R.I.P Michael Jackson

I KNOW THIS IS A FEW DAYS LATE CAUSE I WAS HAVING COMPUTER TROUBLE BUT R.I.P MICHAEL JACKSON YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE GREATEST. I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THAT HE IS GONE CAUSE HIS DEATH WAS SO SUDDEN AND HE HAD SUCH AN IMPACT ON MY LIFE. EVEN THOUGH I WAS BORN YEARS AFTER HIS STARDOM TO FAME I STILL GREW UP LISTENING TO HIS MUSIC THANKS TO MY GRANDMOTHER AND MY MOTHER. ALL OF YOUR SONGS EVEN WITH THE JACKSON FIVE WERE ALL HITS EVEN IF THEY WERENT NUMBER ONE. I REMEMBER SPENDING HOURS AS A LIL KID TRYING TO DANCE LIKE HIM AND DO THE MOON WALK. NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT HIM NO ONE COULD DENY THAT HE WAS THE GREATEST ARTIST THAT EVER LIVED. HE WAS NOT JUST THE KING OF POP BUT HE WAS THE KING OF EVERY GENRE OF MUSIC THAT HE EVER VENTURED IN. I WILL ALWAYS TRULY MISS HIM AND REGRET THAT HE WASN'T ABLE TO DO HIS LAST CONCERT OR CD. NO MATTER WHAT HIS LEGACY WILL LIVE ON FOREVER.

~ANGEL FROM HEAVEN

GOD SENT ME AN ANGEL FROM ABOVE TO COMFORT ME WITH HAPPINESS AND TO SHOWER ME WITH LOVE.
THIS ANGEL OF MINE IS THE ONE I ADORE.
I KNOW THAT IF HE LEAVES ME MY HEART WILL BE TORN.
HE IS THE MOON, THE STARS, AND THE SUN.
BEING WITH HIM IS ALWAYS FUN.
HE BRINGS ME MANY EMOTIONS LIKE HAPPINESS, SADNESS, AND DEVOTION.
THIS ANGEL IS SPECIAL.
HE IS ONE OF A KIND.
FOR ME NOT TO SEE THIS I WOULD HAVE TO BE BLIND.
HE IS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME AND HE'S GIVEN ME LOVE TIMES TWENTY.
I JUST WANT TO THANK GOD FOR THIS ANGEL FROM HEAVEN.

SOUL MATE

MY BABY IS MY SOUL MATE AND IM GLAD IT'S HIM.**
JUST TO IMAGINE HIM IN MY MIND GETS ME SO HIGH.
IT'S LIKE I'M IN A WORLD WHERE ONLY ME AND HIM EXIST.
WHERE NO ONE CAN HURT US OR COME BETWEEN US.
MY HEART IS HIS HEART.
I GAVE HIM MY HEART BECAUSE I KNOW WITH HIM IT WILL NEVER GET BROKEN.
I KNOW MY BABY IS MY SOUL MATE CAUSE IF ANYTHING HAPPENED TO TO HIM I WOULD FEEL HIS PAIN.
WITHOUT HIM IT WOULD FELL LIKE MY OTHER HALF IS MISSING.
HE SETS MY SOUL AND SPIRIT FREE BY THE LOVE AND CARENESS I FEEL FROM HIM.
MY BABY IS MY SOULMATE AND IM GLAD IT'S HIM.

** THE BOY THAT THIS POEM WAS WRITTEN FOR IS NO LONGER IN MY LIFE. HE WAS MY FIRST HEART BREAK AND I AM CURRENTLY SINGLE.

~PAIN~

THE PAIN I FEEL INSIDE IS TEARING ME APART.
I HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE TO BLAME YET I CAN'T BLAME ANY.
IS IT THEIR FAULT THAT I KEEP STUFF DEEP DOWN INSIDE.
IS IT THEIR FAULT THAT WHEN THEY ASK WHAT'S WRONG I JUST SHAKE MY HEAD AND SAY NOTHING.
MAYBE I NEED HELP FOR THE PAIN INSIDE BUT I MIGHT JUST BLAME THEM FOR MAKING ME WORST.
THIS PAIN IS GETTING TO ME.
IT'S SQUEEZING MY LUNGS, NUMBING MY LEGS, AND FREEZING MY BRAIN.
I HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE TO BLAME FOR MY PAIN YET I CAN'T BLAME ANY

POETRY

I REALLY LOVE WRITING POETRY AND EVERYONE I KNOW ALWAYS TELLS ME THAT MY POEMS ARE GOOD BUT I DON'T THINK THEIR GOOD ENOUGH. I DON'T REALLY LIKE LETTING PEOPLE READ THEM BECAUSE IM SCARED THAT THEIR GONNA SAY THAT ALL OF MY WORK IS GARBAGE. I JUST REALIZE THAT IF I WANT TO BE A SUCCESSFUL WRITER I HAVE TO GET FEEDBACK ON MY WORK AND NOT BE AFRAID TO SHOW IT OFF. BECAUSE OF THAT STARTING TOMORROW IM GONNA PUT AT LEAST ONE OF MY POEMS UP HERE TO BREAK OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE

RAPPELING

thursday for lab for r.o.t.c we had to rappel down the side of a building on campus. i did this before at summer camp but the tallest i rappeled from was fifty feet the wall at school had to be at least sixty. to make matters worst we were outside while the wind was blowing. the first time as soon as i stepped onto the roof i started crying cause i was freaked out i mean i saw the top of the football stadium from there. the sergeant wouldn't let me go the first time because he said the rope didn't look right going through my harness. turns out he was doing it the way for right handed people not left. when it was time for me to go down and i had to stand on the ledge i started crying agian and he kept asking me did i want to do it and i kep telling him yes. i hate going over the ledge cause as soon as you do it feels like your falling and that is the scariest feeling ever. going down was so much fun though i was gonna go again but he started raining so i couldn't

Paint Ball

yesterday me and some people from r.o.t.c went out to play paintball which was the fucking best ever i might add. in all it was twelve of us and i was the only girl but i stuck it through with the guys.the worst part about it was that it started raining so we had to play most of our rounds inside. the good thing was that we played inside an abandoned building that used to be an insane asylum that is rumored to be haunted. one team was on the second floor while the second team was in the basement and we met or engaged on the first floor. those rounds were crazy cause it was so many rooms that u could hide in and hard for people to see u it was crazy i kept getting shot even after i was dead which hurted like hell espically since it was simi close range. i ended up getting six briuses one one both arms another on the side of my stomach and three on my right thigh two right next to each other. we played capture the flag in the woods and that was even funnier cause we had more room to play but we had to lay down in the wet cold mud my team lost both times during that and we had one final match before we left inside the house we used a human shield to win that game cause he wasn't afraid to get shot. im offically addicted to paintball now i want to play it all the time. i plan on getting my own paintball set before i go back home and im gonna have some fun i can't wait.

BUT THE GOOD THING IS TOMORROW I GET TO PLAY PAINT BALL WITH SOME PEOPLE FROM R.O.T.C. WERE GONNA BE IN AN ABANDONED BUILDING AND EVERYTHING. P.S I'M STILL SINGLE WHICH IS AMAZING THAT I AM FOR THIS LONG BECAUSE I HAVEN'T BEEN SINGLE FOR YEARS BUT IT FEELS SO GOOD. ON THE DOWN SIDE BEING SINGLE GETS LONELY SOMETIMES.

Physical Training/Tactical Training Day

ok so today since im in R.O.T.C (army) i had to do a physical training test also known as PT at 5:30 in the morning. my first one i completely failed it i only did nine push ups twenty four sit ups and my run in twenty eight minutes and fifty five seconds ( i was the last one to finish of course). this time i actually finished the run in twenty two minutes and thirty five seconds and did thirty six sit ups, unfortunatly i only did ten push ups because i lost my balance(WTF) and to make things worst i probably still failes the test because according to the army it still sucks. Going back to last saturday we had tactical training day. at 4:45 in the morning i had to be at the R.O.T.C building where we recieved our plastic M-16s and MREs which is the nasiest food you could ever eat. i had bbq ribs and a beef patty and they tasted exactly the same (like something somebody threw up and put back into the bag. anyway at 5:30 we had to ruck march like four miles with ruck bags on our back mine was like 10 pounds filled with unnessacary things that we wasn't gonna use. bad enough we had to march in the streets when its still dark outside but then we had to walk through woods that had ditches in them and was flooded with water i almost sprained my ankle falling into a hole that i couldn't see. at about 7:00 we was finally able to rest in the cold hard wet ground (lucky us) it started raining. im like wtf just completly fml cause im tired hungrey cold and now wet. we had to do stix lanes with different scenarios like ambushing, taking over a bunker, taking communication devices. those were fun we had to run through trees climb hills and alot of things but i had fun with that. the part i didn't like was when i had to pee in the woods (do u know how hard that is for a girl). next we had to do day and night land navigation.day nav was cool but night nav had me scared out of my mind. i seen to many scary movies i know wat happens in the woods at night and its not fun. i almost died going up a hill that was about thirty feet and almost falling from it. at the end of the day i went home with scrapes and bruises all over my body and three ticks. those things hurt like hell to take off but um yeah thats about it... so um i guess i'll write later.....uuuunnmmmm yeah soooo like bye

sterotypes

sterotypes need to stop immediatly i mean their stupid and a conversation that me and my friends had totally pissed me off ok so according to my friends (the ones that are black) im trying to be white or im a "oreo" because instead of knowing every single rap song and wearing urban gear everyday i would rather listen to alternative and wear preppy clothes. ok yeah so what i would rather listen to good charlotte and linkin park then some rapper rappin about the same thing that every rapper do. money sex cars clothes and jewlry sorry if i get bored with it. my other friends ( the white ones) totally agreed with me and said that it was stupid cause kids at thier school use to say that the white students were trying to be black cause they listened to rap. if your gonna be ignorant don't do it in public keep the comments to yourself . some people just have an open range of music that they like and i am one of them. its other sterotypes that need to be talked about but it would take a whole book to cover them all

first time

ok i signed up for this blog a few months ago but this is my first time actually writing something. since i m new to this i don't know exactly to write i guess i can go with how i feel my life is going right now. so my life is pretty good i have good friends im doing well in school and im pretty happy. my heart on the other hand is in horrible condition not in the medical sense but relationship wise. i mean i been hurt so many times and sometimes more than once by the same people. i can't help it though because i wear my heart on my sleeve and im a sucker for love. its just that when i really like someone or im in a relationship i put my all into it and in the end im always the one that get hurts. because of that i now suffer from depression and panic attacks. im currently single and right now for my sake i think that its for the best. right now im just scared to love again and have a very strong shield around my heart that i don't know when im gonna be strong enough to let it down. wow this is kind of depressing for a first blog but oh well shit happens
