3: I'm From my Family I'm from where the snow touches the ground more than once a year at the age of three I moved here. My parents grew on a different horizon I guess it's time for me to shine now. At three years my grandpa's ashes crossed the sea. I'm from where people fight to see the light My family is big but each of us are connected by you and me. Family is like an iron chain we stick together strong When a chain breaks we fall from the path that has begun. I am the start of a family connected sea to sea I stick out in a crowd but that doesn't matter to me. I fight to survive but no path is going to stop me from me from my family At the age of ten I saw my cousins crossed the sea to reach the family that was behind me. Chains that are broken can be salvaged to hold strong. The only things that we needed are people together in my family. All too often people branch out for a new life We still need to look at our past to live in prosperity I'm from the east and the west Because I walk the path of my family I walk the path the of many falls But, the world isn't that small Everyone is our family and everyone's path is our path Every year our family goes along every year we get strong I'm from my family and I'm proud of it
5: Mother's Kitchen It's 6 in the afternoon Dinner will be ready soon. Mamas fixing the food I'm hungry and in the mood. We're Indian as you can see No meat for my family. Our meals are made from veggies. The food will be great I can't disagree. Dinner smells good. I can't wait for the food. In the pot mamas got something brewed. This poem isn't going to conclude. I'm going to eat a lot. The food is really hot. At the table i ready my slot . There is a lot of food in the pot. I want to eat. The stove is blasting heat. The meal is ready and complete. Dessert is sweet.
7: Mother to Son Life ain't no road of gold There are obstructions at every point The path isn't clear But, you have to face your fear The obstacles are strong No ones there to fight along This road is scary at night This battle you have fight Not everything is scary You will find some girl to marry Together the road is long Son, life is like a song To every path you take There is a decision you have to make Will you fight as you stand Nothing goes the way you planned Son, live life right The future is bright Till the day you get old Life ain't no road of gold
9: Ode to GSMST This is GSMST the school where knowledge comes and goes as we see Tomorrow's leaders are trained here To survive at this school you have to work hard to get a B The world's next leaders are growing up there is nothing to fear Students are challenged to succeed Let the problem in America education recede The future is bright, the road is in sight Together we will show our might The world is open and the playing field is set Expectation are set high that's something we have to get At this school dreams are the path to the light With every struggle we put up a fight Life is great The future at GSMSt is worth the wail
11: language arts Limerick The language arts poem is on its way to fame the alliteration has two ward side that sound the same The rhythm is when a poem or song has a beat a meter is used to divide the parts into equal time to make the feat Elegy is a relieving and dreadful poem, it's like no one wants to come Enjambment is running of though in one pace A fourteen line sonnet is an ace Diction is using a specific choice of words to guide the way Onomatopoeia are sound words that people use every day Personification is giving inhuman things a face Imaginary is very unreal The tone is the pitches' feel Metaphor is comparison using like or as Caesura is a pause that gives a poem mass Figurative language is a special effect that moves the poem like a wheel Theme is the centered subject to seem Speaker is the person talking in the poem like in a dream Blank verses are not rhyming Epigram is a short poems that climbs Haiku is a poem with three streams. Hexameter is a poem with six feet Heptameter is a poem with seven treats Refrain is a group of lines Stressing lines have many kinds Consonance is the repetition on one sheet

13: "Fire and Ice" By. Robert Frost Some say the world will end in fire. Some say in ice. From what I've taste of desire I hold with those who favor fire. I think I know enough hate to say that for destruction ice Is also great And would be suffice
14: explication this poem is about technology and nature combining into one used poetic terms: personification: returning to our mammal brother and sisters poetic imagery: all watched over
15: All Watched Over by Machine of Loving Grace By. Richard Brautigan I like to think (and the sooner the better!) of a cybernetic meadow where mammals and computers live together in mutually programming harmony like pure water touching clear sky. I like to think (right now, please!) of a cybernetic forest filled with pines and electronics where deer stroll peacefully past computers as if they were flowers with spinning blossoms. I like to think (it has to be) of a cybernetic ecology where we are free of our labors and joined back to nature returned to our mammal brothers and sisters, and all watched over by machines of loving grace.
