What’s Wrong with Him?- Kelsey Crum

Posted: June 2, 2014 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

Why isn’t he speaking?

Something must be wrong!

He’s a seven-year-old boy

And he can’t speak fluently.

Is he retarded?

Why can’t he speak?

Retardation must be the answer.

Now Einstein is considered

To be the smartest man in the world.

His parents were extremely wrong.

Even thought he didn’t speak

Until the age of nine,

And his parents believed he was retarded,

His brain wasn’t affected.

He was a genius.

His Abnormal Brain- Kelsey Crum

Posted: June 2, 2014 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

April 18, 1955
Einstein took his last breath
Thomas Stoltz Harvey
Without permission,
Removed Einstein’s brain,
And took it home to study.
That brain was the secret behind a great man
As he dissected it,
He realized that some parts of the brain
Were abnormally large
(OF COURSE A GENIUS WOULD HAVE A BIG BRAIN!)
He had more glial cells in the region of the brain that synthesizes information,
The inferior parietal lobe,
(often associated with mathematical abilities!)
Was larger than normal.
But some parts were missing!
He lacked a Sylvian fissure
His unusual brain allowed neurons
To communicate better
Other studies show that it was denser than normal.
Even though his brain was missing some parts,
The parts he did have were large enough to make up for it.

A Slice of Life- Kelsey Crum

Posted: March 27, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

What’s as confusing as everyday life in general?

Can be as smooth as honey?

Then, hard as a rock?

Comes quickly,

But with no way to control it?

Can take you places you’ve never seen,

Or leave you right where you stand?

Just when you think you know the answer,

Someone pulls the rug from under your feet.

Older, wiser people

Always try to give advice,

Sometimes, it just makes matters worse.

Don’t stress about it too much.

Because in the blink of an eye,

It’s done and over with.

It’ll all be in the past.

A slice of life called

Decision.

I Asked To Forget About You- Kelsey Crum

Posted: March 27, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

I asked to forget about you,

But you still pop up in my mind.

I gave you all I could give,

But in the end it wasn’t enough.

I gave you everything you wanted,

But you were never happy.

I gave you my heart,

But you ended up shattering it.

I tried to make things work,

To not be so upset,

To just keep trying,

Nothing ever worked.

So I gave up,

Which depressed me,

You don’t know

How much your words hurt me.

And you don’t know

That my heart still longs for you

Even though my mind screams, “NO!”

You don’t know

How much you mean to me.

If you would at least

Tell me how you feel,

Instead of being distant,

It would give me closure

Just to know how you feel.

I asked to forget about you,

But my heart won’t let me.

Words You’ll Never Hear- Kelsey Crum

Posted: March 27, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

You slipped through my grasp

Like sand through an hourglass

How did I let you go?

I love you, I miss you

But you’re in someone else’s arms

And with tears threatening to pour from my eyes

Like an ocean

I say words that you’ll never hear.

Forget the words I said when we parted

The feelings are still 100% there for me,

But you say no, they aren’t there for you anymore.

How did I let this happen again?

If I could give you anything,

I would take everything I could find,

Every star in the sky,

Every drop of the salty ocean,

Every single blade of grass,

Every ray of sunshine on a bright summer morning,

So you will never go without,

So maybe you’ll understand

That I love you way more than she ever will,

She’s a child,

She’ll break your heart,

Again, I’m saying

Words you’ll never hear.

Within- Kelsey Crum

Posted: January 30, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

There’s a place within me

That cries like a rainy day

That  hurts like the wound from a knife’s blade

Smooth, but sharp and malicious

There’s a place within me

That continually reaches for happiness,

But never succeeds.

That sighs in defeat

But always tries again.

And as my mind wanders

To places out of this world

I slip into the realm of my thoughts

And I become my inner self

Crying,

     Hurting,

     Reaching,

     Sighing,

     And

     Trying

Until I am awakened…

I am myself again.

Somewhere in This World- Kelsey Crum

Posted: January 30, 2013 by kelseycrum2015 in KelseyC

Somewhere in this world

A new life is beginning,

A baby breathes its first breath,

Somewhere in this world

Connections are forming,

Somewhere in this world

People are happy

With what they have,

Somewhere in this world

Two hearts are connecting,

Somewhere in this world

People are finding each other,

Two becoming one.

But also,

Somewhere in this world

A life is ending,

An old man breathes his last shaky breath,

Somewhere in this world

Connections are breaking,

Somewhere in this world

People are sad and hurting,

Somewhere in this world

Two hearts are falling away from each other,

At least one of them ripped and shattered,

Somewhere in this world

People are losing each other,

Falling out of love,

Falling into

What?
