Tiptoeing in the middle of the night
Certain that Mom and Dad are out sight
Stealing away to do what I love best
Heart pounding like a hammer in my chest
There on those linen sheets you wait for me
All spaced out, and as blank as blank can be
I close the door and hide away the key
Escaping from a life of drudgery
Once again putting my life on the line
Though Mom and Dad say it is such a crime
Neglecting my homework to be with you
Knowing to thine own self I must be true
So with pen in hand I lay myself down
And pray that this diary won’t be found

hope, life, love, school, son, time, time,
I watched as his tiny hands held the crayon,
first time homework, and I wanted to help,
but I knew this was his challenge, not mine.
In time he would figure things out on his own,
and one day, he would be a daddy, with children
of his own.

My favourite cook!
The best chef
Who needs no cook book.
You looked after me when I was small
You took care of me when I grew tall.
You always gave me good advice
Not just on homework
But some of the best advice on life.
I really want you to know
That aslong as I grow
I will love you so!

John I'd love to steal your work
But I’d look a complete berk
We know stealing is wrong
Unless you come from Ding Dong
some need to do their homework!
Tongue firmly in cheek write Inspired by John Wulf's poem Steal this poem please

religion, school, sun, planet,
Dear Lord I want to thank you for the sun
Without it the world would not have begun
For we need the sun in order to survive
Without it planet earth would not be alive
I like the sun for the beauty it brings
It grows our food, trees, among other things
It gives us warmth, sunrises, sunsets and joy
Brings endless happiness to each girl and boy
The sun reminds me of you lord, for you are the light
Giving hope to us all, every day and every night
The brightness of each brand new day reminds me of your love
Smiling down on each one of us from heaven up above

analogy, homework, life, time,
Years slip by
and the world continues to turn
changing and progressing
skipping thru history lessons
to venture forth
bold and fool hearty.
what happened but was never
meant to be.
Prophets, sages and psychics
sense the madness
as it dances
brazen on the horizon.
Peace and war
are now merely words
to allow love and hate
to rise and fall.
Separation of rich and poor
stretch wide the gaps
of haves and have nots
to forever be unsatisfied.
pushes play and repeats
until one day
we are all
out of time.

allegory, beach, black love, blessing, blue, boat, books, city, feelings, grave, heaven, homework, motivation, muse, myth, proposal, romantic, wind,
It's blisteringly faithfully rot,
it's intangible as it's deserving of all,
so many signs,
and signatures to boot...
The wreathe in the sky,
the tree rotation eye,
end of all eagerness,
dredge of the forced peaceful bliss..
The honorary code time'd and then aged like the rot,
and an evening star,
and a really far far...

funnyhomework, , cute,
My sister ate my homework,
Yes, I promise she did.
Her sweet eyes will fool you,
She looks like a cute kid,
But her teeth are sharp as knives,
As her hunger grows,
She wants some tasty geometry,
How she gets it?
No one knows.
It’s there in my bag,
Her eyes are stone,
Staring at my folder,
That homework all alone,
But she will give it a friend,
Maybe invite it for tea,
“I would love to have you for diner.” She’d say,
But she does’t fool me!
So I’m sorry I don’t have my homework today,
My sister’s on an eating streak,
I hope she does’t keep it up,
I might not have homework for the rest of the week.

Lady of my life carrying so much wonder with an
Opal birthstone, a gem to match her smile, she's
Vivacious by nature and brown eyes sparkling...
Ella Rose, my spring fountain sprays while
Latticed hands held crossing the street with
Induced electricity sparking my fire
Naughty while working on her homework and
Elated when her daddy comes home
Sassy days indeed, still perfect in my eyes but...
Shhh...my lovely lady sleeps like an angel

autumn, chocolate, halloween, homework, nostalgia, october,
Its strange how I have always loved the fall
Even as a child with schools threat so near
I yawn and watched as time slowed to a crawl
The suspension of freedom what I fear
The crunching of leaves is beckoning me
Only time of year decay smells so sweet
The scar I still have from scrapping my knee
From that piece of glass hidden in the street
No other time of year do monsters roam
Creeping down sidewalks, knocking at your door
Ghosts and ghouls and, oh look a garden gnome
Collecting treats and sweets till feet are sore
I know not why I love the Fall so much
Maybe its the calm before winters punch

business, future, science fiction, space,
With the quickness ...
unprecedented corporate rise
Fabulous omni-view sky work space,
immune to boardroom gossip sickness
Poker-face negotiator disguise ...
keep the key competition guessing
Do the necessary background homework,
anticipate any proprietary lies
Next gen capitalist with no corruption trace ...
squint the inside of planetary councils
Logic sequencing of managerial decisions,
investors' hugs are a burgeoning dividend embrace
Lawyers love the legal byzantine thickness ...
corner the market on low g orbital gear
Warp expansion of the company's political assets,
explains how a lowly rock hopper ascends with the quickness

The Love of My Dad
When I was a child, you combed my hair for school
I never played hooky, because that was your rule
You helped with my homework
Math was a trial
But you stuck with me, because I am your child
You never gave up, no matter how long it took
You taught me to clean, and also to cook
You’re my dad and I am so proud
I love you, and I say it out loud
by Sierra Biersack |
teen, me, love, me,
We wernt arguing,
I got a boyfriend,
and a wonderful boyfriend he is,
after a week of me being actually happy,
I guess you must have hated it,
And ruined my life,
You started back up the arguments everyday,
Your making my life about homework and nothing else,
You yell at me about nothing.
Your never fair.
Its like you love to see me cry.
Its like you hate to see my happy,
And you just love to see the pain..

My son is nine years old;
we laugh, read, cry, paint,
draw, watch cartoons, fish,
play at the park, and do homework
I love having a son:
After eight years of trying we still
have not conceived. When my dream of having a
baby girl has come true, her name will be......

confidence, freedom, homework, nature, school, simple, wisdom,
A sweet memory of our school days
We walked to school everyday
With a light school bag
Under a blue sky
With rain or sunshine abound
Only a few books in the school bag
But many flowers pluck
Or junk food bought along the way
We only had to finished our homework
Before we're free to play
We memorised lessons for our tests
Which were simple and straight forward questions
Never got tuition
We're left to learn and recite ourselves
Till we remembered
A simple style of school life
But with confidence,independence and wisdom
A nature lover
A love for freedom
A love for a simple life

The Monday Morning
The scorching sun shines ,
and the school bell chimes.
It starts with the test,
and we have to give our best.
It is the time for studies ,
and also to learn moral duties .
Now comes the time for race,
those who left behind couldn’t get any trace.
Now we go for lunch,
and we take it in bunch.
The sweetness of lunch turn lime,
when the end bell chime .
It’s a time for logic ,
which appears to be a magic.
The school ends with delightness of game,
as love for game at any age is not a shame .
We had got homework in pile,
and it’s a time to walk a mile.

When I was little
I’d look down
see hern tiny
her auburn flowing tresses
the pixy’s eyne beaming staring up
lips lisping longing
for mine kiss
When I was little
I’d feel hern pixy cute
when 'gainst mine chest
When I was little
I looked down into hern tiny

birthday, celebration, family, love,
I'm not going out tonight
I hope you can forgive me
I'll be by myself tonight
where not anyone can see me
no homework books or reading
not tv, computers or guitar
just me quietly thinking
of the life I've lived so far
17 years I've been around
and look what I have done
nothing that exciting
I was only having fun
but in these 17 years I guess
I've done somthing pretty cool
I've been a sister and a daughter too
and developed a life with you
so tonight I'm not going to hide
or sit up in my room
tonight I'm going to celebrate
17 great years with you

Working from home cool,
Do miss our old house,
With its great splash pool,
Now in an estate
New memories here,
Which will be as dear
We start work later,
An hour or so,
Have a shower and
Work from ten every
Morn,or ten thirty
But work till late
To which I relate
We have a small break
During the day,
A different way
Of living, working,
I love it, so great,
This way of life,
A working girl’s fate.
