- Beneficial Pets
Would you like to live a happy and productive life? Then get pets! I must admit it is hard to believe that domesticated animals can promote mental and physical health, but many studies have shown that they can. On the other hand, you must find a pet that is compatible with you or with your life style.
Maintaining good mental health is crucial for living a "normal" life. Many psychiatrists have found that patients with anger management problems can be calmer wit...

"Gateway to heaven"
"Ouch, je je I'm telling mamma!" I yelled in agony, rubbing the imprint her book left on my head.
"No you're not, she won't believe you; I'm older," snickered my sister, and with that she ran up the crowded walkway; which in the morning hour, looked much like a stampede of bulls. As I walked toward school, I listened to the distinctive chatter of my fellow civilians, smelled the exhaust fume filled air and listened to the be...
- King Midas
Long ago, during the time of knights and dragons, there lived a king named Midas. He was considered one of the richest men on earth, but just like the many wealthy people around, money did not bring much happiness to him. Unsatisfied, he then assumed that perhaps being the richest among the rich could be the answer to his desires for a better life.
Once, our friend was sitting on his throne, contemplating the meaning of life like he always did at lonely times, when his h...
- Self Satisfaction
In the past sixteen years I have faced various challenges that have molded my personality to as it is today. I went through a very tough stage in my social life when I was in grade seven and eight at the age of twelve and thirteen. I had a group of five friends outside of school, we were always together and they were all very close to my heart. It came to the point where three of the girls decided that they did not want to associate with one other, and I was forced...

- The Waterfalls
Visiting a waterfall, especially on a hot sultry day, can be a favorite way to spend a day. You get in your car, drive for miles, then get out and walk the remainder of the way to a waterfall. Civilization has cleared and marked a pathway for you and the many thousands like you that have also come to enjoy these named landmarks. Rarely do you get to enjoy the natural beauty of one by just stepping out into your own backyard.
Behind my house, barely noticeable, i...

A Dream Deferred
The poetry of Langston Hughes, the poet laureate of Harlem, is an effective commentary on the condition of blacks in America during the 20th Century. Hughes places particular emphasis on Harlem, a black area in New York that became a destination of many hopeful blacks in the first half of the 1900...

The Sloth - breif ananlysis
The Sloth by Theodore Roethke
A lazy sloth is in a tree. Someone asks him something and he acts as if he does not hear, but he is thinking about it. He acts like you heard what his answer was, even though he didn't say anything. Lazily, he goes back to sleep knowing the answer to what you asked him and assuming that you know it too.

Thomas L. Kelley
As I reflect upon my experience in the Persian Gulf War I can recall the fighting all too clear. The time was 2110 hours on 16 January 1991. The ground war had been underway for five days and I was mentally exhausted. My platoon had been assigned the duty of clearing bunkers. During the last portion of our briefing we were given explicit instructions to ensure that we all made it back alive. We were also instructed to take prisoners if we could, if not, do what ...
- The Wait
Suzy was waiting at the kinder gate for her Mummy to pick her up and take her home. She saw a red car pull up, that was Sally's car
"Bye Sally!" said Suzy "see you tomorrow!"
A big blue car pulled up in front of the kindi; that was not her mummy's car. That was Tom and Tim's car - They were twins.
"By Tom and Tim" said Suzy "see you tomorrow!"
A little yellow car drove into the kindi driveway. Suzy's mum wasn't in it either. It was Lucy's car. Lucy's curls bobbed as she ho...
My lips so tainted
In the blood they tasted.
Created in the mists of time
I stand naked in the moonlight,
Skin glistening in the moist morning air.
Once the king of dragons,
Usurper of a thousand nations.
A god amongst the mortals,
Now it all lies in ashes,
Wind blowing the dirt gently away.
The world changed,
As did I, the world I knew,
Is nought but a mirage
A fragment of my past,
Now I cower from the night.
I fear for the ashes may return,
And bring fo...

Sesame Street (Drug Trip)
I see the world,
With eyes of yesterday,
The fear of death lies around the corner,
The smell of drugs on the street,
You lie there,
Your friends laughing,
You, you are crying,
- In The Night
In the Night
Listen to our loud silent dear God
Listen to our cry;
We fall to your feet
Yet our cries are not heard;
We died under fear
By your side
Yet you cried not one tear
We lived on
Yet somehow we know,
That we can not go on without you,
You are the light.
Somehow...someway...somewhere in time
We will gain our strentgh again and go on
Go on through the deep darkness of night
And all was made, all is done
We sit and dine by your side
May you sti...
