Your World

Poem by: Georgia Douglas Johnson Page by: Tori Salley

Your World

Your world is as big as you make it.

I know, for I used to abide

In the narrowest nest in a corner,

My wings pressing close to my side.

But I sighted the distant horizon

Where the skyline encircled the sea

And I throbbed with a burning desire

To travel this immensity.

I battered the cordons around me

And cradled my wings on the breeze,

Then soared to the uttermost reaches

With rapture, with power, with ease!

Poem In My Own Words



Life is only what you make it. The poet saw life as unfair and scary and chose to be introverted. She then decided to make her own happiness. She finally succeeded in life because she believed in herself and looked on the bright side.


I chose this poem because it connected with me. Most days are spent waiting on better days. I believe we should make every day as good as we can because you never know when your last day will come. Sometimes you have to make your own happiness.

"Life's What You Make It" By: Hannah Montana


Don't let no small frustration

Ever bring you down

No no no no

Just take a situation

And turn it all around


With a new attitude everything can change

Make it how you want it to be

Stayin' mad, why do that?

Give yourself a break

Laugh about it and you'll see


Life's what you make it

So let's make it rock

Life's what you make it

So come on come on (everybody now)


Why be sad, broken hearted?

Theres so much to do

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Life is hard or

It's a party

The choice is up to you


With a new attitude everything can change

Make it how you want it to be

Stayin' sad, why do that?

Give yourself a break

I know you wanna party with me


Life's what you make it

So let's make it rock

Life's what you make it

So come on come on


Lets celebrate it

Join in everyone

You decide

'Cause life's...what you make it


Things are looking up

Any time you want

All you gotta do is realize that

It's under your control

So let the good times rock and roll


Ow!

Da da da do it now

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah

OW!

Alright

Yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah


Life's what you make it

So let's make it rock

(let's make it rock)

Life's what you make it

So come on come on (everybody now)

Let's celebrate it

Join in everyone

You decide

'Cause life's...what you make it

Life is what you make it



I chose this song because it explains the poem in a very simple form. The poem is telling us to make the most of life. The song by Hannah Montana reiterates that you have to do what makes you happy in life. It ties the general idea of making your life count together.

Original poem

Take Control


Running as far as you can just because you can.

Saying what you want when you want just because you can.

Wearing what you want just because you can.

You don't realize you can because society tells you, you can't.

The voices that tell you you can't are wrong.

The people who give you doubts are wrong.

You control what you do, what you say, what you wear

It's your world

Take control
