Midnight Beauty Poem + Happy Halloween!


It is a night of darkness, a night of sorrow,
Even the wolves cry out in their pain. The beautiful one wakens.

Darkness shrouds her walking form,
An everlasting desire.

Her midnight hair cascades over pale and delicate shoulders,
And her full crimson lips shine in the moonlight.

She strides with confidence and eery grace to a graveyard,
When she stops and slowly turns.

As though the world has froze, she pauses.
Looking to the left, then to the right.

Her glossed ruby eyes glare in curiosity,
Once again striding through the graveyard.

The luscious leaves vanish and the trees crack,
As if they knew it was her.
As if they were screaming out in fear of her presence.

The sky seems to darken with every heart-wrenching step,
With every move the coarse dirt of the earth shakes.

But she does not seem to notice at all, the happenings around her,
For she looks straight in front of her, eyes locked on one thing.

She stops yet again, staring at a grave,
That looks like an old door to a castle. She is mesmerized.

Tracing the edges with her long bone like fingers
And black cracked finger nails, she enters the doorway.

She hums an eery and ghostly song as she descends down the stairs,
Then starts to sing a song that goes something like this.

“He was once a beautiful sole..Now he's gone...now he's gone..
He once sang to me at night..But now he's gone... now he's gone..
Forever gone....”

She comes out with a twisted grin that makes the plants shrivel and die,
And laughs as though she has conquered the world.

Never would she be seen again,
Because as her laugh slowly fades, so does her figure.

Now a night of ecstasy, I awaken.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!! I hope you all are enjoying the fall season. I know I am. I've been working on this poem for a while now. I hope you all enjoyed it. I tried not to make it too scary for any younger viewers that may stumble across my blog. I have to say the idea for this poem came fairly easy to me, because I often have nightmares quite like this. In fact, it's very rare that I don't. So welcome to my dreams poem style, guys! I hope you all have a wonderful night.

Imagine This.


A million hearts beat as one. Together creating perfect harmony. No longer do we argue over the differences we behold..but embrace them. War is but yet a wondering thought of the past. Love fills the air like a breathe of oxygen. Not only is it the air we breathe. But the very life we live.

Stay Beautiful

You Are Beautiful♥

How many times do we look in the mirror and tell ourselves or other people how ugly we look? It's common. Am I right? If I had a penny for every time I did that I'd be a billionaire. It's our human nature. We point out our imperfections and flaws and get brought down and insecure because of it. Not only do we do this physically, but mentally too. We think of how stupid, blond, or mean we are. And not only that- we dwell on it. We let it consume us one comment or thought at a time. Eventually our whole world is engulfed with this thought that we are not beautiful at all. But here's the truth, lovely people. Each of us IS beautiful in our own different way. Mentally and Physically. We have characteristics that make us special, that's how we were created. You are unique. You are lovely. You are set apart. And that's what makes you beautiful, friend. That's what makes you, you. I know there are some people out there who probably wonder why I always say "Stay beautiful" at the end of my posts. And that's because there is no one out there who isn't. Each one of us is different in our own ways. We each have different strengths and passions. So what makes you beautiful?♥

"Don't Dwell."
Steve Carrel, Bewitched 

High School.

(After many many days of writers block..)

High school. I could describe it in various ways, but being a senior now I think I've got it down now. It's a time of change in our lives. A time where we discover who we are inside. Where we realize that we can make a difference in this crazy world. A time where we make many mistakes. Sometimes we learn from them, other times we don't. Growing up I thought High School would be the best years of my life. I thought everything would be perfect. I'd be a straight A student. I'd have a nice car. I'd look back and want to start it all over again. It hasn't been that way at all, actually. I've dealt with deaths, sadness, and pain. I've lost loved ones. I've messed up more times than I can count. These years have probably been the worst in my life, to be honest. But there has been good too. I've met many lovely people who have helped me in my walk of life. Ones who have inspired me. One's who have been there for me. I've learned a lot during these three years of mine. I've learned to be the friend you would want in others. I've learned to expect people to let you down. I've learned to put time and effort only into those who would do the same for you. I've learned to be thankful for the little things in life. And I've learned to NEVER take anything for granted. Sure, it's been crazy. And there have probably been more downs than ups. But that's life and it's journey.

Stay Beautiful♥

Forever.

A word that is used and many times abused. I'll love you forever. This moment will last forever. We'll be together forever. But the truth is, nothing in this world lasts forever. Life and everything that goes along with it could be gone in the blink of an eye. Just like that. So what matters the most to you? Now imagine it all going away. What would you have changed while you had the chance? Would would you have said or done while you could? This may sound corny, but trust me here. Make a list of all you would have done differently.
Done? Right on.

Now make it happen.

Stay Beautiful♥

A Heart Made Of Glass.


She is fragile. Her heart is made of glass. It does not break, it shatters. Into a million tiny pieces that take ages to put back together. Don't you know? She is neither understood nor do people want to understand her. She is lonely. She is unloved.

I know I'm always blogging about love and how important it is in our daily lives. But guys..I really do mean it. Love IS indeed all we need. I know many people who are like the girl in my poem. So take the stand. Love others. Make it a passion and a desire in your life today.  

StayBeautiful♥

Inspiration.


He runs in slow motion, numb to the feelings and sights around him. Drenched in his pain he lets out a cry of anger. Of frustration. Of sadness. Why me, he murmurs under his breath. With each year passing, he grows older. His pain grows deeper and more unbearable. He shuts out the world because with each new day comes new tears of his past. He was once so strong. Now only his mask is strong. Underneath lies a man full of pain and hurt.  

Hey guys. So I just got done listening to Green Days “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” Listening to it made me pretty emotional. In my life I've experienced much of my family members and friends dying. It is my one true weakness in this world. Handling the pain that comes with death. So..I had to write a quick poem. I hope you all enjoyed it. This is probably my 9th on this topic, but quite honestly, writing about my struggles in life makes me feel more at peace. I know it is hard to lose a loved one. And I also know that if you don't get up and move on..The feeling inside you will destroy you.

The Key To Maintaining Relationships.


Being a High School student, I've learned the many ups and downs of friendships. I've learned the true meaning of the word "friend". I've learned that sometimes relationships don't work out for one reason or another. Sometimes people go their separate ways. Sometimes people just don't click. Sometimes it is for unknown reasons. But we all know that maintaining relationships is definitely a process and can be quite hard. And while I don't consider myself an expert, I've learned many relationship tips that hopefully help you out as well. So here are my top five. 

1. Relationships Are A Two Way Street.
This one may seem obvious. But I've learned (and am still currently learning) that life is too short to waste time on someone who isn't the least bit interested in putting effort into the relationship. It will leave you broken hearted and crushed. I've realized that a lot of people in this world make this mistake. A true friend WILL text you. WILL call you. WILL be there to lend a listening ear. WILL be there to give you a hug when you need one. It may seem like a lot of work. But that's what friends are for, right?

2. Understanding.
This one is one I feel strongly about. Maybe because I deal with people not understanding me constantly. But here's the deal. If you are someone who judges or puts down your friend for anything, big or small, it is wrong. It may be hard, but TRY to understand someones point of view. You may not agree with it, but that's what makes him/her unique. Don't fight because of something so stupid. Sure, you can offer your opinions at times, but don't push it on them. It will lead to some problems in your future and maybe even lead them to not tell you things anymore. 

3. Learn To Listen.
This is another thing that us selfish humans can fall short of. Sometimes we just love to listen to ourselves talk. Which is weird. But true right? We need to try to listen to people. Because a lot of the time when their going through something and listen, they will do the same.

4. Honesty.
This is a hard one for me. Telling people the truth no matter how hard it is is key to a healthy relationship. Sometimes we want to keep it inside because we're afraid to get hurt. But the truth is, it will most likely hurt them even more if you keep it inside. True friends need to be completely open with each other.

5. Fix Problems As They Arrive.
Often times we tend to let things sink inside but never say them so we can fix our problems. They eventually eat us alive and hurt both ends of the relationship. So don't let yourself fall into the trap of not getting things dealt with. The problem will end up being 10 times more dramatic and hard for you to figure out.

I hope these tips will help you all out. And just remember. Relationships are important to your journey in this crazy world. They will stabilize you. They will offer advice. They will be there when you need them.

It Takes You.


It just takes one stare. One word. One hit. To change her life forever. It takes YOU. It takes you taking your problems out on her. It takes you to emotionally scar her for life. It takes YOU. She'll looks back on her life, regretting that she ever looked your way. Regretting that she ever went to High School. Possibly regretting she ever lived. All it takes is YOU.

This month is National Bully Awareness month. I hope you will all join me in the stand against bullying. It is something that I feel strongly about. Life is too wonderful to be picked on because your different or simply for no reason at all. Life is also too wonderful to sit around and do nothing about it.  

Stay Beautiful♥

Judging.


When you call a girl ugly, remember that she probably took forever to put on her make up to to fit in and try to feel loved for once.

When you make fun of the lonely man, remember that his wife might have died.

When you put down the prostitute, remember that anyone can change. 

When you roll your eyes at the kid who tries to fit in by being funny, remember that all he wants is to be accepted.

When you judge the homeless, remember that they might have been in your shoes not too long ago.

I hope you all will take some time to know someones journey before judging them. I hope you will take time to love the man who may not love you back. I hope you will never forget that we are all equal in Gods eyes. Homeless or not. Heartless or not. We are born to love. So as the famous words of Nike, just do it. Make it the life you live and the air you breath. 

“Judging is preventing us from understanding a new truth. Free yourself from the rules of old judgments and create the space for new understanding.”

The Secrets Of Being Truly Happy.


Life is full of ups and downs that can change how we think and act. It can make us better people, or can tear us apart. Happiness is something we strive for daily. Wanting a car, having enough money to pay off the bills, getting that one thing for Christmas that you truly wanted, these things are some of many that lead us to believe we can achieve happiness by simply receiving. Sure, those things will make you happy temporarily..but not in the long run. So how can you achieve true eternal happiness? These are some things that I believe can help us out. The first thing is watch you're thoughts. We think about many things during the day and can lead ourselves to believe that everything we think is true. Like that you're ugly, or prideful, or rude. But the truth is, you're mind can play games with you. It can lead you to believe something that is totally false. So make sure to think happy thoughts and don't take you're thoughts too seriously. A quote that I think sums this up is this.
The mind is a place of it's own. And in itself can make a heaven of hell and a hell of heaven.”
-John Milton
Find you're purpose. Many people would say to know God, to change someones life, or to go into a major company as a CEO. Every person has different purposes and talents that we've been called to pursue and use for the good of others. That's what makes us so unique. Some to inspire, some to show kindness, some to be a servant. What is YOUR purpose?
See the little things in life. True happiness does not just exist in buying a house or getting married. It's the little things that go unnoticed that can also be life changing. It will change you're point of view. It will inspire you. ♥
Don't dwell on the past or future...but rather on the here and now. I think everyone can confess that most of the time we are thinking thoughts about the past or future. In the past.. What did I say to her? Why did I do that? Why was I ever into him? These things can tear us apart. I know they have for me. Also the future. What am I going to do about that situation? What am I going to do with my life? Focus on the now! Because we only have ONE life to live. Why live it regretting and worrying?
Focus on what you have rather than what you don't. Often times we become used to things like a house, clothes, water, and food. We don't realize that there are millions of people living on a street corner starving to death. So be thankful for each and every thing that has been put in our lives. We are truly blessed.
Be kind. This one is obvious but I don't think that we can truly say we're nice to everyone. It's hard sometimes! But just remember that God calls us to love. Even if you don't believe in God, kindness and compassion will make you a happier and overall better person. Don't look at kindness as a chore..but rather an opportunity to grow. There are always going to be those people who want to bring us down. Sometimes for no reason at all. But loving them and being kind usually will make them do the same to you. Remember..The more you give the more you will receive. Focus on the better person you want to be rather than changing for somebody else.
The last thing is don't criticize yourself. Often times that can be the cause of us being unhappy. Looking in the mirror and looking at all of our imperfections is scarring. Rather than look to the negative..tell yourself what you love about yourself. Tell yourself that yes, I am not perfect, but I do have good qualities. This will change you're point of view on life and make you feel better about yourself. And who doesn't need that?
Lastly I wanted to say that maintaining true happiness is not an easy process. In fact in may be the hardest thing you'll ever do. But the end factor is you being a better person and loving people from you're heart, not just because you have to. Because it's life. Crap happens. And why not be able to know how to deal with it? :) 

Hey everyone. Thought I would share this letter with you. Originally I wrote it for myself..but I thought hey, why not share it with you guys? I hope it inspires you somehow. I hope it makes you realize that it's never too late to change who you are. Your never too far gone to become a better and happier person.

Being True To Yourself.


Something that bothers me in our world today is trends. Now I'm not saying I'm against all of them. In fact, some are pretty freakin' awesome. Like the Hunger Games? Heck yeah. Bringing back the 80's? Yes please. But these days, our world is overtaken by trends. It leaves us not knowing who we really are inside. Life isn't meant to become someone your not. It's too short to pretend. One of the best people (in my opinion) who lives this out is Johnny Depp. Now I'm not just saying this because I love the guy to death. Well maybe. But take his style for example. Do you ever see any man walk around looking like him? Not really. He's unique. He's different. I look up to people like that. Because anyone can walk around living by trends. Anyone can conform. But it takes guts to stay true to yourself and not change because of other people.

A quote I think sums this up pretty well is this.

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
~Judy Garland

The Blink Of An Eye.


You want so badly to experience life and all if has to offer. What are you waiting for? We dream not so we can dream, but rather so we can live dreams out. They are not meant only for the imagination. But for our lives. They are meant to bring happiness. Courageousness. They are meant to inspire. We have a mental list of all the things we want to do. What is holding you back? When the things in life scare you. When you think you can't handle them. What are you waiting for? What is life when you're not truly living? Live life like it is your last waking day. Last waking hour. Last waking minute. Cherish each moment. Smile in the midst of your pain. Live as though your life is the greatest thing that has been given to you. And do the things that scare you the most. Because it could all be taken from you in the blink of an eye.

What This Blog Is About And Little Bit About Me

Hey Friends.

So I now have two blogs. One for school, and one for my writing pleasure. If you haven't noticed already, this is my writing pleasure one. I didn't realize how much I loved blogging until A couple weeks ago when I started school. I realized how freeing it feels to post something that means a lot to me. I feel like blogging may just be something I'll be continuing for a long time. 

So you may be asking..What is this blog going to be about?

Well..to be honest I don't quite know yet. But what I do know is that it will probably be filled with my writings. (Songs, poems, stories, etc..) I have been a constant writer for about 6 years now and can't imagine life without it. It is the way I sort out my crazy life. It is a way that I can free myself from whatever I'm feeling. It is my inspiration. Besides that, I may be adding comedy type of writings, what I've been up to, what I've been loving for each month, quotes I'm into, songs, anything like that.

Another question you may be asking yourself...Who is Mak? 

To define me would be like making a fire in the rain. It's not really possible to fully get me. But I shall try to give you guys a few things about me that will help you figure me out a bit. 

I am a 17 year old girl who has a passion for writing and music. I will write just about anything and everything that I'm feeling at the moment. My favorite music includes Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Stryper, Journey, Skid Row, and Nirvana. Anything Rock. I can honestly say I'm the only person I know who is 17 and likes that style of music.. but that's OK with me. I am obsessed with makeup. I love trying out new looks and products daily. I am a christian and proud. I love God with all my heart. He is my reason for living and the air I breathe. My favorite animal is the Panda. The cutest thing to ever walk the earth. I am a social butterfly who loves my friends and family with all of my heart, but often times a loner who loves be by herself, listen to music, and write. I LOVE Johnny Depp. I am really big into Youtube. My favorite Youtubers include Missglamorazzi, Luke Conard,  Landon Austin, Macbarbie07, ijustine, Weezy waiter, Olen Rogers, and Joey Graceffa. Just to name a few. Speaking of Joey..I am a huge anime person. My favorite currently is Azura Na Kiss, in which I just finished. Crunchyroll, anyone? 

And there you have it! A little bit about me. Often times you'll probably see me post about the things I've mentioned. 

I hope you all are doing well and checking back often for new posts. I can't wait to start this blogging journey.

Stay beautiful♥
