Tonight I found a bunch of old poems I made during English class in the ninth grade. I decided I’d share a few. After all these years, I’m still proud of them lol.

Rose petals falling
Start blooming in the darkness
A deafening silence

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tiger prowls the prey
Lurking behind the bushes
The prey runs away

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The winter snow falls
The snowflakes are drifting down
On the innocent

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The leaves show new bloom
Summer erupts through the sky
Beginning of new

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Spring brings back the bell
To bring with a new school year
The students arrive

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pelting on the hair
Of people who are caught up
In the new rain

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am a daydreamer and a reader
I wonder why we walk the Earth
I hear the shrill ring during the silence
I see a tiger growling through the halls
I want to see the pyramids of Giza
I am a daydreamer and a reader

I pretend that I’m a character out of one of my books
I feel the barrier between life and fantasy
I touch the clouds that float above the sky
I worry about the animals who are being extinct
I cry when I’m yelled at
I am a daydreamer and a reader

I understand the feeling of being overwhelmed with emotions
I say that it’s better to say too much than never to say what you need to say   (NOTE: I was obviously a huge John Mayer fan at this time lol)
I dream to explore the world with no bounds
I try to try hard and succeed in school
I hope that people and animals will be abused no more
I am a day dreamer and a reader

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Staring out my window
Gazing as the clouds roll by
I wonder why
Why does the sky turn different shades of blue?
Why does the sun hide from the moon?
Is it afraid to come out, and show its true colours?
Why do the stars shine brightly at night
But they shy away when the sun rises?
Why are people afraid of the dark?
Why am I afraid to die?
Wow, what a cloud…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hear the old maple leaves crunch under my feet
As I make my way to the flag pole
I let out a sigh of relaxation as the wind
It slowly drifts through my hair
I look up in awe as the
Flag laps like the waves of the sea
Through the open breeze
Canada, what a place
With its open spaces
And fresh air

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I see my reflection
In the fireworks
Pictures forming in the sky
Streams  of fire shooting into shape
Slowly fading by the moon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ode to Teddy Bear (NOTE: I’ve had this teddy bear since I was 2, and I still have it now lol)

O Teddy Bear, O Teddy Bear,
You comforted me whenever I cried
Your soft little paws soothing my tears
Your beady little eyes taking away my fears

We met when I was two
However I could not win you
I shed so many tears as I cried
I contemplated that mt chances have died

Yay, my father won you
I was so overjoyed
I squeezed you
And hugged you
Until I could no more

You sat by my pillow
Patiently waiting
As I got home from school
Your smile never fading

If I were ever to lose you,
I don’t know what I’d do
I’d cry a sea of tears
Until you cover up my fears

I’ll cherish you always
My little teddy bear
I’ll keep you forever
’til I pass you onto my own daughter fair
