Life goes on

Writings of the Black Rose

I have not lived for years,
I have lived each moment as a lifetime….

Things have not always been good,
I have tried to improve everything…

Life may not have given me a chance to smile,
I have sworn to bring a smile on the face of an unknown….

I have not got whatever I wished for,
I have earned for whatever I longed for…

I know the pain of being lonely,
I try to be friends with unknown…

I know the importance of love,
I spread life wherever I go….

The Roller Coaster of Life (poem)

Journal of an Indonesian College Student

Up, down; the roller coaster goes.
Fowards, backwards; I walk on my toes.
Life’s a track, full of twists and turns.
You can reach the top; you can crash and burn.

One day you’re happy, the next day you’re not.
At first you believe, eventually you doubt.
You reach success; a six-figure salary.
You lose your job; a big wave of misery.

Expect the unexpected, try to stay realistic.
But never lose hope, stay optimistic.
You see life can be rough, full of sadness and sorrow.
But the bad things in life, might be gone by tomorrow.

So when riding the coaster; the roller coaster of life,
put on your seatbelt; because you’re in for a ride.

Humanimals

Man has long believed
In his superiority
To animals.

Because of our capability
To control our actions
To make decisions
And to communicate.

But having a capability
Doesn’t mean we use it.

What makes us so different
From one another
Is that animals
have more humanity
Than any human I’ve ever met.
And most humans
Act more animalistic
Than any animal I’ve ever seen.

Underestimated

Learning to crochet is probably one of the hardest things that I’ve done in my life. My momma and I decided that I need a “hobby” of some sort and crochet said, “Hey Sadie. We could be friends.” So I was like fine whatever how hard can this actually be. Underestimated the difficulty of crocheting is exactly what I have done for almost a week now. I got this DIY crochet pack but the yarn that I bought was too thick. Sooo frustrating. I mean I honestly had no idea that it could be this hard. There are different sizes of needles that you need for the different yarn sizes you use. I just got the thin yarn last night, so I’m going to try and crochet with this yarn instead. Problem is: I don’t know how to even make the slip knot!!!! That’s the first step to crocheting and I’ve attempted it about 30 times. It’s exhausting but it seems fun once I get the hang of it.

Growing Up

Your first day of high school. The one you dread. The one you can’t wait for. Figuring out what to wear takes about an hour, guy or girl. The time that I realized that I had only four years left until I was an official adult and could practically do what I want. Now, being 17, I understand that high school is almost over and I will be an adult in less than a year. Soon after that, I’ll be going off to college and realizing that my dreams of being a teacher will come true. Applying to colleges and playing a sport were definitely stressful last semester. Keeping my grades up is just another challenge in itself. With 3 AP classes, school will never be “easy” again.
