My Poetry

Grandma Faye.

She was carried down to the earth on the sun on a summer day in May. And she was carried up to heaven on the moon on a cold, dark, night. She appeared in my dream one night, adorned in a purple dress, eating an orange Creamsicle. She birthed thirteen children, six boys and seven… Continue reading Grandma Faye.

Summer, Summer, Summer Time!

Drake was looking for revenge all summer '16, but I was looking for adventure, new experiences, fun, family time, and relaxation...

To Sister’s House

To Sister's House With a beautiful landscape flickering by like a slideshow out of the car's clear window. Roaming past rows and rows of luscious green grass and crowds of corn fields. With Dirt raining down on the pick up trucks and cars of the nearby homeowners like confetti at a parade.   To sister's… Continue reading To Sister’s House

I have been a Belieber since I was in eighth grade. Six years later, I am now twenty, and I still have… Continue reading My life has almost reached full completion.
