Snake's Legendary Mission Part I By Andre Jones

Snake’s Mission, Part I

Last night was just the way I wanted it. I didn’t do anything except play video games on my Wii and on my lavish black netbook pc. After fully enjoying my wonderful games I decided to play Super Smash Brothers Brawl. While playing, it felt very strange like as if I wasn’t just playing it, but also being hypnotized then I fell into a trance.
“Snake. Snake can you hear me?” questioned the Colonel.
“Yes Colonel. I can hear you just fine.” answered Solid Snake.
“We have an invitation for you in a tournament. Are you familiar with Super Smash Brothers Brawl?” Colonel asked.
“Super Smash Brothers Brawl? Oh that Nintendo thing right?”, questioned Snake.
“Correct! Where are you now?” interrogated Colonel.
“I’m out on this stage hiding in a box it looks Roman.” answered Snake.
“Ah, you’re on a stage called “Kid Icarus” It has the resemblance of a Roman structure. This stage is named after a game of the same name. This was about an angel named Pit that would go and defeat the terrible Medusa. Actually you might get the chance to see Pit if you do just don’t get beaten. Pit’s no joke he is really toughened up a bit. So if you ever do fight him just be careful. You got that?” Colonel responded.
“Got it loud and clear sir!” Snake called back. As Snake responds the Colonel puts a picture of Mario on the screen. He then asks.
“Snake, you know who that is?”
“You’re kidding right? It’s Mario! Speaking of Mario, he’s out here fighting with Link, Kirby, and Pikachu.” Snake answered as if it were an easy question on a first grade math test.
“So I suppose that you’re going to participate in the tournament?” questioned Colonel.
“Yeah I am” Snake answered.
“All right! Well….. This is it, Snake. It’s do or die time. If you win the crew and I will throw a party for you as a celebration. Are you up for it Snake? Oh and my codec frequency is 140.85. You got that?” interrogated Colonel. While loading his guns and weaponry, Snake responds.
“Got it Colonel!” as he comes out of hiding in his box, Snake exclaims in a menacing voice, “IT’S SHOWTIME!”
On the grey battlefield platform, there are Roman pillars with vines growing up them. The sky above turns from day to night and night to day instantly. Everyone is there: Mario, Link, Pikachu, and Kirby. They stare at Snake. He is much taller than them, in a full body suit of armor, and a load of weapons strapped to his body. Mario “combos” Link, and sends him flying across the platform. Snake watches on in disbelief. I could beat these guys without a problem. He tucks his body in and rolls near Kirby. He jumps up and grabs Kirby by the neck. He does a body slam. Kirby flies six feet up in the sky. Kirby’s flight sounds like the wind as he comes down: smash. They begin brawling together with a fierce thrusting throw from Mario to Link. Link is thrown completely off the platform, but somehow manages to make it back on the surface. As soon as Mario tries to blow off a fireball, Snake quickly comes behind him and gets him in a chokehold and forcefully throws him off the surface. Like a sack of potatoes, Mario goes flying off the platform.
“AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH,” he screams as he explodes to his death. The triforce carrier Link, the electrical pokemon, Pikachu, the hero of Dream Land, Kirby, and now, the legendary Solid Snake, all brawl it out.

A Mystery By Matthew Travis McDuffie

A Mystery

What is life
What is death
if I’m incomplete
Where’s the rest?
I feel half
half of what i am.
I feel like the other me
Is not on this land.
I thought about it
long and hard.
my life is a mystery.
Is this what it should be?

What if... By Sasha Richardson

As I sit under this tree,
hiding me from the sun
I wonder what if.
What if I had acted
differently towards you.
What if I choose to
go to sleep under here.
Would it be okay?
What if things don’t work
out for the better?
As I sit under this tree,
hiding me from the sun
I wonder what if…

Bowlow By Craig Collymore


I have a very large room and the first thing I see is my king size bed.
The only thing I share my bed with is my dog, Bowlow.
Bowlow walks into my room, stops, looks, and jumps in my bed.
Bowlow likes to sleep with me, and I feel very protected when I sleep.
I look at him- he looks at me.
When my dog sits,
he is 3 feet high, he is white and grey,
his paws, soft and gushy, are the size of the palm of my hands.
His eyes are brown.
Bowlow barks and howls when the door bell rings.
I think my dog is very protective of me.
When I come home, my dog jumps on me—he stands up to my chest.
I like to come home to see my dog.

Smiling by William Harris

Smiling is infectious you can catch it like the flu
when someone smiled at me I started smiling too

when I passed the corner someone saw my grin
when he smiled I realized I passed it onto him

I thought about that smile and realized its worth
a single smile just like mine could travel round the earth

so if you feel a smile begin don't leave it undetected
lets start an epidemic and get the whole world infected

Love poem by Derick Diaz

Love is the simplest word to explain,
yet so hard to express,
love is blind yet so kind.
It is deceiving
for leaving my heart bleeding.
It yearns for someone new
every time my heart turns blue.
My adrenaline rush
just gets crushed
every time the butterflies come along.
All of the lies from these girls makes me wanna hurl.
It takes so much trust
for me take make a girl a must
then it'll be a plus in my day
when all she has to say to me is hey
and all of my fears go away.
Love, to some its the simplest thing,
but to me that word means everything.

What’s In My Head By Laron Newton

I done know what’s in my head
Color Red
New Paper
a Lion
Hear talking
I see TV
I smile
I see Myself
I write: My Pencil
I see Girl
I hear people laugh
I think about people, good people
People play games
I see the chair
I listen to people come
in the Zone
I see love
David have homework to do
I feeling the room cooling from
the window-
I feel fine
