GLM Poem

Toph's picture

I didn't have time to write a story like I wanted :P And I might not be able to submit my drawings because my scanner isn't working and I can't find batteries for my digital camera. So, here's my poem! :/

Name: Michelle
Oasis name: Toph
Location: Missouri
Bio: In my younger years, I never questioned the options of sexuality, but perhaps that was because I wasn't interested in sex :P Freshman year, I had to ask a friend what bi meant. Hearing her description, I thought, "Hey, that sounds like me!" So, some thinking, questioning, wondering, and three years later, I am a happy senior who is comfortable with being lesbian! :D

There is something in us that hides from the moment of our birth
Something that may makes us feel of greater or lesser worth
But it all depends on how you perceive that trait
Because no matter what it is, you can make it something great

Yeah, it's simple and short. It's an epigram because we were required to write one for my AP class, and I tried to make it about being gay, but only I was aware of it. It's supposed to rhyme because that's what epigrams are: 2 or 4 lines that rhyme and are about life. So yeah.

The two words that

The two words that immediately come to mind are 'sweet' and 'quaint'...

I like it, though. It definately made me smile. Very to-the-point. I can see it nestled right in with some artwork. Snuggly-like. ^-^

Whatever I did, I didn't do it.

Toph, are you freaking

Toph, are you freaking kidding me? That's ALL you're going to submit? Come on girl! Submissions are probably going to be open for another couple of weeks. That's plenty of time to write something else or do i bit of artwork or something. At least give it a try, won't you? Even if you can just get a rough draft, the editiors will help you polish it up.

If you can't do it, it's not the end of the world, but I do wish you'd at least give it a shot.

Well, there are a lot of scholarships I'm working on, so I've been pressed for time. But one scholarship I am writing about being queer, so the deadline for that is March 1st. So, I may try. And I'll try to take pics of my drawings. Just gotta find batteries..

~May the spirits guide your every move...to assure you please her in all the right places XD
