Seeds… By: Lucy Urdahl

You can see where the seeds have been planted,
They are hollow, empty, desolate beings,
Tears are hidden under the blanket of eyelids,
A fake smile has been painted on their mouths.

Now the seeds begin to grow, not sprouting,
just slowly rising through the confinement of the “soil”,
It’s creating a bigger hole, tearing them from the inside out,
They still push on, hoping it’ll die off without love and nourishment.

It keeps growing -growing and growing- it’s at that flimsy film now,
It pushes, then you can hear a faint pop,
It’s broken through, it’s finally ripped.

The tears now escape,
They ask why, why, why, why,
They refuse to be comforted,
because to be comforted will set new seeds,
And that is not a good thing.

It’s growing now,
Making the rip larger,
so large that it looks almost as if it’ll break in two,
They wish it would, because they can then go numb.

It ripped, it tore, it broke,
It’s just a broken thing now,
Sure it still pumps blood,
But that’s the only purpose now.

Broken in two,
Broken from sorrow,
Broken from love,
Broken hearts always cause pain…

Go, Dog Go

When I was little i could not get enough of one book. This book was Go, Dog Go! by P. D. Eastman. It was the most colorful book I had ever seen. Every single color imaginable to the eye. It was also entirely about dogs, my favorite thing in the world. The thing was, all the dogs were different. It had blue dogs, green dogs, yellow dogs, red dogs, blue dogs, black dogs, white dogs, black and white dogs, tall dogs, short dogs, fast dogs and slow dogs! While i had it I would spend hours attempting to pick out a thing I had not noticed before. I would then force my mother to read it to me before bed EVERY  night. She would even teach me to read some of the words! Eventually, I could read it all by myself. I love reading and dogs. This book incorporated both! I’m sure that this is why I love them. If i hadn’t had this book, I worry I might have realized my love for dogs. Not to mention reading. Without this very book you see in the video, I would be a very -VERY- different person.
