Hey so from time to time, i do enjoy poetry, so this is something that i'll hopefully keep adding to!!
To start off:

Feel it
The cool crisp air
Carried by the gentle breeze
Whispering to you

Hear it
Listen for how it crunches
Underneath your feet
The wind rushing around you
As you lean down the hill

Feel it
In your bones
In your heart
In your soul

Hear it
Listen for it
It calls to you
And you must answer the call
"Live life like a pineapple. Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside"

"May you grow up to be righteous; may you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong"

"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire"

Advice for starting year 12
An open letter to my School Friends
Would 10 year old you be proud of who you are?

Another piece of poetry:

You are not your age
Nor your weight
You are not the color of your hair
Or your eyes
You are not the color of your skin
Or the language you speak
You are not your name

You are the books you read
And the songs you listen too when you're alone
You are the words you speak
when no one is listening
You are the happiness in your laughter
And the sweetness in your smile
You are all the tears you have shed
You are all the places you travel to
And the things you believe in
when no one else will
You are the people you love
And the future you dream of

You are made of so much beauty
But you forgot
when you decided you were defined
by the things you aren't
and what others thought of tyou
But no
You are so much more
"Live life like a pineapple. Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside"

"May you grow up to be righteous; may you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong"

"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire"

Another one:
If it is true
that we photograph the things
we are afraid to lose
then its saddening to think
that my generation
the appropriately named "selfie generation"
aren't really a bunch
of narcissistic fools
and attention seeking idiots
that adults think we sometimes are

But rather, we are a bunch of individuals,
afraid to loose themselves.
In this age of technology,
and communication gateways
there are more and more individuals
that capture their own photos
to preserve
and have memories of who they are

We are afraid to lose Ourselves
"Live life like a pineapple. Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside"

"May you grow up to be righteous; may you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong"

"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire"

This ones deep:
Welcome to society
feel free to be yourself
as long as we approve of it
make sure you love your body
not too much
or we'll make you suffer
we'll bully you for being smiling
for being happy
but wonder why you forwn
we'll tell you that you're worthless
and not to make a sound about it
we'll shed tears, like everyone else
as we bury you six feet under
you can fall in love with anyone
as long as we approve
you can have your own opinions
but please, shape them to suit ours
Welcome to society
There's one more rule
You can't leave
"Live life like a pineapple. Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside"

"May you grow up to be righteous; may you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong"

"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire"
