CANCER WARRIOR

When I was young, I lived fighting cancer.
When I was 13, I knew I was sick.
Cancer stopped me from being a dancer.
My chemotherapy made me go ick
It was scary at first but I was brave.
I spend many days in a Cancer ward
I prayed to the good Lord, my life to save
Without their support it would be so hard.
I met a close friend who had passed away 
She told me to be strong, and keep fighting. 
I still remembered her every darn day.
So I never backed down, never hiding
I thank my Family for their support.
Any signs of cancer, I should report.

MY LOVER

My lover, my lover 
Where could he be?
I’ve been traveling so far to find you
At the end of the road where we shall meet. 
I’ll promise you that we will make it through --
He’s tall and handsome 
Cute and amazing.
He calls me beautiful and gorgeous, too.
My world was bright and it wasn’t a fling. 
My sky was dark, and now it’s baby blue. 
His voice is soothing and stress relieving 
The love is unconditional to me --
His words are charming and motivating 
In my brown eyes, God made us meant to be
My love for you will never fade away
As long as you are here for me to stay.

INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE:  Thy will be loved.

PAINT CHIP

July was chilly blue
Sitting on the chair with an untied shoe
Wondering what I should do.
Found a treasure map
Under a sand trap --
I was on my way to the shipyard
When I forgot my card.
Into the infinite deep sea
It was dark like a tea.
At last I found it now --
It's time to flee.

INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE:  Do what you love.  Don’t let anyone stop you form achieving it.

SATURDAYS

Saturdays
Usually start with brushing my teeth
But I mostly sleep in --
It’s fun.
Saturdays are amazing 
I wouldn’t ask for much
No exact time to wake up
Never really grumpy
It’s the best day
Out of the week.

INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE:  Saturdays are the best day of the week, because relaxing can relieve stress!

What Matters to Me

My name is Aurianna Morellano
and I am full filipino
But I was born and raised on Guam
I love the food here
I love the beautiful beaches
I love the hot sun
I still love being filipino
No I don’t eat dog
No I am not a FOB

I know my culture likes balut
But I don’t like that
I like the juicy BBQ
And the different types of kelaguen
We have the most beautiful sunsets
and the most beautiful island

INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE:  What I love is what matters to me.

GUMMY BEARS

It's so dull and lonely
It's like time is moving slowly
Everything I see is gray
OMG! It's so boring today
I don't know what to do anymore
It is not the day I hoped for
But then I hear my mother arrive
Then I feel like I'm becoming alive
I quickly descend from the stairs
To see my mother with a pack of gummy bears
Then suddenly life became so colorful
And I became hopeful

INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE:  Enjoy the little things in your life.

HEY PAPA

Papa I miss you
Cause you were the glue
To our family of four
The family I longed for
Without you here 
My head feels unclear
So come back to us
So there won't be a fuss
I hope to see you soon
So there won't be a fuss
I hope to see you soon
So you can make me another animal balloon
Remember I'll love you forever 
And I'll talk to you whenever
