    The Child- Poem

    The child waited As her family wept The priest prayed by her bed Her mother held her hand The candle was still burning on the nightstand Her father wiped his face with his handkerchief The room was so bright She couldn’t understand why Her parents tried to console her brother “Her suffering has ended” “She’s in a better place” She saw a dark figure approach her “It’s time to leave, child” “We must go now” He was covered in a black robe And no one seemed to notice him She took his bony hand And together they left “I’m sorry” the figure whispered As she turned and looked into his…

    I Am Different

    I am different And I cannot change I see things differently I sound different I prefer the trees To human company I like to be alone And think about life Because when I’m alone I’m most accompanied I like to dress different With baggy shirts And colorful shoes I don’t work well with others But I’m great on my own I don’t know what to say under pressure Or to new people But I’m great with animals I’m not like everyone else I am different And I will not change ________________________________________________________________________________ Sometimes people are just afraid of what they don’t understand and that is why they refuse to accept change.…

    The Smile- Poem

    An old man lies on the ground coughing All the empty souls walk by Ignoring his existence They’re too busy repeating the same task Every single day Like clockwork Looking without seeing Listening without hearing Dead to everything around them They can’t see how empty they are Their eyes cloaked by years of experience They talk on their cell phones And stare ahead blankly Coffee in hand A little girl runs to the old man Hello there she says brightly Her blue eyes glow in the sun Her hair blows in the wind Where do you live she asks Here on the street he replies Her mother calls her name…

    How To Irritate People

    For some unknown reason I find it weirdly satisfying to make people feel extremely uncomfortable in my presence. At first I did it unintentionally but watching people squirm was just way too much fun. Here are a few ways I found will instantly make people cringe: Pretend you don’t understand what they’re saying– when someone that you don’t particularly want to talk to or you just want to see squirm asks you something or even talks to you just keep going “huh?”, “sorry?”, “what?” Keep asking until the person goes considerably red in the face. The classic “I’m sorry, I don’t speak English” or “Sorry I don’t understand English” also…

    Hurt Me- Poem

    You pushed me And I fell to the floor And you held me in your arms as I cried And you promised “never again” And I believed you And then you slapped me And you promised “never again” And I believed you And then you kicked me And said it was my fault And I believed you And then you broke my arm And said that I provoked you And I believed you And then you said you were going to kill me And I believed you ________________________________________________________________________________ This poem is about what it feels like to be trapped in the cycle of an abusive relationship. It does not get…

    Dreams- Poetry

    She smiles as the wind caresses her hair Her eyes shine as she looks up to the sky She holds her teddy bear tightly in her hand Her lips curl into a smile at the thought of life   She frowns at the thought of school Her eyes fill with tears smudging her dark eyeliner She pushes her dark dyed hair back Her arms are filled with cuts   She’s been told she’s talentless again Her songs are all she has She dropped out of school years ago Her music is her only hope She lies on the ground ready to give up Her phone rings on the couch She…

    That Awkward Moment When…

    As a human we are all designed to make awkward and embarrassing mistakes that will have us cringing and blushing for weeks. Unfortunately, this happens to me more often than I would like to admit. Here are some awkward situations that happen to the best of us (even to those cool people from school you’re sure nothing bad ever happens to but you wish bad things would happen to): When you say “hi” to someone- okay saying “hi” to someone isn’t awkward unless it’s one of those annoying people who you try to avoid because they just never shut up even though you look like you’re in pain and are…

    Throner Problems

    *Warning: Contains Spoilers* Game Of Thrones may be the greatest show I have ever watched. When I watched the first episode (and made the mistake of liking Eddard Stark) I was a little taken aback because believe me there is no one in the world that can prepare you for Game Of Thrones. But at the same time I felt this unexplainable need to binge watch it for the rest of the day. I actually only began watching it a few months ago but I binge watched and finished all 5 seasons in about a month. “There’s a beast in every man and it stirs when you put a sword…

    Book Review: The Book Thief

    *Warning: Contains spoilers* When I first heard of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, people said it was unbelievable and incomparable but to be honest I never felt a particular longing to read it. However, I did eventually pick it up and once I did I could not stop reading. ***HERE IS A SMALL FACT*** You are going to die. That is literally one of the first things you will read in this book. The book narrated by none other than Death himself is a troubling and engaging story of a girl whom we soon come to recognize as “The Book Thief.” It is written at the time of Hitler’s…

    Things All Introverts Want You To Know

    Being An Introvert Being an introvert can sometimes be very difficult. You never know what to say, or how to handle new situations and people. Sometimes regular things that most people don’t even need to think about can make you freak out. Here are some things that will hopefully help you understand introverts better: We’re not bitchy, unfriendly or mean If we just met or even if we’ve been friends for a while but aren’t that close the only thing you’re going to get is a smile and some polite and probably painfully awkward conversation about cats. It’s not that we’re anti-social or even asocial, we like talking and are…
