Poetry- May PPOW

Rikki is a happy person,
Even when she’s at her worst.
She can be shy at first,
But she can be reversed.

She is very clever
And knows all about triangles being obtuse.
We play Hay Day together
And I sell her juice.

She is funny
And likes to spend money.
She is very pretty
And she likes to go to the city.

Bella is amazing
And is done with phasing.
She is attractive
And very active.

She say’s she magical
And also fantastical.
She is obsessed with ice,
And likes to eat rice.

Ashley is awesome.
She likes to watch flowers blossom
And likes to act like a possum.

I met her at a basketball game
She was wearing a One Direction t-shirt;
It was a big shame.

Lizzie is a little crazy,
But she is bright as a daisy.
She is always happy
And never crabby,
Lizzie is extremely smart
And has a big heart.

She adores cats
And loves to wear hats.
All she does is laughs
And follows the right paths.

Hailey has cute clothes;
She doesn’t like to share
Even though we’re pretty close.
Everyone loves her hair
And it’s not even fair.

Jordyn is a beast at soccer
And it’s not a shocker.
We share a locker
And she’s a talker.

Chloe is my best friend;
She will be here till the end.
We don’t see each other often,
But she’s never forgotten.

She is my twin
And likes to grin.
She’s blonde
And we have a special bond.

Ayla is very shy.
You’ll never see her cry.
She tried tipping my chair over,
But it’s okay, I forgive her.

Megan is a great singer.
We like to sing together
And make fun of each other.

She used to pull my hair out;
She’d like to hear me shout.
Trista always shoots me with her gun,
While I scream and run.

I always say I hate her,
But I really do love her.
We’ve been best friends since day one.

You could say shes sweet,
But only sometimes.
We may get into crimes,
But at least we’re having a good time.

Lauren likes to eat
And she stays petite.
She always tweets
And she stays off the streets.

Val loves yellow
And she is mellow.
She is the oldest one
And likes to have fun.

She cut my eyelashes
And I wanted to burn her to ashes.
It’s okay though
Because they grow.


“When I went to school the teachers gave us an assignment, and she said what do you want to be when you grow up? I said to be Happy. She said that I didn’t understand the assignment. I told her that she didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon
I thought that the he just wanted to be happy and didn’t want a job that made him to be not happy.
“Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside, but it doesn’t help if you look ugly on the inside unless you eat the makeup.” Audrey Hepburn
I thought that this means that nobody is perfect. It also means that if you try to be beautiful on the outside, it doesn’t mean that you are a good person.
“I was born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection.” - Drake
This quote means that everybody makes mistakes, and nobody is perfect.
“Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it's stupid.” - Albert Einstein
If you judge someone or something that they can’t do they will feel stupid because they
can’t do it.
“Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy, so that they learn the
value of things, not the price.” - Mahatma Gandhi
This quote means you should be happy with what you have, and you don’t have to have
expensive things to be happy.  It would be nice to have expensive stuff, but what is the point of having a Camaro over a 2005 Ford Taurus? If you have the Camaro, it is much more expensive. You might cherish that more because it was so expensive. The Taurus you might have better memories with your buds driving through the corn fields or just taking a nice drive around town. Now with a Camaro, you probably won’t drive it through a corn field, but I bet that you would drive it around town just to show off that you have a Camaro. You don’t have to have lots of money, learn to be happy with life especially your life.
“Freedom isn’t worth it if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.” Mahatma Gandhi.
You aren't free if you can’t make mistakes because everyone makes mistakes and you can’t help that you make mistakes.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl. whatever you do, just keep moving forward.” - Martin Luther King Jr.
That means that there is always something that is going to be in your way, but you just have to find a way around it and keep moving forward.
“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” - Thomas Edison
You can never give up on anything, until you get where you are going or what you want. Then after that, you keep going for more success.
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” - Muhammad Ali
This quote means that you have to take risks for you can accomplish the harder things in life.

“I’ve failed many many many many times in my life... and that's why I succeed” - Michael Jordan

“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones that are worth suffering for.” - Bob Marley
They’re special people in your life you that need to choose because they are those special people that will care for you.
“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your life. There are no limits. There are only stages and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” Bruce Lee

This quote means just because you hit a stage doesn’t mean that you can’t go past it. You just have to keep trying to go beyond and just keep going and going.

March PPOW

Damian Curry
Damian Curry was only two years old when his father left him. He lived in a shack with his mom outside of LA. He always wanted to be a basketball player. He never left his house because he was afraid he would get shot by the Bloods. One day when he got enough courage to leave his house and go to the park, he ran as fast as he could. He thought he was gonna lose his shoes; he was going so fast, but he wasn’t running fast at all. He would go to the park everyday and shoot hoops. He had no one to play.
One day a bunch of twenty year olds were about to play a pick-up game. They needed one more player. Damian was only 13 and they were 20. He was so happy though, he could finally play a game. On the first play of the game, he got the tip off. He ran down the court and beat everyone to the hoop and went for a layup, but realized when he jumped he could dunk. He flew through the air and did a 360 dunk and slammed it down. Everyone just stood there in astonishment. One dude came running up to Damian and asked him to do it again so he could record it. He did it again with the guy recording. The dude posted it on Vine and in an instant it went viral. Everyone was commenting and asking “Who is this?” After about three months of the games going on Damian decided to try and play for a local traveling team. He made it without a doubt in the coaches mind, Damian took his team all the way to the championship. They won the whole thing with Damian averaging 38 points, 13 assists, and 11 rebounds. He did the best anyone has ever done and impressed every scout in the league, but one scout really liked Damian. He asked Damian to come and practice with the Warriors. Damian was so excited. He ran back to his shack and told his mom. His mom was so happy for him. Mostly because if Damian went pro, she would have a new house. Damian got a good nights sleep and went to practice the next day.
He showed up the next day in his J’s and was ready to ball. He flew through the dribbling drills and was ready to show what he was made of in a scrimmage. He was on the B team and had to face the starters. The B team won the tip and gave it to Damian right away. He flew right past Klay Thompson and slammed it over Stephen Curry. The coaching staff just erupted and was amazed by what they saw. They eventually cooled down and got back on with the game. It was halftime and Damian already had 18 points. He went into the 3rd quarter and dominated everyone. By the end of the game Damian had scored 37 points. More than anyone in that game! The coaches agreed to let him play on the team, but he’d  have to earn his starting position. For the next six weeks Damian was in the gym everyday shooting hoops. The coaches started to realize that Damian was the only one putting time in the gym. On opening day the starting lineup was announced.
Coach Kerr said, “ Steph, point guard, Klay, Shooting Guard, Damian, Shooting Forward, David, Power Forward, Andrew, Center.
Damian was so happy that he could start in his first NBA game. Once the announcer named off all the starters, Damians mom began to cry tears of joy. She finally got her new mansion she had been dreaming of her whole life. Damian was pumped to get out there and show what he was made of. The first quarter wasn't what he was expecting. Steph was shooting everything and Damian never got the ball. When the second quarter came around Damian was feeling it. He made his first three shots and was on fire. He caught a lob from Steph that made the crowd erupt. You could hardly hear yourself think it was so loud. The Cav’s had to call a timeout to get their team back together. It was Damians time to shine on defense now. No one could stop LeBron from scoring. Damian was the last to get to guard LeBron. He completely shut him down for the rest of the game. LeBron only scored once in the fourth quarter. It was on a fast break, and Damian wasn’t guarding him. Damian finished the game with 16 points, 9 assists, and 3 rebounds. Steph was named player of the game with 38 points with a double double. Coach Kerr was very proud of how only a rookie could take control of a big game like that. It was about half way through the season when Damian got the phone call he wanted his whole life. He was being selected for the NBA all star game! He also got invited to participate in the dunk contest. Damian was thrilled to be apart of such a big thing and compete against the league's best team. He went into the dunk contest and killed the competition. His first dunk was a 360, between the legs, windmill slam for a perfect score. His second dunk, he dunked over the tallest man in the world and went between the legs and tomahawked slammed it. He got another perfect score.
Damian won the dunk contest and was pumped to play in the NBA all star game. He completely dominated the all star game and got MVP. By the end of the month, he had a smokin hot girlfriend. He bought a Bugatti and built a new house. His mom got her own special room, and she loved every second of it. She ended up becoming really sick and died later in the year, but that’s besides the fact. Damian was a stud and dominated anyone who went up against him. Damian is the perfect man, anyone in the world would want to be. He won the award for The Best Man in the world. After 19 seasons in the NBA Damian had won 7 championships and 8 MVP awards. Damian died after he was buying milk in the market and got shot up by a gang. R.I.P.

Months- April PPOW

The snow will blow,
And the grass won’t grow.
We pray for no more snow,
but it continues to fall below.

The second month,
And also the shortest of the year.
Valentines Day is here,
And love starts to appear.

Groundhog Day lies on the second;
We will see when spring begins.
Every third Monday of February
Presidents Day takes place.

The month of March
Has just blown in
To say that spring
Will soon begin.

St. Patricks day arrives
And is filled with luck.
Wear green on this day
or it will suck.                                                                                                                            

Rain falls from the sky,
And I hold my umbrella up high.
When the Sun starts to glow,
The flowers start to grow.

Out comes the Easter Bunny;
He’s here to hide your eggs.
When Earth Day comes around,
people pick up around their town.

May is the month
Of sunshine and flowers.
Birds in their nests.
And one or two showers.

The Sun is warm,
And the wind is chill.
Spring is so beautiful,
it gives us thrill.

Long green weeks
that never end.
School is out,
And time is ours to spend.

We go to baseball games,
and watch them swing.
The pool is open
And the birds sing.

The fourth of July,
Red, white, and blue.
A memory of independance,
With fireworks and flags too.

School begins,
And days get longer.
Leaves start to fall,
And trees stand tall.

August brings sheaves of corn,
And farmers start to harvest crops.

Warm September brings the fruit,
And hunters begin to shoot.
Shadows start to appear,
And days become more clear.

Out come the pheasants,
And animals go into hibernation;
Hiding in a dark location.

Finally Halloween arrives,
Children flood the streets in costumes,
And teens stay in their rooms,

Nights come early,
And the sunrise comes late.
Snow falls by the gate,
And winter comes fairly.

Thanksgiving takes place.
Family and friends give thanks,
With effortless grace.

The snow drifts down from the sky;
It sparkles and shines.
It keeps snowing through the night,
All bright and white.

Christmas is here,
But soon it will disappear.
People get presents,

And here comes a new year.
