Carrot Top

You try your best but it's not quiet there.
You kick a foot and say "It's just not fair!"
A simple girl living simple dreams,
A rumour that's not quiet as it seems
You look to like to live
People are ready to rain your armies and shatter your walls
Time to beat the heat when you sweep the haters right off their feet
Like a phoenix get back up when they strike you down
You change their frowns turn the world upside down
Carrot Top, go beyond us
You're a late star time to fool us
Spread your wings and take it to the sky
Make sure you fly far and high
Brighter than tonight's sunset
Can't mistake your silhouette
Not a sound nor voice nearby
Your hair illuminates this gloomy sky
Thud
That's the sound of the haters' mouths dropping to the ground
Seeing you as a princess gets them out for the count
I'm not surprised because I never had doubt
You're mother nature
They hate you
Nailed you on the cross
It's a loss to be a beacon in the dark you see
Cover them in your glow
The world is now your garden give them love to grow
They look at you with mean glares because you don't want to fight
That's because they know they can't put out your light
Stand strong Carrot Top
Because soon they will stop

Similes And Metaphors

The creek of the door sounded as if someone was screaming. The room was dark, just as I expected it to. I stepped into the room and shut the door behind me. Even though I had my eyes open, the dark room made it seem like I had them closed. Looking for the light switch made it seem I was wondering aimlessly through a dark maze. I placed my hands on the walls and started to slide them across in search for the switch. My hands moved smoothly across the walls like a swan on a lake. A bump. My hands found the switch but when I felt the bump it was as if a car crashed into a tree. I flicked the switch and light sprang into the room, I used my hands to cover my eyes like a vampire.

I jumped into my bed and the bed sprang me up on impact like a trampoline.  I wrapped myself in my blanket as if I was a caterpillar in a cocoon.  I closed my eyes and slept like a sloth.
