Dear the education sytem
Dear the education system,
You have so many faults, let's list them,
First mental illness, creeps through your gates,
We all need help now, before it's too late

Our classrooms are dirty, conquered with disease,
And we're meant to pass our exams with ease?

Time Machine
In the midst of my sweet childhood days
I came across a gorgeous machine.
It was known by different names
But I called it my time machine.

A big roar, heard in the beginning
When I watchfully switched it to life.
I was in the middle...Read More

Do you know the rules of time? 
Well, it will take a while
Please wait for me to start
11:59 separates day from night 
Midnight is morning with 
A gray moon in the black sky
And afternoon start at 12:01 pm

Every second counts...Read More

The word is most commonly used,
Mental agony and headaches with which it is diffused.

Starting from small kids to the old and aged,
Everyone complains of this as the root of unhappiness,
God knows eventually infants will possess this, I am afraid.

A Guy Name Forknife
There was once a guy named Forknife
He played Fortnite for a fortnight
He disregarded his schoolwork
Because he was doing “homework”
He’s out on the streets with frostbite.

Premium Member A Single Mother Speaks

Each weekday morning, 6:15, we have to hit the floor.
We dress, have breakfast, feed the pets, and then we're out the door.

When I return from work each day, there's housework to be done;
so I zoom into clean-up mode. Now watch...Read More

Not Every Day is Perfect

I took my pad to the park today. 
I wanted to find an idea for a book.

Premium Member Wha Hoo
Wha Hoo!

My grandmother was a quiet woman. 
She was not the kind, to go out often. 
A church picnic, and or a family gathering, 
All were just fine. 

Yet, her calm demure could be disturbed. 
Not easily mind you.

We talked today after a long, long time.

Gee, how we blame our culture for starting this!
Oh, how ignorant can we be!
We blame men as evil and macho?
Yet we drooled when younger over Ralph.  Macchio.

How great it is to get...Read More

The suspension of freedom what I fear

I want the day off to lie in the grass and
watch the deer in the distance.
I know it’s selfish, but I don’t care.
School can call a sub.
Other teachers have had them.
I can too. This one time.

A new house or car do not compare to the little things

A pancake with a happy face

I hate homework
it steal my free time
Who has time to spend all afternoon
with ink that drips and leaves large stains

Run barefoot with
cowboys and Indians

I wanted an easy approach
And I was laughing all along…

At least I thought I did.

That freedom is...Read More
