Both Feel (Poem)

Pain unites us,

We both understand the feeling,

Depression unites us,

We both understand the feeling,

We both feel alone and don’t feel like us.

 

I have my struggles,

You have your struggles,

We both have struggles,

We’re both trying to overcome our struggles,

We’re both feeling like we’re alone in our struggles.

 

I don’t hear you,

You don’t hear me,

I don’t hear the positive words from you,

You don’t hear the positive words from me,

I only hear me and you only hear you.

 

We are similar in many ways,

We’re similar that we’re both fighters,

We both continue to find our ways,

Choosing to stay alive during our struggles makes us fighters,

So let’s believe that we’ll both find the solution even if we go our separate ways.

Snap, Clap, and Move (Poem)

Snap fingers to the right,

Snap fingers to the left,

Move your body with the snap to the right,

Move your body with the snap to the left,

Come on keep on moving to the left and right.

 

Clap your hands to the right,

Clap your hands to the left,

Move your body with the clap to the right,

Move your body with the clap to the left,

Come on keep on moving to the left and right.

 

Snap and clap to the right,

Snap and clap to the left,

Move your body with the snap and clap to the right,

Move your body with the snap and clap to the left,

Come on keep on moving to the left and right.

Start Dancing (Poem)

I’m walking,

I’m stopping,

I keep walking,

I keep stopping,

I wonder if I should start dancing.

 

Dancing makes me happy,

I keep walking towards the future,

I don’t always feel happy,

There’s so much worry for my future,

Perhaps I should dance towards my future to be happy.

 

When I dance my stress is let go,

When I sing I think of the lyrics and not the stressful thoughts,

I need to stop and dance before I go,

I need to stop the stressful thoughts,

Then I need to keep dancing as I go.

 

Break Me (Poem)

I was bullied,

What did I learn?

I learn that I can survive when I’m bullied,

It was a painful way to learn,

It truly hurts to get bullied.

 

I was emotionally abused by lovers,

What did I learn?

I learned that I can walk away from lovers,

It was a painful way to learn,

It truly hurts to get emotionally abused by lovers.

 

I was hit over and over,

What did I learn?

I learned that I certain hits don’t kill you when it’s over,

It was truly hard to learn,

I was glad it was over.

 

What did life teach me?

Emotional and physical abuse didn’t kill me,

I kept surviving even when others tried to break me,

Yes, I ended up crying over and over because of what kept happening to me,

Yet it’s my past that proves that “I won’t ever let anyone break me.”

Student vs. Student (Poem)

There's a student,
There's another student,
It's a student vs. student?
No, there's no vs. when it comes to a student,
‚ÄčIt's all about passing each student.

Don't have ONE favorite student,
Students shouldn't be there to feel another is smarter,
A proper education means all can be an "A" student,
It's the teacher's job to determine how ALL can become smarter,
So make it clear that they all have the ability to become a smart student.

Manipulator (Poem)

Suicide is a drug that gets so tempting,

A drug that says “I’ll end it all for you,”

In the hardships, it’s so tempting,

It calls and calls you,

It’s so hard to walk away when it’s so tempting.

 

Hard to see or hear the surroundings,

Too exhausted to see or listen,

Thus, I call suicide the best manipulator because it zones out your surroundings,

The manipulator tricks you and makes it hard to see or listen,

That’s why in the hardships you must work harder to see your surroundings.

 

If you listen, you might hear the answer that helps you overcome,

If you see, you might see the answer that helps you overcome,

The manipulator makes you believe you can’t overcome,

Your surroundings show you that can overcome,

Most of all, paying attention to your surroundings is also how you tell yourself you can overcome.

Please Life (Poem)

Please life I don’t want to say goodbye to you,

I’ll say goodbye to people,

I just don’t want to say goodbye to you,

I don’t want those people,

I want you.

 

Please life I don’t want to say goodbye to you,

I’m tired of the illness,

I’m not tired of you,

I’ll do my best to overcome this illness,

Please don’t make it so hard that I want to give up on you.

 

Please life I don’t want to say goodbye to you,

I’ll overcome this situation,

I just need to hold on to you,

I’ll hold on to you even if it’s so hard in this situation,

But please help me while I’m doing my best to hold on to you.
