An ode to NeurotransmittersAn ode to NeurotransmittersThe acetylcholine transmitters help with not only talking,They enable typing and breathing as well as walking,Dopamine makes you glad and move at will,But unbalanced levels can make you mentally ill,GABA inhibits and calms you down,When youre stressed from traffic downtown,Serotonin helps you stay asleep and awake,For imbalanced levels some pills you must take,Endorphins are like a natural drug,They ease the pain if punched in the mug.
DepartureDEPARTURE(An Exit poem)All things must end they cannot last foreverThe old mans words were a piercing realityOne I didnt want to hearOne I didnt want to faceWatching the last grain of sand leave the hour glassThe sun falls past the mountainsThe finishing of a books last pageEven our own lives will eventually endBut dont feel woeTake heart! Hold your head high!For all will live in ones memoryEven if the time itself passes by
My 1st Airplane RideMy 1st Air Plane RideIt would happen...soon, very soon.My child hood desire was a mere 2 hours awayAs I sat in the airport I inhaled the clean yet stale air.Then came a booming voice that echoedoff the walls like a rubber ball.I picked up my bags and went onwardInto the belly of the metal bird.My heartbeat quickened as I found my seatand looked out the plastic window.Waiting, Wondering, Watching.The Public Address boomed its instructionsSeat belts fastenedThe plane began to moveFaster, then fasterMy stomach left me as the plane lifted itselfMy ears were popping from the heightI looked out the windowAnd looked, and looked some moreAll I could see was white cloudsThen I saw trees and buildingsLooked like one big model train townAll anxiety melted awayAnd I looked forward to my next flight
Self PortraitSelf PortraitThe nice girl in the classThe one with the brown hairThe one with glassesShes not very tallWhat? Youre seventeen? Not thirteen?She nodded and said she was used to that.Then she left the store to another destinationThe defender in a soccer gameA former karate studentAn artist who loves to drawThese are some of what others seeA person who enjoys a good storyOne who enjoys laughing with othersShe usually means what she saysThese are my faces as seen by others
A MysteryA MysteryA Brick through the window,A clanging bell sounds,The foot steps pound through the night.
True StrengthTrue StrengthA woman who is a mother holds her childWhere there is poverty and rats run wildHer smile is great and is very wideA small hole in the wall lets the wind insideAs baby sleeps in glorious dreams so grandThe woman holds him in her handsWhile all around them makes all seem bleakThe strongest love makes it all seem weak
Just Because I'm A GirlJust Because Im a Girl Doesnt mean I play with dolls Doesnt mean Im obsessed with shoes Doesnt mean that Im boy crazy Just Because Im a Girl Doesnt mean I dont like football Doesnt mean I dont play video games Doesnt mean I dont know about cars Just Because Im a Girl Does that mean Im not that smart? Does that mean Im into frilly dresses? Does that mean Im always using makeup? Just Because Im a Girl!
