Live Love Poetry

by Kylie Gary

intro

Kylie Gary was born in Greenville, NC, and is an intelligent, imaginative, and creative poet. she began writing poem in the 6th grade when inspiration struck her to write an amazing poem. She still writes poems today because she is always getting ideas from songs, life experience, and memories. These are six poems of her poems that inspired her.

Where I'm From

I am from knee pads,

from Nike and Under Armor.

I am from clean kitchen floors.

(slick, shiny, smooth to the touch).

I am from leaf pile in the back yard,

the dirty brown crunch

as if I would forget them.


I am from big dinners and thick brown hair,

from melody and Richard.

I am from the one-uppers

and the fall behinds.

from good job! And It’s ok!

With Christ as my guide and strength

And the ten commandments to follow.


I’m from Greenville and Alice’s care,

fried chicken and Mac and cheese.

From the swollen lip I got from clumsiness,

the finger my sister got smashed from stubbornness.


In my drawer a photo album

Cluttered and dark

Laughing and smiles on faces

Tear stains from loved ones

I am from those moments—

The ones you wouldn’t forget—

Another apple from a family tree.

Narrative Poem

Don’t Go!!

Beep—beep—beep!

The heart as steady as a drum.

Beats as hard as it can,

While it’s trying to hold on.

All we can do is hope,

Wishing for a miracle.

Beep—beep—beep!

As I sit on the edge of the bed

Thinking of “what if” moments

What if I was the one?

What if she didn’t get hit?

What if no one was in this situation.

Beep—beep—beep!

The doctor enters slowly,

With a face pale as snow.

“She doesn’t have much time left.”

As if we wanted to hear those words.

Beep—beep—beep!

The tears couldn’t be held back much longer.

Nothing more we could do.

“Please don’t leave mommy”

I beg her not to go.

“I don’t want you to leave us!”

Beep—beep—beep!

Her soft sweet sent was fading,

Half of her here, half somewhere else

Her life was slipping from our grasp.

As if she wanted to let go.

“Please mom, I don’t want to be alone.”

Beep—beep—beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!

Structure Poem

Bullies

Bullies are just so vicious. No caring for anyone but themselves. For what, just to make them-selves feel better? For their own problems. They feel as if it’s ‘okay’ for them to take it out on other people. Like no that is not ok for them to do that. Yeah they have problem and we should feel bad but they shouldn’t take it out on others. And their followers that just follow them for popularity and cool credits. Like whom do they think they are treating people like that especially girls. Girls a fragile and once you break us we are hard to fix. Like you can’t do that to us like why would you even think of that…. Like why….



BULLIES are just so vicious

_____________________No caring for anyone but themselves.

__________________________________________For what, just to make them-selves feel better?

FOR THEIR OWN PROBLEMS!

They feel as its ‘OKAY’ for them to take it out on other people.

LIKE NO... ____________That is not ok for them to do that.

Yeah they have problems and we should feel bad but they shouldn’t solve their problems on other people!

And their followers that just follow them for popularity and ‘cool credits.’

Like whim do you think you are for treating people like that…

Especially Girls!!!

Girls are fragile and once you break us we are hard to fix.

Like you can’t do that to us

LIKE WHY WOULD YOU EVEN THINK OF THAT?...

Like why?.....

ODE POEM

Lost boys

I never felt more alone

Lost and can’t find my way,

Maybe I just need to go away

Because no one needs me anyway.

I’m just a waste of their ‘precious’ space

Maybe I should to outer space,

Then I will be far away from my troubles

So they won’t hit me with rubbles.

I have no friends on earth

I have had none since birth,

Then… just then…

Someone came up to me,

Telling me things I’ve wanted to hear.

He said he could make my troubles vanish like thin air.

He said to me believe in all you do

You won’t be alone anymore

Because you can come with me

Away from all of this reality

Come with me to Neverland ,

For there we could be lost boys

Scavenging the island for amazing things.

Because Neverland is a place for lost boys

Lost boys like you and me.
