There are two kinds of people in life: The ones you need to fight for, and the ones you should just let go.


For the third quarter of my sophmore year we did a poetry unit. At the end of the unit we ha our "First Annual Slam Poetry Contest. I won fourth place in the slam.

My poetry slam,

Basically, I’m back where I wanna be,
Wannabe book boys talking about History,
Next book I’m reading,
I’ll be reading mystery.

I went to a shop,
Just to talk persuasively,
When I’m doing maths,
I’ll be working algebraically.

Stare into a telescope,
And you’ll see the galaxy,
I see,
You see,
Stars are shining dazzlingly,

When I talk to strangers,
I just talk sarcastically.

“You're so clever”
“Really!”
“No! I’m being sarcastic”
“What! That’s not nice”
“So!”

Rationally,
Who cares about your individuality,
Doesn’t matter about your nationality,
All that matters is your personality,

When I’m playing mortal combat,
I do nothing but fatalities,
Judges always talking about,
My brutality,



My strategies,
Can’t beat me,
Cause it only ends with tragedies,

The calamities,
I bring upon this world,
Cause it’s just my formalities,

Amazon canopies,
In picture frames,
In galleries,

Pollution in the air,
Is caused by our factories,
Damaging this world,
Like cavities,

When I listen to music,
I just listen to the melodies,
With its repetitive parodies,

When I sneeze it’s just,
The causes of my allergies,

Just face it,
This is about reality,
Automatically,
All the technicalities,

When I’m in the gym,
I’m burning calories,

Personally,
I just want a better salary,

When saying a poem,
I try to speak enthusiastically,
