A force is a pull or a push

Pushing on an object causes motion

Motion when you push an object is working

Working on development

Developing Machinery

Machines are invented

Invented by geniuses

Geniuses like Newton

Newton is the SI Unit for motion

Motion laws were discovered by Newton

Newton and others were geniuses

Geniuses that invent

Invent usable machines

Machines develop

Developing work

Work is when pushing an object causing motion

Motion caused by a push

Pushing or pulling is force




Wild Thing



Pouncing, it leaps down the stairs

Clawing at its prey

As it does everyday



Crash, against the wall

Dizzy once again

But manages not to fall



Spring, on top the table

Walking around in a circular path

Still healthy and able



Shhhh, on my lap

Curled in bliss

My creature is taking a well-deserved catnap 


Courage: Poem #1

Compromising nothing for the sake of patriotism

You’re forever proud

To be a lion and king of the jungle

Someone who shoots for a life in the clouds

On days that are dark

You’re able to see

As if there were a light brighter than the sun

As calm as the sea

Underneath layers of doubt

No hope in the Earth

You’re able to break free

You give lives rebirth

Running head-first into the danger

Like a leader would do

When backed against the wall,

You mastermind a clever coup

And when time has appeared to cease

You’re determined to keep going

Fighting for what’s right

As if all-knowing…

Going to places

Never gone before

No boundaries at all

Exploring from shore to shore

Enduring the chaotic conditions

You have to have heart

To show that you are passionate

Courage is a work of art.

Race for MVP: Lebron or Durant?

To be honest there is only two people in the race for the coveted regular season NBA MVP award, Lebron James and Kevin Durant. Each are having amazing seasons in their own rights, and it will be a tough decision to decide who wins. Lebron is the ultimate all around player, but Durant is the best scorer and clutch player in the league.

Lebron James plays for the Miami Heat, who are the best team in the east. Lebron is currently averaging 27.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game and making 57% of his field goals. He also had a historic stretch this season where he averaged 30 points a game for six games on 60% shooting. This was the first time in NBA history that anyone has done this.

Kevin Durant is on the Oklahoma City Thunder, who has one of the best records in the league. He is currently averaging 28.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game and making 51% of his field goals. Kevin is also a member of the 50-40-90 club, which means he averages 50% from the field, 40% from three and 90% from the free throw line. He is among legends in this club like Larry Bird and Steve Nash.

These both players, whoever gets the award, deserves it. Both Kevin Durant and Lebron James are deserving of the MVP award.

Letter To The Author: A Long Way Gone

Dear Ishmael Beah,

I’m writing you concerning your book, A Long Way Gone. It was honestly too graphic, horrid and frankly, quite unbelievable that these events happened in such sequential order to this kid. First, I want to explain why I picked up this  book. It was not by choice . I was forced to read this as a 8th grade summer reading book. I couldn’t even get through the entire book in one sitting. I literally had to take a break from the book because it was too horrific.

I remember there was one scene that was so graphic that it almost brought me to tears. If I remember it correctly, the scene was about how you were in a contest to see who could slit the enemies’ throats the fastest. Really? Was this really needed? Also, there was a quote from the book that I thought was quite unneeded. To jog your memory, here’s the quote: “ ‘Every time people come at us with the intention of killing us, I close my eyes and wait for death. Even though I am still alive, I feel like each time I accept death, part of me dies. Very soon I will completely die and all that will be left is my empty body walking with you. It will be quieter than I am.” And if you don’t remember what you said on the next page, you said that he died the morning after he said this. This really made me wonder how the heck could you remember the quote, number one, and that he died the very next morning, number two. This really made me think about the reliability of your factual account. So upon further research, I found that you claimed to have a photographic memory.I think this is completely absurd. You remembered his entire sentence and you remember what day it was on. Come on, I wasn’t born yesterday.

I wish I never read about the  Blood Diamond War because it has  haunted me ever since. I feel like my childhood has been robbed because it’s hard to find fun in things, when I know atrocities happen to kids my age like this overseas.

The Bandit

As a winding road progresses
A Bandit must continue
Trotting down the old worn path
In hope for redemption
And the very last time I saw him
He said he must push forward
And that he learned his lesson

It started a few days ago,
Late in the evening
He was strolling out of a saloon
When he was confronted
By a group of brawny goons

So he readied both revolvers
And the others, they did too
The Bandit staring eye to eye
To what seemed to be the end
But the Bandit didn’t quit,
The Bandit put up a fight
And one by one the others
Proceeded to fall
And after the last one fell
He stared at their dead bodies
And realized that
The smallest one
Was his oldest son
He kneeled and cried
At the thought of his son gone

He stayed there for a while
To say a few prayers
Then the Bandit left the scene
Only to be discovered
By the sheriff of the county
The sheriff had put out a search for the Bandit
The Bandit knew he must go
So he mounted his horse’s back
And he readied to leave
And the very last words he said to me were
“I hope for redemption,
And I must push forward
You see, my little boy,
I have learned my lesson.”
The lesson that he taught me
Was that never to do things without thinking
Always resolve problems peacefully
To be kind to others
And you won’t end up like me.
