Life isn't about surviving the storm, it's about learning to dance in the rain.


Where do words go when they get erased?
Do they go to some secret and faraway place?
Or go into your eraser- is that what they do?
Waiting patiently there to be born anew?
Do they climb up your body, and back into your brain?
Do they just fall off of your paper, with patters like rain?
Do they hide under desks, make homes under chairs,
Do they sneak into your clothes through your rips and tears?
Do they fly into the sky, float off all about,
Til they find a new pencil from which to come out?
Are they stored by some person, in boxes, on shelves?
Well I guess we’ll never know,
Until that day comes,
When we get erased ourselves.

"Seven days without a horse makes one weak."
"The worst part of riding is when you dismount."

Insult my clothes, I say, “Okay, thanks for the compliment.”
Insult the way I look, I say, “Thanks for notifying me.”
Mock me and say riding isn’t a sport, and I’ll say,”You say that ’cause you can’t ride.” But before you make fun of my horse, make sure you have “911″ on your speed dial.

That was amazing!! Keep writing :D

I'm a loser and I love to lose. Each time I lose its different, it teaches me something else... but winning loses its glamour after the first few times. so I love to lose

its a great poem. I think half of the best stuff i wrote was when i was young but then i lost it lol. great job
