so excited because our choir has our Christmas Carols concert tomorrow :) I can't wait to sing at it :)

The Length Of Life
Short, it slips away before you know it.
But each moment is worth the effort.
There are struggles and obstacles on the path.
But there's always some way to overcome them.
People who love you will travel along,
No matter what is thrown your way.
Your heart will break and mend.
The road will wind in all directions.
We think that life is long,
So we feel like we can waste the moments.
But it flies by faster than we think,
And life ends up being shorter.
This is the length of life.
Live it up.

Poem #339

Hey guys :)
Hope you all had a great week :)
Today's poem is another random poem. It's called Shooting Stars :)
Hope you like it!

Shooting Stars
Blazing across the sky,
Leaving their tales of wonder behind.
They fly throughout the black expanse,
Floating above the rotating globe.
They set the night on fire,
Lighting up the world.
And, as quickly as they came, 
They are gone,
Leaving only memories burned in your mind.
Lying on our backs in the soft grass,
We watch them travel their journey.
I wish I could experience that freedom,
The abandon of gliding through the air.
I could escape here in a flash,
And travel to my new world.
I want to soar through the world,
And my heart lights me up with joy.
A hand touches my shoulder,
And I am jolted out from my dreams,
As I realize the shooting stars are gone.

Poem #338

Hey guys :)
I'm not really sure why I wrote this poem today. It seems pretty random! haha!
But I sat down earlier and this is what poured out of the end of my pencil and it seemed right :) I hope you all enjoy it!
Also, one of my poems won another contest today!! :)

Name In Lights
Flashing, sparkling in my eyes,
Hanging in the air for millions to see.
My heart speeds up as I think about it,
And my face breaks out into a smile.
I can't control the joy in me.
That's my name up there.
I feel like I finally belong in this world,
And I can share my love with all.
My hard work paid off,
And I can't believe this moment is here.
I thank everyone for their support,
And then run down the streets proclaiming it.
My world seems perfect once more, 
As my name flashes in lights,
Right above my head.

Poem #337

Been busily editing my novel today! And ughhh I think I have a cold :( not cool!
Acrostic day!!!! :)

VICTORIOUS
Vividly appearing in front of your eyes.
It's near the end, you've almost made it.
Counting the seconds until you arrive.
This journey took so much out of you, but it was worth it.
Onward you run, feeling the excitement in your soul.
Reaching the end joyously. Finally.
It was a long road to travel down, seemingly never ending,
Ongoing, constantly you faced road blocks and,
Underneath, you doubted your ability but,
Suddenly you are getting the chance to become,
VICTORIOUS

Poem #336

Hey Guys :)
Wow, it's really getting into the winter and holiday season! It even snowed a tiny little bit out here yesterday! The end of 2010 came up so fast didn't it?

Almost Sisters
Growing up together their whole lives.
Not siblings, but they might as well be.
They are bonded together forever,
They are held together tight.
Best friends, though it may not always look that way.
They love each other more than either of them know.
Different likes, different hobbies and interests,
They are complete opposites.
But that makes them even closer.
Hearts are one forever,
No matter what they go through in life.
They may get tied up in the world,
Forget to always be there for each other.
Something will always bring them back together.
They can tell when the other’s in trouble,
And are there to help.
They can share anything with each other.
No bond is more special than this.

Poem #335

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all had a good Monday! :) I've been doing so much writing lately! Today's poem is called "Into The Light". Enjoy :)

Into The Light
Brightness floods through into my eyes,
As I squint to see the steps I take.
I feel drawn into the blinding white.
It reaches out to be, holds me.
With its thin white arms,
It drags me forward into it.
It makes me confused, it makes no sense.
But it also calms me,
It makes me feel at peace with myself.
I want to see what’s behind it,
So I give into the pull,
It’s strength is too great to resist.
I ride on the wings of love,
The happiness flows through all of me.
My heart beat speeds up,
And a broad smile reaches across my face.
I know I’m going somewhere wonderful.
I’m glad to be arriving.

Poem #334

Hey Guys :)
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I just had a wonderful dinner with my family tonight :) I think I'm finally beginning to feel like it's holiday time! By the way, I need your help. I have two books posted on a site and I would love to have at least one of them picked to be read by the editors. Could you guys go check them out and if you create an account/have one, add me to your picks and comment if you like it :) Thanks!

Young Forever
Staying forever, right here with you,
Watching the days go by and our love grow.
Keeping this young energy we both hold,
Having fun with everything that comes our way.
Living each moment to the fullest.
Still being foolish and somewhat naïve,
And everything seems so much simpler.
The happiness we share could never be stolen,
And we would always stay by each other’s side.
Never having to lose the other,
Or lose the relationship that holds us so close.
Time could freeze; it would just be the two of us.
Staying in the childish state may seem crazy,
But we want to hold onto our youth.
When we stare into each other’s eyes,
The knowing smiles spread on our face,
Holding each other in our arms,
We are taken back through time,
And are young once more.
Our love is timeless, never running out.
So as long as we are together,
We will be young forever.

Poem #333

Happy Saturday!
Hope you've all been having a good weekend! :)
32 poems left :P Enjoy today's :)

Moonlight
The globe of brightness hangs in the sky,
Sending glistening streaks onto the water below,
And dancing beams of white through the trees.
Lighting up the world with an air of mystery.
Romantic, joyful, or eerie.
Disappearing and reappearing in a consistent wave.
Seemingly unpredictable, not always there,
But lighting up our world in the darkest of times.
Shining down peace to our souls,
And taking us captive in its beauty.
Inspiring tales, works of art, and journeys,
As we watch its beauty glisten in the black expanse,
And the tiny twinkles surrounding it.
Casting out the evil from minds and hearts,
And pulling us together in unexpected ways.
We may not see it, but it’s true.
Beauty, wonder, this is,
Moonlight.

Poem #332

Hey Everyone!
Wow I can't believe I'm getting so close to the end of this poem challenge! This all went by so fast!! 33 more after today! :) I hope you've all been enjoying my poems so far!!

A Longing
A strong feeling of want that takes over the body.
A yearning that controls the mind and soul.
Making you wish hard to get what you want,
And pushing some to dangerous lengths.
Wishes to be with someone you love,
Or own something you don’t have.
Harnessing all of your thoughts,
Taking you prisoner in its mix of emotions.
Desiring a change to the life you live.
Craving relief, wanting you to satiate this urge.
Dragging you even further in,
And making it hard for you to escape.
Never satisfied, you long for it to stop,
Leave you alone so you can continue to live.
A longing, no matter what it’s for,
Is not always good.

Poem #331

Hey Guys!
I had a lot of updates for you all so I left a video on my Youtube channel :) Check it out!
Today's poem is about animals :)

Angels On Earth
A blessing to always have by our side.
They will be our eternal companions.
Faithful to us no matter what happens to them or us.
Bringing their own special world to us,
New emotions and fresh ways to love.
Extreme amounts of joy flood our hearts,
Just from the way they treat us.
Sharing a lifetime of love and loyalty to us.
Always there to care for us,
Even when there is no one else near.
Your heats will bond together,
A strong pull holding you close forever.
We need to let this relationship into our lives.
Help them as much as they help us.
Watch their eyes that want to love us.
Always delighted by our presence.
Or just to spend hours by our side.
Don’t live another day without this relationship.
Animals are angels on Earth.

Poem #330

Happy December everyone :)
Sorry this took so long to post! My internet has been down all night and it finally came back!

Spirits Of Winter
Cold, icy creations dancing through the sky,
Blowing with the wind,
Being carried through the crisp night air.
Glistening in the bright lights,
Sparkling with joy and excitement, all emotions.
Chilling everything they land against.
Melting in a rush of cool water,
Landing and washing down my face,
As we fall back on the white blanket.
Moving our arms and legs back and forth,
Pushing the soft cushion into a beautiful shape.
Nearby, a tower of snow,
Shaped to seem to be a human.
Crystallized branches sway above our heads.
We stand from where we lay down,
To see the creations we have just made.
Then we fly through the crunching carpet,
Amid the globes that fly our way,
Dancing along with the frozen angels.
Our breath blows out visibly behind us,
As we leave our mark on the blank white canvas,
Spiriting through the winter wonderland.

Poem #329

Hey Everyone! :)
Finally back home and actually feeling somewhat awake now.... kind of.... haha :)

Unbreakable Bond
Tough, tight, a force beyond belief.
There is no separation,
You cannot break these bonds down.
It is stronger than you think.
Pulling things close together,
And never letting them go.
Grasping on tight, dragging them.
It’s love, joy, hope, happiness.
It’s tears, pain, anger, frustration.
But it’s worth it.
Inevitable attraction will find them,
And an indestructible bond will form.

Poem #328

Hey guys :)
I'm going to be away overnight so I'm hoping to get a fair amount of writing done! Today's poem is slightly based off a movie I like :)

Final Night
This is the end of it all,
Right here, we cross the finish line.
It loomed ahead like a dark cloud,
But we never knew it would bear down on us so fast.
It seems like only yesterday we began.
We met, our hearts bonded together,
Though we knew this moment would come.
It feels like such a surprise, a shock to our minds,
As we wish for the moments to last longer.
We held on for as long as we could,
Each second was pure happiness and love.
From the moment our eyes met that first day,
I knew I wanted to spend these final weeks with you.
I yearn to make this time longer,
I never want us to be apart.
But I can’t stop life from proceeding.
This is the way it was meant to be, had to be.
Neither you nor I could fix it,
Though I know you think you should.
This is our final night.

Poem #327

Last day that my family is here :( they go back home tomorrow. But at least they will be back at christmas :) And we had such a great time these past few days! :)
Today's poem has a hidden meaning that I want to know if you see, so comment what you think it is! :)

Taken
Dark hands gripped my body,
Dragging me into their world of pain.
Thoughts swirl around that pierce my head,
Pushing my memories of home away from me.
I was taken away from everything I loved,
The bonds that ties me to others, 
They snapped them right in half.
Whisked away on the sudden night wind,
Chilly, blowing me off to this distant land.
They came in the night,
Snatching me into the darkness of their home.
They promised me that they would be sweet,
Swore that I wouldn't regret this,
Said it would be wonderful in their world.
But they lied to me.
Now I'm stuck in their harsh life,
And they would let me go.
I'm turning into them, save me.
I should never have given in.
I shouldn't have gone to that party.

Poem #326

Hey Guys :)
Another great day! Today's poem is a fun children's rhyme I made up! :) enjoy!

On The Farm
Working hard the entire day.
Now is not time to relax and play.
Eggs of chickens, milk from a cow,
What other chores do we do now?
Time to give the floor a nice sweep.
From one of the rooms, you hear a peep.
Cleaning and giving a horse a bath,
What will be next? You do the math.
Measuring out food for animals to eat.
You’ve spent the whole day up on your feet.
Outside the sun’s up in the clear blue sky,
As many birds go flying by.
All the animals spend time out in the yard.
You’ve spent this day working oh so hard.

Poem #325

Another wonderful day! :) The continuation of the thanksgiving festivities. My family came over once again and my friend Liz, who I've mentioned on here before and is practically family anyway, came as well :) We had an amazing time, so much laughter. Liz even mastered Dancing with the Stars for the Wii (which I sadly did not do. Took her one try to beat each dance and after she played about 7 dances she matched the number of times it took me to do one!! Hahaha :) But in my defense I didn't know how to play.... not that it changed anything once I had learned.) and played her first Nancy Drew computer game! Great time today! :)

Sleepover
Gathering all my friends together,
Hoping for some really nice weather.
There's movies to watch and games to play.
I wonder how long my friends will stay.
There are snacks and lots of good food to eat,
And a collection of music with a really great beat.
Pillow fights and jumping about,
And in the morning we'll all go out.
We'll laugh a lot and have so much fun,
And we'll keep going until the day is done.
Having a chat and staying up late,
And we have some activities we can create.
There is one time that night when there isn't a peep.
But no one really gets that much sleep.

Poem #324

Happy Thanksgiving!!! :)
This has been the most amazing thanksgiving for me with all my friends and family here! amazingly fun night! Laughing the whole time and I can't wait to see them again tomorrow! I hope you've all had a great and thankful day as well and have had time to spend with your family and friends!!!
Also I had the official word count done on my novel and I am a winner of Nanowrimo 2010!!! :)

Home Videos
Footage of the most important times,
All occasions, so you can remember it all.
A great keepsake, prized possessions.
Hundreds of your favorite memories,
All capture on rolls of tape,
Ready to be played back at any point.
You can share them with anyone you wish.
Experience the moments over again,
Laugh along with the fun times,
Cry with the more sad times.
Fill you with nostalgia, and happiness,
Love and warmth,
As you remember all the previous years.
And you miss those moments,
Wish you could go back and go them once more,
And this is where home videos come in.

Poem #323

Hey guys! :)
I can't wait to see my family tomorrow!! :) What are you guys thankful for? I'm thankful for my friends and family and dog, the chances I get to write and sing and pursue my dreams in general, the life that i have, and I'm thankful for all of you for supporting me in everything i do with my writing!

My Life Is Weird
My life has been weird since the day I was born.
And the idea of this had completely worn,
Into my mind, the way I should be.
So get to know me and you will see.
I like to be silly and have lots of fun,
And to spend time out in the sun.
When I’m with friends and family I’m really crazy.
But when I’m at home I enjoy being lazy.
My family and I tell jokes to each other.
This life is fun, I wouldn’t ask for another.
I do many things that probably aren’t smart,
But these things can be my favorite part.
And one weird thing about me you might miss,
I write lots of poems just like this.

Poem #322

Hey Everyone :)
Just found out that my Uncle and Aunt are officially coming here to visit for thanksgiving!!!!! :)I can't wait! Also, tomorrow, the winners for the contest I just entered are announced so I'm super excited!!! This week is going to be great! :)

Comedian
The day of work is finally done.
Everyone’s here to have some fun.
The comedian steps out on the stage.
The program shows excitement on every page.
The people come from far and near,
To see the funniest show of the year.
The crowd goes quiet and the lights go down,
And they hear the funniest jokes around.
He tells the most outrageous tales,
He teases, jokes, and regales.
It seems he never has to stop.
The crowd knows why he’s at the top.
He keeps the laughter going until the night is through.
There’s nothing else they want to do.

Poem #321

Hey Everyone :)
Super long day! Double doctors appointments which was crazy! :P
But good news..... ACROSTIC!!! :)

SPECIALTY
Special talent that you have,
Possess, for a certain activity.
Ever with you, you can’t forget.
Certain qualities that are outstanding.
Interests of yours are what shape this.
Almost perfect, very good at something.
Long, hard work put into practice,
Time spent every day.
You have an important,
SPECIALTY

Poem #320

Hope you all enjoyed yesterday's poem :)
I've been very busy editing my novel this week :) it's coming along really well!
Today is my friend Katherine's birthday so happy birthday to her!!! :)))

Staying Up All Night
It’s Friday night and I’m up and about,
So I asked my friend to come on out.
We’ve picked out snacks and movies and games.
This night will be anything but lame.
We set out our snacks, such yummy food,
This is enough to put anyone in a good mood.
We’ve set up our stuff by the fireplace,
A nice, well-lit, comfortable space.
We pop in a movie and sit down to rest.
This night will certainly be the best.
With the moon in the sky,
The night flies by.
Then the sky fills with light.
We’ve stayed up all night.

Poem #319

Hey Guys! :) Happy Saturday! :)
I entered another poem into a contest today so I thought I would share it with you guys for today's poem! :)

Freedom Calls
I would depart from what I know,
The existence that I currently cherish.
Giving up my possessions,
Just to be liberated.
Defending myself against any human being,
Or any trial that approaches my path,
Gaining the courage I need to live.
Being true to myself and my life,
Standing up in support of what I truly believe,
Even if it hurts those I care for
Plunging through the icy depths of my mind,
Down into the core of my body,
Just to unearth the answer to my difficulty.
Fighting through the torments of the world.
Losing all that I know and love,
And each person I embraced with my heart and soul.
Changing my life, but remaining whole,
For lacking this independence, I would be nothing.
I would live as someone I know I’m not,
A person I no longer recognize,
If I knew I would be free one day to live my life.

Poem #318

Happy Friday!!!! :)
It's another acrostic day today! :)

PENSIVE
Perceiving the world from whole new angles,
Extending the meanings of everything.
Never ending possibilities, no limits.
Special ability we all must use to find,
Intriguing ideas and imagination within.
Very thoughtful, deep in the mind.
Each one of your thoughts is so,
PENSIVE

Poem #317

Hey Everybody!
Guess what? I won the writing contest I just entered into the other day!!!! :) I entered my poem "Going Home" which you can find on here if you want to read it and you can watch the youtube video of it on my channel! :)

Plugged In
Music on, headphones in,
Pressing play the song begins.
On the computer playing a game,
Thinking of every movie you can name.
TV’s on your favorite show,
An episode that you already know.
Cell phone plays its catchy tune.
You’ve been texting people since noon.
You have sixteen tabs on your computer screen.
You definitely know what multitasking means.
Constantly switching between different things.
There is a new distraction that each moment brings.
Starting up when the day begins,
You are always completely plugged in.

Poem #316

Acrostic Day :)

SOMEONE
Someone is out there waiting for you.
One person you are bonded to,
Matched up perfectly together,
Even if you don’t know about it yet.
One moment, all will become clear.
Nothing will be able to stop it.
Everyone has,
SOMEONE

Poem #315

Hey Everybody :)
For today's poem, I wrote a fun rhyme about life :) Hope you all enjoy it!

That’s Life
The clock moves fast and time goes by.
Some say that life’s too short to even try.
It can be hard and tedious too,
And sometimes seems like it will never be through.
A lot of times you’ll get tired and need lots of rest.
Life will be better whenever you try your best.
Sometimes it gets boring, like every day’s the same,
But life is not just one big game.
Life wouldn’t be whole without some tough times and stress,
But try not to let it become a mess.
Sometimes it’s nice to just focus on the good,
But only when you know you should.
But even after each daily strife,
I hold my head up and say “That’s life!”

Poem #314

Hey guys :)
I think today is a good day for a new acrostic :)
(I smell pancakes downstairs!! yummmmm!!) <<---- random comment of the day

CLEANSING
Cleaning, refreshing, renewing.
Letting the old wash away for the new.
Exterminating the run down parts,
Away with the stress, tension.
New, change, are welcomed in.
Space is created for the new and the fresh.
Important and necessary to keep running.
Never beyond help, beyond repair.
Getting the chance for,
CLEANSING

Poem #313

Hey Everyone :)
I don't know why but today has felt super long. It's been a lazy day for me :) well, except for choir this morning. The organ died in the middle of our second piece! :O So that was definitely interesting! haha :) But my choir director and choir were great and we still were able to finish up the service quite well :)

Sight
Take the time to look at the sights around you,
Let your mind breath in the beauty.
Keep your eyes open so you never miss a thing.
Learn the full story of life,
Don’t keep yourself in the dark,
Not pay attention to what’s going on.
Use your sight to see what those you love feel.
They might be signaling for your help,
And you may never notice.
Use your sight to see inside yourself,
To learn how you work, what you’re like,
What’s going on and how you are feeling.
This sight inside you can help outside as well,
Help you to relate to others and help them.
Sight is important, both outward and inward,
And we take it for granted.
Use your sight for all it’s meant for.

Poem #312

2nd poem of the day :)

Early Morning
Wake up in the morning, it’s way too early.
I want my hair to be straight but instead it is curly.
I really just want to go back to sleep,
Turn off the lights and not make a peep.
I force myself to get out of bed.
I’m so tired and my feet feel like lead.
I can’t think straight, my mind is full of fog.
The rest of the world is sleeping like a log.
I get dressed and do my hair,
Getting up this early is so not fair.
I’m finally done and ready to go.
It’s time to go to school I know.
Finally getting over the urge to stay,
I realize that it’s Saturday!

Poem #311

Hey Everybody :) Hope you all had a great week!
Sorry there was no poem up yesterday. I was out extremely late with my family and didn't have a chance to post. But.....TWO POEMS TODAY!! :)

RENEWAL
Refreshed, changed into something new.
Excitement returns to your emotions.
Nice feelings replace the bad ones.
Energy comes back to fill you back up.
Washing away stress and trouble,
And making you feel new, fresh, all at once,
Like a wave washing over you.
RENEWAL

Poem #310

Hey Everybody!
Today's poem is something that happens to me a lot. I can't seem to forget a lot of things that have happened to me in the past even though I really want to. There are things i don't want to think about but I also don't know how to get rid of. I'm sure many of us have memories like these.

Stuck In The Past
I can’t get out of my past,
Can’t let go of it, stop thinking about it.
Everything that happened years ago,
It is all still preying on my mind,
As if it just happened the other day.
I want to forget every minute,
Come into the present and stay there.
Only think about what is happening now,
And what might happen in the future.
I can’t concentrate on anything,
Focusing is completely impossible,
When my mind keeps going to the past.
I’m stuck in the past,
I need someone to get me out of this rut,
Push me forward into my life,
So I can leave all of this behind,
And stay here in the present.

Poem #309

Hey guys :)
Well, I had already written the 50,000 words I need for nanowrimo!! :) I'm still not done my novel so I'm going to keep writing but I hit my goal which is awesome :)

Going My Way
I finally want to go my own way.
I don’t always want to stay.
It’s time to be free, to break out,
Discover what this life is all about.
I love where I am but I’ve got to let it go,
Travel the road that I don’t really know.
Go places I’ve never gone before,
Live, love, learn a lot more.
Jump into the world with an open mind,
And see everything I never could find.
Break the chains tying me to the ground,
Get the chance to finally fly around.
I take to the sky and fly through the air,
Knowing that in a very short time, I’ll be there.

Poem #308

Good morning everyone! :) Acrostic time :)

CALCULATE
Computing the facts, the information.
Always rapidly running through problems.
Letting all possibilities be thought of.
Caught up in the intricacy of thoughts.
Undoing and redoing until I reach my goal.
Lying right before my eyes,
Answers try to evade me, but I catch up.
The problems are never impossible,
Eventually, I always figure it out.
CALCULATE

Poem #307

Since today is Monday, it's a good time for a fun, cheerful rhyme! :)

County Fair
People will come from everywhere,
To come and spend time at the county fair.
There are lots of really fun things to do.
Everyone’s hoping this day will never be through.
There are many games to play,
I’d like to stay here the entire day.
It’s time to go on some of their fun rides.
And it’s so much more fun when you have friends by your side.
There are performance and food galore.
You never know what they will have in store.
The day is now turning into night.
I’m hungry so it’s time to get a bite.
You’ve had an amazing time, so much fun.
Time to rest now that this day is done.

Poem #306

Hey Everybody!
Happy Daylight Savings!! I know that's not really a holiday but honestly, doesn't it feel like one with the extra hour of sleep? haha :)
And just to let you know, 45,000 words for nanowrimo!! :) 5,000 more to go but my novel's probably going to be a lot longer than that.

Switch
You both think each other’s lives are easier,
Arguing daily about what it’s really like.
You each wish you had the other’s life,
So your lives could be easier.
You both think that you are nothing alike,
Like you don’t have to deal with the same problems,
As if you both lead perfect lives.
But neither of you know the truth.
I wish you could switch lives for a day,
See what the other has to deal with.
Stop this constant fighting,
Fighting over something neither of you know about.
You could see that you both lead tough lives,
Though they may be stressful in different ways.
You could see that neither life is as perfect as you assumed.
You’ll see that your arguments are pointless,
And that maybe, you two are more alike than you think.
If only you could switch.

Poem #305

Hi everyone :)
I have another acrostic for all of you :) enjoy!

PREDICTION
Premonitions, thoughts of future occurrences,
Reaching your mind before others.
Events that are seen before they happen.
Define the direction life wishes to go in.
It can be a blessing or a burden.
Cutting into the thoughts of the moment.
This is like a sixth sense,
Intuition, stronger than most.
Outlining the future before it occurs.
Not something everyone can do.
PREDICTION

Poem #304

Hey everyone :) Happy Friday! Hope you're all doing well!
I'm so excited. My novel is coming along really really well. I'm already at 38,000 words! if you want to check out my progress, see this link: http://www.nanowrimo.org///eng/user/708692 :) At the end of today's poem post, I will post an except from my novel. Also, I have a new poem video posted up if you want to check that out as well :)

Twisted
Spiraling up into the sky.
Circling around and around.
Morphed, changed into something else.
My words, in your hands,
You twisted them to use against me.
The thoughts twist around in his head,
And his mind becomes twisted.
Ivy curls up the sides of the house.
There are so many meanings for this word.
But none of them hurt as much,
As how you used it,
To hurt me with my own words.

Excerpt: A few hours later, I heard soft footsteps coming toward me through the grass and Ben sat down beside me. I sat up and looked at him as he looked back at me. We didn’t say a word. And suddenly we were locked in an enormous hug and we just sat there in each other's arms for a while and I started to cry. I even saw a few tears slip down Ben’s cheeks onto the roses beneath us. It was like we hadn’t seen each other in years and all the emotions that had been stored up came pouring out in one big rush. We didn’t even need to say anything, we knew it all already, and we already understood each other. So I we just sat there in silence and I melted into his tight, comforting hold.

Poem #303

Time for a new acrostic :)
24,000 words for nanowrimo :)

WONDERLAND
Wandering in a beautiful, peaceful landscape,
Only something seen in dreams.
Nothing like what you are use to.
Dimensions of wonder, joy, magic.
Escape from the normal life,
Right into the unbelievable.
Like nothing anyone’s ever seen before.
All of this world is full of imagination.
New destinations, friends, experiences.
Discovering you perfect,
WONDERLAND

Poem #302

Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a great week! :)
Here's today's poem! ps. already have 22,000 words for nanowrimo!!! :)

Monster
The monster growls from the dark.
Hidden in the depths, waiting.
Looking for the opportunity to jump,
Escape from the shadow and pounce.
And evil that takes over all,
Destroying everything in its path.
It’s hard to get rid of,
Hard to shake off, to kill.
It begins to take over you, all of you.
Changing you into someone else.
Pulling you in, and you don’t mind,
Though you feel you should.
You want to shake it off, get away,
But you are also tempted,
Sucked deeper into its hold.
It grasps you tight and you give in,
Stop fighting to get away.
Taken over completely, you realize,
You have become the monster.

DEVOTION
Devoted to being a good friend.
Ever-faithful, unconditional love.
Very strong companionship, constant.
Ongoing friendship, connected by a strong bond.
Together forever, can’t be broken apart.
Intriguing quality in a relationship.
Only between people who are truly alike.
Nothing is as amazing as,
DEVOTION

Poem #300

HAPPY 300th POEM DAY! haha :) and happy nanowrimo!
Hope everyone enjoyed the Halloween poem and had a good Halloween :) Here is the special 300th poem :)))) enjoy!

Home
Somewhere you can call our own.
A haven, a safe place for you to go.
A refuge for you to live in for years.
Somewhere to go after a long hard day,
Where you will always find comfort.
You can be on your own, or with family.
Rest and relax in solitude,
Or have lively conversations around the dinner table.
A shelter from the elements, warm or cold,
Comfy, welcoming to all visitors.
Full of love, happiness, family, and cheer.
A place where you come from,
Far away or very close by.
Filled with memories from many years and generations.
Origins, the place where everything started.
Holding your story, lifetime,
Your home.

Poem #299

Happy Halloween everyone!!!!! :)
I have a super special halloween poem for all of you! And.....TOMORROW IS THE 300TH POEM :)

Halloween
Colorful costumes, silly new looks,
Some of the children are dressed up as cooks.
There are vampires, werewolves, and a ghoul.
Everyone wants the perfect costume so they can be cool.
There’s a costume for everyone at every age.
It’s a fun little holiday for any life stage.
Lots of candy and sugary treats.
This day is always full of sweets.
And all throughout the night,
You will be full of fright.
Watch scary movies all night long.
The feeling of excitement is so strong.
Each child is full of happiness.
This day is much more fun than all the rest.

High School Crush
Sitting at desks, teacher talks up front.
A sea of eyes focused on the board.
But your attention, not on lessons,
But on the feelings of your heart.
Looking off to the side at someone,
You feel totally in love.
They turn, you look down at the floor.
Walking through the crowded halls,
Past so many different people.
But then that one special someone passes through,
And it’s as if the crowd parts,
Light shines down, making them stand out,
The only person that you can see.
Your heart begins to pound,
Knees weaken, you can’t focus on anything else.
They brush against you, or smile,
And you feel like you might faint.
Their eyes, smile, voice, make you melt.
Is this what true love feels like?
Your first high school crush.
