Poetry

First, one person so far has gotten my user name on CC correct. Once two more people get it I will add my user name to my contact info.

I forgot to mention this before, the Passages series covers have been redone. Here is Darian's Rise.

Odyssey Connection:Today in Sociology we watched the Dead Poets Society. It made me think of different poems mentioned in Odyssey. Heres a couple that I know of.

I Like Pants- Charles Edward Thompson-From Poetry in Slow Motion

I put on pants every day
To go to school or to play
I like pants
Sometimes I wear pants of blue
Or brown to go with my shoe
I like pants
Sometimes I feel sorry for ants
Because they can't wear pants
I like pants
Pants cover my legs so that I can go
Without them I would be cold I know
I like pants
I like them so.

Too Large's Poem-from Best Laid Plans

I was trapped
by the invisible walls of my faith
tricked by the idea that I could not escape
chained up in a ghetto where my father died
fooled into thinking I would never go outside
imprisoned by my friends who knew nothing but war
shackled to everything that had gone on before
I would always be here in this dead end life of mine
my heart turned back by a city limit sign
and yet...
and yet I now see a way out of my concrete jail
a new way to soften a heart that's grown stale
no longer cursed in this place for the wealth
no longer fighting with man or myself
I understand now what it takes to get real
if you wanna stand up you have to learn how to kneel
I surrender,
my weapons are down at my feet
Cause we'll never have freedom when there's blood on the street

That's all for now, this is Freddy Jay saying maybe I'll try writing a poem...
