Walk Of Shame

Walk Of Shame

Did you see that girl walk by?
I can tell, she got a guy
It's 9am, her hair's a mess
Sunday morning in a party dress?

Mascara run, lipstick smeared
She thought, this hour, all coasts were cleared
Oh but no, her I did see
And as she stumbled, she saw me

High heels on, cell in hand
Back to the dorms, she walked on Grand
Walk of shame, oh how you expose
The true nature of the hoes

Guys wake up to chill on their lawn
As freshmen girls grudgingly pursue on
Calling out, "Well how was your night!?"
Girls wish their walk was out of sight

I just laugh and point them out
More so notifying all via shout
"Walk of Shame, that is you!"
These young girls, they've got no clue

The ones who get it, then take off
Again next weekend, it's never enough
Get any guy, hooking up's their game,
But each time regretting the walk of shame.

You might think I judge too hard
Not giving them the innocent card
I shouldn't talk, I'm such a hypocrite
That was me yesterday morning, I will admit.

Conflict of Self-Interest

By: Amy

I need  to study, cannot go out...
‘BUT THAT PARTY I HEARD ABOUT!’
I’m so behind, I simply must work...
‘BUT THERE’S A KEG! WHAT A GREAT PERK!’

I have a paper, and test real soon...
‘BUT THERE’S TOMORROW, JUST WAKE AT NOON!’
I can’t take a hangover on a Sunday...
‘BUT THE PARTY TONIGHT’S 281 HATHAWAY!’

I’ve so much concern, my GPA’s sunk...
‘ALL THE MORE REASON I SHOULD GET DRUNK!’
I’ll be too tired, the night gets so late...
‘CAN’T STALL LONGER; THE PARTIES WON’T WAIT!’

Really, grades worry me, school’s been tough...
‘BUT THINK OF THE GUYS, SO HOT, SO BUFF!’
THIS IS TRUE! MY DECISION IS RIGHT!
‘TIME TO GO OUT FOR ONE HELL OF A NIGHT!’

Living debate

Today I thought of all my stress
Causing me such an unrest
So much to think that I had thought
Would it be better to live or not?

Get this straight: I'm no cutter
No pill taker; def. not a jumper
I'm not killing myself- get that straight
Just explaining today's living debate

I hate the fact I suck at school
No discipline in me for easy rules
'Do the work, earn good grades'
I failed to do so; a whole year fades

My freshman year; man I $*#%ed up
Too much partying, boys and stuff
Taken for granted just how hard
Barely passing for my report card

I ruled today I just must live
My life, to the fullest, and to give
Back to all who help me to stay
Family, friends, defining me to claim nay.

Nay, I will never end early my years
Selfish would it be; no other word more clear
For people who care and have to deal
If I were gone; their lifelong empty feel

Not being conceded; I'm not all that
I just couldn't ever leave someone like that
Abandonment, giving up, not me
I'll fight this challenge to get off AP*

Staying in school's now my number one
Everything comes second; last listed is 'Fun'
Focus on completing the work I need
Will help me cope with getting degree'd

From this message, please take away
The thought to never check out early your stay
Here on this earth, even when you're down
Think of your loved ones who'll always want you around.


*AP: Academic Probation- possibility of removal of university for poor grades

Just...

Just...


Just one night, that's all it took
Just one glance, that one first look. 
Just so cute, long, golden curls
Just lucky was I, you weren't swarmed by girls

Just one chat; about soccer and school
Just a few moments, I knew you were cool
Just like that, it became so easy
Just talking with you, refreshing and breezy

Just your smile, warm and bright
Just being around you felt kinda right
Just laughing along at our stupid puns
Just drinking together was so much fun

Just when I thought, you weren't interested
Just took my hand,  and you compressed it
Just that squeeze was such a feel
Just holding you then felt surreal

Just one smoke, okay, maybe two
Just in the cupboard, I first kissed you
Just after we finished, a tad bit high,
Just had a feeling, it wasn't goodbye

Just in the hall, in an embrace
Just the look upon your face
Just your charm, you've got a knack
Just from your words: "hey, let's walk back"

Just a thought, of that night we shared
Just thinking back, I saw how you cared
Just makes me want, to see how it'd be
Just to try dating, trying you and me

Just a thought, not to gush,
Just going out, there'd be no rush
Just casual as friends, I'll hope for more
Just that much, I feel is good for my core 

Just rereading, all that I've said
Just makes me dizzy- too many words for my head
Just looking at this, understand this part:
Just know that this all, came from my heart

Little Sister

Little Sister 


Little sister, how might I say, 
You never cease to brighten my day
From the house that was next door
I can't imagine being blessed more

Not by blood, but deep in heart
We've grown so close, we are one part
A part of which that in my soul,
My dear little sister, half my whole

From young age, we always hung out
Playing together, talking about
All the things we want to do
Dear little sister, if you only knew

If you only knew, in an amount
The joys you bring, too many to count
Your smile, your laugh, you're so tight
Personality, simply put, easygoing and light

So glad was I to live so close
To someone who I've loved most
And with time being as it is
Away at school, it's you I miss

As we ichat, at this very time
And I struggle to think of a rhyme
Moments ago, me rapping you songs
You laughing and saying, "Amy, so wrong..."

So here we are, my poem at last
I must admit, this came along fast
But Kara each word is honest and true
My dear little sister, I love you.
