2: Where I'm From | I am from roti rollers, from Golden-Temple, and naan. I am from the city lights that were brighter than the sun itself. I am from the thick Dogwood trees, The bright Fuchsia Cherokee Rose I am from Mhendi and curly hair From Jasmine and Haroon From the lecturers and the leaders From think before you speak And Asalamualikum. I am from waking up five in the morning to fast I am from the hot, black soil of Bangladesh, Curry and Indianified Chinese food From the time my sister was born at Emory, The time my grandfather who I had not yet met passed away I am from the Wal-Mart grocery bags full of pictures Not yet sifted through And the collection of notes taped to the back of my door That were passed in the 7th grade The memories that were made, I am from the laughter and tears Permanently etched in my mind

6: My Mother's Kitchen | "Roshni! Brownie time!" As soon as I hear those delicious words, I'm down in the kitchen Going through the cupboards Smiling to myself, I pull out the recipe AAHH! Is that a dead four legged creature I see? Looking around, I find the ingredients Then I glance at my mom For I need some guidance spoonsThat could take all day! I finally finish The drawn out duty Ooh! Is that chocolate I see? My green oven Always was distracting But today, all I cared about was The beautiful fume Filling the room Finally finished I pick up a brownie and sigh Knowing that I'll have to Clean up the mess ahead

7: "Clean all the tools." My mother says I look at the pile of bowls and spoons That could take all day! I finally finish The drawn out duty Ooh! Is that chocolate I see? My blue oven Always was distracting But today, all I cared about was The beautiful fume Filling the room Finally finished I pick up a brownie and sigh Knowing that I'll have to Clean up the mess ahead

10: Mother to Daughter Poem | Listen, daughter, for I have important words to speak I've been through a lot And give up I have not Life doesn't hand you everything All premade and pretty You can't expect everything to just come to you Especially not in this city I grew up in not so nice conditions I grew out of it because I had a mission Know what you want, because it'll take you far Having an aim can give you power Daughter, listen For now it's your turn Time for you to make decisions To use what you learn I trust you daughter, To make the right decision These will follow you for the rest of your life I trust you daughter There once was a poem called, "Lizzy" Who rhymed until it was dizzy But it didn't know how to stop So it turned out to be a flop Now it is an apostrophe!

11: Daughter, listen For now it's your turn Time for you to make decisions To use what you learn I trust you daughter, To make the right decision These will follow you for the rest of your life I trust you daughter

14: Limerick | There once was a poem called, "Lizzy" Who rhymed until it was dizzy But it didn't know how to stop So it turned out to be a flop Now it is an apostrophe!

16: Ode to GSMST | Oh, GSMST, you are the creme de la creme You are the top of the top You are the peak of the mountain With you, I'd never swap You have the top faculty You have the top students Best of all, you have the best food Your greatness masks your difficulty Oh, GSMST, why are you so prudent? Because of you, my dreams have been pursued Oh, GSMST you give us a higher opportunity You bring us ahead of the game Together we are one big community Now we can finally reach our aim Studying hard is all we do Sleepless nights are common Endless homework is expected We try not to bite off more than we can chew Sometimes it's hard but, we're just human Our lives have all been affected

17: Being confined to doing homework all the time Is a small price to pay For I know, that GSMSTers are ahead in the climb Merely the thought of going to GSMST gets me excited all day Living day to day was getting old Then I got accepted to GSMST It changed what I was going to be As soon I spent a day at GSMST I knew I struck gold I saw it's curriculum and couldn't help but notice the beauty Thanks to GSMST, I can see more clearly I know my future is in good hands From here, all I can do is improve All the things I sacrificed to go to GSMST (which includes buying a minivan!) Going to GSMST was the best move Oh, GSMST thou art so great Your awesomeness astounds me The sense of love and accomplishment Because of you, we might sleep late Because of you, we take things to a different degree Oh, GSMST you don't receive enough acknowledgement

18: This is my ode to GSMST The greatest school of all The one who's taught me I know you'd catch me in case I ever fall The GSMST I've come to know and love The creme de la creme The best of the best The GSMST everyone speaks of Is the peak of the mountain GSMST is the ultimate test.

20: Similes/Metaphors Repetition Rhyme (End) Parallelism

21: Replay by Sean Kingston Shawtys like a melody in my head That I cant keep out Got me singin like Na na na na everyday Its like my iPod stuck on replay replay-ay-ay-ay (2x) Remember the first time we met You was at the mall with your friend I was scared to approach you But then you came closer Hopin you would give me a chance Who would have ever knew That we would ever be more than friends Were real worldwide breakin' all the rules She like a song played again and again That girl like somethin' off a poster That girl is a dime they say (Also metaphor) That girl is a gun to my holster (also metaphor) Shes runnin' through my mind all day

22: Shawtys like a melody in my head That I cant keep out Got me singin like Na na na na everyday Its like my iPod stuck on replay replay-ay-ay-ay (2x) See you been all around the globe Not once did you leave my mind We talk on the phone from night till the morn Girl you really change my life Doing things I never do Im in the kitchen cookin' things she likes Were real worldwide breakin' all the rules Someday I wanna make you my wife That girl like somethin’ off a poster That girl is a dime they say That girl is the gun to my holster Shes runnin’ through my mind all day

24: anyone lived in a pretty how town (with up so floating many bells down) spring summer autumn winter he sang his didn't he danced his did Women and men(both little and small) cared for anyone not at all they sowed their isn't they reaped their same sun moon stars rain children guessed(but only a few and down they forgot as up they grew autumn winter spring summer) that noone loved him more by more when by now and tree by leaf she laughed his joy she cried his grief bird by snow and stir by still anyone's any was all to her someones married their everyones laughed their cryings and did their dance (sleep wake hope and then)they said their nevers they slept their dream stars rain sun moon (and only the snow can begin to explain how children are apt to forget to remember with up so floating many bells down) one day anyone died i guess (and noone stooped to kiss his face) busy folk buried them side by side little by little and was by was all by all and deep by deep 7and more by more they dream their sleep noone and anyone earth by april wish by spirit and if by yes. Women and men(both ding and dong) summer autumn winter spring reaped their sowing and went their came sun moon stars rain

25: (and only the snow can begin to explain how children are apt to forget to remember with up so floating many bells down) one day anyone died i guess (and noone stooped to kiss his face) busy folk buried them side by side little by little and was by was all by all and deep by deep 7and more by more they dream their sleep noone and anyone earth by april wish by spirit and if by yes. Women and men(both ding and dong) summer autumn winter spring reaped their sowing and went their came sun moon stars rain | This poem talks about two people living in a nameless town: anyone and no one. They fell in love. The lines where he mentions the seasons are used to show passage of time.
