Poem #2 – Petrified

Petrified

Paralyzed or minimized
Can’t do anything
Still in shock

PetriFIED, PETRIFIED!

This is when you would be
PETRIFIED:

Fall off a cliff
PETRIFIED!
Kick a dog
PETRIFIED!
Working on a sculpture
and it falls
PETRIFIED!

See a spider
PETRIFIED!
Cut your thumb
PETRIFIED!
Get sucked into a tornado
PETRIFIED!

Crash a car
PETRIFIED!
Burn your house
PETRIFIED!
Go into a lake with
no swimming knowledge
PETRIFIED!

Have stage-fright and go on a stage
PETRIFIED!
Get sighted by a shark
PETRIFIED!
Find out your bed is full of ants
PETRIFIED!

Get stuck in the snow
PETRIFIED!
Listen to Justin Bieber
PETRIFIED!
You’re in a mall
and your pants fall down
PETRIFIED!

Eat a worm
PETRIFIED!
Get mauled by a bear
PETRIFIED!
Fart in your girlfriend’s face
PETRIFIED!

Get stuck in a toilet
PETRIFIED!
Beat a hyena
PETRIFIED!
Get locked into a girl’s bathroom (Aaahh!)
PETRIFIED!
P-E-T-R-I-F-the rest
PETRIFIED!!

Poem #1 – Love

Love

Love is like a snowflake in the cool winter, it is so different you will never find anything like it.

Love can come and go before you even blink.

but it’s the most beautiful thing while it lasts, the taste of love is bitter and sweet.

Sometimes it comes and goes, sometimes it never leaves.

Love can be turned into the most beautiful things ever.

Sometimes something comes and destroys love,sometimes it never lets it start.

Some want it to stay forever,even though we all know that everything has to go in due time.

So be happy and joyful for love,because when you are in love nothing can touch you.

Love puts you out of harms reach.Love makes you feel better when you are upset, hurt, sick, or disappointed.

Love helps you up when you are down,keeps you from getting weak,and it changes the way you look at life.

Love shows that no matter what happens,there are always more snowflakes in the air.

So never stop searching,when one melts go find a new one.

Never lose your hope in love.

Why does love have to come and go?

Is it because it is like joining the crowd of other snowflakes,or is it because we are too selfish to share the last gleaming snowflake with others?

When people are in love their hearts should connect,not just one heart try to connect to the other.

Some say love is like a dove, but how so?

Doves come and go but snowflakes,can stay all winter and no one will ever notice.

A snowflake can take many different forms for no two snowflakes are alike.

love takes different forms in everyone’s heart.

Have any of you read Divergent? I really liked the book! I would recomend this book to people who don’t like to put a book down, and like books sort of like the Hunger Games!

“Catching Fire” by dancer4life

Catching Fire is a heart racing book. You will never want to put it down! It is action, adventure, and romance book series. You should start on The Hunger Games than read Catching Fire. It end in a cliffhanger so you will want to read Mocking Jay. I have a big sister two and I know she would volunteer for me.
