A Dreamer's Art

An original poem to encourage all of my dreamers out there during these times. Irreplaceable art exists within you!

A Dreamer's Art

Hey readers! I wanted to place a visual into the minds of those who consider themselves "dreamers." Reality is pretty chaotic right now, but I hope this personification piece gives you some healthy inspiration for working toward your goals. No matter what anyone tells you, the mind is a powerful way to make true art out of our dreams from yesterday. May you shine and thrive in achieving your aspirations. Much love to you all!

Into my mind,

I see art

I know that mine

Can be told apart

Because the night itself

Is like the portal to dreams

Those so full they

Burst at the seams

In a good way, no doubt

However, some don't know

Quite what I mean

That is to say, in my mind

I believe in possibility

I can tell you

No lie, it gets hard

The night can be cold

When I give myself reason

To believe that dreaming is wrong

That's why I stay keeping this

In my head: be strong

Easy? It won't be

Silly? Well, maybe

But if I walked away from

What I wanted to do,

Wouldn't that make me

An even bigger fool, too?

Into my mind,

I see stars

Many upon many

I can't tell them apart

Deep down in my heart

I am aware that my nights

Fair best when I dream

And dream vaster than

Any art gallery

To anyone like me,

It's ok to believe in dreams

You want to know why?

Aside from my take on it,

Dreamers' souls dance

Like embers from a hot coal

They are ignited

Like the fire from wood, newly lightened

A dreamer's mind is

Like a Milky Way, but

How beautiful and unique

It is to know that you can take

This wonder anywhere you want to go?

There will be those who voice that

Dreams are meaningless

Don't harp on their words too much

For inside of you is the strength

And determination you seek

Because a dreamer's heart is

Like the sparkling aura no one can keep

Into my mind,

I see art

May I stay in the clouds this time

For this is only the very start

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
