And That’s Who I Am


I am who I am
Nothing can change that
I’m weird, I’m a nerd
But it’s what makes me happy
I smile too much
I laugh too loudly
But that’s just me
I do things my own way
I talk way too much
But I don’t want to change
I’m unique, I’m special
I’m clumsy, I’m silly
But there’s nothing to fix
I get mad to quickly
And jealous too easily
But that’s just who I am
I tend to screw things up
I tend to end up crying
But that’s all I’ll ever be
I’m a writer, I’m a dreamer
I dream big and never say never
It’s just who I am
You can try to change me
You can try really hard
But I love who I am
And that’s all there is to it.

Ten Thousand Miles

I remember when you first told me you were moving
We only had two months left together
So let’s make the best of it! You’d said
I remember spending every day of those
Last two months with you all
Making memories that would last a lifetime

 I remember the last day with you,
We sat around and watched scary movies
Not talking about what was coming
I remember knowing that we would be
Ten thousand miles apart in
Less than a day

I remember waking up early the
next day to see you guys off
To say our farewells
I remember the ten minute long hugs
Not wanting this moment to end
Not wanting to say goodbye forever

 I remember driving out of your driveway
For the very last time and
The tears that ran down my cheeks
I remember the song put on replay
“How do we say our goodbyes?
Do we laugh or cry?”

I remember not seeing you for a year
When I used to be with you
Every minute of everyday
I remember you visiting for the first time
Those fifteen minutes made up
For an entire year

I remember how much I missed you
Especially when I had
Nothing to do
I remember our  memories
The ones I’ll never forget
As as long as I will live.

 I still think about you each and everyday
And the times we spent together
I still miss you to this day
Two years have come and gone so quickly
But the two spent together will always be remembered.

The Unknown

Like Loch Ness,
It’s murky and unclear
With something unkown
Lurking around below.

 Like a big, black bat
It flies around my head
And rustles in my ears

 Like the lowest note
On a grand piano,
It calls out to me
In its deep, dull voice.

 The color of dark storm clouds,
It looms overhead,
Waiting to swallow me whole.

This poem is about fear :] It was a school project actually!

November 10, 2010
is a date I’ll never forget.
It was the night that I saw
these 3 amazing boys
for the very first time.
It was the night that I
fell in love with Burnham.

They came on stage
and I didn’t know who they were.
I realized they were really cute,
and not to mention talented!
It wasn’t until a few weeks later
that I learned they’re really
much, much more.

Forrest is really cute,
and super, super funny.
He’s a bit of a dreamer
and has a lot of moments.
He utters a lot of
What?’s & Wait, what’d you say?’s
and never pays attention!
He seems to think that
“A dab will do ya!”
His voice is so powerful that
it can shake an entire country,
his dazzling smile can
blind a million girls.

Andre is the leader,
and knows how to make us laugh.
His guitar and piano skills
are absolutely incredible.
He can impersonate almost
anyone perfectly,
but his favorite line is “Groovy Baby”
from the well-known Austin Powers.
He’s pretty beast at apples to apples
and is definately in style,
rocking the “cool boy” look!

Alex is the oldest
and just as funny and talented.
He’s definately a teaser
For he can make a joke
of almost anything
and has almost mastered that
famous Bieber hairflip.
He’s random and goofy
but can be serious and dilligent
when it comes to writing songs.
He knows how to have fun onstage
and always rocks out with the crowd!

Their UStreams make my week,
their tweets make my day.
I don’t know how they find the time
to reply to us all each day!
These boys are truly amazing,
the best that they can be.

They’re the boys who believe that
pink lemons exist,
and that brown cows make
chocolate milk.
They make PB&J smoothies
but spread the jelly with a sword.
Andre and Forrest like to
regift things currently owned,
Alex just plays along.
They love their religion jokes,
as well as making ornaments!
When people ask, we just say
“It’s a Burnham thing.”

This is why we love them,
why we have OBD.
This is why we’re Burnhamizers,
and why we will always support them
110% each and every day
for the rest of our lives!
We’re always here for them
because they’re here for us!

These three boys make up Burnham,
which by the way is pronounce “Bernum”.
They are inspirations
to us all around the world.
They tell us “Don’t Be Shy”
and that our dreams CAN come true.

These boys are my role models,
I’m so glad I discovered them
on the My World Tour in 2010.
My goal this year is to meet them
and let them know how much they
mean to me.
I’ll never forget November 10.
It was the night that I found Burnham.

This is what happens when you’re bored at 1:30 AM :] Obviously this was thrown together in like 20 minutes so it’s not exactly good? haha, but thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed it :]

For those of you who don’t know, Burnham is a band consisting of Forrest (15), Andre (18) and Alex (20). I discovered them when they opened up for Justin Bieber on the My World Tour!

I met them on 11/12/11 (: Best day of my life. My best friend and I got to help them carry in all their stuff into the venue [Rocketown in Nashville] and then basically hang with them all night.

Just Another Breakup

Well it’s Friday night and I’m all alone,
The tears are past,
I’m not crying anymore.
I wasted too much time one you.
The TV’s on and a love songs playing,
But I don’t think of you anymore.

This is just another one of those breakups,
Where a stupid boy dumps a silly girl
And moves on way too fast.
And that silly girl cries though lame old tears,
You know the kind,
Yeah they’re kinda my thing right now,
Because there’s too many stupid boys
And silly girls who fall way too fast,
And don’t get caught.
Just another breakup.

You walk past me
And gasp with shock
When you see how happy I am,
Cause I don’t need you
Yeah I deserve better.
I can strut my stuff
Without your supporting touch
And still feel gorgeous alone.

I’m that silly girl
Who hit the ground real hard
Because you didn’t have
the nerve To catch me.
My tears, they fell,
my lips they frowned,
And my heart fell in two,
All because of you.

I feel bad for her,
Your next girl,
Who’s heart will be broken,
Just like mine.
But just like me,
She’ll know the truth,
That she can go alone
Without you.

Somewhere Down This Road

Shoot for the moon,
You’ll land in the stars,
But don’t worry, you’ll get there soon.
Lift up your bars,
Jump over the tallest sand dune,
raise your hands towards mars,
and find the dish that ran with the spoon.

I could tell you the best of the quotes,
Or write you a story that could bring you to tears,
But she‘s the one who hit all the right notes,
And had conquered even her deepest fears.
I could tell the funniest anecdotes,
But she was the one who got all the cheers,
And who’ll be remembered by her ploetz.

Best of friends we always were,
Always connected at the heart,
But now it’s all just a great big blur,
Instead of sweeter we became tart.
Together forever is what I prefer
And Even though we have drifted apart,
You do too, of that I’m sure.

How do you know when it’s time to stop trying?
To give up on trying to restore what you once had?
To wipe away your tears and finally stop crying?
How do you know if you should forget what went bad?
To think back on memories and finally stop sighing?
How do you know when to stop being sad
And finally feel like you’re living, not dying?

Maybe we’ll meet somewhere down this road
And laugh about everything that happened tonight.
Maybe it will feel as if time has been slowed
As we talk and laugh in the bright sunlight.
Out of us easy chatter will explode
And maybe, just maybe, it’ll all feel alright,
And the burden we’ve been carrying we’ll finally unload.

my first attempt at a rhyming poem, so it’s not perfect. If you have ANY suggestions please please please feel free to post them!

Why Is It?

Why is it the ones you love the most
that turn around and hurt you the worst?
Why is it that all our good times
have been forgotten or have been cursed?
What happened to forever and always?
What happened to friends always first?

Why is it that I always cry,
and feel like I’m about to die,
when we fight over something stupid,
Like a silly boy, or a stupid lie?
What happened to never ending second chances?
Why does our story make me want to sigh?

You always knew how to make me laugh,
You always knew how to make me smile.
You protected me from the hurt,
and always kept me in style.
Now I’ve been pushed to the back of a drawer,
like and unwanted, unused, old file.

You always knew my biggest fears,
my wants, my goals, my dreams.
You helped me achieve and to smile when I’m sad,
and sewed up the rips in my seams.
You boosted my confidence,
and helped me get over the highest of beams.

Just know I’ll be here,
always for you,
because you were always there for me,
and helped me get through,
the toughest of times.
I’ll always love you.
