Poem: Falling Time

Added on February 16, 2018 by Dania.F

Falling down a hill

It's hard to stop

Speed picks up

As time goes by

When Fall comes around

Time starts to fly

Homework starts piling

Fallen colored leaves

Raked high and neat

To be jumped in

In the cool absence of heat

Weeks flurry past

Blown away by Fall wind

It's hard to make time

When skipping work is a crime

Soon the air will crisp further

But before apple cider turns to hot chocolate

'Fore hot chocolate turns to lemonade

'Fore the cider's back again

Let Autumn delight in the youngest you it'll ever again see

Don't refrain from raking leaves

But take a break for some pie

A tumble down a hill

School might feel like at times

But even tumbles will be missed

When they've been over for a while

In a whirlpool of chilly air

Leaves flurrying around

Coming back to where they began

School years cycling on

Grade numbers nearing twelve

 

Poem: We All Like To Think

Added on January 5, 2015 by Afreen.A

Poem: We All Like To Think
I'd like to think that I'm perfect.
Without flaws
Not bruised and unscarred
 
But I can't paint pretty pictures
Of all my spontaneous thoughts.
For they seem too scattered at times.
I cannot paint striking pictures for you,
These thoughts of mine cannot be translated.
 
But I will tell you this,
I am not what I seem.
 
I can't sing in a falsetto tone.
Beautiful
Haunting
Melancholic
And a little bit sweet.
It has an uncanny habit of falling out of tune,
you see.
 
Nor can I play for you,
For my fingers seem to fumble and shake.
Nor can I bake a perfect cake
Or bend my body in a different million ways.
 
I will never be her…..
Or them
Or even like you.
 
But that's alright,
I'm proud to be me
 
-Afreen Ashraf
