Song Lyric Poem

Daddys final stand

Daddy laid reachin for heartbeats

Today I pray he's back 

Tourn my lonesome traveler wind into heartbreak

Ole warm tennesee whiskey talking to me

Black Out Poem

A Hero not a Human

After today what will the future hold

Because greatness is becoming more bold 

Countless people looing for there fame

Dose anybody even think of adjusting their aim

Even the biggest people look for a bigger ending

For those people also had their small beginings

ABC Poem

Fame

 

Cinquain

Natural Terror

Nature

Beautiful, Terrufying

Shining, Ripping, Roaring

Respected for her magisty

Enviroment

 

Stalking, sneaking cat

Preying on the slow gazell

Ready to pounce fast

Haiku

Cat through the brush

Shape Poem

The Forbis Family

 

Steve

A hardworking, ambitious, genius

A husband and fauther of four

Who loves his friends and family 

Who is happy with his life

Who is fearful of his children not recieving the best

Graduated as an engineer and has a wife and four kids

Who wants to experience joy and success for his kids

Born in Booneville, AR

Forbis

 

Bio Poem

Steve 

Lost in the sauce

A world left in despare

Need of help

Done with life

Endless Schoolwork 

Never enough time

Acrostic Poem

LANDEN's Life

Elegy

School

Schoolwork, a scorce of endless stress

where sleep is non existant

where dreams do not come

 

School ,where dispare and hopelessness thrives

where my mind is locked for hours

How I wish for nap time once again

 

School, what disapointment I feel every monday

Endless work compleating my circle of distress. 

Slitering Twards me 

The Arrow headed serpant

fills my veins with fear

Back back backing away slow

Driven by fear I escape

Tanka

The Serpant

I took a trip to Grandma's you see

And what a suprise for her to see me

She told me all about how I've changed. 

From the tips of my toes, to the thoughts in my brain

From how I walk, the the way that I talk

And How I sway, to a beat that may play

But one thing she said would never change with time 

Is the love we share, both her's and mine. 

List Poem

A Visit to Grandmas

There was a woman who could not hear

And so blind that she could not steer

So her licens was prevoked

Until she had awoke 

But she had to wait another year

Limerick

A blind old woman 

Senryu

Chicken for my Men

Long leged Chicken

Your eggs so tasty

My family enjoys

Epituph

 

The Final Race

I have fought my fight, and I have ran my last race.

But above all, I did it before God. 

Tree

Sturdy, Tall

Growing, swaying, Towering

Covering hillsides, Supporting all that is underneith

Growing, falling, supporting

Mountan

Diamante
