Favorite Quote:
I think people forget that humans are animals too.

Gravity confines me to this Earthly prison,
Leaving the universe to only my mere vision.
The sky tempts me, with each cloud calling my name,
If only I could fly, my world will never be the same.
I'd lie upon each soft gentle cloud and embrace it like a pillow,
Allowing the sun to shine upon me, caressing my delusional halo.
But the sky and the clouds would not be my limit,
I'd fly above and beyond to a heavenly summit,
And the world will no longer seem so vast,
As I would fly away to hold it within my grasp.
I'd be around the universe in the blink of an eye,
With gravity no longer holding me down to stare into the sky.
I'd fly away from the worries that gravity confines me to,
No longer would I be stuck within life's cell, left to think "what will I be, what will I do?"
For the universe's beauty will distract my mind,
And my meaning of life will no longer be left to find.
I'd break free from the bars of this Earthly prison,
Where the universe will embrace more than just my vision.

"It makes me happy when I see teenage girls who clearly don't fit in, gives me hope that the future might still have personality" - Haley Williams

“You are not your bra-size, nor are you the width of your waist, nor are you the slenderness of your calves. You are not your hair color, your skin color, nor are you a shade of lipstick. Your shoe-size is of no consequence. You are not defined by the amount of attention you get from males, females, or any combination thereof. You are not the number of sit-ups you can do, nor are you the number of calories in a day. You are not your mustache. You are not the hair on your legs. You are not a little red dress. You are no amalgam of these things. You are the content of your character. You are the ambitions that drive you. You are the goals that you set. You are the things that you laugh at and the words that you say. You are the thoughts you think and the things you wonder. You are beautiful and desirable not for the clique you attend, but for the spark of life within you that compels you to make your life a full and meaningful one. You are beautiful not for the shape of the vessel, but for the volume of the soul it carries.”

I love this poem! it was great how you took something that almost every kid dreams about at some point and turned it into a philisophical and poetic topic. the imagery and the repetition in the first and last lines were awesome.
