Dancing

In the hush of the night there was a beautiful sight

A big black Babaloo dancing in the moonlight
She was hopping and skipping and jumping with glee

Until she saw something up in the tree
It was a Elaquail 

And you know what they say, 

An elaquail will sting you any time, any day.
It zipped through the night, a stinger on its butt

And it hit the Babaloo right in the gut.
“OW!” she cried, “What was that for?”

The elaquail laughed and went off to explore.
This made the Babaloo sad, so there she sat

Feeling bad about herself all because of some little gnat.
The sound of footsteps emerged from a tree

It was boy named Matt who was no more than three
He grabbed the Babaloos hand 

He might have been tiny, but the gesture was grand
The Babaloo was happy

She had made a friend

I Know You

When I say, “you look familiar”

You have no idea what I mean

I know you very well
I see you clear as day in a life that is no longer mine

A past life some may say

Every time I dream, I see where we once were

I see us as best friends.
You are like a walking deja vu moment 

Dreamy and surreal 

I just wish you remembered how we used to be

How we were before we were reborn. 
I’m glad we are best friends 

And i hope we will be friends forever 

In this life, and many more to come afterwards
Because I can’t imagine a world without you in it.

You and I and The Sky

I was looking at the stars 
So were you.

The crickets were fiddling 
The fire was crackling 
And the fireflies were stunning
But all of this was nothing compared to what was above 

We weren’t looking at each other 
But somehow, I could see you clearer than ever 
Our gaze truly met for the first time in the stars

I felt vulnerable
It was lovely. 
The universe above was a mirror 
And I liked what I saw in its reflection

I was scared of how much I adored it
Every single wall I had ever put up had been obliterated 
It was just you and I and the sky

Then we looked down
We looked at each other
Both a little uncertain 

Your eyes were brighter than any star 
Radiant 
That was when I knew
Life would never be the same 
I had discovered something grand. 

I didn’t know what was next 
I didn’t understand what I was feeling

Be Gone Sun!


Alright. If you have ever been in a car before, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Have you ever been driving along on a beautifully sunny day, when suddenly, the sun comes out from behind the trees and is right in your eyes! You are temporarily blinded by the bright light and have to feel around the roof of the car for your mirror/ sun blocker so you can block out the overwhelming glare of the sun. This works for a while but when your car changes direction, you have to repeat that same process all over again.

LEGOS

 If I could break any world record, I would break the one for walking across a bunch of LEGOs. This may seem like a weird one to most people but to me it makes perfect sense. Most say that stepping on a LEGO is the most painful feeling in the world, but I wouldn’t know. I have never stepped down upon the pointy plastic corners of this toy building block. In fact, I never even had LEGOs as a kid. When I tell my friends this, they say that “I had no childhood” and “what did you even do for fun?” Therefore I feel like I should make up for lost time and step across a huge path of them. Since I have never felt this “extreme” pain before, it will probably break me mentally and physically. But that’s okay! I would be honored to break an important record like this one.

You Have No Idea


The earth seems dull compared to the kaleidoscope of color I see To the warmth i feel
To the incredibly pleasant breeze
And you have no idea.
You are my end of the rainbow
The very thing I’ve dreamt to look upon
I was scared of what it would look like.
What if it wasn’t all I had hoped for
But right now
I know for certain
My end of the rainbow is standing right in front of me
Some people see a rainbow
And never find the end
But maybe we’re just two lost souls floating among the stars
Who see each other like it's the first time When our true colors meet the ground.
I hope i'm your end of the rainbow
Like you are to me
I hope I make you feel the colors I feel
I hope you won’t rain upon my rainbow vision But I am doing too much hoping
I should probably tell you all this
Tell you how I feel.
But for now,
Your my end of the rainbow
But I’m blocking your vision with clouds.

Treat Yourself

I am the one who works hard every day. I work hard for myself, and for opportunities I could receive in the future. I play sports, I do art, I act, I am a straight A student, and if I’m being honest… It can be hard to maintain a happy life when you get stuck in the daily grind. I want to use this piece of writing to remind myself, and anyone else for that matter, that it is alright to take a break. Life as a high schooler is incredibly stressful. From stacks of homework, too lovely high school politics (complete sarcasm by the way). Even though it is important to not let all of this rubbish get to you, it can affect your mental health. Sometimes, it is the most important thing for your sanity to take a break from it all. Take a day off from school once in a while and treat yourself. Just relax a little bit and take a load off. Because as important school is, you are way more valuable. So future self, and anyone else who is reading this and needs a healthy reminder, remember this.

The Human Goat

 My cheeks are hot and it feels like my head is going to explode. My sister is eating my clothes… again! No matter how many times my parents scold her, she still does it. I have had to lock my clothes away in a vault and she somehow finds a way to get in and eat my clothes like some sort of two legged goat! I’m gonna go get some of her clothes to get her back... to get revenge for eating my favorite shirt. As I’m storming out of the room, my conscience gets a hold of me. I start taking deep breaths and counting to 10 over and over again. After careful thought I have calmed down and have decided that I don’t want to eat my sisters clothes anymore. At least I’ll have a chance to buy some new clothes. And maybe it’s partially my fault. I should get a bigger and better vault so she can’t get to my clothes in the first place.
