currently not in any school activities.
I like music, movies, tattoos, and nail polish.
my favorite sport is gymnastics.
I'm also addicted to online shopping and adventure time.
I plan on moving to California or South Carolina and going to college
my favorite subject is history.
i like my middle name more than my first name.

Fire and Ice
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favour fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice

Neither Out Far Nor In Deep
The people along the sand
All turn and look one way.
They turn their back on the land.
They look at the sea all day

The Soldier
He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it ploughed the dust.
If we who sight along it round the world,
See nothing worthy to have been its mark,
It is because like men we look too near,
Forgetting that as fitted to the sphere,
Our missiles always make too short an arc.
They fall, they rip the grass, they intersect
The curve of earth, and striking, break their own;
They make us cringe for metal-point on stone.
But this we know, the obstacle that checked
And tripped the body, shot the spirit on
Further than target ever showed or shone

all poems by Robert Frost

dark
black, scary
strengthening, darkening, frightening
Dart Vader, night, light, paper
lightening, blinding, brightening
clean, crisp
light

dead
old, still
lying, unmoving, shrinking
coffin, gravestone, food, home
dancing, growing, standing
new, fat
Alive
