Begin; Let them know what it's about
Listen as I tell you I suffer with a curse, never to leave a space or a blank verse, must fill every line with a tale to tell, so I'll tell you all about this spell.
It started some time ago now, I met someone and made a vow, never to sin, never betray, never to leave in any kind of way.
When people ask what love is, how can they understand, all I know is I feel unreal everytime you hold my hand, I'll tell them it's around us no matter what we do, for me love exists but only when I'm with you.
Each of us hope that we find our soulmate, we wonder through life gently guided by fate, but I urge that no one in this world is the same, the echo in my dreams resemble your name.
They say it's fate that guides

Slowly we unwound the bandage, that hid our lives of unhealable damage, because with me, you didn't have to pretend, I loved you more than I could ever love a friend.
&if I could write a book, about how you make me feel, the title would be something that no one could steal, "Angels can make all your dreams come true..", when you hold my hand, I understand the magic that you do.
An enchantment might explain it, I capture and embrace this, this magic is so blinding unlike I've ever known, I hold your hand and every fear is overthrown.
When you're here I feel like the best I'll ever be, I love that feeling you've always given me, it gives me faith, a reason to believe, that maybe one day we could be free.
I've written this for you if ever you said, that you had questions about the thoughts in my head, know I'll wait for you 'till the roses lose red, a door that begs to be opened, a book that yearns to be read.
I never told you how beautiful you really are, you shine brighter than the sun, brighter than any star, nothing compares to your first true love, but I'm feeling like words can't explain
…show more content…
I'll never be too far away, and I promise every word I've scribbled is true, there will always be a place, in my heart reserved for you, we've said it before, this world could leave us anyday, because our love is undying, it will never fade away.
Another night, my memories live on, imagine me without you, every page would be gone, what I'd give to hear you, say my name once more, I'd fight my way through hell, earth's center, the core.
A puppet being guided, I feel it in my veins, fate draws me to you, whenever you call my name, sometimes I wonder myself, why this took so long to write, but it shows my dedication, worth every sleepless night.
I know there are only good reasons, why I'm writing this book, but maybe I wish that one day, I'll be unhooked, free from this hold, you've always had on me, but I know that i'll still see you, everytime I fall asleep.
I used to be the strength that raised you up high, now I'm the one with my head in the skies, here I stand alone with you in my heart, in my head I keep looking back, right back to the

Patrick Henry Persuasive Speech

...Patrick Henry’s Speech It is no secret that Patrick Henry was one of the most persuasive men of his time.

Use Of Ethos In Julius Caesar

...In the play Julius Caesar, both Brutus and Antony write speeches after Caesars death at his funeral. After comparing both men's use of ethos, logos, and pathos, it is clear to the crowd that Brutus is the more persuasive speaker. Even though Brutus’ speech was more persuasive, Antony also uses ethos, logos, and pathos in his funeral speech as well. Both men's speeches are similar in ways. Both Brutus’ and Antony's speeches contain ethos. In the play, Brutus says, “Believe me for mine honor, and have respect to mine honor that you may believe.” (Act iii SC II). He also says, “Here comes his body, mourned by Mark Antony who, though he had no hand in his death shall receive the benefit.” (Act iii SC II). This shows that Brutus killed Caesar for the benefit of Rome and its people. In the play Antony uses ethos by stating, “It will inflame you, it will make you mad.” (Act iii SC II). Mark Antony also uses ethics in his speech by saying, “Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.” (Act iii SC II). Antony uses...

...BANGALIT, VANESSA F. 03-15-16 ENGLISH4 / HCO TTH/ 9:30-11:00 INFORMATIVE SPEECH The Truth About Caffeine How many of you here consider yourself caffeine addicts? How much coffee do you drink in a day? One cup? Two cups? More? How about caffeinated sodas? Caffeine is pervasive in our society these days and every few months we hear about how a study has shown that it is bad for us or good for us. What are we to believe? Today, I'd like to give you some of the facts about caffeine and its effects on your body. I may not cause you to change your coffee consumption, but at least you'll be better informed about what you are putting into your body. I'm going to talk about the beneficial effects of caffeine, the negative effects and discuss what are considered to be 'safe' levels of caffeine consumption. Let's start with the good news. Caffeine, which comes from the leaves, seeds and fruits of about 63 different plants, is well known as a stimulant. That's why people drink it, right? Caffeine does help you wake up and feel more alert and it has been shown to increase attention spans. This is a beneficial effect for people who are driving long distances and for people who are doing tedious work. Calling this a health benefit may be stretching it, though staying awake while you are driving a car definitely contributes to your well-being! Caffeine also contains antioxidants, which have been shown to have cancer prevention qualities. The......

"What Is an American" Speech Analysis

...“What is an American?” This speech, given by Harold Ickes in May of 1941, banded its audience together in a fight for World War II. The speech can be classified as many different things; some might say that it is persuasive, others motivational. Whatever title one might choose to brand it with, one thing is irrefutable; the speech itself does its duty by capturing the attention of its audience through language and technique. Ickes’ speech to the American people was very successful in rallying his points because of the way in which he chose to deliver it. Rather than deliver a formal speech, he addressed the American public very personally. This can be seen as he repeatedly used the terms “I”, “our”, “we”, and so forth. The “our” and “we” are especially important because he was talking to America as a whole. Through these terms he showed that his concerns were the same as those of the American public. Not only did he bring the people together as a united front through his inclusive terms such as “we” and “our”, he showed that he meant all of America, not just the working white man. “What constitutes an American? Not colour nor race nor religion…An American is one who loves justice and believes in the dignity of man…” Through this statement it can be felt that Ickes was speaking to every American out there. He was rallying to bring them together and it worked because he was sure not to leave any man out. Another way in which Ickes unified and connected with his......

It is a major topic in many political debates, and one cannot read a newspaper or watch the evening news without eventually coming across a story about it. With all of the commotion surrounding illegal immigration, it is no surprise that many American citizens are concerned about how much it will affect their lives. The exact impact of illegal immigration is impossible to measure due to the fact that the majority of illegal immigrants are undocumented. However, it is clear that it has both negative and positive impacts on the American workforce. Whether or not one past outweighs the other is a personal opinion, but the only way to make an informed decision is to know the facts from both sides of the argument.

Julius Caesar

...acted like this in the way they went about doing things e.g.- they would always take the side of the person in power, they were easily persuaded because of their naïve state of mind. Question 2 One thing Julius Caesar and Brutus have in common is their divided selves. Compare the two characters with special reference to their public and private selves. Both Caesar and Brutus have two distinguished personalities, (divided selves). In reference to Brutus’ public personality, he is confident and hold himself in high esteem. He refuses to show even a spec of weakness. He takes great pride in his speeches. As opposed to his private self, who is very timid and gentle. This was portrayed in the play when he tries to conceal tis side of him from his wife. In reference to Caesar’s public personality, he is fearless, arrogant and noble in public. Caesar was unable to separate his public self from his private self unlike Brutus. Caesar would discuss his private affairs publicly. Question 3 Compare and contrast the scene between Portia and Brutus and the scene between Caesar and Calpurnia Brutus and Portia share a more respectful relationship with an understanding that they are both equal in their positions in the relationship. This representation of their union shows a loving and standard example of how a marriage should be. In contrast, Caesar and Calpurnia’s relationship takes a more divided approach. Their union somewhat lacks the trust, love, respect and most crucially,......

Julius Caesar Anthony and Brutus Comparison

...Brutus. In the play Julius Caesar there are two main characters, Brutus and Mark Anthony. These characters have major differences between them. They are both opposites to each other. Brutus was an honest but naive man while Mark Antony was a persuasive, deceptive, and ambitious man. Antony used the art of deception to control people such as in his funeral speech for Julius. Antony used his words to turn the crowd against Brutus which made Brutus go up for his speech against an angry crowd yelling at him as the murderer. Antony speaks with passion like when he cried over Caesars dead body. He used his words and emotions to sway the other peoples thinkings so they would lean towards his side. With this method, Anthony gained more followers because the people of Rome followed listened to him as he spoke with passion. Antony is acting upon his revenge against the conspirators because they murdered his good friend who he was loyal to. Brutus is an honest but naive man who believed in the protection of the people of rome. Brutus’ action were the result of his love for the people, although drastic he only has his people in mind. Brutus’ intentions were pure but the actions he used were not. Throughout the play Brutus seemed naive about everything because he believed that every man was as honest as him. Brutus believed that Caesar was pure evil although he was clearly not, this proved Brutus’ naivety. Brutus and Anthony have many outstanding differences they also have......

Angelina Jolie: Humanitarian

...and North Caucasus. In addition to this, she along with Brad Pitt founded the Jolie-Pitt foundation which is dedicated to eradicating extreme rural poverty, protecting natural resources and conserving wildlife. This foundation also donates to many other humanitarian groups, one being Doctors without Borders. In 2009 Angelina Jolie gave the opening speech for a World Refugee Day event being held at the National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington D.C. Throughout this speech Jolie concentrates not on the horrible conditions that refugees endure but on the spirit that they have from being in these situations. When speaking to millions of Americans she doesn’t rely on facts or statistics but instead she uses anecdotal evidence, visualization and pathos to get her point across. The purpose of this speech is not to persuade but to inform the people of America about the amazing people she has met while traveling to third world countries. Furthermore, she is trying to show people that you should not look at these people as if they are less than you but appreciate them for what they have to offer you. Jolie starts off her speech by using anecdotal evidence to show Americans that refugees are not just people running away from bad situations but instead they are these amazing people...

She has been featured in movies such as Our Song, Bad Company, Ray, Fantastic Four, I Think I Love My Wife, For Colored Girls, and most recently in Quentin Tarantino’s hit western, Django Unchained. Kerry is also the star of her own television series, Scandal, where she plays a fixer who cleans up scandals and other problems for her clients (biography 1). Kerry’s background is an important factor in her message to her audience. Her background is her credibility, as well as her attention getter. Kerry is not only a famous actress that has a proven track record in Hollywood, but she is a graduate of the university she is speaking to, making her success seem more possible to the audience as well as putting weight and meaning to her message. Kerry’s commencement speech was given to arguably one of the hardest audiences to speak to, a group of some five thousand college students. Kerry is speaking to the large graduate class of George Washington University, as well as the graduates’ family and friends. However, not only is she speaking to some ten thousand people, she is speaking to current college students, as well as graduates from other schools. She is speaking to all of these groups because her message is focused not just to George Washington University graduates, but to anyone who is watching her speech...

Reclaiming the American Dream

...Øregård Gymnasium Engelsk 1.s ------------------------------------------------- William Rode Bager (RL) Reclaiming the American Dream In 2007, Barack Obama announced his desire to become President of the United States. He succeeded in 2008, and was elected as the American President. However, the path to become the president was not easy. In one of his speeches, namely the one he held in Iowa in November 2007, he deals with the American dream, and how he believes that The United States can reclaim ‘The American Dream’. In this historical period (2007), the necessity of a new leadership was necessary. The reason for this was the Great Unemployment during the Great Recession. In economics, this means a general reduction in economic activity. Consequently, Banks began to collapse and there was no insurance deposit, as bank failure was considered quite common. This started to worry the depositors that they might have a chance of losing all their investments. Therefore, they started to extract money and chanced it into currency. This forced banks to pay off assets - such as call in loans rather than create new loans. In banking and finance, it meant liquidate. All this, creates a recession, which reduces the employment and productivity. This drove the American population to the conviction, that the only way to avoid The Great Recession was new political leadership. My main focus of this paper concerns the devices in rhetoric that appeals to an audience. These......
