    Original—Bloom by Anna Voelker

    I want to tell you
    about the sunflower I found
    on the sidewalk yesterday.
    It is wilting and curled and gorgeous
    and knows it.
    I want to age like that,
    never forgetting my own beauty,
    never forgetting how to say bloom.

    Original poem with my own find poem

    I want to tell you
    -you can hear what I want
    about the sunflower I found
    – I got the light with shine
    on the sidewalk yesterday.
    – everywhere I went
    It is wilting and curled and gorgeous
    – difficult path but incredible perception
    and knows it.
    -which supposed to be like that
    I want to age like that,
    -I don’t want to forget my path
    never forgetting my own beauty,
    -will spend my life with my dream
    never forgetting how to say bloom.
    – won’t give up with the scheme

    Original “kamin” by Emin & JONY

    In the fireplace at six in the morning
    Your photo
    Memories are burning
    About you
    By the fireplace at six in the morning
    Broken soul
    And all your promises
    Emptiness

    My “found” poem

    I sit and reminisce about the past
    I hold your photo so close near my heart
    They’re burning with the flames
    All I think about is you
    I remember the great times we had
    Shattered to pieces
    You told me you wouldn’t leave me
    Now all I feel is emptiness

    Still I Rise Lyrics: Artist -Yolanda Adams.

    Yet still I rise
    Never to give up
    Never to give in against all odds
    Yet still I rise
    High above the clouds
    At times I feel low
    Yet still I rise
    Above all my problems

    Revised Version with my own Lines

    Yet still I rise
    Like the sun on the horizon
    Never to give up
    I am Determined to win
    Never to give in against all odds
    Facing all my fears
    Yet still I rise
    I must Arise from my slumber and not give in
    High above the clouds
    To tower over my obstacles
    At times I feel low
    Defeat stares at me sometimes
    Yet still I rise
    But I must persevere with enthusiasm
    God is bigger than my problems
    To soar like an eagle and stand tall

    Kathy’s Version of Still I Rise
    Like the sun on the horizon
    I am determined to win
    Facing all my fears
    I must arise from my slumber and not give in!
    To tower over my obstacles
    Defeat stares at me sometimes
    But I must persevere with enthusiasm
    To soar like an eagle and stand tall!

    This Song has been my inspiration when I am facing trials. Challenges come to test our character and inspire us to be our best self. With that being said, I refuse to accept depeat but will endevour to conquer my fears.

    Fields of Hope by Tanaka Rie (English translation)

    Beneath a veil so cold,
    You deeply sleep, all alone
    The melody of prayer; on the lonely fields,
    a little light shined

    I watched as you dreamed
    You laughed like a child
    So dear, and yet so far –
    That is the promise of our future

    My Found Poem

    Deep down it was always cold,
    Always sleeping by myself
    A beautiful song is what awakens me,
    Like a light to guide me

    I dream every day,
    Always feeling I’m a child
    So close but far,
    Willing to be there in the future

    Original lyrics: Tribe Called Quest – Can I Kick It?

    Can I kick it? To all the people who can Quest like A Tribe does
    Before this, did you really know what live was?
    Comprehend to the track, for it’s why cuz
    Gettin measures on the tip of the vibers
    Rock and roll to the beat of the funk fuzz
    Wipe your feet really good on the rhythm rug
    If you feel the urge to freak, do the jitterbug
    Come and spread your arms if you really need a hug

    Found Poem:

    Kickin it is how we deal with things
    Before then, did you really know what stress was?
    It will help you conquer and survive
    It’s a good estimate to get what you need.
    Swim through the riptides of life
    Wash your hands at all times
    If you still feel dirty, use some hand sanitizers
    Stay inside if you really need too

    Daniel powter – free loop

    I’m a little used to calling outside your name
    -Im not used to calling you by your name
    I won’t see you tonight so I can keep from going insane
    -i go crazy whenever i see you
    But I don’t know enough
    -i dont much
    I get some kinda lazy day
    -im having a lazy day
    I’ve been fabulous through to fight my town a name
    -i have been doing my best to earn a name for my town
    I’ll be stooped tomorrow if I don’t leave as them both the same
    -i will be sad if they arent the same as my name
    But i don’t know enough
    -But i dont know much
    I get some kinda lazy day
    -im having a lazy day
