S: You Can't Handle This...It's Poetry
FC: Poetry!! | Jenelle Robinson
1: Poet vs. Musician Personally, I think that there is not really a difference between them, except for the fact that a musician uses music. At the same time, you could say that poets use music too, just in a different form, rhythm. Lyrics and poetry also express emotions and thoughts. They are just said in a different way.
2: Maya Angelo: -Born April 4,1928 in St. Louis. -She was raped at age 8 -She became mute for almost 6 years. | Still I Rise (excerpt) You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise Does my haughtiness offend you? Don't you take it awful hard 'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines.... | -In her teen years and early twenties, she danced. -She also began to write -She had a son at age 16.
3: No One Else (excerpt) Swift as a wind song you sang the music of an honest bird I waited for some contradiction truth was ringing in your every word and every moment since then the one thing I can tell is that I belong with you and no one else | Amel Larriex: -Born in 1973 -She was raised in an artistic enviroment -Her influences were taken from the styles of R&B, soul, jazz, hip-hop, and gospel -In the earlier days she was over looked for her softer voice but co-wrote and co-produced her first solo album with her husband.
4: Found Poem: If it's worth your while Say something good to me Emotions that, that they linger on I guess its 'cause i never knew a love so strong Don't it always seem to go That you dont know what you've got 'til it's gone Woke up this morning and saw your face And you didn't seem the same as yesterday Boy i trust you and all But i've been here before you You remind me of pain But i cant ignore you And we both know you're wrong There's nothing you can do, to ever undo What you've done to me I loved you, deep in my heart i know you Couldn't love me But baby i just keep holding on I should've let You go
5: My Turn! ...my poetry...
6: Alliteration/Assonance Poem =) | Live, live life like you mean it Live for freedom and feel it Feel the things that make you you 'cause being you is all you should do Don't degrate or deminish yourself 'cause as long as you're you, you shouldn't be anyone else just let go of what worthless "wannabes" think so you should be you and i'm gonna be me
7: End Rhyme Poem =) | Letting go of your fears Shedding some painful tears Feeling lost and alone Not sure where else to go Just hold on tight I am here I will fight And I’ll be near So don’t you worry Cause I’ll be here People disappointing you Not really knowing what is true You thought and you hoped things would change Wanting out of this place Just hold on tight I am here I will fight And I’ll be near So don’t you worry Cause I’ll be here I’ll be here
8: You've Changed Why you gotta be so fake Why you gotta change You used to be someone I knew But now you arent the same I listen to you And can feel my IQ drop And you just cant stop Cause you feel like its something you gotta do I tried to keep it up with you I tried to keep it strong We could have kept it goin But I guess I was so wrong You make me sick And I get ticked off Cause now you think you a boss And somehow I don’t exist... | ...You use me when I’m convenient You use me when you can It’s like you don’t need me Till you realize I’m the only one that understands You just make me so furious And im just curious if you can see yourself shift into someone that only tries to adjust you don’t stay who you are you don’t change for the good you jus change for the people around you regardless of whether you know you should I really wanna be done But you have too much fun now But soon I’m not gonna stick around The loss of our friendship has just begun
9: It’s this fear I try to deny and I hide but it stares me right in the eye right into my face, I feel like I’m running this race and im tired of tryin but i know i gotta go and keep pressin on stay strong, though it feels long you can be my goal, cause you make me whole and without you i know theres something missing
