What is pride?
I have pride in what I am
I feel power in my heart
I am bigger than you say
I have power in what I am
I have pride in what I do
I can rise above their words
Why should I care what they think?
I will never underestimate what I do
I Am Beautiful
I have pride in my beauty
I will never doubt I was made in His image
As a great woman once said, I'm beautiful in my way
What I am is beautiful
I have pride in what I dream
I know my Father's on my side
Him and I accomplish anything and everything
I always dare to dream
I have pride in what I feel
I enlighten those who have been blinded
My purpose is to teach
I will enlighten those who do not feel
What is pride?
Pride is me
I am pride
We stand tall together
You, my brothers and sisters, grasp my hand
We are pride
We are one
And they can never take that away
With power, determination, true beauty, daring, and enlightenment,
There will be
A brighter day
Pride is us
Caretaker The sound of typing was all I heard for the past five hours. How much of my writing had I gotten done? None! Stupid writer's block was keeping me from finishing or even staring on my magazine article.Caretaker3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I needed to be somewhere quiet. Somewhere relaxing. Somewhere I could write.
At that moment an idea occurred to me and I knew exactly where I could go.
I was going to my mountain vacation home about two hours away. It was a bit out of the way, and the Internet wouldn't be great, but it had plenty of hiking trails and beautiful scenery. Perfect for some good ol' inspiration.
Finally, after a long boring drive of seeing what seemed like the same trees over and over again, I was there.
My deadline was approaching quickly, so there was no time for leisure. I had to get started RIGHT AWAY.
Poker FacePoker FacePoker Face3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
We've all heard about her. Crazy costumes, outrageous hairstyles, and hypnotic beats have made her famous. I'm talking, of course, about Lady Gaga. Perhaps her biggest song yet is the techno tune we know as "Poker Face". The song opens up with a monotonous chain, followed by Gaga's disco-esque droning of the first verse. A few more rhythmatic notes later, and she bursts out with the chorus, a loud explosion of clean sound. Then, the acclaimed chain returns to lead us to the second verse. After reprising the chorus, the beat changes a bit and the bridge begins to play. The music is almost dormant as Gaga's pitch rises and she all but raps out the appealing beat. A a few more choruses later, and we're back with the chain, ending her masterpiece. With a song like "Poker Face", you either love it or you hate it. It's been called "rap but not awesome", "cool but confusing", and "a breathtaking grabber". Now it's up to you to decide your opinion.
Double LifeMy life is a lieDouble Life2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You say you love me
We are sisters, in your eyes
It's all a lie
You don't know me
You don't know what to love
I am so much more than you would expect
My demons haunt me every night
They dance at the foot of my bed
Laughing, smiling, screaming
They know what you never will
I wish we could be sisters
I wish life was as happy as you think
I am so much more than you would expect
If you knew half of what I am,
You would hate me
My life is a lie
And you believe it
I'm sorry for not telling you the truth
I apologize for leading you astray
It's better for the both of us, love
My advice to you--
Leave me be
I'm no good for you
Maybe one day we can be sisters
Until then, stop believing
As far away as you can get
I will bring you nothing but despair
Noshee vs. UnicornOnce upon a time, there was a little girl named Noshee.Noshee vs. Unicorn3 years ago in Emotional More Like This
She had two best friends named Kaluna and Shanashana!
Noshee took them to a magical place called Noshee-Land.
Noshee-Land was filled with unicorns, chickens, smiling sunshines, green clouds, lollipop flowers, and so much more! Oh, and there was butterflies.
But one day, whenever Noshee was taking them into Noshee-Land, there was a big unicorn stampede! And their big horns were after Noshee and Kaluna and Shanashana!
They all had to sing to get out.
AND THE UNICORNS STILL KEPT COMING!
Finally, they sang The Unicorn Song. And The Unicorn Song goes like this:
Happy happy unicorns!
Happy happy uncorns!
Unicorns are happy happy!
Stop pointing your horns at me!
Then all the unicorns STOPPED and looked at them with their big, purple and green eyes. And then they all ate grass and became friends.
Kaluna and Shanashana loved it!

"I HATE NOSHEES!" he screamed, for ever since he learned of the unicorn attack in Unicorn History Class, he wanted to start another war against the Noshees.
Of course, he had no plans. So he just sulked as he tried to think of something.
Meanwhile, Noshee's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandkids-- Nushi, Nishee, Kapishy, Kaposhy, and Kapooshy-- were having a picnic in the Valley of Gumdrops. Of course they hated gumdrops, so they were in a pretty bad mood. For Noshees at least.
"Hey, it's Nashani and Kalbert!" said Kapooshy as she saw her friends coming up. Nashani was Shanashana's great-whatever granddaughter, and Kalbert was Kaluna's great-whatever grandson.

It wasnt her fault, really. It was just the way she was. And she couldnt help that the secrets she was privy to were so interesting. Sometimes she was told, sometimes she guessed, sometimes she eavesdropped, and sometimes she even let her imagination run wild with what-ifs and got those mixed up with the real bits.
But the fact remained that she knew such interesting things about people, and it was only natural that shed want to share things like that.
One of the Fun Fatales didnt know how to keep a secret, and the others would have to pay the consequences.
