You always think you know someone
When the truth is that you never do
You think you know all there is about them
When the truth is that you don't have a clue!
About what they do or what they think
When the truth is that they do a lot when you're away...
Are they talking about you?
Are they laughing at you?
When the truth is that they're doing both
So how could you stay?
Did you think by you staying, you'd help them appreciate?
When the truth is that you're helping them hate!
Helping them hate you more for changing them
When the truth is that changing them, changes you!
They're trying to call out to you...
When the truth is coming from friends or your family
THE TRUTH HURTS
Poor Lucy sat on a bench
After a while, came an old wise wench
"Poor Lucy," she said,"How do you feel today, on this warm, fine day in May?"
"I feel terrific, Old Wise Wench!" Poor Lucy cried,
"I can open and close my eyes and make eggs fried!"
"Really? How so? What else have you tried?", the Old Wise Wench asked.
"I tied a perfect knot that would've made a man cry.
And sang such a great song, not an eye in the world was dry."
"Yes! Go on! What else, my dear?"
"I'm bigger and stronger and no longer have things to fear."
"My dear, my dear, you know what you've got?
It's a strong case of Womanhood and you've got a lot!"
"Is there really such a thing?"
"Womanhood is everything and anything it shall be.
It's when a girl becomes a woman, no longer a sweet pea."
"Thank you Old Wise Wench!"
And with that,
Poor Lucy got up from the bench.
Run, kick, and dribble
Any mouse would surely take a dribble
At what I've got to say about this
If you run and kick
You better not miss!
"Alissa, HOORAY! You've saved the day!"
As my team members heave me onto their shoulders,
And I'll tell you right now,
I weigh much less than a boulder!
Coach calls to us,
I trip and fall into a puddle
Almost real it seems
Now, please, stay out of my dreams!
It was nightfall at a local Florida bayou. A very famished alligator crawled out of the swamp.
He could hear the sound of a party going on in a nearby house. The screen door was open. The alluring scent of meat wafted through the air. The alligator crept into the house unseen. With everyone talking, eating, having a great time, the alligator saw his chance to start gorging himself on the food. So he carefully went, unnoticed, into the kitchen and began his meal. Finally after completing his dinner, he spied over at a purse sitting on a stool. In some way this "thing" seemed oddly familiar to him. After realizing what it was, the alligator went berserk.
All I'm going to say is, if you are somewhere any animal can just walk in, you might want to hide anything related to it. Those people were not prepared for what happened. I can truly say that they learned a valuable lesson.
You stand tall and you stand proud
Show the rest that you think higher than clouds
You provide for yourself and your family
You do it all without rest, coffee, or tea
No one ever stands in your way
You get what you need done, not tomorrow but today
You expect no more or no less
But you do expect, only the best
You are you, and no one can take that away
You are, and always will be, you to this day
Comes in all shapes, sizes, and colors
We are individuals, but we stand together in trouble
You are now a woman, show the world who you are
Baby girl, you will now and forever be a star
You have probably felt pride before but have never known that is what it was. Pride comes in many, many ways. You might recognize these as things that have occured to you. They are basically where pride comes from.
Pride is feeling your child kiss you on the cheek and giving you a big hug after you have bought her a new cell phone that none of her friends have. To hear her endlessly screeching with joy and exuberance, forcing you to wear a pair of earmuffs with pillows underneath. It speaks so loudly that it could shatter any glass in the house. Or anywhere else for that matter. It might even bend plastic. You feel great, like you're the best person on the face of the Earth. No one can possibly knock you down.
Pride looks like hard work paid off. It could be a promotion. A plaque for "Employee of the Month!" Your new born! Or getting fantastic grade on something. Even taking pride in knowing you did it yourself.
It's freshly made food, made by "your" hands. You take a bite and no matter if you made meatloaf, it melts in your mouth. It tastes like sweet victory. Pride is stronger than any wrestler. Faster than the speed of light. Pride lasts forever! But if you don't pay attention, it will be like you never even had any. Pride may come in many forms, but you didn't. It may last forever, but you don't. Focus on you.
Many people do my dance down below
Diagonally, their arms go up and down
Any minute now my chain could break, letting me fall
Desperately to the floor and crash
Inhaling the lovely treats and drinks
Wishing they'd last
People laughing, having a great time
As I spin, not even a line
Just air and darkness touches me
If only I could be with the people below
To sprout arms and legs
Please, I beg
To form a mouth and lips and eat the
Delicacies calling my name below
Oh, how I wish to be human
But suddenly I realize these people
I adore so, are overaged
20, 30, many decades have past them
I swing madly from the ceiling in great rage
I've never seen anything like this
People, younger I've seen, very hard to miss
But I've never ever seen people like this
This is horrible, yes indeed, GET ME OUT OF HERE!
I no longer wish this horror
I think I'll just keep my honor!
Here it comes
Lord, I see it now
My fate has been told
The dreaded curse has been cast
Lord, I believe it's been here
Standing there so tall and bold
I love you, Lord
Don't you believe me?
i thought you did...
I thought I was your favorite child
How could you...
Why did you let this happen?
Did you know of this from the start?
You'd have had to!
How could you not?
Apparently EVERYONE knew
But Lord, why not me?
It would have been our little secret
Our secret called, My Fate
Such a beautiful secret to keep
But such an ugly one to hear
Lord, oh Lord!
I think it'd be absolutely swell
If you didn't keep secrets from me
I'm a big girl. I can handle the truth
Not such a hard thing to do
Lately your trust in me has been fading
Since the last time we've talked
Please make it clearer
I know you've not lost faith
We can do this, Lord!
We'll pull through this, Lord!
You've got to try!
Please, I'll cry!
I loved this world!
Sadly, it did not love me back...
Some friend you are!
How could you do this to me?
I thought we were tighter
Than Bacon and Cheese
Now it seems, that we are now Liver and Peas
Urgh, I want my REAL friend back! Please!
I thougt things were going fine
Smooth sailing from here
Until the words of your evil ways hit my ear
Obviously, and truly, you aren't a real friend
Atleast not to me!
You are NOT someone of which I can depend
Though it seems
I am mad at you
I still care deeply
We've hit rocks
And drained creeks
But as of lately
Our bond has grown weak
Angry, for what?
I do not understand
Is it that you do not feel in demand?
Do you want to be the boss?
To run peoples' lives
Is that what you want?
To make others cry?
You're a monster!
Yes! It's true!
How could I have associated
With the likes of you?
Was I under the influence?
Was I taken away,
By all the times that you chose to say,"Hey!"?
It's over for now
I can't take the hurt any longer
I want you out
Please don't dilly dally or wonder
Leave my life NOW!
You're a goner
Are you still angry, my dear?
Boy, I hope you are!
You need to feel my pain
Because the way you feel is off by far
I am superior to you!
Don't believe me?
How dare you?
It's the simple truth
I've got brains
You've got brawns
But tell me
Since when has that ever helped you?
I've got my wits
You have your abs
They still can't teach you to add!
Just admit it
I'm a genius!
Why must you look so mad?
I shall tutor you
And make you smart
It's a simple art
Changed your mind?
I knew you would
You can't stay mad at me
It's simply impossible
Like eating a tree
Well, like I said
I am superior to you
Ah! Go cry at home!
Boo hoo hoo!
The people searched with fear of all kind, they looked high and low. Buster! Emily! Why aren't they answering their family? The people loved and took care of them. No dog can speak. The mother and daughter cry, the father sighs, and the little brother, he asks,"Why?" They search. No dogs to be found. Not one hair from the furry hounds. Hoot! Hoot! A nearby owl calls out. The people whine. But Emily and Buster jump up on top of the family. Knocking them down and wiping away their frowns.
The phone rings. But no one wants to answer the call. They sit on the couch in fear. No one answers the call that no one wants to hear. As if the phone understands, it ceases to ring. The family sits longer, as if this was all a trick. As if lasers would start shooting. They went back to what they were doing. Then the phone rang, but before anyone could stop the youngest daughter, she picked up the phone. Now in flames.
I am the Moon
You are the Sun
I bring Romance
So I guess you bring Fun
We are mostly different
Hardly ever the same
I am Beautiful
You are Hot
I am a Star
And you are Not!
Tell me please
Why are you so blue
Are you sad?
Do you have the flu?
Honestly, I don't have a clue!
Why won't you talk?
Does the cat have your tongue too?
Oh my gosh!
What do I do?
Now you're purple!
What CAN I do?
I'll let your GIRLFRIEND take care of you!
I feel inspired tonight
I'm going to sit and write
About all the things
Anything at all that rings
Things that were in my head all day
I finally get them out today
The more my inspiration grows
The longer my poem flows
As the words fly off the page
Like bits and pieces of sage
They leave my mind
And enter your brain
Like a rainbow after rain
And if you don't like my poems
Then you can go find some gnomes
Tell them how desperate you are
To be a poetry superstar
Where's your sense of humor?
What? Do you have an Anti-Funny tumor?
If you've got a problem with me
Take it up with little T!
Who said clothes don't make the man?
Oh yes, they do!
They most certainly can!
If clothes don't make the man,
Then explain how suits make the taxman!
How do they make the grocer on duty?
How do they turn the beast into a beauty?
How do they transform a shark
Into a work of art?
Clothes do wonderful things!
Like turn you into a queen
They can turn a prince into a pauper
Or a cricket into a grasshopper!
You'll never know
How far a pair of pants will go
Inside a world with many things
You can become almost anything!
Winter is in the air,
Turkeys are everywhere.
Leaves are changing colors,
Falling off the trees.
Falling like a path,
A path made just for me.
As I skip to my home,
With the smell of baked turkey in the air,
Stuffing,turkey,eggs and more,
We have a feast with food galore!
I am off of school,
My father is off from work,
And my mother is being a fabulous cook!
It's a gathering of family and friends,
Which means the fun never ends!
And when the day is done, and we all go home,
I think of what my mother just told me,
And just as my mother told me before,
We have much to be thankful for.
I watch the trees,
The trees swaying in the breeze.
As you my darling,
Sit along with me.
We lay gently in the pasture,
On a hill of green,
Watching the sea of blue,
Pass before our eyes.
Oh, the day has almost gone by,
Oh, one more day, just one more day!
Is the time that has gone by,
And this, with you, I want to spend my time,
As you my darling, now leave my side.
Christmas time is near,
The new is year is here.
You can hear the jingle bells ring, With a special sort of ding, That makes you feel the joy and warmth, That Christmas brings to all. Santa is on his way, Riding in his sleigh, With all his reindeer friends, And Rudolph in the lead, All of them feeling the powerful need, To bring happieness to all the children of the world. The world is at its true happiest, The point where Christmas brings out the kindness, Hidden deep within us. So at this time of giving and friends, Let us remember how the lord, Gave us his one and only son. To save us, And to remind us that his love never ends.

Not in sight
Visible, I am to only me
Impossible to see
Sneaky and clever
Blind, you are to my presence
Leaving no traaces left behind
Elaborately and forever plotting
I shall tell
Really tell you
That you WILL be mine!
I shall remind you everyday
That you are so absolutely fine!
I will cover you with kisses
And smother you in my hugs!
You WILL be mine
My little love bug
Do you love me?
I hope you love me...
There's no way that you can't!
We will be together FOREVER
My darling eggplant
We will dance in the moonlight
And sing on Mars
I will follow you EVERYWHERE
With my fingers nesting lovingly in your hair!
Come join me!
Away we shall go!
Wait, hold up!
SHE'S not coming!
That chick's got to go!
Move off my man!
I won't tell you twice!
I think your amber locks would look lovely...
With a bit of LICE!
Now that she's gone...
Forever, out of the way...
You will propose to me by moonlight!
We will kiss by moonlight!
We shall talk of our future by moonlight
For tonight is MY night!
As are the rest of yours...
