Living ~ A Poem

We’ve got this

great big earth

right in front of our eyes,

with wide open lands

and beautiful blue skies

 

We have this 

wonderful universe

right within our touch,

so many people,

so many stories,

what did we do

to deserve so much?

So let’s

open the door,

Let’s be free

and explore

There’s a

whole new world

out there,

with little treasures

so exquisite and rare

Let’s make the best

out of this beauty 

we’ve been given,

Let’s dream big

and let’s start living

♥♥♥

Hey Dreamers! I hope you enjoyed this post! All the pictures are just some old pictures that I’ve taken over time. I had already picked the pictures before, and when I sat down to write something around the pictures, the poem just kind of flowed out of me. I really enjoyed writing the poem, and I hope it inspires you.

Good Times ~ A Poem

Good times come,

Good times go,

I should’ve learned

there’s always an end

to the show,

It went by so fast,

all those beautiful moments,

all left in the past,

should’ve known this wouldn’t last

 

Amazing people,

who helped me go far,

lifted me up,

helped me reach the stars

When I was broken,

they put my pieces back together,

Stood beside me,

no matter the weather

 

Beautiful memories,

that will always stay

in my heart,

where they’ll never fade to gray

 

Laughter and smiles,

that were all worthwhile,

on the right road,

we could drive for miles

 

River of tears,

and things that went

wrong,

we felt weak,

but it made us

strong

 

When we began,

we had no clue,

but we climbed mountains,

and found a gorgeous view

Oh, look how we’ve grown!

something so wonderful,

who would’ve known?

 

Good times come,

Good times go,

It’s been a long time,

but it feels like it was just

a day ago,

when we embarked on this journey

of new experiences

and learning,

We laughed, We cried,

We never gave up

and we always tried

The time has gone,

however,

We’ll treasure these memories

forever


Hey Dreamers! I hope you liked that poem. It’s probably one of my favorite poems that I’ve ever written because it’s really close to my heart.

   My last day of 7th grade was on Tuesday, and I was kind of sad about it. 7th grade was an amazing year for me. It was like I had a breakthrough. I had amazing teachers and amazing friends and I did amazing things. I grew so much, in so many different ways, I felt like I found a new part of myself. And the thing that really stands out to me isn’t something that I won, or accomplished. The thing that stands out to me, is that I was happy. I enjoyed myself every single day, I laughed every single day and that was the best feeling ever. I can say with utmost confidence that 7th grade was one of the best years of my life.

It’s true what they say, you have to enjoy every moment of your life, because those beautiful moments won’t come again.

Who You Are ~ A Poem

Stick-thin bodies,

and long blonde hair,

a face full of make up,

pretending that you care

 

Uncomfortable dresses,

and too-tight shoes,

Beauty is pain,

What’s there to lose?

 

Society will tell you,

this is who you need to be,

this is what you need to do

to be beautiful and pretty

 

But I’m here to tell you,

that society is wrong,

because,

those freckles scattered

across your face,

and those hidden,

tiny scars,

Your faded shirt,

and messed up hair,

make you who you are

 

So,

when you look at yourself,

in the mirror everyday,

don’t listen

to what they say,

because you are beautiful,

and you are pretty,

and you are

who you are

♥♥♥

Hey Dreamers! I wrote this poem yesterday, and I really wanted to share it with you. This is something I strongly believe in and it’s a topic that’s really close to my heart, so I hope you liked it!

 

Voices In My Head ~ A Poem

At night as I lie in bed,

fifty thousand voices in my head,

telling me that my dreams

will never come true

Asking,

“What has happened to you?”

But the tiny voice 

in my heart

assures me

She says,

“You are strong, and you are smart.

if it goes wrong you can 

always restart.

Now, go to bed my child,

fall asleep

and let your dreams run wild.”

♥♥♥

Hey Dreamers! I hope you liked that poem. I didn’t have any ideas for what to post, so I just decided to post a poem I wrote a few weeks ago.  I was in a poetry block for a while and writing my last post really helped me come out of that. So if you’re ever in a creative block, just force yourself to sit down and create something. I promise, it helps. I hope you enjoyed this post and have a nice day!

The Change Award

Hey Dreamers! Today’s post is going to be a rare one! It’s a tag/award! I’ve been nominated a couple times for different awards and it’s not that I don’t like doing awards, I just never get around to doing them. So today, I chose to do the Change Award! I think the message of this award is really important,, so let’s begin:

This award was created by the lovely Gracie. Thank you to Emily and Mukta for nominating me.

that history never fades

and we express emotions

with words and not blades

I hope

that giving

becomes the way of living

for everyone under the sun

that we learn to care

for every single creature,

and appreciate every tiny feature

of this world

to embrace

one and all

through every

rise and fall

Christmas Season ~ A Poem

Christmas lights twinkle,

in the small town streets

In the kind of weather,

nothing can beat

Flurries of snow,

Oh, I know!

How, so very nice,

Why can’t this season 

come twice?

The season of giving,

This should be the

way of living

With family and friends,

Love that never ends

Feminism and Being a “Girly” Girl

Hey Dreamers! Sorry, I haven’t been able to post. I’ve just been really caught up in NaNoWriMo and school and other things. Anyways, this post is about something I’ve been thinking of. A few days ago I thought to myself: Am I really a feminist? 

Who is a feminist? A feminist is someone who fights for women’s rights. Am I really a feminist? I’m not strong and athletic. I’m not super-smart. I’m not the kind of girl that proves stereotypes wrong and breaks barriers. In fact I’m a pretty stereotypical girl: quiet, loves to do art, calm, spends most of her time indoors, doesn’t like sports, I collect jewelry. I even kind of like dressing up and doing fun hairstyles for occasions. I am a “girly” girl. Am I a feminist? I hope I can be.

In most books, the mean girl is always “girly”. She likes to dress up, she’s dumb, she’s vain, loves the color pink. They show that being “girly”, is a weakness. If I like to dress up, it doesn’t mean that I only care about how I look, or that I’m vain or dumb. In most books, the “strong” girl is almost always : athletic, really good at sports, hates the color pink, likes being outdoors, smart. I think a girl can be “girly” and strong. Most books and movies fail to portray characters that are strong and “girly”. Being girly shouldn’t be something bad. I’ve met some girls who say that they hate pink because it’s so girly. They say they hate shopping or they hate dresses because they think that by hating “girly” things, they’re proving stereotypes wrong and being feminists. But, aren’t feminists supposed to be showing everyone that they should embrace all girls for who they are? I’m sick of girly girls being shown as mean or weak. Being strong doesn’t always mean being physically strong.  What about being strong on the inside? All girls are strong on the inside. I want all girls to be portrayed strong in both ways.

I’m not saying that being a tomboy is a bad thing. It’s an amazing thing. But I feel like this is something that isn’t said a lot and I want to put it out there. I hope you think about this and I hope that from now on girly girls are shown to their full potentials. Remember: being girly is NOT a bad thing and it is NOT a weakness. It can also be a strength. Everyone is unique.

Just because I’m girly,

It doesn’t mean that I love pink

Just because I like jewelry,

doesn’t mean that I’m vain

Just because I like to dress up,

It doesn’t mean that I only care about how I look

Just because I’m not athletic,

doesn’t mean that I’m not strong

Just because I’m not outspoken,

doesn’t mean I can’t be a feminist

I am “girly”

but I’m also strong

And this who I am.

I hope you guys liked this post.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you a girly girl, tomboy or both?

Tell me in the comments.

Bye!
