Message from Writer

If you are smart, if you like to sing, if you like to draw, or if you like to write, it doesn't matter. Everyone should get equal opportunities to do what they want. If you are being bullied for who you are, don't be afraid to stand up to the bully! Be who you are and never feel like you have to fit into a category.

Roses

Roses, however so pretty they may be,
Deceive and prick with their threatening thorns.
As their petals fall off and land with a soft thud,
More layers of the rose are revealed.
They may have the scent of the fresh air at sunrise
But if disturbed from their bed of soil, will wither and die.
Touch a rose if you dare,
But its thorns have a quiet taste for blood.

Hey and Sorry!

Hey everyone! I'm REALLY sorry I haven't posted anything in a long time, but I've been busy with balancing theatre and school! (I was just the lead in my school play.) Here is fun poem to celebrate the rain and spring. Hope you like it!

Outside of the window of my dreary old house
There was a noise so loud that even my thoughts it could douse
I hear the pitter patter of something on my window
I walked over to see what is on tiptoe
I think to myself “Am I going I insane?”
And I open my curtains to discover the rain!

Private Eye, By: Stripedfly1001

READ THIS!!! This is by stripedfly1001 and they are a very good writer!

Private Eye By: stripedfly1001 
It was a baffling case, the likes of which could easily turn a sane, respectable man into the most unwanted creature on all of the earth. But then again, Luis Foster wasn't hired for the easy cases.  
    He'd been a private eye for near a decade, if you rounded up. Black boots, well-worn and probably a hand-me-down, a leather jacket that was in no better condition, shiny, dark sunglasses, and a piece of carved wood meant to look like a pipe completed Luis' outfit.  
    Today was not much different than the average workday, though the person begging for Luis' assistance was slightly more desperate. She was a woman, not very tall, but still looked very capable of being intimidating. She wore a sparkly pink dress that hardly seemed to fit in Luis' dingy office, and her hair was done...

Third Place: 
Who took the cat? By: Ryder 
Who took the cat? 
Why would they do it? 
Oh, what happened 
To my poor little kit?
It was christmas eve 
That she was last seen, 
Was it Santa that took her? 
Could he be that mean?
Oh, who took the cat? 
Where is she at? 
I go to my stoking 
For that last piece of chocolate
And would you believe it? 
Whats stranger then that? 
I found curled in the stoking 
My own dear cat!

Second Place
Where’s the cat? By: Early Pearl ☑️
Where is my cat? 
She's disappeared  
into the great unknown, 
and I think she stole my hat. 

My baby brother seems to know, 
as every time I think aloud 
he giggles 
as if for show. 

"What did you do with her?" 
I ask with eyebrows raised, 
but he only grins, 
his clothing covered with fur. 

I feel around under the couch,  
seeking for my ball...

Daily Goat Quotes: Day 21

You have goat to be kidding!

Daily Goat Quotes: Day 20

A baby goat is called a kid. What happens when a baby goat takes a nap? It is a kidnap.

Power: Part 2


So, it finally happened, I got to see them. But it wasn’t the way I thought it would happen.
 
         I started my shift, still no parents. I clocked out, still no family. I went home, nobody. Wait, what was that noise in the yard? I went out to investigate. There I found lying on the ground was my younger brother James. His eyes were closed. I checked his pulse. It was there, but faint.
 
         I looked up and noticed the rest of my family and friends. They were all in the same condition as James. Except for one person. There was Sarah tied to a pole bound, gagged, and unconscious. There was a pulse though. There was also a note on the ground next to her. It said,
 
       Dear Ally,
I see you have found my note. I am Harno. The note from two years earlier was not written by your parents, I wrote...

Daily Goat Quotes: Day 8

Do what Goats think you can't do.

Power: Part 1

I used to be normal… I used to have a family… I used to have a love… All that was taken from me, I have no one now.

“Alley, order up!” I work as a waitress at a popular diner called Dike’s Diner. Forgive my manners, let me properly introduce myself. My name is Allison Pello, but people just call me Alley. I’m seventeen (almost eighteen), I have brown hair and blue eyes with snow skin. I should really get a tan… Anyway, I used to have a family until that day two years earlier. 

My family looked normal from the outside. But it was anything but normal. Through generations my family has had gifts involving the mind. Some are extraordinarily smart, some have a memory that cannot forget anything, some can read minds, and some have telepathy. 

My father, Hero Pello, had brown hair and green eyes and telepathy, my mother, Linda Pello, had black hair and blue eyes and came from a line of people known as Cerenes. They had powers that had to do with the elements as in fire, ice, water, and air. My mother had the air powers; she could control the wind. James Pello, my younger brother, had black hair and green eyes and had the power to control fire and he was very, very smart. My older sister, Sarah Pello, had brown hair and green eyes and had a never-forgetting memory and had air powers to fly. I had the power to read minds (it gets rather annoying at times) and the power to control water.

I know what you’re thinking: that this is impossible, but it is true! It is very freaky. I have only told my best friends Mari and Aqu, and my boyfriend John Mason. Mari had auburn hair and beautiful brown eyes with freckles. Aqu had blonde hair with light green eyes. John had black hair with piercing light blue eyes.

One day I was at the mall looking for a birthday present for my brother’s 10th birthday (I was only fifteen at the time). I came back home to find a note and a glass flower. The note said that my family was fine and that they had to leave me to protect me and would be back on my eighteenth birthday and no matter what, take care of the glass flower. It was signed by my dad, brother, sister, mom, best friends, and boyfriend. I started freaking out and calling for them with a shaky voice, “Guys funny prank, you can come out now.”

Since that day I have been waiting for my family and friends to return. I have missed them every day. 

Sometimes I get so angry it is hard to control my powers. I have to be careful...

Leaves


The leaves are colorful on the ground
They lie in a hopeful mound
Beneath them is my late mother
There we stand, me and my brother
 
‘Twas a year before all this happened
I was just lying there with my little cat nappin’
I got a call from my sister
She said, “Come quick! It’s about mom! We are about to miss her!”
 
And when I heard the news I was filled with dread
I knew my mom was on her deathbed
I hugged her and kissed her
And everything turned into a blur
 
I stand wrapped in my big brother’s arm
As he tries to keep me away from harm
The rain swirls around me
As we stand there by a tree
 
Every fall those colorful leaves are on the ground
Lying in a hopeful mound
Beneath them is my late mother
There we stand, me and my brother
