I remember from 2005-2007 I had a love affair with Norway. I loved everything Norwegian. Here's a poem I wrote in 10th grade about myself. It's comedic gold.
I was born the fourth of July in 89.
My hair is dark brown, straight as a line.
I love music by Motley Crue, Pantera, and Alice In Chains,
I don't like dentists - they cause too much pain.
I love history, especially the Civil War.
I like playing in the rain when it pours.
I love to play with cats,
But I hate wearing hats.
I want to pursue a career in rhetoric.
I am also bad with mathematics.
I like writing stories,
Especially about life after the 1840s.
I want to visit Norway and the South,
But plane trips make me pout.
I love German culture and speaking,
And a place to live in Dresden I am seeking.
Public speaking gives me the jitters;
I hope to make it glitter.
I like everything clean,
So if I find dirt, I can get pretty mean.
I like playing in the snow,
Until it chills my toes.
As we take a moment of silence, let us reflect with this poem I wrote in homage to this Norwegian singer I used to love (I wrote this in 10th grade as well):
If Earth was cloaked in impenetrable darkness,
And humankind disappeared.
Not a single bird or animal would remember.
And Spring herself, awakening from Darkness,
Would never know we were gone.
