Land of Imagination

Come and let us run away
To the land of our imagination.
Together weíll go today,
And visit lands of our creation.

Through pixie isles of wonder
We will tiptoe softly and gaze in awe.
Past seas and waves of thunder,
Where we are guests and nature is law.

In bright fields so vast and wide
We will run together with cares no more.
Past a snow-capped mountainside,
Like birds of the air, so free we will soar.

In rainbow filled lands weíve laid
We will dance and sing with joy so sublime.
But the colors start to fade,
And we know we cannot stay for all time.

From this world we will escape,
In the land of our imagination.
But before itís taken shape,
We must leave the land of our creation.

By...*drum roll...* ME!

I didn't read it
But I know its bad
and now i'm sure
you'll call me a cad

I expect greater
talent and style
but that sounded as bad
as nails on a file

give up writing poetry
you know it's my thing
quit writing poetry
I AM THE KING!

I express the same sentiments as the user who posted above me.

The poem was beautiful, Anna! I loved it. I could almost see the pictures you were painting with words Smile

Anna is a poet
She writes what she feels
Her words paint pictures

The Town of Odyssey
Founded in 2005
In 2008 became
Bloated and stuffy.

Then along came
The Electric Palace
And now all of us noobs
Feel right at home.

So why do it?

Though, Kody I'd rather,
You didn't put down the ToO,
It can be lots of fun
Just not when you're new.

Hahaha!

Rodney thinks that his poems are great,
But his mind is a little too late
His meter and rhyme
His wordsmith and time
They all stink, his poetry we hate!

Please let Rodney speak with the vice.

A strange, dark night
Rodney composes his poetry
For the sole purpose of insulting.



Umm... blank verse?


No, I can't write poetry.

Titled: Ricky Barbosa

You have stolen my heart.
Donít you see what you do to me?
Havenít you noticed my eyes on you constantly?
I want to be friends with you.
But you edge away.
I see your retreating form as it heads to class.
Sometimes I wish I had just one class with you.
You are not a bad person.
You are a great Christian guy.
I see so much in you.
Your actions match your words.
I see that so clearly, even though I donít know you.
You have friendsÖ I know.
Donít shy away from them.
Your friends will be there when no one else is.
GOD will be there when life SUCKS.
Hold on to what you have.
You have shown me God.
Canít you see?
Donít change what you are, regardless of what others say.
You have a gift.
You are special.
You love your family, I know that.
Donít let them go.
God lead you all the days of your life.

Amor, meÖ

Here is one I wrote about Ricky... I'm just kinda annoyed at him right now.. oh well...

The first Noel the angel did say,
Was to certain poor shephers in fields as they lay;
In fields where they lay keeping sheep,
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel

A traditional English carol.

Permanent

How can everything be well
When you are sitting through hell?
The ups and the downs
It all goes in rounds
With every new day
Comes another thought, another way
To demolish this monster
Get rid of, throw it in the dumpster
I want to stop this
I wish this wasn't his
Burden to carry
There must be another way to go

Day in and day out
I just wanna shout
"God, can I take his place?"
I see his pale face
And I feel tears come to my eyes
All he does is tries
To live each day to the fullest
Whilst I fear the end

He's alone and fighting
I stand at the side, waiting
Everything has become temporary
Time is no longer contemporar
He waits through the pain and anguish
To see another dream diminish
I urge him to fight
He turns on the light
And we both see
That we only have a moment together

I'm as permanent as cement
No matter how much longer we have
No money, no cent
Can get me to run, to wave
This is not just your battle
It is mine also in everything
Those animals, the cattle
Don't have an idea, a wing
What we must fight together
I'm not leaving, I'm permanent
Don't be afraid when I'm still there
'Cause I'm not leaving, I'm permanent


Wrote that after I listened to "Permanent" by David Cook over and over again... when I want to get my feelings out, I wrote poems for some odd reason... this one is for all the families fighting cancer, and to the individuals. God, and everyone rallying for them, won't be leaving. They are permanent.
Amor, Danielle

Untitled...:

Sea of Glass
See the Rose
Do they not sparkle?
Do they not glow?
Oh the wonders of magical eras
How they bring about our earthly roles.


A Cry From The Heart Shattered:
Everything has changed
If I don't live in this moment
I lose what I need most
Give me life, Oh God
Precious Life
I've wasted it before
I want to have it now
Live it too the fullest
I'm so utterly alone
I need someone, anyone
I sit day in day out
My body failing me
Is death to scare me?
Am I not a human?
Where must my life go
To get what now is precious time
And use it to the fullest
I never expect someone to take my place
I never would wish this on someone
Life is now
We must live it
Why now must I be dying?
Give me life, Oh God
A cry from the heart shattered
Hell is on earth
Now or Never
LifeÖ life needed, My God, Oh God

I was able to beg my way out of memorizing a Shakespearean sonnet! I will post one here to at least do something with sonnets.

William Shakespeare wrote:
Sonnet 18
Shall I Compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou are more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall Death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Can anyone recognize any lines in this sonnet other than the first three?

*sighs* I love that sonnet - simply lovely.
I recognize all of it because I have read it before. I do remember the first few lines being really, really famous, though. Where do you remember them from?

My little bro' needed a song for his band and I wrote this in about 15min. It isn't really good, critique welcomed!

Jesus you are worthy
Father three in one
Matchless God, creator of us
Here Iím resting in your arms

There is no one like you
Glory with no end
Powerful in all your Kingdom
Ruling with an upright hand

Thank, Precious Jesus
For holding me so close
Your blessed love no limit knows
Here I am, please make me whole

Your perfect plan of grace
Our minds canít comprehend
Your selfless love for our salvation
All glory resting in your Son

Glory, glory, glory
The ultimate plan for time
That you, your son and Holy Spirit
Glory reigníth through all time

Oh, I like it Hannah! Nice job!


Another poem I wrote... I have more, but I haven't gotten to either typing them or reforming them to how I want them to be... but, here's a stab at another poem I wrote... about someone special. Smile

It Is You This One Day

You take my world and shake it up
I canít stop you from this
Horrible, horrifying demise you have stumbled upon
Give me just a little better warning next time
And maybe I can get out alive
Iíd kiss you, love you for this
If it were meant to be
But for now Iíll understand
That we werenít to be
I give you up to her majesty
And walk away with barely a friendship
The hurt boils in my heart
But, it WAS my choice
One day youíll understand
One day Iíll see
For now, though, Iíll just watch
From a distance too far
I see what you are made of
Who you are and meant to become
Go your own way soon
I hope you remember me
One day Iíll be famous
My name on a book
Your name will echo from it
But will you know for sureÖ
That it is you?
