fly Bird.

dark black feathers

swooshing across the ground

like midnight ink

dreams flying through the town

low across the building rooftops

rising under the sun

shadows cast upon the

bumpy cobblestone roads

people stare at your beauty and

ease of flight

oh take me with you

to that place you go

each night in your dreams

for i

like you

am stuck within these walls

too weak to jump

too small to fly high enough

i dream the dreams you dream

you and i are the same

we are trapped

so alone

but together

we can fly high enough

to get out of this place

because there is a better life

for me

and you

together we can fly away

high above the walls

that cage us in

because there is a better life

out there

for you

and for me 

let us lift our wings and fly Bird.

Week Numero trece

Hello my people! And thank you for this warm welcome back into the land of the living!! I had an AP English exam today that absolutely killed my hand, and my brain no less. Anyway we must begin our quest into the land of poetry.

Lets start with the “ABC’s” one. As I’m sure you can tell, it was part two of a larger poem at work. Basically the entire poem is about the inner workings of a gang, just with alliteration and wordy words. I super love this poem. Probably because I worked so hard on it, I mean I started the first half of it last year around this time. Granted I wasn’t working the whole time on the poem but I think you get the jist of what I’m saying. I have nothing else to say, I just love that poem. (Oh, there’s this poetry contest, think I should submit it??)

And we shall venture onward in our quest to poetry. So the epic isn’t actually that bad. I really wasn’t sure where to go next, and it’s an epic so it has to be long and awesome and I just wasn’t sure about anything. I think that the Anshar lady, who is actually the Egyptian goddess of the sky, was kinda weird. I got the idea from someone to do a hero-thing so I thought I need a god in here. So I put a goddess in there, because women, and it didn’t turn out how I wanted it to. After conspiring with my poetry bud, we decided that Mother Nature would totally be kick ass. So next week I’m going to be doing some revising and put some more mama in there.

So far so good this week 🙂 I haven’t gotten sick yet so that’s awesome for me. (I get sick a lot; like every weekend no joke.) So “yay meeeeeeeeeee!!” See you people next week, don’t miss me too much 😉
