3: Poem: Remember | If I would die tomorrow will you even care, will you remember the girl with the dark brown hair, skin so soft lightish brown, every time you seen her she wore a smile never could tell she was down, will you remember her eyes as they sparkle like the stars in the sky, the girl who question when but never why the girl who believe anything even a lie, would you remember how she love to fast and how hard she tried to forget about the past or about her journey and how she never gave up she would crawl on her knees just for some luck, would you remember that girl who couldn’t find the door to life or the key would you remember her, would you remember Me

5: February 11th that’s when someone special was born, she was light as can be hardly could see, she cried as they removed her from her mother and wrapped her in a pink cover she smiled and brighten up the room like the sun on a summer day, her hair curled like the back of somebody toes whose getting a great massage, ode to the way her eyes sparkle like the north star on a winter night, ode to the way she grew up and was determine to live her dreams, she was no longer her mother’s little princess she was now sixteen | all those years she laugh freely because she couldn’t see herself sad until she became less nave and cried because the pain hit her so bad, strong as a lion that rules the safari, she is quick on her mind like a cheetah is quick on his feet, ode to the way she don’t let anything bring her down, ode to even though she’s not a queen she still walks like she’s wearing a crown, ode to the way that she not scared to show her pride, ode to the way she smiles even though she sometimes feels like she want to lay down and die, | ode that she don’t need anyone on her team she’s find on her own, ode to that she still see that she have a life even when she don’t have a phone, ode to when she wake up in the morning she praise god because she get to live to see another day, ode to her ode to SHAE
6: Sonnet: A poem of fourteen lines using any of a number of formal rhyme schemes, in English typically having ten syllables per line | What is a sonnet??
7: She smile and laugh so happy she appear, But inside of her it’s a hard task, All she does is live in horror and fear, Laying there remembering about her past Sitting there wondering if she had died, Don’t even care about the truth anymore, Would they even care would they had cried, She wants a way out looking for a door Depression is seeking in clearly, She just don’t want to be here anymore, Trying to see life but everything is bleary, She thinks to herself what she is here for Don’t want to live you can see in her eyes, Drowning in her tears of lies and goodbyes

11: AS I GO My pot is an old paint container I do not know who bought it I do not know whose house it decorated I picked up the empty tin in Cemetery Lane. My lamp, a paraffin lamp is an empty 280ml bottle labelled 40 per cent alcohol I picked up the bottle in a trash bin. My cup is an old jam tin I do not know who enjoyed the sweetness I found the tin in a storm-water drain. My plate is a motor car hub-cap cover I do not know whose car it belonged to I found a boy wheeling it, playing with it My house is built from plastic over cardboard I found the plastic being blown by the wind It’s simple I pick up my life as I go.
