Your World

By Georgia Douglas Johnson

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!

Main Idea

In this poem it compares life and a bird. It tells that we sometimes can be scared to do things in life. However once you find what your heart desires, you start to break out of your shell. You get to spread your wings and do whatever it takes to reach that goal.

Why I Chose This Poem

Once I read this poem I knew it was the one. It really connects with my life in many ways. One of the reasons is that i was always terrified of the world and growing up, but now I see the world in a whole new way. My world is an empty canvas, and i am the artist.

Firework by Katy Perry



Do you ever feel
Like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again

Do you ever feel
Feel so paper-thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel
Already buried deep
Six feet under
Screams but no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's
Still a chance for you
'Cause there's a spark in you
You just gotta

Ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on show them what you're worth
Make them go, "Oh, oh, oh"
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go, "Oh, oh, oh"
You're gonna leave them all in awe

You don't have to feel
Like a waste of space
You're original
Cannot be replaced

If you only knew
What the future holds
After a hurricane
Comes a rainbow

Maybe the reason why
All the doors are closed
So you could open one
That leads you to the perfect road

Like a lightning bolt
Your heart will glow
And when it's time you know
You just gotta

Ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on show them what you're worth
Make them go, "Oh, oh, oh"
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go, "Oh, oh, oh"
You're gonna leave them all in awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on show them what you're worth
Make them go, "Oh, oh, oh"
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make them go, "Oh, oh, oh"
You're gonna leave them all in awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

Connection

Your World and Firework are very intertwined in various ways. Both show that you are worth so much, but you have to break through and live life to the fullest. Also it demonstrates that you can not care what the world thinks about you. It is your world and you make of it have you want to.

In Control

"You can't, Don't try, Give up"

Those words on repeat like a scratched record.

Hearing them nonstop my mind becomes corrupt.

But I keep going the flag is near and checkered.


Like a phoenix I rise when I am down

I see my goal and it is near

I chose the right path with my feet on the ground

My mind is going strong and becoming clear


It is my world and i don't need opinions

I will live and succeed my goals

I am me not one of the world's minions

My life is like a plane and I have the controls.
