There once was a mouse that lived with a cat,

When the cat came around, he hid under the mat.

He took the cat’s food,

Put the cat in a bad mood,

The cat became skinny and the mouse became fat




Dancing in the rain,

Rain drops pouring over you,

Holding nothing back.




Don’t give up on life,

The end comes when you call it.

I won’t make the call.

Instead of finding the end,

Give me a new beginning.







Enthusiastic, caring, loving, outgoing

Daughter of Dan and Melanie Obert, sister of Emma Obert

Who loved to help others, loved to make others smile, and loved to make the best out of everything

Who hated sympathy, loved a challenge, and loved to make other people happy

Who feared riding in a car, feared wasting any time, and feared hurting anybody around her

Who discovered the true meaning of life, learned to make the best out of everything, and realized to never take anything for granted

Who wanted to see everybody she loved succeed, and wanted to experience true happiness

Who was born and raised in Illinois

  1. these were good, the tanka was slightly confusing though.. “the end comes when you call it” didn’t make sense to me, it gave me the impression of like suicide since its saying the end comes when i say want it to come. but maybe thats just me.

  2. I really liked your haiku and your tanka. Your haiku reminded me of being free and you could be able to do anything you wanted to.I thought your bio poem was well written. good job.
