Like a Cloud

An original poem written with dreams in mind. Open your perspective to reach your goals!


Hey readers! I wrote this piece to motivate looking at even the smallest things for some motivation for personal goals. Sometimes, we all get caught up in looking at detailed plans over taking a risk. I am not saying don't plan (I feel best when goals are planned!), but don't forget to give yourself the opportunity to take a different approach with things. You never know what more inspiration can be uncovered. As always, go live out your dreams! Much love.

I saw a cloud in the sky,

And I wondered, 'how freely they slide'

The expanse of this one was noticeably large

As it smoothly glided across the earth's dome

That cloud moved so effortlessly on it's own

Without worry someone wouldn't leave it alone

I so badly wished to be as lazily unrestricted

As that cloud, seeing all there was to see

Those days, I felt like the things I wanted

Fell out of my grasp, being left and forgotten

The places I wanted to see and go to

Where all but ignored and undefined

Again and again, I tried to find new perspectives

Hoping, one day, I could get the impression

That, like a cloud, I could see all there was

And be all that I sought to

'How much does a cloud see in a day?'

I questioned out loud

Yet, a thought occurred to me on how:

I can regain those dreams again

If I truly believe I can achieve it

Though a cloud's journey is different

I began to see that there was no limit

To how much I needed to have faith in myself

And where I wanted to go

For I can do anything

If my mind is as opened

As the sky above me

My dreams can transform into anything

As the clouds drifting along in the breeze

All it takes it a little push within me

Who knows what can be propelled just by that

However, not giving myself the chance

Keeps me restricted and closed in

I knew that if I thought of that cloud

I, too, could accomplish any possibility

That cloud inspired the fearlessness

Blooming inside of me

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!"
