i have promise to keep and miles to go before i sleep- Robert Frost


The world is a tree
we are the leaves

Some of us are green
Some of us are red

Some of uschange colors
Others just stay the same all year

We gather on branches enjoying each other
Some are alone cause everyone blew away

Some are at the top and can see everything
Others are lower and can't see anything

We all fall off at some point

Some get carried by the breeze
Others get trampled on the ground

None of us know when or where we'll fall
We're just hopeing we go somewhere

I wrote this poem in history class while stareing at a tree outside. Watching the leaves fall and seeing the looks on my classmates's faces made me realize we're alot like the leaves. Who knows where we're going, we just want to go

You've gotta take the good with the bad, smile when you're sad, love what you got and remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget, learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong but always remember life goes on

That's a really good comparison! and really creative! and lol I write alot of my poems during class, too.
