Biography of Amanda Seltrecht
Well My name is Amanda and I am currently a Junior in High school. When I graduate I want to go to University for Music Journalism and Creative Writing. In my free time I enjoy snowboarding, Hip-Hop dancing and writing poems. My parents divorced when I was 2, I moved around a lot with my mom, when I was 6 she remarried and my step dad was an abusive alcholic, when I was 8 she got a divorce, and with that came a new boyfriend who was a meth addict and my mom got into it pretty bad. In 2001 my biological dad died and I got put into foster care, my mom put me up for adoption and now I am under guardian-ship. So far I have moved 13 times, but I think that everything happened for a reason. I am the Football Cheerleading Captain at my school, so from reading my poems and talking to me you proubably wouldn't guess off hand.
Amanda Seltrecht Poems
I have learned that the prettiest roses have the sharpest thorns Those who cannot move on from pain live their lives in mourn Why does love have to be so cruel Why can we just make our own rules
she hides under covers afraid of the dark shadows on the wall such a lasting mark she tries to be brave and sheds no tear Look inside you see nothing but fear
~ Until The Day I Die~
I said until the day I die I will spill my heart for you Until the day that I die I swear that it is true You said until the day I die you will spill your heart for me Until the day I die you will forever care for me
~sea Of Faces~
Ten million people each with their problems why should anyone care I am not just a girl vastly lost in this world Lost in the sea of faces
Your standing there with your pretty brown eyes, Are you being for real or are you in disguise. I met you not too long ago, These feelings I cannot help, but show.
The Real Me
This is real, this is me, this is who I want to be, I am sorry, but I have to choose my own destiny. I am taking two steps forward, and one step back, This time I am making sure that I stay on the right track.
I have learned that the prettiest roses have the sharpest thorns
Those who cannot move on from pain live their lives in mourn
Why does love have to be so cruel
Why can we just make our own rules
You lost your faith so I put faith in you
You said you loved me I said I love you too
But no I do not hate you and I know I never will
I cared about you then and I care about you still
Even though you hurt me I cannot seem to let you go
