Poem: Love Forever

24 May

Love is like the essence of a rose,

Appearing delicate and beautiful

Resting easy with confidence

Enticing with it’s aroma

However, it may be bitter sweet

Love may prick you,

Love may change you,

You worry, you fret

In the end the bud blooms

Beautiful, Noble, Sweet

Waiting on Wednesday

23 May

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by Harper

NEVER LET ME GO meets HIS DARK MATERIALS in a beautiful, haunting YA debut, the first book in The Hybrid Chronicles.

Eva and Addie started out the same way as everyone else—two souls woven together in one body, taking turns controlling their movements as they learned how to walk, how to sing, how to dance. But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy and Eva was declared gone. Except, she wasn’t…

For the past three years, Eva has clung to the remnants of her life. Only Addie knows she’s still there, trapped inside their body. Then one day, they discover there may be a way for Eva to move again. The risks are unimaginable–hybrids are considered a threat to society, so if they are caught, Addie and Eva will be locked away with the others. And yet…for a chance to smile, to twirl, to speak, Eva will do anything.

The Cracks in the Floor

23 May

This is one of my very first poems. I started writing poetry about a year ago.

The Cracks in the Floor

The human race walks all over me, they don’t think I have feelings

Even though people want to make their life seem picture perfect, I can see their uneasy souls

The thick cloud of pessimistic people suffocate me

Some people talk about me as if I am not right under their feet hearing every last whisper

Luckily there are people in my life to make me shiny and polished again

Many say the hate and ignorance of others will never go away like an immense plot of darkness

As every day goes by it makes that outcome seem more valid

I’m always sitting in one place never moving like a person stuck in the white noise of life, always hearing the same negative things

My life may seem dense but I know there is always something positive to look forward to

I wish my life was a heterogeneous mixture, always made up of different components, but anymore my life is only made of one, sadness

For those of you who favor hate, just know the truth about what you do

I hope you are having a fabulous day and feel free to email me any of your work!

Book Review: Divergent

By: Veronica Roth

Divergent

By: Veronica Roth
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian
5 stars
This book is one of my favorite books to date. It is a constant page turner. Every chapter leaves you longing for more.
The book focuses around a girl name Beatrice. She lives in the Abnegation faction. At the yearly choosing ceremony she is forced to make a decission between choosing a different faction or staying with the one she was born into. This decision will effect her whole life. If she chooses another faction she will be forced to separate completely from her family. She takes a test that tells which faction she is fit for and finds the results to be unsettling.
I would recommend this book to anyone! It has action, suspense, and romance. The books tells the story very vividly and clear. The book is very well written and worded. I was highly impressed with it and it was the authors first book. She has recently released book number two called Insurgent.
A Faction is where people live together who value the same thing.
The Factions~
Abnegation: selfless
Amity: Peace, friendship, and harmony
Candor: honesty
Dauntless: fearless
Erudite: Knowledge
