    The ribbon in her hair Made of silk, so precious The rosiest of pinks The color unfading, bright Her beautiful brunette locks Intertwine with the ribbon Wrapping around each other When she skips, twirls Or when the wind blows The ribbon in her hair Tied tightly into a bow By her mother, l...

    Seconds turn into minutes Minutes turn into hours I lay here just wondering Wondering about everything Dark room, few lights Eyes wide open, no moon Cloudy enough to make me sad But not cloudy enough to make me sleepy Tired, feeling tired Yet no sleep comes No rest, yet my mind screams, &...

    It's better Whenever I'm not thinking of you. It's better when I laugh And it's not because of your sarcasm. It's better when I cry And its because I'm overjoyed. It's better when I fall asleep at night Without tears on my pillow and a sweet lullaby of music...

    Shadows danced around me They looked familiar But I was unaffected For once I was not afraid Of them and their words For once I was strong And broke free from their grasp For once, just this once They couldn’t touch me. Their fingers tried to take My hopes and dreams Their eyes tried ...

    Perfectionists expect flawlessness and anything apart from that is despicable. They are never fully satisfied with who they are and what they do. Perfectionism has negative consequences that range from low self-esteem to obsessive behaviors. Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), not to b...

    Who we are today Is different than who we were yesterday Yesterday we were Younger, stronger, brighter As we live We lose that shine, that pureness Like a child Dreaming of a faraway land Like a baby Knowing of nothing but good Yesterday was when pureness was still here Where did it go?...

    Looking into those eyes, makes me wonder... Makes me ponder, about you; about us... What could have been, what will be... What should change, what shouldn't be... It makes me wonder, if I should like you... Or not...or if you like me...or not... Looking into those eyes, I feel something.....

    People stare, I can feel it. They think I'm pretty, but never state it. I'm untouchable, they all know it. But why? I'm no one special. I'm just like you, nothing better. So why just admire? Tell me, don't fake it. I know you know, so don't turn away. Face me and...

    Your mouth opens but nothing comes out... My heart breaks and hurt comes out. Your eyes blink tearlessly without a doubt... My soul cries into an endless pout. Your arms linger movementless by your sides... My hands reaching, wanting your touch. You back away, loving me no longer... And I fal...

    Everyone knows, How the world is. Not perfect, Not round, But it spins, And moves, Like the wind. I feel it, It's the wind. The wind that blows in my hair, The wind that raised me up, The wind that gave me hope, And it's the one, It's the feeling and sensation, The feeli...

    Beauty comes within, Where the heart beats. On the outside, It's just a blur. You never know, Until you look within someone, To find beauty, In one's heart....

    Lost again, in my world, Found a way out but didn't go. Thinking of sad thoughts, Happy ones too, So many memories that gives me tears. Out of the crowd again, Wanting to be back inside, Everywhere I go, Feeling different every step I take. I just want to be normal, To be more than me...

    What makes your life different from other people? If you can’t answer that question, then you don’t know what life really is. Life is what you do everyday and what you like and don’t like to do. It is simply who you are, what you are, and why you are who you are. Everything you do impacts on y...

    Nature is all around us. Trees, water, even you are a part of nature. I was about 9 years old, the last time I went camping in the summer. My family and I went with friends to a wonderful campsite on a mountain. Right next to the mountain is a huge, magnificent lake. Also, there is a cold, long riv...

    When I was little I was learning how to read But now that I’m older I write my own stories. When I was little I took ballet lessons as graceful as a swan But now that I’m older I can play challenging tennis. When I was little I made friends with everyone in my school But now that I’m ...

    Natural beauty can be seen at every corner. The wondrous fragrances of assorted roses smell like a fresh mist of perfume in the air. Cheerful robins and blue jays sing a song of joyfulness and the melody would travel through the air, soothing the surrounding souls. A tangy, bitter-sweet flavor gets ...

    Being different from others is not a disadvantage. As demonstrated by Louis, a spirited Trumpeter Swan, even when you may be different from your own kind, you still have the opportunity to become the best. It takes hard work and determination, but in the end it will all be worth it. In the heartw...

    Past the mist covered mountains, The ocean turned dark blue. Through those crowded streets, I saw faces that only I knew. As the grass grows green, A splash of color fills the air. The birds are calling to me. Though it seemed so long ago, Sun shine sparkled in the clouds. I lost my sense...
