World

The Earth Fable

Ana Isabel Dabdoub

Carolina Villanueva Briseño

God was sitting in his favorite cloud thinking how to make his afternoon more interesting, that is when the brilliant idea of creating a new world came to his mind. He immediately started with his new project and decided to call it The Earth. “But what should The Earth have? What shape should I give it? Who’s going live in it?” He asked himself. God took it one step at a time. First he made the shape and it started out as a circle but something went wrong and ended up becoming an oblate sphere. “Hm..That’s good enough, I guess”, said God. Now it was time to fill it up with everything else he wanted to put on Earth. He started with animals like lions, bears, giraffes, birds, monkeys, and other animals that live on land. He then got creative and filled some spaces of The Earth with water. That is where sharks, whales, fishes and other sea animals lived. Finally, he froze some parts of Earth and penguins, polar bears, walruses and other artic or cold weather animals lived there. “That’s pretty good, think I’m done here”, God said. That was that.

Back on earth, all the animals lived happily in each of their designated habitats and in its best conditions: polar bears never suffered from warmth because it was always winter, camels were always relaxed because it was always hot, orangutans were always resting because it has humid and perfect, and so on. Surprisingly, lions were also friendly because they didn’t have to worry about anything. They even greeted each other.

“Hi my name is Simba, nice to meet you”. A lion would say.

“Hey, Simba I’m Mufasa. I really like it around here, don’t you?” The other responded.

All of the other animals felt the same, everything was in its place and they all lived in peace. Nature was taking its natural course; it was all working perfectly.

God was very fond of his creations, especially all the animals. Nevertheless, Artemis, daughter of God, was jealous of his creations: she utterly desired to damage her father´s creations. One day, Artemis noticed something that was happening on earth… the animals became more egocentric than ever before. Because they were so accustomed to live without preoccupations, they didn't care about other species. They didn’t want to share there living space, or to just share a ration of food. All the animal kingdom began to behave like this. It was becoming a world that God did not intend to create.

 

The relentless Artemis took advantage of their misbehaviour, grabbed the planet and started shaking it. She managed to shaked it so intense that she altered the weather in each habitat, thus corrupting the peacefulness that once existed. The perfect habitats no longer were: polar bears began to have summer, camels began to have winter, and lions became meaner because they weren’t at peace anymore. So from that moment on now, every animal received their punishment, and had to deal with it. The animals had to learn how to survive.

Children Know Things

There are certain things
That all children know -
Flowers bloom in spring
When all the birds sing
The sun helps things grow
And melts the fresh snow
Rain washes things clean
And helps with gardening
The good times - playing
And bed time for praying
The very best balloons
Big ‘n round as full moons
And without any strings
Moving as the wind blows
Yep - children know things
Like - don’t step on toes
The moon is Swiss cheese
Leprechauns wear green
And all angels have wings
Yep – children know things

What is perfect

                                       what is perfect?

 

what is perfect can you talk to it will it talk back

What is perfect can it look up at the night sky so black 

What is perfect can you walk with it will it walk besides you

What is perfect can you tell it your secrets like a bff so true 

How does one define perfect is it like an recovering alcoholic

How can one describe that oh so Important word perfect

What is perfect can you hug it or give it that perfect kiss 

What is perfect is it a country song or is it something to reminisce

What is perfect are we all perfect or are we just all unchecked

One day we will be but today isn't that day to seek what is perfect!!!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this because sometimes most of us at some point in our lives have wanted things to be perfect and when they don't turn out that way some get upset I know I did still do infact. Hope you  like it feel free to critique my work if you don't I can't try to improve it ( oh here I go again trying to be perfect ugh!!!!)

A world without you in it!

  A world with outyou in it

What would it be like in a world with out you in it

 if you didn't exist if there wasn't a you how would I fit

If you are not here the trees would have no color to show 

And the sky would be grey and the wind would not blow

Everything would lose it's wonder and wither and crumble

And if your not here then I would be alone and take a tumble

What would it be like in a world with out you in it

All the bees would have no honey to eat and the sun wouldn't shine

To warm everything up and nothing would grow and it wouldnt be fine

All the lakes and oceans would dry up and fish wouldnt be able to swim

The world would lose it's light and be in total darkness no light everything grim

Everyone would be fighting and causing a riot and would all have a fit

So  you see what would happen if this was a world with out you in it.

I tried?

I tried to find the way to go, I tried to find the road to hope, I tried so hard that I got lost. I tried searching for my sole as I feel like I ain't got one. 

 

Who's fault is it? who's to blame? Me that's who?

 

Listening to all the lies people tell you. Controlling your life from a young age, always telling you what you can and not do, that's there way! 

 

making you believe in a religion from young so you get used to believing that God will help you. Ain't till you realise that all you have got in life, you have got it yourself. That's when you become more self-aware of life's doings. 

 

 

You become a god walking a world that he and only himself controls with his mind. But for some people they choose the easy way out and try to hide, praying on there hands and knees to a god in the sky. The truth is that the world is a big lie a big disguise, only you can un- mask the truth within your life.

You Have The Power

You Have The Power

By Jfarrell

 

(inspired by a class discussion we had today)

 

The power to change the world is in your hands,

All of you;

You, you and, yes, you;

And not one word here is a lie,

Or wishful thinking.

 

Look around,

What do you not like?

What disgusts you, angers you,

Saddens you, depresses you?

 

You name it,

I won’t make suggestions,

I don’t need to,

You know what makes you angry.

 

You can change it,

Make it better;

And you only need to do 2 things:

 

  1. Believe in yourself.

    It doesn’t matter who you are,

    How smart, or not, you think you are.

    Every great person who ever lived,

    Believed in themselves.

    Whether we speak about Einstein,

    Or Bill Gates;

    What makes them different from you?

    Nothing.

    So, believe.

     

  2. Act.

    Give a homeless person some food,

    Help that mum with her buggy,

    Run for election.

     

    Here endeth the lesson.

    Believe and act.

Creation of the World

Fable

Creation of the world

 
 

At first, everything was silence. The universe was at peace, and nothing existed but a solitary god, in the form of a wolf. This wolf, the white wolf was on a long slumber, but eventually he woke up. After his awakening he decided that he should create the world. To do this he first created three gods, one for each element of the universe. God of earth, the black rabbit, god of water, a giant water turtle and god of the wind, the ethereal falcon. They lived peacefully before their long work for creating the world. The white wolf demanded the three childish gods his view for the new world. It must be colorful he said, full of life he demanded, it must be big, and there must always be light.

 

The gods got to work with the white wolf’s request for his vision of the perfect world, but there were some problems. The gods unfortunately were childish and had no self control. They didn’t complete the task that the white wolf set them to. They created the world, but in midst of chaos and disaster. Gods were always fighting, thinking who was the most important of them all, creating most of our landscapes and phenomenons. The god of water created the rivers, oceans, and lakes.During a fight the god of wind got mad at the god of water, therefore, he throwed all his anger by creating storms, taking out the peacefulness of still water. The god of earth created the land, while in another fight with god of wind about who gets the more space, he created the mountains, trying to build up even more, overshadowing god of wind.

 

There were also other factors that contributed, the gods had very particular personalities. The god of water didn’t like fighting that much, so he decided he shall leave so he could be in peace somewhere else, his presence kept flowing all oceans, rivers, and lakes. But by leaving a part of the Earth turned into ice, and that’s how it was created. God of wind had very changing personalities, depending on the day, so he created the seasons, when he was angry and didn’t feel anything he created winter, cold as his personality.

 

All their actions destroyed the peace that the wolf, the god of gods had been living in, and he was tired of hearing the same problems and issues all over again, just from them three. After this, he decided more people was needed for distraction, so he created human beings, giving them things to exist and develop. Watching their arguments and events they were going through was more entertaining for the god of gods. Creating new ones every time others ceased to exist.

Let’s Save the World!

Let’s save the world!


Not through the words alone,


But with the actions as well,


Let’s work together as a keystone!


 

Time does never hang around,


It flies away as the bird,


Before it is too late,


Let’s stop being absurd!


 

On behalf of all the living beings,

 

For a better future my heart as a Baul sings!

Headquarters

Folder: 
Personal

"The coffee shop,

where in the middle of the block,

it had started;

where they met.

 

Their headquarters,

where they rested

over iced drinks

after a long skate.

 

Old friends,

young men,

two, not the same blood

or kin

 

shake hands 

and embrace the others grin,

a tight squeeze

given to each. 

 

Brothers,

such a tight bond

with so little time,

sealed the deal

 

of interlocking

storylines,

adventures and shared 

scrapes.

 

Escaping near death,

falling off boards onto wrists,

downhill descent

screaming past parked cars,

 

wherein that itself

is a rare occurance

when once was daily.

Temperature varied,

 

as did the places they'd

hunker down,

sweating,

stopping to have a drink.

 

Seperated by little,

attached at the hip,

it seemed. Until

life happened,

 

having sent the older 

away for summmer,

the younger away for the rest,

testing himself and his brain.

 

Drumming away,

marching on by,

the two had lives 

blur on by, 

 

spiraling in different directions,

story arcs and sidequests,

conquests coloring the night,

but by and by, 

 

when guest apperances

would transpire,

everything dropped

to meet one another,

 

the bond was made stronger

with the short time

it had to cure.

Not to say

 

neither were lost,

but both stepped in confidence.

Always looking ahead,

but once they were together,

 

unspoken,

to each love was gave.

Brotherly love,

concrete waves."

Always good to see an old friend you rarely talk to, but as soon as you're together you're as close as ever.
