Not so Bad...

    Oh my gosh

    My face is red

    And i’m blushing like a maniac

    Did I really just have a video of me doing that

    Up on the board?

    Did I really ask for a solo in chorus?!

    Why me?

    Why did I have to be

    The first thing everybody in the whole


    See and hear in that video?

    Oh why did my teacher

    Have to wait until

    I walked in.

    He said he was waiting for me

    So he could play the video.


    You know…

    It wasn’t so bad…

    I mean it’s what I love


    I think I am fine now.

Any Creepers?


    Any monsters in the dark?

    Creepin’ and waiting

    For the perfect moment to pounce.

    I hear a creak and a skuffle.

    Tensing I pull my covers closer

    Over my small head.

    I wrap my body into a pretzel

    And hug myself.

    I squeeze my eyes shut

    I wait a minute and hear nothing else

    I peek an eye open and see it's bright 

    And sunny out now

    And I stretch out of bed

    To feel something wet touch my foot

    I choke my scream back down my throat 

    And I look down

    To see my dog sitting there

    With her nose smooshed up against my leg

    As a good morning gesture.

    And I smile realizing it was all in my head

    Once again.

The Mystery of Life


    Sometimes confuses me

    I sometimes wonder

    Why are my toes called toes?

    And fingers called fingers?

    That is the mystery of life

    I am not allowed to know those answers

    And never will be

    Life is a complete mystery.

    Confusing and amazing!

    Wonderful and frustrating.

    But I love life

    Just as I should.

poem 0 comments challenge: Silence

Silence is Beautiful


    Beauty is in the silence of the world.

    Silence is calm

    And smooth like water

    Silence is being alone

    Being alone in your silence is


    Silence is that 

cool ringing

    Silence is 

that smooth air

    Purity is silence.

Wishing Thoughts Away

I wish I could erase

    The worst memories

    I wish I could just

    Throw them away.

    I wish they would just

     For a while

    They disappear

    But then those thoughts

    They come back to haunt me

    All the things I have ever done wrong

    So I roll my eyes

    And try to wish them away.

    Wish them away forever.

     But if I did that

    There would be no space for learning

    Only messing up time and time again,
    And more wishing those thoughts away.

My Thoughts from French Class


    Some kid in my class

    Has a computer (Who is actually a person)

    Named Cat.

    (It's on life support.)

    It also speaks Japanese.

    Also also my friend Molly is now a robot.

    Also also also my friend Aleekeah is now a dinosaur.

    Also also also also my french teacher

    Is a dragon.

    We all scream and laugh

    And speak french.

    We named the smart board dog. (After the chromebook cat)

    Baby chicks go 


    Hey, hey, hey,

    Catrina is a

    Bad kangaroo.

    She does not know

    She is a kangaroo.

Hot Chocolate & Potatoes


    What is this?

    How much milk does she have?

    I don’t know.

    What’s the ratio

    Of milk to chocolate powder for her hot chocolate?


    Got the answer!

    Okay now…


    Will he finish in time?

    He only has an hour and ten minutes left

    To peel all these potatoes?

    He has sixty potatoes left!

    Oh you guys did NOT

    Give him enough time to peel all those potatoes.


    I officially know.

    Math is WEIRD!

That girl

There is always That Girl
That pretty girl
That smart girl
That white girl.
The girl who supports
But is not a part of it
The girl who supports
But is not a part of it
There is always that girl
Who is popular
But some don't know her name
There is always that girl
Who everybody knows
But not everyone likes.
I am that girl.
I am the pretty, smart, white girl.
I am the one who supports
But does not belong
I am the one who is popular
But some don't know my name
I am the one who everybody knows
But not everyone likes.
And I am
To be ME!
