Fun Poems in a School of Fish


The Octopus
I’d like to see the octopus
In school, all dressed and neat.
Which are his arms, which are his legs?
How will he take his seat?

The Crab
Oh, look at teacher, Mrs, Crab,
With eyes on stalks, revolving
She looks with care wherever she steps,
For she goes sideways, walking.

The Sea Horse
The sea horse looks a little queer,
His tail is curled and long,
His head has horns, and also his skin
I think he’s shaped all wrong.


The Snail
He carries his house upon his head.
He’s neither feathered nor furred.
He uses his tongue for a shoe of a slipper
And therefore can’t say a word.

The Starfish
I’d hate to be a starfish
In school on Christmas day
They’d hang me up on the Christmas tree
I couldn’t go out to play.

Depression: How to get away with it.


All of us have experienced or are experiencing the tough spots where we almost give up. Without the feeling of growth, more of us will suffer from chronic or even malignant depression.

A depressed person is a characteristic of a paralyzed mind. He is not thinking on how to cope in dealing with the situations or the feelings. He is statically taking things in unmoved manner. When one is in depression, he surely loses his balance in his life for he lets to magnify and be ignite with his problems. Now, this is indeed a deep depression.

Life is the way we make it. I believe that how one maneuvers to drive his life, if he leads it to goodness or to bad actions, then he pays the price for the thing he chooses. But we are endowed with all the goodness in our hearts and minds. We plan to taste the sweetness of life. You can choose to be happy and be contented. Also, you can allow sadness and despair to rule your emotions.

The best way is of course, to choose the better and the best in life. That is why, it is all in the state of mind. Depression is just in the state of mind if you let it in. If you want nothing will happen in your life, then you deserve the infliction of depression. And worst, it will really ruin everything in you, your morale, your personality, your dreams and even your spirit. Thus, before anything bad that will happen to you, be your strength and let the love of God dwell in you.

Some people lose hope if their spiritual growth is stagnant. It is the message of God that will lift you higher and when you are full in spirit, depression will not havoc your life even in a single instance. The best way too, is to change the way you think. Don’t be a pessimist. Be an optimist. Problems are there always and there is no way that it will stop harming you or challenging you. All you need to do is make certain of your decisions. Think deeper and believe in yourself that you can do it.

How lucky depression is when you let it in your life. Would you just allow yourself for depression to ruin you? Life is beautiful. Think about it.

A story to reflect on: About Heaven and Hell


I have read this story which authored from an anonymous person. As I gone through reading the story, I have realized that it speaks more on the atmosphere of what Heaven and hell like. I am sure that this story is something to reflect on. Here is the full copy of the story.

Face to Face with Heaven and Hell

The old priest, who was dying, said a prayer that his soul may rest in peace. He was troubled about Heaven and Hell. What were they like? God knows he had spent a lifetime preaching about them. Now, at age 84, he wasn’t sure.

Dimly he saw two figures at the foot of his bed. He recognized them. The tall muscular one was Moses, and the other was Peter the fisherman. When they called to the priest, he got up and followed, walking through the wall of his bedroom. Silently they led him through the galaxies of the night sky. In a far-off place they stopped before a big house.

“The kingdom of God is made of many mansions,” Peter explained. “So too is Hell. Step inside. We shall show you the first room of Satan’s palace.”

As the priest walked in, his ears were assaulted by a babble of complaints. Many people were seated at a large table. In the center, there was a big pot of the priest’s favorite dish, beef stew. Although everyone in Hell had a spoon and could reach the pot, the people were starving. The spoon handles that were attached to their hands were twice as long as their arms. They could catch the stew but they couldn’t bring it to their lips. The cries of the starving were so loud that the priest begged to be taken away.

Peter and Moses took him to another mansion in a faraway place. Moses invited the priest to step inside the outer room of Paradise. There the priest saw a similar large table surrounded by many people. In the center was a huge pot of beef stew. The spoon handles were too long for human arms, but there were no cries of complaint. No one was starving. All the people were feeding each other.

Projecting through with your Voice (Public Speaking)


Your voice is the index of your personality. It reveals to the world the kind of person you are.

The term that refer to the mechanics of voice production are essentially important for you to know. Your voice is your important tool of communication. Without it, you can’t speak; with it, you can express your thoughts, your feelings, your desires, your problems in hundreds of different ways. You can shout, murmur, or whisper; you can grumble, plead, coo, rant, wheedle, exult, complain, laugh, or growl. Why not become acquainted now with this amazing instrument, your voice, which you will use all your life, and with some of the technical terms that apply to it?

A good voice has a pure tone. A voice may not be rich or melodious but it can be pleasing if it’s pure. The impure of voice is shrill, hard and harsh arising from constriction in the throat and neck.

In order to have a good voice, allow your diaphragm to supply the power for the voice. Constricting the muscles of the neck and throat causes the shrill, harsh or hard voice. Speaking without force or power produces dull, weak and inarticulate speech.

You should keep your throat open and you should loosen the jaw. The sound will come out clearly and distinctly. A good voice is strong, it comes from the power ensuring from the whole abdominal region.

A good voice gives out a normal pitch that is adapted to your particular voice mechanism. Employing a too high pitch level results in a piping and thin voice. The rough and growling voice results from using a low pitch level.

You can discover your normal pitch by stopping your ears with your finger, then humming rather, loudly up and down the scale. As you go along the way, you discover a pitch level at which the sound is louder and fuller than any other level. This is your normal pitch.

A good voice is flexible. It means the readiness of the muscles of the throat, face, jaw and lips to respond. Lack of flexibility in the voice results in the nasal twang, thinness of voice, monotone voice and poor articulation.

Flexibility of voice gives color, warmth and meaning to your voice. Be sure to boost the voice in you when you deliver speeches. It is the only way you will surely win.

The Infinitives


In learning English, it needs mastery of the subject matter. If you want to learn English well, you need to learn the basic things because that will serve as your tool to proceed to the next level of English lessons.

Learning the basic is like learning the proper thing to do in order to create an effective written composition.  Just like learning the Infinitives. This is just so simple to learn but you need to clearly follow the basic of this thing.

The formula is just the use the preposition “to” + the base form of the verb. Examples are: to serve, to read, to listen, to write, to sing, etc.

You should not forget to pair the preposition “to” with only the base form of the verb. Don’t pair “to” with past or past participle of the verb. That is not the right words to be.

Say:
1. We could not prevail upon her to come along.
2. Susan wants us to be on our own.
3. Learning to organize my household has been training for me.
4. Your ability to run your household is admirable.
5. A short nap gives me renewed strength to last the rest of the day.
6. I love to watch them.

*Remember it is a verbal that functions in the sentence as a noun equivalent, as an adjective and an adverb.

Examples:
I should like to borrow a book. (To borrow is an infinitive that functions as direct object to the verb “like”.)
I should like to borrow a book to take home. (To take home answers the question - What kind of book should you like to borrow? (a book to take home)
We want to have you here. (To have functions as direct object.)
We want to have you here to know you better. (To know functions as an adverb. It answers the question why.)
He worked hard to win. (To win answers the question functions as an adverb.)

Using Infinitives in Different Patterns
1. S + V + infinitive (used as noun equivalent)

We decide to go.
We decide not to go.
She doesn’t care to see you.
The committee endeavors to finish the project on time.
Don’t forget to call up.
Our parents hope to see us succeed.
I am fact learning to adjust myself.
We didn’t mean to leave you behind.
He is planning to continue his studies abroad.

2. S + V + noun/pronoun + infinitive
Our parents advised us to be careful.
The man caused me to be angry.
Our leader commanded us to go on.
Mother encouraged me to continue.
The thief forced the girl to give over her money.
The candidate got several persons to vote for him.
Our teacher instructed the boys to leave the playground.
Let us invite the girls to attend the party.
Tell them to wait.
The law obliges the people to respect duly constituted authority.

Part of the basic in English is to learn every detail of it. And to learn the Infinitives is part of it.

Division of Labor: The Need of Each Other

Who is responsible for each family function? The mother alone, both the mother and the father only, only the eldest son or daughter, consider grandma and grandpa or all of the family members?

These questions are oftentimes starring at all times. They are a fad to all demands especially when one person is just the sole member in the family or two who is the only concern of the works or chores at home, in the offices, in school or in the community.

For me, division of labor is the kind of equal distribution of responsibilities in helping each other to do the job and that not only one person performs a specific task but all should help for the accomplishment and success of a work or goal. It is a must for all but it is the most depleting words at this time, I guess. Its worth has been taken for granted, leaving the soloist to perform all the jobs for the rest of his life.

Now, here goes the bad interest. It is like leaving all the work undone. Many things that need to be fixed, but there you go, you are the certified soloist. Doing all the task at home, in the offices, or anywhere you may be that requires works, it is not proper for others to leave you behind, facing all those mess and keeping them in order. Of course, your body will retire. Your body is not a piece of a joke. You need persons, people and even the community to help each other makes things easier, fast and healthier.

For many, division of labor is void. What one thinks he will do is just the kind of task that he will perform. “Doesn’t care” is not rampant in this kind of system. There is a way of telling everyone that you can do it.

Helping each other needs cooperation. It needs many hands and feet to finish the multiple tasks everyday of our lives. Eventhough the reliance of the workers to do the task for us is available anytime, but still we need each other to share and hand-in-hand work things out. This is what we call division of labor. The distribution of assigned task is well-managed and monitored. There are what we call as communication and cooperation. Communication in a way that the people who do the work need to collaborate with each other for them to know what are their task and how they finish to accomplish the said tasks. Cooperation, they have the value of extending hands with each other, not minding which one should do this but the spirit of common sense and give and take should dominately spread the working atmosphere.

If all the people in accomplishing plans and tasks do the division of labor, then there is harmonious living and there will be no pointing out of who’s who to do the thing or who will be responsible for this or that.

The need of each other is important at all times.

The Past Form of Verbs


Learning English is fun. It is so easy to learn English. But first, you have to harness learning the basics in order for you to fully enjoy the fullness of learning the language.

You need to master the concepts of it because no matter how many generations will pass by, it is still the kind of rules, the kind of techniques and the procedures that you will follow. There is no alteration. The basics in English are constant. Just like the Past Form of Irregular Verbs, they are basic in English.

There are two forms of the past tense. We have the:

1. Regular Verbs. They are formed simply by adding –d or –ed to the simple verb.
Examples: received (You add –d to the simple verb, receive.), solved (You add –d to the simple verb, solve.), passed (You add –ed to the simple verb, pass.)

2. Irregular Verbs. They are formed simply by changing the spelling of the verb. That is why, it is called irregular because they are not regularly formed in a way that you have to change their spelling in order for you to attain the past forms of the verbs.

Examples: (In the first example, the past form of the verb am is was and so, was is called the irregular verb. The spelling has been changed based from its simple form.)
am – was                              lay – laid
bear – bore                           lead – led
become – became                 lose - lost
begin – began                       ride - rode
blow – blew                         ring - rang
break – broke                      rise - rose
bring – brought                    run – ran
catch – caught                      see - saw
choose – chose                    shake – shook
come – came                       show - showed
do – did                                shine - shone
draw – drew                       shrink – shrank
drink – drank                     sing – sang
drive – drove                     sit – sat
eat – ate                              speak – spoke
fall – fell                              spring – sprang
flee – fled                           steal – stole
fly – flew                             swim – swam
forget – forgot                     swing – swung
freeze – froze                       take – took
get – got                              teach – taught
give – gave                          tear - tore
go – went                            think - thought
grow – grew                        throw - threw
hide – hid                            wear - wore
know – knew                      weave – wove
write – wrote

*There are also few forms of irregular past tense that does not alter their spelling based on the simple form of the verb. These words are:
beat – beat
burst – burst

Always remember that the use of the past tense indicates an action that is happening in the past. Be sure to remember that past actions are those things that are happening yesterday, last month, last week, this morning, long time ago, a year ago and the like. That is why, when you are writing a sentence or when you write compositions that you are referring to the past times, then use the past tense, regular and irregular forms.

Example: Yesterday or just this past hour, you are doing the household chores that your mother tasked you to do. You will write in your sentence.

I washed the dishes yesterday. Or plainly write: I washed the dishes.
I cooked food for my sisters yesterday. Or I cooked food for my sisters.

Learning to write the use tense of verb signals what time you perform or what specific time you do the things or when did it happen. Never confuse yourself when you write actions in the past, always use the past tense of the verb.

Dear Diary


Writing is my life. And for years, I never kept my hands park. I write, write and even write more.

I find the efficacy of writing a diary an invigorating life as it helps me express what I feel everytime I learn, reflect and even if I would like someone to know is what is on my mind that I can’t be able to tell him. I write everything I want to say in my diary. My thoughts are widely open, without hesitation to really reveal all the things that I really wanted to say. I find my diary as my friend, my joy for life.

Because of having a diary, I am able to unlock the real me. In person, I am totally silent and observant on things. It is only in my diary that I can outburst my emotions. I can tell what I feel if I dislike someone or not, happy or sad, active or passive, excited or behaved. My diary is a sort of my release, an outlet of the real feelings that I have felt. It paves to let go all the hurts, pains, worries, angers, confusions away from the heavy me.
