This advertisement represents on how people being stress and going through depression. This bird is tending to be prescribed with medication to get rid of its stressful life. The raven shows that when you take pills and get addicted to them you become crazy and emotional. When you sad and depressed people lead to take drugs and pills is the biggest killer of them all. I feel that when you going through life losing a loved one you should take therapy to express how you feel in your mind. Don't take life for granted but live life to the fullest and continue to press forward!
In the following poem " The Raven " by Edgar Allen poe, I will be translating his first stanza to modern English/ Slang.
The Original first stanza:
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
'Tis some vistor,' I muttered, 'tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more,'
My version of the poem in modern English/Slang:
I was still up at 12, about to knock out
She lives in a world between reality and fiction.
Half of her unconscious, the other half journeying to Neverland.
Her mind wanders, free, no restriction
Closed eyes can’t shackle her wild imagination, beautifully grand.
Every night, she rises like a phoenix from the ashes, ready for her next adventure.
Whether it be to the stars, or to the depths of the sea.
Exploring caves, or landing on the moon, her own grand tour
My name is Sam, not Samuel or Sammy, just Sam.
I don’t like it when people call me anything else.
In Hebrew my name means Name of God.
I don’t know why my parents named my Sam, I am not Hebrew, nor do I have any association with the Hebrew religion.
My name is very fluid, it flows well from my first name, to my middle, to my last.
My name reminds me of bright colors and high numbers.
It reminds me of my relatives and the people in my family that lived before me.
I like my first name, but I love my last name; Kadrofske.
My name is a jumble of last-minute thoughts and stolen details.
While I don’t know what my parents were thinking at the time, I can’t say that the title doesn’t suit me.
Megan, a name that is plain, nothing special or fancy, no odd spellings that pop out at you or things to make you approach me to ask, “wow, what an interesting name!”.
An afterthought as I was born, something quickly put together as a result of lack of ideas.
Some of you might not run into people who have your name, but for me, there are at least 3, daughters of the doctors who performed my mother’s C-Section.
No matter what language, my name means love. It means happiness. It means spending time with family. It means playing tennis. It means music. It means a flower, a small yet colorful mess full of hope. Hope that one day it will grow to become something wonderful. Something beautiful inside and out. It does not hide in the shadows, yearning to be like others, it thrives to be different, to be independent. To be strong and courageous. I am that flower. I am significant. I am Martina.
My name has the meaning of pure and was given to me by my father.
The name Katie represents something as clear as water, a glimmering light.
But does that represent who I am today? I have not discovered that yet.
I would not be considered as pure as a drop of honey from a beehive nor as pure as an element.
I am certainly not perfect, but my personality, my looks, my everything is genuine.
I count that as pure, and that’s all that matters.
My parents say my name is special but it was more of like a last resort to them.
My name is Ronny Morales.My dad gave me my name before I was born.In Spanish it means a lot of things.In English not that much.I also had friends named Ronny like me.My father gave me my name like I said above.He was born in D.R like me.He then came over here to New York. Then.Then worked in a construction site.He worked with my uncle.
In a beautiful night in the dubs, I drove my car throughout the night, lonely and desperate
He was awaiting for a text I assume, but then distracted being lost in the music
I was being very cautious on the dark broken roads yet very tempted
My phone kept blowing up with the same tone buzzing upon my seat
Not believing if it was him or not since he haven’t replied to me all day
Was it my partner texting me, oh shoot car !
That was a close one, I will keep my eyes on this damn road
I remembered that it was a school night at the moment driving though
One night, as I was not strong and feeling sleepy,
Trying to forget my lost love, Lenore
As my head was slowly going down, nearly napping, there was a knock
Someone gently knocking, knocking at my front door.
“A visitor,” I mumbled, “knocking at my front door
Only a knock and no more”
I remember it was a cold December;
The embers from the fire drift upward from the floor, as if it was a ghost
As I read books to distract me from the lost of Lenore
It did not work, the sorrow for my Lenore was still there
The angels call her Lenore, a young radiant girl
The air gets warmer after the long winter season
Snow has now melted from existence
Birds can be heard singing in the trees
The leaves are back in their healthy green color
The scent of newly grown flowers fill the air
Children leave their houses to play
Vendors occupy the streets offering various food to order
Students are let out of school for a week to themselves
These changes in NY let you know Spring is here
Rain is something that i like.
i like to run outside
jump in the puddles
the air is fresh on my tongue
and get wet
running in the rain
jumping in the puddles
water splashing everywhere
rain feels like the ocean splashing at my feet
rain can take the stress away
rain is beautiful. :):
the air smells fresh
Rain feels cold when it touches your bare skin along with the wind. When you’re going on a car ride and you get bored you race two rain drops down the window to see which is fastest. You see people with umbrellas all around town because they are avoiding the rain, which is confusing because they were the ones who wanted it to rain in the first place, so what’s the point? Rain is peaceful, it is a great opportunity to read books with a warm blanket or cuddle up and watch movies.
As I sat around thinking about school,
I thought why do I go everyday
And I wondered how life could be so cruel
And I realized I needed to stay
I have learned many things in this big place
Lots of valuable information
I had always thought that it was a race
I had never done the calculation
That maybe one day I will use this stuff
That I will need this knowledge in real life
And even though learning is always tough
Maybe I will use knowledge to end strife
And if I can help at least one person
Then I know that the world will not worsen
Long days of summer are where
memories are found.
New friends are made and
adventures are had.
Feeling afraid of things
we can’t understand.
But knowing at the end of
the day, a loving father will make
What can be done to make
I am not a monster, I am
a innocent man.
They cannot see what they
The love of my family
is all that I’ve got.
I pray my children will see the day,
when all this hatred has
The warm breeze hitting my face, as I run
The marvelous shadows of the oak trees
Laying on the grass, devoured by the sun
No thinking, just putting my mind at ease
Walking along the pier seems so fun
The ever so sweet, salty ocean breeze
Farewell Winter, a new one had begun
Into the water, it’s up to my knees
Never want it to stop, or to be done
I don’t want it to go away, stay please
It feels as though, this game of life, we won
No problems, no complaining, no worries
They call this summer, the season that stuns
May it always stay, the year is still young
My love is anything but insincere.
Such haunts yet excites my thoughts night and day.
What we have is pure, none may interfere,
With our firm loyalty, neither will stray.
In his presence I grow weak though complete.
Hair light as a feather, eyes sparkling amber,
His charming personality so sweet.
Only for me, he does indeed pamper.
Could I compare thine to a grand sunset?
The exquisite scene could never amount,
To his gorgeous features, bright or upset.
How long have I loved him? I've lost count.
And when he calls my name I come running,
To give up my heart he has been tugging.
Fate can bring two destined souls together
Magic happens when two hearts intertwine;
Right ones uniting will be forever;
Love is so indescribably divine.
And fate can tear two destined souls apart
Through misunderstanding, through hurt and pain;
But if their love truly stems from the heart,
Then their struggles will not all be in vain.
All of our lives lie in the hands of fate
Our paths are planned from our very first breath;
Whether we experience love or hate,
Our journeys will all end the same way: death.
No matter what fate intends, keep going,
In truth, I did not comprehend the facts
Perhaps the Universe is made of time?
Time to be going and time to diffract
From catastrophe or partners in crime
Could this make me completely made of time?
For time is the only true currency
Even the stars die, but die with a shine
The stars, they can conceal their clemency
They can burn and bulge and glow with color
But eyes to the telescope can reveal
The truth inside the eyes of the Scholars
Scientists and Madmen are roulette wheels
They prove the innocence of time and space
And yet they still get caught up in the chase
What happened to the boy in Mississippi
Who took a deadly trip south?
Never to return home again.
Fourteen years were taken too soon
Fear in his eyes for all to see
While murderers get away without a care
His mother needed to see what remains
A broken body far from who she knew
A sight that made a congregation cringe
A sight that would bring on anger from the nation
Emmett Till, just as you and me,
dreamed and went to school
laughed with friends and joked around
Emmett Till lived every day
Holding on to the weight of slavery’s chain
What is love but the burning flame of life
Like a warm fire that beckons you near
It still crackles during the coldest nights
It isn’t something you can see or hear
Love is a flower, so sweet and divine
You must water your love for it to bloom
The magic of when two hearts intertwine
Is like a bird that sings its lovely tune
Can love be unbroken through fear and lies
Will it overcome the cruelness and hate
Is love still with them when somebody cries
When a heart is aching, can it be fate
On the topic of love one thing is sure
When someone has love they need nothing more
