the Solitary Prayer

 



Dear God, Our Heavenly Father,
please protect and hold me tightly in your loving arms,
when I’m feeling afraid, alone, and low;
needing to be reminded of the light.
Please be that warm comfort at night.

Cyberspace Skank






Cyberspace Skank 

When did it become okay to diss your own best friend and tell every damn secret;
rumors spreading like the plague?
When did it become okay for young girls to degrade themselves and destroy their self-esteem?
Where was I when this became to be?
Sorry, I’m not fake;
I refuse to be another corrupted link,
I won’t be your cyberspace skank,
Because guess what, I know how to think!

Sort of venting about online fakes

Random 2012

Hi everyone, 


I don't know why writing this entry...recklessness I guess. I am writing a new short story. It's going to be good. :) A girl's wish will come true. How's everyone's year so far? My year has been great! Writing, chatting with friends, hanging out with family! 


For fun, here's me singing Rihanna's "California King Bed" I'm having a blast with my cam.

Censored

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-16655272 : SOPA and PIPA Postponed 



Censored 

If we lived in a world of censorship,
words would be sugar coated, covered up, blacked out;
us never knowing what the story is really about!
Seeing us as oblivious and naive,
tainted information would be what they expect us to believe,
without questions, without ideas or opinions.
We would say rest in peace creativity,
farwell imaginative technology,
for the truth would only come with a fee.

With all of the greed of Hollywood and all the ignorance of government,
our lives would be restricted, so limited;
But I won’t buy into that,
I will be heard,
I won’t be a part of a world that is censored!

Congress has thankfully stopped the voting of those ridiculous piracy bills after online protests. This poem just describes what would happen if they were passed and my extreme dislike.

Quick Update......And A Treat


Hi, guess what everyone! World Poetry Movement is publishing my poem "the Phantom in my Head" and I'm a semi-finalist in their contest. I'm excited! The winners will be announced June 1st.

And as for a silly treat, here's me singing "I'll Never Stop" by NSYNC. I was being goofy.

We'll Be Brave

 
Don't be scared, we'll face any obstacle, fight any horrible demon like a mini army. We'll be incredibly strong and brave. We'll keep on holding hands as enemies try to overpower. I'll always be there with you, there reminding you to smile even when life seems dark.
