I Wish Poem

I wish I had a longer summer break.

I wish I had a less annoying sister.

I wish I had a lot of money.

I wish I had no school at all.

I wish I had a fancy lunch and dinner.

I wish I had a worldwide vacation.

I wish I had a less hectic life.

I wish I had a magic wand

to make all my wishes

come true.

Ballad- Springtime

The bluebird sings, sweet harmony

the first good sign of spring

She feeds her babies oh so well

there's so much food to bring!


All flowers bloom so big and tall

the bees come to get food

They flee around like startled cats

for sure in a good mood


It starts to rain so heavily

the trees all start to blow

They wave their limbs and start to dance

to put on a big show


By now my friend, the end is near

there's nothing else to see

We wait so long to see the spring

but I'll be at the beach

Shattered Images

How can a person deal with this much pain?

I feel like I'm going to burst, go insane

What is the point of all this laughter?

Is it all just a game?


Do they know what it feels like to be alone or left out?

They don't care what I think, they'll just scream and shout

Is this "task" they're doing meant to be fun?

Cause' if it is, I'm totally done!


Why don't you live my life and experience something real

not be fake, and actually care about how other people feel


All along I've been broken down

by these shattered images

Why do I always feel out of place?

Will my life be ruined by these shattered images?

Or one day, will I stand up to them face to face.


My fear of these images will pull me through

the tough times when I don't know what to do

Being put down is an everyday thing

and I always feel the pain they bring


The pain they bring and me feeling out of place

is all part of the game they're playing, getting to the finish line

Wanting to win their race.


All along I've been broken down

by these shattered images

Why do I always feel out of place?

Will my life be ruined by these shattered images?

Or one day, will I stand up to them face to face.
