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.

Only between people who are truly alike.
Nothing is as amazing as,

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.
