The snow weighed heavy
on the branches of the trees, pulling
them down. The air was crisply
cold, the night cloud-free, clear.
Cold feet crunch along
icy sidewalks – heavy boots
weighing me down.

I was determined to get to the finish line. Just because I was in last place didn’t mean that I was quitting now. There it was…. the finish line.

i am determined to make the honors band next year. if i dont make it i willl quit band because that is how serious i am about it. i dont want to make symphonic or concert because that means i did not have any improvement or i got worse. if i make concert than that means i got worse. symphonic band is justTO BIG and concert is to small. and honors is good and the best band because all the 8th graders get to be in there. if a 7th grade oboe makes honors and i dont, i will get SUPERmad.

I’ll be damned and determined
To see you burn in haters hell
You’ve walked your lonely mile
On my last frayed nerve cell
It feels like I’ve looked into
The pits of rotting human waste
You better gather your consorts
This Judgement can’t be erased

Determined can be both active and passive. I am determined that mine be active. I am sure my characters are the same. They are each determined to get someplace to do something to make the world into the shape they want to see.
And yet, each of them has already been determined by the events of the their lives, by the people around them, by randomness, by chance.
This is the great conundrum – the gap between our own determination and what has already been determined for us, what has been determined in the world around us that we are unable to shift, regardless of our resolve.
My ghost, Marie, is determined to make the world anew. Over time, she shrinks her vision and is determined just to run the right way, to make the printing press work, to please Maclure. The world will not be made anew no matter how hard she tries.

she sat in the table next to mine, not like a metaphor or a poem, but someone real with her hair greased and tied up, her shirt still obviously the one she had worn to sleep. she’s the most gorgeous thing i’ve seen in a while.
she was alone, had one drink on the table. she’ll stay alone. i’ll keep kicking myself this year, and to the next, if i never tell her how pretty i think she is. i’ll say it.
i’ll wait until the end of this song, and this cigarette. the song ends first, so i light another. i didn’t bring a watch with me but i’m keeping time, in the breath of ashes and the uglysweet smell of smoke.
she asks to borrow my lighter. i make her smile, but i can’t be sure. we fall silent again. i think i might do it. i will. but i suppose i’ll have to think first, because ‘i really want to see how my outer-ring-of-the-sun red lipstick looks on your skin,’ isn’t an ideal ice breaker.
“are you waiting for someone?” i say instead. i hope someday she’ll look wistfully at the traffic, the way she is now, and wonder when i’ll arrive.

I am determined not to fail,
I will win
I will soar like a sail
I will not sin.

She way determined to make everyone happy, no matter what it took. Spending her days with crafts, poems, and “ready to listen” advice, she took into account her friends, her brother, her sister, even the family she had made with other people. But she forgot one key person to keep happy: her mother. Ever since she was little, they had been close. They are still close, but for some reason she cannot tell her mother everything that is going on in her life. For example: the boy she likes. She cannot bring herself to tell her mother that she feels more than friendship for him because she is scared. Scared of what will happen, scared of her mother telling her that she can never see him again.

he stumbled down the alley determined to get to the store before it closed. inside was a porcelain doll that he needed for the girl next door. Long, golden, real human hair. Blue iceberg eyes that somehow seemed warm… A bottle of whiskey and two hundred dollars later, a beautiful doll sat anonymously upon the doorstep of the girl he secretly doted on.

She was determined to kill him. He was annoying her, being horrible, and being an asshole. However, killing was against the law, and she didn’t want to go to jail much.
But then she realized that killing was alright if it were self-defense.

Sometimes a goal can blind you, sure you need an aim. But try to look around you, the nice stuff is on the way, which is what is going to make you happy, eventually.

I am determined, above all things, to find the kind of love that I know exists in the dainty forms of fresh spring flora and is best conveyed by those can appreciate it best. There will always be a soft pastel place for the person that can sign it with their beauty

She stared upwards at the sky, feeling as though everything was aligned against her. And it was in that moment that she realized how much it would take to accomplish her goal. Not just some of her time, and a little bit of effort. It would take lifetimes. Her life would be spent fighting for the equality of a race that wasn’t even hers.

I am determined to live a happy and positive life, determined to live in peace with others instead of going against them, some times my determination doesnt show through but I will still try, I will stay determined regardless.

No one is more determined than
the mother who loves her
and the child who loves her imagination
at running away
from those they are made to love.
No one is more shy than
the fool in his innocent knowledge
and the teacher in his
at announcing their worth
No one is more real than
the people who fate themselves
By Saudade URL on 12.13.2012
I am determined to be all that I can be. I am determined to lead a beautiful life, to be successfull, to have a happy family, to fall in love and stay in love. Determination isn’t just ambition, it’s more beautiful and more pure. it means differnent things to differenct people but to me it means fulfilling your potential, whatever that may be.

he puts a cigarette
between his lips.
“I thought you quit”, i say.
he makes a gun
with his index finger
and thumb, aims it at a passing plane.
“there are worse
ways to die.”
