You Remind Me.......

FREE WRITING

You remind me of someone who hurt me badly
Someone who made me cry for months
That person break me 
And I'm still picking up the pieces
Are you going to hurt me like that?
Are you going to be like him?
If so, just leave me alone
Because I refuse to be hurt
Or broken like that again

Universal Knowledge

Action

The ONLY universal language is action; action is understood around the world, if you don't believe in an action that someone took then you'll either take action or sit quietly and let it happen over and over again (like most people in the twenty-first century).

7 Cubed

Too much Noise

Book: Taken By a Stranger (Noise)

The noise was unbearable, so I ended it. You're probably wondering how; for sure it wasn't murder. I told people about the noises, but they won't listen to me. I was called crazy or delusional, until it was too late. Once everyone realized it was real I was already gone. People now are aware of my condition and knows that it's serious, I just wish it happened before I left. But then again I did bring awareness to them so I guess me leaving was good; I'm mostly glad the noise is gone.

Hey White People

Hey white people, just one of the many struggling black people here
I actually come to one of your colleges 
I'm still trying to get use to it though....... but I probably won't
You see, I come from a very diverse high school
That school, in my eyes, IS the perfect example of DIVERSITY
This school not so much
After these recent (and let's not kid ourselves) future events I fear you
I fear your white privilege
I your antics
I would rather fear you than not fear you and get hurt (like so many of my brothers and sisters)
I hear light skins have it easy since our color almost matches yours
But my skin being light doesn't matter to you
My hair still isn't straight.....or even blonde
I AM A KINKY AFRICAN AMERICAN THAT DOES NOT WANT TO FEEL FEAR ANYMORE
But of course that's not going to happen
My kids will have to feel this fear
I...

Diversity?

Where's the diversity
I thought this school was diverse 
Guess again
Nothing but white
Once in awhile I'll see black, yellow, green, brown......
Why is white so much here?
Is it cause color folks aren't smart or focused
Or cause we bad and defiant
What do you think whitie
Are we color folks too bad and defiant for your liken
Are we too ghetto and poor
How about we go back to the "good o'days"
I better most of you whities would love that
Yessa massa I will let you divide my race up again
Or
Thank you massa for the (spoiled) food
I know not all of you are like that though.....
You know why......cause I know how it feels to be judged
By the color of my skin
Not brains or even how I act
Please don't be like those people whitie
 

Mysteries Abound

The Truth

We don't know what made people think one race is better than another

We don't know what makes cops feel entitled to brutalize a race 

We don't know how to make America great, we can't even make it decent 

We certainly haven't agreed on whether the black community is still oppressed or is it because we're "lazy"

Us

0 is the number of times I've stopped loving everything about you. 

1 is how many times I've fell in love; I'm thankful it was you.

2 is the number of times I've cried over you, they're going to be more.

3 will probably be how many arguments we'll have yearly, but never leave each other.

4 will be the number of little us I want.

5 is the number of years I want to have with you before marriage, seems fair to me.

6 is how many emotions I go through and you handle every single one like a pro.

7 is considered a lucky number; my lucky number is the day you asked me to be yours.

8 is the minimum number of kisses and hugs I want from you a day.

9 is not the number of years we're going to spend together; there will be many more years to come.

He...he...he...is the love of my life

O’Clock

5:30 am,April 2, 2015

Do you know what happened on this day?
Probably not since it wasn't broadcasted like France
147 
That's how many people died
And for what
To scary millions
When I found this out I woundered to myself
Why wasn't this in the media?
Was it because it's in Kenya
Or maybe because they're black
I wouldn't be surprised if it was both
We're not the ideal face of victims
I sadly didn't know what this day was
But know that I do, I will not forget 

On the Last Day of the World

Nothing

To be honest, I would sit frozen, waiting
Waiting for the end to come and right our wrongs 

Ripple Effect

Time to Evolve

Are we conserving enough water for everyone in California
Or are we just using it all up until there's no more
We're taught to conserve as best as we could, but do the people that teach us conserve?
Probably not, as long as they have water who cares
Surely they don't

That Sort of Person

Just a Sample

Prince is the type of person to become obsessed.
I am the type of person that calms him down when things start to fly.
Prince is that boy who thinks of outrageous plans, then actually goes through with them.
I am that girl who loves him immensely.

Six-Word Story

Funny

Being funny can be your downfall.

Him 2

Chapter 2

Since that day Prince and I became inseparable, even though we live in two different cities. When we don't see each other we're talking on the phone for hours. On one of those phone conversations he suggested that my mom, sister, and I should move into their guest house. I thought that was a great idea, but I didn't think his parents would allow that or if my mom would agree to that.

"I'll take care of everything, just sit there and look pretty." always being sarcastic.
 
"Goodnight loser Beast, I'll call you tomorrow." 

"Goodnight pretty Venus I love you." the last part was so quiet.

"What was the last part, you spoke to low."

"I said I'll be waiting."

Prince POV (point of view)

Saying I love you to sweet Venus was amazing, but hearing a rejection would have been the worse thing ever. So operation cupid went into full affect. I would talk to...

The Unknown

Humans

I don't know much about humans
They're emotional, loud, destructive creatures
Changing their minds ever 2 seconds
I want food
No sleep
When does it all stop
Hopefully soon

Him 1

Chapter 1

I met the love of my life when I was five at a convention for saving your money properly. It was during the break when Prince Bull, son of the wealthiest family on the west coast, came up to me and hugged me. He kept saying "mine", my mom and grandma was confused about who this little boy belonged to and why he was hugging me. Roughly ten minutes later his parents came out and explained the whole situation. Prince wanted someone special to be with, so they decided to walk around for Prince to find that person. Mind you I'm five I didn't understand what was going on; after he let me go I ran behind my mom. Prince was already seven so he didn't understand why I was acting like this. He was a very outgoing seven year old; me on the other hand struggled to make friends in kindergarten. After some talk between the adults...

Five Beginnings

New Beginnings

1) Why am I the only girl. This whole school I'm the only girl. Usually this is any girl's dream, but not me. Having lots, and I mean LOTS, of boys lusting after you is pretty stressful. Breaking hearts is the one thing I hat doing and it seems like I'll be doing that often.

2) Her eyes were the purest purple I've ever seen, her hair the blackest shadow on a moonless night, her skin the color of sweet mocha. I want her. Oneday she'll be all mine; no one would ever touch her again.

3) Why is it so sunny; I just want to sleep for a little longer.If that's your first thought then your day will be crappy. Everytime I thought of something negative in the morning something bad happened later on. So it's been my goal to only think positive.

4) Music is life. I function better when Jhene Aiko comes on, she's a musical goddess. Without...

Open Prompt

Love

Love hurts

That's what everyone says

Love doesn't hurt

It's who you fall for

It's those people who help with love

Without them wrong people would fall in love

I thank all the heart breakers

I found my true love 

 

Story of a Scar

I Remember This

Scars are always fun to remember. I have 10 scars all over my body; some are small, big, or even jagged. I aquired these scars from having many adventures. Not really, I just like to tell people that so they think I'm cool. I live a pretty boring life. Day in and day out I just wake up, go to school, come home, do homework, and go to sleep. Since that's all I do I don't have any friends. I try to stay away from people because I don't want to get hurt, especially since high school kids can be cruel.There's this one scar that changed the way I see other people. It's not a scar that you can see, it's an emotional scar.

I'd never been to school before my 9th grade year. My parents thought that the school system didn't teach kids what they need to know to survive in the real world; so from birth my parents and I travelled around the world. They taught me to...

YOU in threes

Me

Three adjectives your peers would use to describe you.

  • Funny
  • Quiet
  • Nice

Three adjectives your family would use.

  • Mean
  • Resonsible
  • Loud

Three things about you that very few people know.

  • I think too much 
  • I eat a lot
  • I hate crowded spaces

Three specific physical descriptions (the particular shape of your front teeth, the color of your palms, the curve of your spine).

  • My big lips are gorgous
  • The color of my eyes
  • My cute button nose

Three flaws.

  • My teeth
  • My hair
  • My feet

Three pet peeves.

  • Ignorance
  • People who don't listen
  • When people annoy me

 Three sources of comfort.

  • Being by myself
  • Being in my boyfriend's arms
  • Eating
