Personality Personified

Everyone has different personality traits that are specific to them. Pick one personality trait and personify it. What would courage act like? What would desperation say? Try to make these attributes come to life. 
 

Words

Every single person on earth is the embodiment of a different word. How would a society like this function? What would you be?

Faulty Grenade; Girls' PoV of Timebomb by Nico Collins

Miserable,
Miserable,
But trying so hard to be perfect,
Leader of a cult that wants my head,
I didn't ask for this crown.
You mock me,
adding another crack to the glass,
It's getting harder and harder to not show my fangs.
You bite your tongue and roll your eyes,
I show you my claws and you retreat again.
Don't act so suprised, oh don't you know,
I'm a faulty grenade,
with a pin that's coming loose,
getting ready to go BOOM!
I'm stuck on top of a mountain of judgment,
I'm sick of trying to play nice,
Putting others down to regain my confidance,
I don't like it,
But,
to little to late,
Nobody offered their hand,
To help me up,
from this well.
Now you're cracking jokes about me,
I shoot you a look that silences you,
I laugh bitterly inside,
Nobody better mess with the wicked witch of depression.
Cracking, cracking,

Girl On Fire: A Hunger Games inspired song


I am the Girl on Fire,
Trust me I can feel the flames.
They call me the Mockingjay,
I won the Hunger Games.

With every cell of my being,
I try to forget,
the faces of the tributes,
now lying dead.

I have a list of names,
constantly running through my head.
Of all the people,
Thanks to me forever dead.

I am the Girl on Fire,
Trust me I can feel the flames.
They call me the Mockingjay,
I can't escape the Hunger Games.

I saw my sister go up in flames,
Old man from 11, they blew out his brains,
Will I forever have a list of names,
Of all the people I've condemned?

To everybody it seems,
I am just a piece,
A part of a game,
Can't rid myself of this legacy.

I am the Girl on Fire,
My name is Katniss Everdeen,
Only Gale calls me Catnip,
But we're no longer friends it seems.

My 2019, Year In Rap

2019 was a blast but let’s take a look into the past 

Turtles have been on the edge of an extinction 

Since the oceans have been full of pollution

But there’s a machine that came to a resolution 

Next, let’s talk about vaping, it leads to a disease that makes you cough nonstop just sayin

Everyone knows it’s bad but why do we still do it?

It’s just sad

The Amazon rainforest should be nicknamed Mariah cause it got all burned out and on fire to

much that our oxygen might retire 

The USA won the women’s world cup but we're still trying to dream up and with moves like 

#equalpay we’re on the come up 

In the southern USA, and in the DR there was a  

giant Hurricane that left us in pain

Its name was Dorien 

it became a historian 

Talkin bout history 

Notre Dame is burning 

Missing a touristic place

disappointment

before you listen, i hate my voice so much, and i'll tell you a little about what this song means to me. i wrote it after a friend of mine started ignoring be when i came out to them, which hurt a lot. i wrote it in bed late at night, crying, but only recorded it 7 months later. hope you enjoy, and please tell me what you honestly think.
also sorry for posting so much music, i can't really write so i'm making music instead :)

The apple tree

By Tessa Gordon, 12, Colchester, VT

Once there was a tree that wanted to travel the land
And see all the things that she doesn’t understand.
She wanted to look at all the flowers
And talk to the waves for hours and hours.
But she’s stuck in the ground on her big roots.
They keep her there with her blossoms and fruits.
She wants to break free, but she doesn’t know how.
She wants to break free and she wants to do it now.

But how do you break free?
How do you break free?
How do you break free?
When you're stuck in the ground as an apple tree.

Just right then a car pulled up 
It said, "Tree, get in, we’re gonna fix you up.
"We’ll turn you into something a kid could enjoy like a shiny brand new race car toy."
The tree thought that that was a great idea.
She had no worry, no, she had no fear.

The Apple Tree

There once was a tree that wanted to travel the land
And see all the things she doesn’t understand
She wanted to look at all the pretty flowers
And talk to the waves for hours and hours
But she’s stuck in the ground on her big roots they keep her there with her blossoms and fruits
She wants to break free but she doesn’t know how
She wants to break free and she wants to do it now
But how do you break free
How do you break free
How do you break free
When you stuck in the ground as an apple tree
Just right then a car pulled up 
It said tree get in we’re gonna we’re gonna fix you up
We’ll turn you into something a kid could enjoy like a shiny brand new race car toy
The tree thought that that was a great idea
She had no worry no she had no fear
She would race around the world and give everyone smile
Being turned into something new would be all worth while
I’m going to break free
