Family

Times with you, I love the most.

When we're together as a family,

We all come close.

Knowing that when time times get tough,

A simple smile or hug would do.

Our love for one another

Can never compare.

At the end of the day,     

You guys will always be there.

CIRCLES

Birth, life, death
One big circle.
It happens everyday,
We wake up to kiss the sun,
We go to bed and are captivated by the moon.
Continuously we are encased
By her circles. Light, dark, and light again
Another circle.
Circles, they have no beginning.
Circles, they have no end.
With humanity killing our biggest circle.
Our very own earth.
My question is,
Will we ever learn,
Will the world still turn,
Will our circle start again?
(c) Alyssa Speaker
Santa Rita, Guam

Inspirational message: Life has circles and unless we take care of our planet what we want to come back to us might not come back.

April is National Poetry Month


National Poetry Month*
Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month (NPM) is now held every April, when schools, libraries, publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, and poets around the country come together to celebrate poetry and its vital importance in American culture.  Thousands of businesses and organizations participate through festivals, readings, workshops, book displays, and various other events.

What is National Poetry Month?
30 Ways to Celebrate NPM
Celebration Highlights

In celebration of National Poetry Month, the following is a poem I wrote.  Enjoy!

MY POETRY

My imagination runs wild,
As I grab a pen and write away.
The emotions linger about,
Pushing me to set it free.
It shall be set free in the words that I write.
It shall be set free in the feelings that I express.
It shall be set free, just by knowing it is mine.
My own thoughts,
My own words,
My own feelings --
That in itself is poetry,
Whether it is liked by others or not;
I know this to be true,
That as long as it is dear to my heart,
It's as special as can be,
And no one can deny that it is poetry!

Lovely

It was heaven seeing you again.
I admire the beauty of your creation.
As I stand still and smell the peppery aroma floating in the air,
I enjoy every warm moment I can have with you.
Happy at the fact I am near you after a long period of time,
I sit in front of you as you glare straight at me.
Although the moments are always special,
The parting is always the hardest.
I do not think it will be easy to let you go.
Yet, I have to be strong and be patient for our next meeting.
Until then, I bid you farewell my dear bowl of spaghetti.

Road Ahead

One may say it is far reaching
One may say it can never be
All it takes is a little reach
And soon you will surely see.

Look deep within yourself
And you will certainly find
Exquisite talent and beauty of pure divine.

Embrace the endless possibilities
Embrace your naturalness
There is nothing without conquer
Do not despair or dismiss.

One step forward is all it takes
One step forward is what is preached
Make no mistake as you will receive
All it takes is a little reach.

Inspirational Message: You have the ability to accomplish all that is desired. Trust in yourself and you will prevail.
