Since it was winter,
It was cold.
Since it was cold,
It snowed.
Since it snowed,
School got canceled.
Since school got canceled,
Kids didn’t go to school.
Since kids didn’t go to school,
Fred went sledding.
Since Fred went sledding,
Fred broke a bone.
Since Fred broke a bone,
The ambulance had to come pick him up.
Since the ambulance had to pick him up,
The ambulance went speeding down the highway.
Since the ambulance went speeding down the highway,
The ambulance had to pass a lot of cars.
Since the ambulance had to pass a lot of cars,
John’s car got rammed off the road.
Since John’s car got rammed off the road,
John got knocked out.
Since John got knocked out,
John couldn’t go home.
Since John couldn’t go home,
His dog chewed up the rug.

What inspired me to write this piece was my block teacher and all of my friends that helped me with ideas for this poem.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Nice poem, but I feel as if the ending came upon suddenly - since the whole poem seemed to be building up towards something more strong than that.
