Two Worlds by Alana Moore
Each person has two sides to them
The dark side and the happy side
The dark side you want to hide
While the happy side you want to display
To show you're not in dismay
No matter what people say
You know that at the end of the day
That you live life your way
You live life day by day
Even when it's grey
You know in a way
If you chose not to hide away
Good things will come your way
And if you chose to stay
It will never go away
Even on rainy days
As Time Passes By By Austin Dobbins
Many people will come and go,
Much like the beauty of a winter snow.
Like sunshine falling on the trees,
And autumn leaves blowing through the breeze.
Like springtime flowers blooming through the rocks,
And a lake in the summer splashing on the docks.
Many people will come and go,
And from them we will learn and grow.
With the passing of time we make new friends,
And many will leave before our ends.
As they get close and you are all amused,
Many discover they had just been used.
Some people are mad,
And many are sad
But because of these people you don’t need to cry,
For we will all make true friends as time passes by.
Private Beach by Haleigh Arledge
The beach is a wonderful, hot, tropical place.
White sand, blue oceans, green palm trees.
You get in the ocean, as the cold water splashes on your body you feel goose bumps form.
The taste of the salt water in your mouth, as is splashes upon your skin.
A place to get away and relax from the stress of the world.
The wind blowing as you get out of the water, the cool air wraps around you.
The hot sun steaming on the water on your body, drying the water.
The warmth of the sand between your toes.
As the wind blow you get a whiff of the salt in the ocean.
As you lay on the beach you hear the waves crashing on the shore.
You hear the waves being made off in this distance, the roaring sound.
Relaxing on the beach feeling stress free, not a worry in the world.
Much like the beach, music gives me the same peace and serenity.
Music blocks out everything from the world.
The beach is you and you only.
Music brings me much peace as much as the beach.
Nothings better than blocking out the world then being at the beach.
Cut by Gerald Darnell
The swish and sway of leaves,
Unnoticed in the car
where Young Thug and Future rule the aux,
The cut road taking another turn
Dry ridge and old railroad
Hitting cut 5 deep it’s a load
Hill after hill on repeat,
EVOL and Khalifa up next
Purple reign for the pain,
Each cut a risk
We don’t care though
Oh you put on meek?
Yeah we care, no.
Dark seas we the new Rockefellers
Stop sign coming ahead,
So we gone
As I reach the top all I can see is clouds
All I see around is white
Feels like I'm on a kite
As I reach the top the moon and the stars
Are up top when I reach it with my feet and hands
I catch a glimpse
I see the sun as it starts to go down
All alone you realize that life is lived day by day
Its not about how many breaths you take its about the moment
That takes your breath away
And the life you live because you don’t know when its gunna end
Because it all depends
When the end is on it way you have to brace for it and pray
Because today is a new day and tomorrow nothing
Will ever be the same
Because no body can always stay saine
Reflect by Drew Dahlman
Trees reflecting on water during a sunny afternoon,
I can taste the mountain air,
Fish in the water everywhere,
I can hear the birds calling,
CAtch me at my house balling,
Smelling all these mountains
All this lake needs is a fountain.
The water looks dirty
I wouldn’t go swimming in there
Theres some grass growing on the water
But it looks cool
Id rather swim in a clean pool
The grass is very bright
The sun is shining light
I need a bike
The birds stop calling at night
Reflecting back on life
Life is Changing
And I am growing
I'm not who I used to be
Just like the leaves
Sadness surrounds me
Darkness over whelms
Weakness over comes
But I will Flourish
It'll be Glorious
I just need to see you once
So we can get back to us
