The Victor Poet: C.W. Longenecker

The Victor
Poet: C.W. Longenecker
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win but think you can’t,
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.

I really like this poem because it reminds me that before anything I do, I have to have my mind free and have a clear head, not think about the what if’s, or the maybe and just go do it. “You’ve got to be sure of yourself before You can ever win the prize.”

I think the meaning of this poem is to remind us, that everyone is just the same as us. And that if we have enough heart we can do it. “But sooner or later, the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can.” The poetic devices used are ABCB throughout the poem.

Out of My Way Seether Out of my way
Out of my, way

[Pre-Chorus]
I can?t pass up this opportunity to make myself absurd,
I can?t pass up this opportunity to let myself be heard.
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me lose this all,
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me fall.

[Chorus]
Nobody?s gonna stand in my way
Give it up son, I?m doin? this my way
Nobody?s gonna stand in my way
Give it up son, I?m doin? this my way

You like to think the worst is over now, but you cant breathe at all You like to think you?re owed a favor now, man you?ve seen it all

Did you, want to, be the one who pushed me off the wall,
Did you, want to, be the one who let me fall.

[Chorus]

You can?t hold me down..
You can?t hold me down..
You can?t hold me down..
You can?t hold me down..

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

Nobody?s gonna stand in my way
Give it up, I?m doin? this my way
Nobody?s gonna stand in my way
Give it up, I?m doin? this my way
Out of my way

This song is poetry to me because it rhymes in every verse “Did you, want to, be the one who pushed me off the wall, Did you, want to, be the one who let me fall.” The poetic device used in the beginning is AABB then it goes to AAAA later in the song.

Snow
By Tyler Urban

Snow falling softly
Blanketing over the ground
Beautiful it looked

Life
By Tyler Urban

Life is amazing
Treat everyday like it’s your last
Never forget that

Swiftly
Tyler Urban

The snow falls swiftly
Swiftly through the air snow falls
Snow may never end

Life
Tyler Urban

Life is pitiful
The days never end with you
I’ve waited my life

Band camp

One time at band camp
I saw a beautiful girl
So I said hello

Rhyming poems
I
By Tyler Urban

I have gone places I should not gone. I have done things I should not done. I have been a bad model
For my toddle.
I have seen through hell,
But still I come back.

I’ve failed plenty things
but still I have my wings.
I’ve been down before
but still I will outscore.

Stupid Swimming By Tyler Urban

Swimming is dumb
it is not a lot of fun
I’d rather be on a long run

You can swim at night
but don’t get in a fight
you might need some light.

You swim by yourself
you can pride oneself
on just being by myself

When you want to quit
have another go at it. Just breath for a bit.

Sonnet
Love has passed.
By Tyler Urban

You fell into the rainbow of my heart
Mixing colors lightly tugged and stared
Never knowing where it might re-start
Leaving mistrust without a slight care
Never paying attention to their lead
Knowing now, I need to get my mind strait
True love is never close yet I feel freed
Realising that I know this much too late
Written into mystery was our fate
Soft words of molten wax did leave their trace
Seemingly I know it makes no debate
Seductive, reckoning sweet embrace
You drowned me when you knew no difference
The nails around my heart knew no defense.

Free Verse
Sadness
Tyler urban

One day alone on the road
I drive to the end of the world
Just to see myself by myself
The sadness deepens with every passing minute
Knowing that the lonliness never ends
The gas always flows but alone I still am
I drive for you
You do not notice me
I could be yours
But if I was it
Would you notice me?
Alone I am
Alone you are
Cry, cry, Teardrop through each minute were Not.

Motivation.
Tyler Urban

More time I think I
Open my eyes to the possibilities
To seeing the future
If only it was now
Violate the laws of nature
Always the same never different
To break the laws
If only it was that easy
Openly I think about the opportunity
Now I must perform to do my best

All of my poems had poetry in them even though some were sad and some were happy they all used poetry. In one of my free verse poems I used a form of acrostic which is when you spell a word down the front of each line then start a line for each letter. And in my sonnet I used ABABCDCDEFEFGG.
