Hey everyone who reads my blog, I just wanted to show you a random poem that I wrote for a writing class this past school year.
The world is full of emptiness
Empty hearts full of hate
Empty minds plotting deceit
Any help that has come has come too late.
Then the rain comes
After endless toil
It washes limb and life
Destroying everything with the soil.
Finally after forty days and nights
We emerge from our home of wood
And in this new and empty world
There is hope of good.
The people’s faith in me was empty
They seemed so confident
But now in danger they panic
Am I really the one you sent?
With a mass behind and a mass in front
I don’t know what to do!
I can’t do this on my own
But that’s why my faith is in You.
With a simple lift of a staff
The waters make a path!
The ocean is emptied; its floor is clearly shown
While Egyptians see God’s wrath
The world is now empty
The savior has left
He was killed by his own people
Forgiving us with His last breath
In sadness, we make our way to the grave
But what can we do when we get there?
We crest the hill and gasp
The stone is rolled away and we can do nothing but stare
Inside are guards dressed in white
What do they mean ‘he isn’t here’?
The tomb is empty
And there is nothing to fear.
Is this easy to tell who I'm talking about?
That's all for now, Jocelyn :)

As I said in my last post, I have a cold. One of the worst I have had in a while. SO bad, that I am actually doing something I never thought I'd do-I am losing my voice.
Although I m getting a little better now, it is still really bad. On Sunday I would start to try to talk in a slightly more normal tone (normal meaning I didn't sound like a caveman) and my voice disappeared. I would try to talk 'high' and my voice just wasn't there.
This leads into my thinking point-Phones.
Phones are really cool and everything but they OBVIOUSLY have some sound problems. A couple of days ago, when I was still talking like cave-Joss (my voice about ten octaves lower than usual-to give you a glimpse of how that sounds, my voice is lower than most thirteen year old guys I know) the phone rings.
I answer the phone.
"Hi, is this Catey?"
Ok. My older sister Catey, has the highest voice in the world, almost an octave higher than mine. She is a social butter fly and could be labeled as a 'Miss Susy Sunshine'. And with the tone my voice was at that day, I'm surprised that lady didn't ask if it was my dad.
Just something new to think about, which brings me to my next point; which is better-phones, or e-mail?
I don't have time to get into long drawn-out arguments right now, but maybe next time.
I'll be back soon with some more stuff to think about.
I'm sorry if I've shocked you with writing this many posts in-was that only two days? If you end up going into shock and have to go to the hospital, I'm sorry. You can leave a complaint in the 'comment' section.
