“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”
I’ve decided to post a collection of all my poetry from Twitch and Jerk. I am starting at the beginning from when I founded TaJ. Here they are, in three parts. The first part is from the beginning through June 2011. The second part is July-December 2011. And the third part is January 2012 through now. I hope you enjoy them. :)

Hi everyone! I made up this poem. I hope you like it. I am smiling. I am dreaming. My future is gleaming. My heartbeat is cheering to the wonders I am steering. My life is full of love and joy. Like a girl getting her very first toy. Tears of happiness comfort me as the beauty of the world, I see.

God is my truth, my savior, my dove. My family supports me, some from up above. Love is what I wish for but cannot have yet. There’s no need for money, for gambling, for bets. I want peace within the world that’s my home. I want to travel the world, Paris, London, Athens, Rome. I believe in what’s right to me and my heart. I do not want to judge those who differ in their part. My life is exactly like rain on a rose. My happiness is filled with abundance while my misery goes.

My second mom is having a rough time with the loss of her sister, so here is a poem for her: Loss is a hard thing to come by and sometimes you have to just get out and cry. Life is a treasure, a memory, a tear. Death is a sad time that is always feared. Without loss there would be no gain. It is the relationship between love and pain I love you very much don’t lose yourself. I am here with you whenever you need help.

A heart full of tears can be mended back to place. Someone who is hurt can be helped to home base. Love for others is a miracle whether it’s seen that way or not. All it takes is a simple idea or thought. Rivers flow by the wind and enthusiasm that they have. Their heart, just like ours, is made in two halves. So, look at the bright side. The beauty that we see. The best thing to say is, “I’m proud to be me!”

Even though the day is cloudy, even if it seems sad. Think of all the miracles that make you feel so glad. Whether it’s your children, your family or your friends. Or if you fought a sickness and made it end. The day may seem like a day to stay down and stay low. But, if you stay strong and keep holding on, far is how you’ll go.

Living and loving is important at this time. The love we give and get can make our hearts chime. Yet living is the most important and let me tell you why. People who get to know you start to figure out and try. Don’t give up on hope and faith. It helps you live and grow. There may be some people out there you just may want to get to know.

It’s a beautiful day as I see myself fly. Over the world’s beauty, I could cry. It’s happy, it’s sad, it’s unique. It becomes the sound of a symphony. Yes the world may have its ups and downs, but we know there doesn’t have to be a crown. We are who we are and that’s how it will be. Think of how much love this world will see.

A deep breath I take in, the cool sweet air affects my thoughts. Cleanliness, purity, shining example. It all comes from calming down. Believing in yourself. You are who you are made to be. Your personality tells it all. Live through your masterpiece. Show the world your beauty and grace. Your love for those who need to be loved. You will see a great result, and you will be fulfilled.

The trees glow with light as the sun shines bright. The dew from the leaf glistens with glee. The light, cool breeze makes you want to breathe. The fresh air fills hearts with care. That’s the beauty of morning.

Though I may not always be strong or brave, my heart is as big as a tidal wave. My soul glows like the moon at night. In school, I am very bright. The same is with all of those who think opposite. They don’t believe they’re full of wit. If you believe in yourself, then you are close to a great future and the ones you love most.

Your life’s a blank canvas, full of imagination. Your mind is full of wonders, intelligence, concentration. Your heart is full of emotion and desire. Your abdomen is full of passion and fire. Your hair is the wind that flows. Your legs are the support of helping you grow. You are a masterpiece. You are meek. You are the sun that shines down on the unique.

As the sun rises, there are even more surprises. As the dew falls, things come out big and small. They don’t mind my tics, my jerk, my twitch. The morning is the best, I feel at rest. No pretending, no ending. The beginning is winning. My heart sings, the birds flap their wings. The sun shines, my life is mine. I am me. I am different. I am unique. And I will NEVER give up on my life.

I may be one person in the world, just as any boy or girl. But, I am special and I am me, one day people will see. They can laugh, they can hate, but one day they’ll appreciate. They’ll understand me for who I am. Instead of “no” they’ll tell me I can. Because I can and I will be the person I am meant to fulfill. One day I will change the world for every boy and every girl.

This is a poem for my second mom: You’re funny and witty. You’re wise and nice. You always know how to break the ice. You care for my mom and you care for me. You always see what the naked I alone cannot see. You are technical and fun. You are beautiful and strong. You make feel in the world I belong. You have saved my life. I owe you forever. I hope, in our family, we always stay together.

All who have TS, we are not alone. It may seem like that day to day everywhere, even home. If we stick together through the hard times, then we will feel better because of those whose hearts are kind. We may be different, but we all will start to shine. And then into the rest of the world’s hearts we will intertwine.
Hope you all are having a beautiful day! :)
