Down Stream

170H

When they tremble
I tremble too. I wish I could help
give them a new meaning,

all twenty six letters line up, perfectly.
Who am I to rearrange them?

As they stand now forever they remain
cemented, together. A tight-knit family,
no comma, could break.

In my mind they are a block of ice
causing no harm floating down stream.

Why should I step on them and slip?

The pick-up and go is a feature I endeavor, but
I can only watch as letters come together
form words, curve into cursive flip around, turn
and maintain the same meaning.

It’s nothing to them, but
I’m too narrow-minded;
I wouldn’t dare
to attempt such change.

For now, I will look admire from a far
as they melt into water, drift into the current
and out toward the sea

Ignite the Sky

During the sun’s peak, I dare you, look to the sky.

Watch something majestic happen; it will leave you in awe. It’s like a change of a butterfly or how night turns back to day.

We’re all capable of it just get out side your comfort zone because you too can flourish and shimmer. Spread out your branches and be free like the leaves of fall.

Be grateful for your freedoms and never live as if your locked away without a key.

Don’t hibernate like winter make a change into fall.

What’s the worst that can happen?
A look of confusion, maybe a stare?

Strike a match and hold it up over your head. Watch as it dances swayed by the wind, inviting all to come and watch. Follow its movements, be spontaneous and bright.

Be like the bright fire above, the one in the sky, all you have to do is just open your eyes.

Reach for the Sky

Is life worth living without goals?

What is the point of waking up in the morning if you don’t go out into the world with a dream or task you want to do? Sometimes life goes by so fast; we don’t have time to achieve everything we set out to do.

There are people who are not born into the best family and don’t have everything that they ask for. Life isn’t handed to them, and they are one step behind the starting line. Those people dream of being normal, while normal people dream of  being in the upper class. It is a constant cycle of people trying to make it to the next level.

One thing that is equal for everyone in the world is the ability to go out, set a goal, and do everything in your power to meet it.

If life was so easy would there be a point to live it?

Life is the same for everyone, but people start at different points. In a way that is what makes life beautiful, but at the same time can tear it apart.

Many are handed money and fame without earning it and they usually take advantage of it. Others who strive to reach that level in their life usually appreciate the road it takes to get there. They make sure not to mess up their once in a lifetime chance. Even though there are still many people who abuse their status once they reach it.

When you wake up in the morning don’t roll out of bed thinking saying how your life will never change. Get out of bed with goals and dreams in mind. Let those dreams guide you and help you achieve happiness and satisfaction in your life. Never give up chasing your dreams no matter how much they try to outrun you.

“No one is born with a hand full of aces. No matter the hand you’re dealt there is always a chance to win.”

Flicker

A lonely light lingers
in a room full of darkness.

Sparks ignite,
she shimmers and glows,
she dances, drips down to the floor.

A breeze engulfs her.
She fights off the urge to stop.
She is the entertainment of the night,
the star of the show.

Eyes follow
up
and
down
her every twirl

without her

the world trembles in fear.
One blow,
she dances no more.

a lonely light lingers
in a room
full
of
darkness

Stay True to You

Money, looks and power. If you have any of these three, you are ahead of the game, well according to our society. We get so consumed in trying to get to the top and impressing others, we forget to take a stop and think. We forget to take a second and worry about the perception of ourselves instead of the perception of how others view us.

Preppy, punk, jock, nerd, emo are all common stereotypes that people fall into. It is done so easily too, if you go outside wearing nothing but black there are sure to be whispers about your appearance. I have seen it and I live it everyday.

Goldfish are so boring. Be a Bluefish

Appearance and style is such an important part of today’s society, we forget to remember that there is a person behind those clothes. There is a person with emotions, feeling and a heart. If someone wants to wear all black, all pink or yellow or whatever, they have the right to do so.

I disagree with a lot about clothing and fashion, but one thing it does is that it gives the ability to express yourself.

When expressing yourself, remember to act, dress and express yourself the way that YOU want to. Don’t do it because of attention, don’t do it because it will make you popular do it because it is truly you.

Don’t try to mimic what you see on television and on magazines, start your own trend and be your own person. Trends are started just for the sake of popularity. If you’re different, but you are being yourself it does not matter what anyone in the world thinks. As long as you are expressing yourself and are happy, who cares?

Be an individual, express yourself, be you.

Rain, Rain, Come and Stay

What would happened if it rained 24/7? I mean nothing but rainy day, after rainy day. It sounds like a pretty good Dr. Seuss idea, or maybe similar to the children’s book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Sure, rain everyday would not seem like the ideal weather for some, but maybe rain everyday would have a greater impact than one might think.

Hey, birds! Go back inside, it’s raining! Gosh!

Rain gives you the perfect excuse to stay inside all day and be lazy. No one wants to go outside when its raining, they rather sit home, do some work around the house and read a book that they never had the chance to read. See! Already one thing that has gotten done thanks to the benefit of rain. Now let’s think a little deeper into it. Since your home and snuggled up in your house, another benefit of this would be, no need to use your car. Since there is no need to use your car, you would save money on gas and going out and spending money!

Let’s go back to 1800’s, there has been many wars fought over land, power and greed. What would happen if, the day of the war there was a huge rainstorm. No one wants to go out in the middle of a huge rain storm to fight amongst each other, they would rather settle there conflict over a nice game of cards inside! Thanks to some rain, the whole history of America could have been rewritten, well kind of!

Now back to the 2000’s, rain not only forces you to stay indoors, but it keeps you off the streets and out of trouble as well. Instead of being out on the street, you are pretty much forced to stay at home. While at home you also have to the chance to spend some time with your family. There are many people who don’t have the time to spend a few hours a day with their loved ones. This is why rain is there to help!

As you can see, rain is pretty awesome. There are many reasons why it should rain a lot more often. I am still a big fan of snow though. I would’ve made this idea up about snow, but snow is so darn annoying to clean up. Anyway, I am sorry if I offended any lovers of the beach with this idea, but a little rain can go a long way!

One Life, One Chance

“Do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.” Those were the words spoken by Eminem in one of his most popular songs, Lose Yourself.

One life and one opportunity to be whatever you want to be. Each person is born with a blank page and the ability to write whatever they want on this page.

For some, they could take the page and write an award-winning novel. While others could take that same page and turn it into a paper airplane.

You can do whatever you want to do with your personal page. Life is whatever you want it to be, and you are the author of the story that you want to write.

What is the meaning of life. Sure, the word life is the dictionary with a definite meaning, but life is something that really can’t be defined. Life is the most cherished thing that you have and is something that many people take for granted every day. Life might not always be beautiful, but it is up to you to define your meaning of what life is. Some people sit back and wait for things to go their way. They have dreams but don’t have the willpower or the motivation to go out and carry out things that they want to do. Instead of sitting back and waiting, go out and make strides to reach those dreams. Sitting back and waiting is only going to delay you from reaching your goals.

Take a chance, reach for the stars.

Be lucky for the things you have and don’t live a life with any regrets. Take your shot and if you miss just take another. Just remember that you miss 100% of the shots that you never take. Don’t take life for granted and don’t dwell on the negative things that you go through. Just try to live life the way you want and don’t be influenced by anyone else.
