Autumn Leaves- a poem

When all

is dying

those autumn

leaves

crunch

beneath

my feet as

a reminder of

home.

Of how many times

I would count

the leaves

on the trees.

How many

fell,

and how many

seem

to hang on.

Those trees

are me.

And my thoughts

are those

autumn leaves.

What a Surprise

What a surprise it is

to find love

in the smallest bits

of broken glass

and empty tea cups.

Just when

my heart was

torn in two

there you are to

sew it back together

and kiss away

the pain

that once left

me when the

hearts were

the favorite

shape of the nation,

all I could

find were

broken ones.

You’re there to

wipe the tears

from my eyes

and sing the songs

I’ve never heard.

Miles- a poem

Miles away

My heart

Stays

Healing from your

Wake

Of lies and crimes.

Miles away

Will you stay

Still in my mind.

Miles and miles

It seems my dreams

Will be

After I pick

Up those

Puzzle pieces

You left behind.

I wonder was this

Just a scheme

Or

Am

I

Dreaming?

Leaving the Moment-a poem

Tell me where

I can hide

from those

barren pastures

and dark

clouds looming

in the sky.

 

Tell me where I

can forget your

tortured face

until

nothing more

but a

memory

tucked in between

pages and songs.

 

Leaving that moment

behind me

and opening

some other

portal or

some other

estranged story

I left behind.

Galaxies-a poem inspired by National Day of Silence LBTQA+ (which was 4.21.17)

Fern and Eve spent countless hours

trying to count each star

one

by

one

when the weather

was dry

as those apricot shavings

in their yogurt.

They didn’t know what

to expect once

a black hole came

to swallow the earth

whole.

 

They had a plan.

A blueprint per say

and in those dark

and lonely times

in the summer

when no one else

was around to play.

They added new

items on their blue print

and danced away.

 

The years had passed

and the love they

thought they wanted

wasn’t pure as

each other’s.

They added new

galaxies to that map.

And finally discovered

that the world

they wanted

wasn’t pure

as their love for each other.

 

They hid in those galaxies

until the black hole

headed the other direction.

Fern and Eve scratched that

blue print

and ripped their past

to shreds.

 

There are new galaxies

and stars to discover.

Endless amounts.

Thirteen Reasons Why-My Opinion

Wow, it’s been a while *walks in with a cup of tea and skids to the screen* I’ve missed you all! (Work, rehearsals, and school have taken over my life. ONCE AGAIN) *laughing emoji because I’m typing this on a desktop computer*

I have a funny story before we begin!

Today I purchased one of those Unicorn Frappuccinos from Starbucks. Many social media platforms have been exploding of photos and videos and advertisements. That’s what happens these days..mostly memes hit the internet harder than frappuccinos. I basically bought the frappuccino to try it.

When I got home, I looked at the side of the cup…it said “Hannah Baker”. I was laughing for at least two minutes because I didn’t even notice that someone wrote that (my name is also Hannah and spelled the same way) and I love the show Thirteen Reasons Why.

I’d like to discuss that show.

Synopsis of Show

This TV drama follows a boy name Clay who receives 12 cassette taps on his doorstep. These cassette taps were recorded by a girl named Hannah. Each tape is a new reason why she committed suicide (I actually tear up thinking about this.). Clay listens to these tapes throughout the entire show.

The Debate About Thirteen Reasons Why

I’ve read a lot of reviews about Thirteen Reasons Why while scrolling through Facebook and Twitter. Some have said the directors should not have portrayed the suicide in such a fashion. In certain episodes things can get graphic…but it really does happen out there.

There are people out there who are willing to make others suffer whether it be physically or mentally. It may hit close to home and trigger those who have gone through this sort of pain/trauma.

I think the motive was to educate those who haven’t suffered themselves but who know someone who is struggling with this issue. The makers of Thirteen Reasons Why were trying to educate us all, not offend.

Of course filming this sort of show is difficult. So difficult. You have to keep in mind that these people were being brutally honest.

The Second Big Debate With This Show

I saw one particular post about this subtopic. Sadly, I don’t remember where I read it or what it was called. All I remember is that one critic said that Thirteen Reasons Why justified pining the reasons for suicide on other people.

That was just Hannah’s circumstance. She was bullied beyond her breaking point. Everyone’s life story is different. What we go through isn’t the same to those we surround ourselves with.

There are warnings for those who might be triggered by such actions in the beginning of the episode. If anyone is affected by this, they shouldn’t watch. It will just spur more negative emotions.

*rant over*

Thanks for reading! I hope to be more active over the next few weeks.

I’ll be posting a new poem within a few days.

Keep reading my friends,

Hannah 🙂

Another Day-a poem

Those songs always come to an end

just like another day passes

and another night ends.

A silence

as loud as

my heart beats

sings the birds to sleep

with songs that

they could no longer sing.

It’s dead outside

and another day

has passed.

Not a word,

not a sound.

You slowly pass me by

and those wings

I gave you

were clipped.

You didn’t need

me to escape.

You used me as

a reason to escape.
