Devils on your Shoulder

Posted: May 20, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in Once in a Life Time, PeytonP

They say America’s Sweetheart,
but I know the real you.
Striving to be normal, but let’s face it,
that’ll never come true.

 

Don’t believe that, you’ve worked so hard,
and endured so much.
Look how far you’ve come,
you just can’t give it all up!

 

Gabby, you’ve stumbled and you’ve fell.
You have bled and you have broken.
Let’s not forget the harsh words and ridicule.

That’s not true; you have preserved and carried on.
My! Look how you’ve healed,
Don’t sweat those people, they’re just there to bring you down.

Look at those blisters and calluses!
Who would want to hold hands with you?

Those are battle scars, to remind you how far you’ve come.
Who cares about boys, when you have gold medals to win?

Wouldn’t you love to eat whatever you wanted?

There’s always a price to pay, who cares it’s bad for you anyway?

So?

Gabby!

Decide?!

Do you stay or do you go

Good Cards. Bad Card

Posted: May 10, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in Once in a Life Time, PeytonP

In life we are dealt
Good and Bad cards,
but just like any good card player
you don’t give up after one bad hand.
You strive,
You preserver,
And
Smile through every
drop,
fall,
bad tumble pass,
loss.
These make you a gymnast.
They make you
Who you are

Once in a lifetime.

Posted: May 10, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in Once in a Life Time, PeytonP

Once in a life time…
You’ll never know
How it happened.
Mama always told
Me
To follow my
Dreams!
Everyone told us
We were crazy for
Believing
I would go this far
Never would we
Believe
I could make this
Dream
My
Reality.

My Dreams

Posted: May 10, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in Once in a Life Time, PeytonP

To fulfill
My dreams
I would move
A thousand miles
Away.
I would leave behind my friends and family.
The Partons,
An all
White
Host family
Would take me in.
I never felt unwelcomed
Or
Out of place
I went from the baby of
My family
To
The big sister
Of theirs.
To be ALL
I COULD BE.
To make
My
Dreams
Come true!
I did all
Of this
By
Age 14.

My First Cartwheel.

Posted: May 10, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in Once in a Life Time, PeytonP

My first cartwheel…
I was scared,
but I trusted my hands would catch me.
Upside down
for a split second.
Until
My feet collided
with Earth
Again.
I could feel
my hair in my face,
Giddiness
in my voice,
Excitement
in my eyes.
I wanted to do it
Again.

I wish I didn’t know

Again.
It happened again,
I thought it was all over.
I thought this part of our lives were done.
That we wouldn’t venture back down this road.
I’m not sure if you think I’m stupid,
Maybe you just don’t care.
My family was once whole,
Now it is broken.
I really don’t blame anyone.
Maybe that’s the way it’s meant to be.
I’m just a kid, it’s none of my concern,
you’ll always be my father and you’ll always be my mother.
At least that’s what I’m told.
I’m not a baby anymore, I know what goes on.
Life has took yet another unexpected turn.
So, I’m just left here waiting, waiting and wishing I didn’t know.

ALONE

Posted: March 26, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in PeytonP

Every scar has a secret,
just like every life has a past.
The stars above so majestic and never ending,
and you realize you are only a blimp in time.
That no one can hold your hand,
we all must face it alone.
A moment in life when all was cold,
and time itself stood still.
Not a breath was taken,
not an eyelid blinked.
Not a smile was shown,
because we’re all in this alone.
Someone can tell you it’s all okay,
but that doesn’t mean you listen.
Nothing Else Matters When You Feel Like You’re All Alone
