Favorite Quote:
When life gives you lemons,
Eat them.
They do not taste that bad.

Life is like autumn.
Stop to crunch the pesky leaves.

Love is... let me think...

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Poetry is a way to put words to things that are unexplainable.

My family! How they make my life so wild!
I think of my belittled sleep at night.
Perfection through my family is defiled.
I wonder if our home can turn out right.
When I get home I rush into my room,
But on the way, I seem to cross a pool
With alligators snapping, showing doom
And crush the placid mood I gained from school.
Our daily fights are harsh; can come and go
Our troubles as a whole, and while apart,
Are great, though on the outside they don’t show.
The insults spat do make my ears feel tart!
Still, though my family has its verbal strife,
I’ll cherish each word said throughout my life.

The author's comments:
30 minute English assignment. English/Shakespearean style sonnet. Just emphasizing the fact that most frustration in the home comes from verbal abuse.
