Farewell hugs and 
shining smiles on 
the faces of 
friends we're 
saying goodbye to, 
wishing we just had 
a little more time 
to spend 

We came in together 
and depart as 
bittersweet moments 
of laughter and 
as we leave 
yet another period 
of our long 

"As we go on, we remember
All the times we had together
And as our lives change, from whatever
We will still be, friends forever."
-Vitamin C (Graduation Song)

I graduated from my amazing school last night... I'm gonna miss all my friends going to different schools, the teachers who really helped us, and how tight knit our school was. Special shout-out to Kasia, Patty (I know both of you will read this), Maha, Gabby, Rafe, Sab, Joakim, Emma, Shayla, Taylor and so many more! You guys are the best. I truly hope as Vitamin C says that "we will still be friends forever".

The Sticky Web

Lies build 
and build upon 
each other until 
the creator, 
are stuck in the 
middle of a 
sticky web--

I peered inside 
my soul today, 
seeing several things. 
My experiences and 
my sorrow 
and joy. 
I looked into 
a mirror today 
and saw 
everything in my 
heart and soul 
reflected upon 
We are nothing more 
than the sum of our 
soul and

Blood and Irony

Predator becomes 
prey as water turns 
red with blood 
and irony, 
sharks writhing and 
drowning in the realm 
they should've lived 
longer in.  

Living fossils from millions of 
years ago are 
rendered powerless 
and fin less within 
a few years, 
on the verge 
of their extinction.

"Cruel killing machines" are 
being destroyed by 
the cruelest creatures  
of all: 

I was looking through my posts when I realized I haven't posted on this subject yet! I'm on this awesome art forum called "Deviantart" where people can post up art of all kinds and comment on others. One of my favourite artists put up this beautiful (but slightly gory) piece of art she did. The title and poem is inspired by her artwork. Check it out and read the description. You'll be shocked:

Random Non-poem Post

Hi people! This is actually my first non poem post I've put up... :)
Anyways, sorry for not posting anything lately, I've been busy with the end of the school year (just had an exam last week and this morning) and I've been somewhat uninspired by anything new. But I got one of my workbooks back in core and it has a lot of poems I didn't post up in it, so I'll be using that for the next little while.
Thanks for those of you sticking around since the beginning, and those new visitors out there!

p.s Happy Belated Father's Day!

bravery is not 
about going out 
to do something frightening 
or different 
or strange, 
but taking the 
worst of things 
and making the best 
out of it.

This is the most inspiring blog I've ever read. This girl Alice has become an internet sensation, but I'm not surprised, as she's incredibly brave and wonderful. Check it out!

Perception of Time

In the 
feels like an eternity 
of waiting, 
of watching, 
of living. 

Yet when we 
think about the 
days and 
weeks and months 
that have past 
in almost a 
time seems like a 
as if two days were the 
same as two years, 
as if things have started 
and ended so soon. 

But it is not time that 
has changed 
every moment, 
as it trundles on 
second by second, 
day by day, 
but our perception of 

It's amazing how fast 2 years can feel. I don't feel 2 years older, or that it's 2011, or that I'm going to high school next year (eep!). The school year is almost over, and I'm graduating from my amazing school at the end of the month. Everything is creeping nearer, and w don't quite appreciate it until we get there. As Miral said, "Our school years is coming close to an end. Our memories will stay with us. We had a great time and everything is coming closer."

The Flock

A sudden noise 
and the 
flock takes 
off into the 
swirling and 
diving together, 
uncannily mimicking 
each other and changing 
leadership without 
a moment of  
a continuous flow, 
as if 
they were of one mind 
and body 
instead of 
single beings.

A Splash Of Chalky Colour

Evening light shines
between the wires;
the sun warming up
the slowly cooling air
as bugs and birds
fly and crawl quickly
back home
before night falls
and other creatures
the cement and
We crouch on
our hands and knees,
chalk dust covering
our fingers
and the surrounding grass,
creating a
splash of colour on
the monotonous, grey
as we spend
the dwindling sunlight

I was drawing with chalk with my brother, which was a lot of fun. I've always liked chalk, as they give me a zen feeling of enjoying my temporary artwork. I was in a photographic mood, so I took some photos of our artwork on the curbs and the twilight. My personal favourite is the one on the very top. Enjoy the nice weather while we have it!

Remembering The Good

Sometimes we are 
so wrapped up 
in a small pessimistic 
world that we 
focus on the 
the bitter parting 
that we forget 
to thanks 
the things and 
wonderful experiences
that made this 
farewell so hard 
to do.

My favourite bookstore "The Flying Dragon" is closing at the end of the month, and I'm sad. But reading the sign they put up, they placed a little quote from A.A Milne (the author of Winnie the Pooh) that cheered me up (and inspired this poem) "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying good bye so hard." I really like that quote, as it shows you that we shouldn't dwell on the bad but realize and thank the good. With graduation coming up, I think the quote also fits in quite well with the bittersweet moment of leaving my middle school and going to high school.

Drum Beat

Feeling the rhythm through 
our feet, 
vibrations inching up 
our bodies as we 
to the cymbals, 
snare and beat, 
and the bass drum 
thumps start 
replacing our own 
Sticks bouncing 
and flying from part to 
the drummer moves not 
only their hands and 
feet but 
their whole body is 
possessed by the 
and they're soon just 
dancing to their 
own drum 

My brother takes drum lessons every Wednesday, and tonight was his end of semester performance/ showcase. There were other performers too, and I find that drumming is the most interesting and engaging as it can vary so much as well as having the beat of the drum almost replicate our own heartbeat.
