What better way to end the school year that with an expression creativity that brings art and language together! And that’s just what some of Ms. Kramers students have been doing. Here’s a sample of some of their wonderful poetry. Enjoy 🙂
From Maia Marcoschamer
The first day of school it’s all
New New New
New people and places
And classes too
Stomp stomp stomp
What’s that noise
Don’t be scared
Don’t you cry
It’s just the chatter of your classmates’ shoes
Take a deep breath
And count to three
Then you will see
School is not that scary
On the contrary,
It’s quite merry
From Alexis Carroll
Why you should not mess with paranormal activity
Blood and gore and many more,
Ghosts and devils live in lore.
Witchcraft and Wicca still modern and alive
Magic still practiced and dangerous it is.
Paranormal activity like the devil within.
A sound from the woods sends fear down your spine
Or maybe footsteps down the hallway
Ghosts could be anywhere or in anything
Perform a séance with some friends to get rid of them
Or maybe a ritual to get your revenge.
From Juliana Matlick
Advice on Hatred
There are so many human emotions
One of the strongest can be hate
It can become a monster in your mind
It can cause your actions to not make sense
And violence may become its fate.
It’s best to stay away from circling thoughts of hate
They can rage like wildfires out of control
And can turn into crashing waves of violence
Better to look for peaceful ways to put these fires out
To calm the hatred and violence is better for your soul.
From Gabriela Lopez-Grimalt
All we wanted to do from the start was learn,
From how clouds are made to where oceans came from.
Because we had to start somewhere right?
Or maybe there was never a beginning
Maybe it keeps going and going and it never stops
We take reality and put it under a spyglass in hopes of finding answers
Sometimes we find them, Sometimes we don’t.
We like to see how something works and functions
Sometimes being blinded by curiosity
even if it might treat you like a friend of an enemy
with not caring what dangers might lie ahead
Because then what would the universe have us do,
We like to learn and study and understand and acknowledge.
So remember, whether you are standing up proud or tumbling down
Never give up cause after all,
It’s human nature to be curious.
From Patricio Perezalonso
“It doesn’t matter that you’re remembered after death. It matters how you spent your life and how you spent your years on this earth” – to make people live more and worry less
In the last colony that lives
Lies a creature that’s half machine and half human
Its body is a cobweb of cables filled with nurintents and sugars
Everyday it asks to the uncaring and dying universe
“I hold the memory of all of the old world give me a student, so I can teach to bear ever memory of past world”
And Every Time it answered with Starlessness and silence
It held every memory of everyone so all their efforts wouldn’t be in vain
Everyday he hopes for something to change that can ease Its pain
Wearing a crown of sharp cables that hurt like thorns
But the true sacrifice is to take all of the cables off
One day It heard
“Will every Painting will be less beautiful if there’s no one to see it
Will every kiss will be less enjoyable if no one to remember it
Will every evil dead be less despicable if no one around to feel it consequence’
On that they It chose to rest and there was just starless skies and silence
