Dear Teenage Life,
He smiled and laughed from time to time. He seemed fine but pain ate him up inside. He was so quiet but his blue eyes were loud, pleading. But no one ever listened.   He was someone’s student.
What is the opposite of living? It's hating others and not forgiving. Our eyes were placed in front for a reason. Look back should be called treason. It's staying alone. No memories to be made.

You can go on and all about the games, the football. But when will you teach us? Give the students the things they need for success. You have a required graduation class, yet you harass,

Alone. 5 words. 2 syllables. A major problem within itself. Not only are we the cause but we are the reason. Yet as time passes something begins to happen.

You say you love me yet I don't see it on your face, seeing and believing are two very different things,  if you love me I promise it will not be a mistake, through snowy winters and summer rains, 
Fog, inescapable fog, bitter cold and moist, it doesn’t belong. Not my southwest home, not my country. So, I reason, this place is someone else’s. Cold, gray, damp—it can only be Britain.

I am here, In this classroom, Desk wedged hard into my back, Eyes straining, struggling, striving to stay open, Teacher’s monotone lecture filling the air, But missing my ears.   I am here,
The seas are calm. My soul is free The birds are singing let them sing. In sweet harmony and song my soul is free. The sun is shining. Let it shine upon me.
Just because I sit in the back of the room And send an empty stare… I’m not an air! I care! I swear… You look at me but you can’t see The face that passes by… Oh, I want to cry! Why?
Love and pain. Loss and gain. New paths to take. Old friends again. Mother and father to hold your hand. An ex-best friend to take your man. A heart to break and a heart to have.

        My hatred had deprived from the feeling that; I would never be able to feel what future they will have. That my father could start over and become a better dad. While I had been the test subject, and the 'mess up'...

Today was the day,  Where you decide you didn't want to stay,  you have fought so hard, Today you finallyput down your guard.    Too bad it was too late, Way, way too late, 
Life and its meaning, surely its a clue. It's a question about believing, if a real purpose is true. We may be lost and afraid, but one day it will show the answer of this charade

  Dear Mrs.Power Hungry, I wake up early. The memories of sleepless nights fill my fluttering eyes. Late nights filled with words of the past, steps to write the perfect sentence, and what our earth is made up of. 
Imagine your dreams Reflecting your emptiness, Spinning wildly out of control, You can't slow down, you can't stop, You wake up sick to your stomach. Imagine being stuck in a rut everyday,

You stand at the board and you sit at your desk  You only care about deadlines and scores on my test  You mark up my papers, you stay after class You couldn't care less if I actually pass 
Just another dayMy arm is still scarredNo words left to sayNo words could even explainThe depth in this feelingThis craving deep inside Normally I can hold it backBut it's getting even harder to hide.

  Teacher Dearest, I'm tired of hearing your voice and your lectures, They're usually followed by meaningless words and pointless hand gestures. Last I checked, we were hear to learn, 
Would this lesson add food to the table when money is low ? Would this lesson show me a route to my future, and the right way to go ? Do you even care about what the hell we have going on ?

I was born in an ever changing world, but to me seems like a never changing world.  All I had was positive thoughts in my mind,  didn't know that would change in due time.  Lue find, the meaning of life.

Yeah…It’s that hurt. When you look around, and you realize Damn it, you’re alone. You live where your heart is But you don’t have a home. So you just stay there where your house is,
“I didn’t want to come back and teach your class in the first place,” you say. “Then why come back at all,” we say. “I don’t know what I’m going to do with y’all now,” you say. “So then why are you still here,” we say.
What’s on your mind? Is it a person? Someone you wish you knew?  A mime, trying to find the right words to express its inner being. What’s on your mind? The beauty of the sea? Wonder how deep it can be? The moon? Glistening in the sky?
Dreams are an escape from reality, A reality that we wish not to see, For with open eyes things become very clear, We see the world for what it truly is, So take a step back and breath in the atmosphere,

Education is made out to be oh so important I'm not here to say that it's not. but when you think of the true meaning of education, You really should give it some thought.
  I sit and watch. Watch you talk. Watch you teach. Talk, talk, talk. Trying to stay awake. Taping, Drawing, Texting. Not interested. In what you are talking about. In what you are explaining. Why. Why can I not move? Why can I not talk?

From your talk to your walk I can't stand your presence Everyday I enter that doorway and become trapped in this prison.. your chalk is writing what happen to markers and hope?
Education is the thing, That causes our minds to ring. Our brains twirl round and round, all while wearing a great ol' frown. But in the end all is well,  For those who get an education, That is.
Maybe it’s my choice Because you never seem to care. And it’s my voice, That you never seem to hear.   They’re my decisions,

Steps into the school, more like rocks moving. Why am I here? Teachers saying your stupid. Why can't I be smart? Words flying from every part of the room, Why do they hate me so much?

Can you hear me?  I'm here wanting someone to ask if I'm okay. I wait and wait but no one can hear me. No one notices the hurt I go through. No one notices the pain and suffering.
In class we are asked, To find the sum or the mass, Of topics that I'll never need. What about doing taxes, Or working the faxes, Because this I never see.

It's the beauty all around, that calls sweetly to deaf ears. Persisting that it's presence be found, but not many hear. A voice melodic, story hypnotic, with love and sadness intermingled. Eternal love and freedom began with strife.

Sitting, day after day In a cold boring room, The light bulbs flicker away And the air reeks of gloom.   The walls hold me tight, They keep me in line, Remind me night after night,
It all started one spring Seen a light And my mom on a bed For the first time With tears in her eyes Holding me tight   But two moths ago Something terrible had happened
Fizz. There goes the bubbles of your cola. Splash one, splash two, three hundred droplets down Pathetic, do you hear the depressing background viola? Like a fool, you watch the cup tumble to the ground.  
Thumbs up, no fear, smile and no tears Love expressed, My mother’s hands and her embrace Stability is near.
He was invited into Darkness one cold, black night. The Darkness took over his hearing, his touch, his sight. As much as he wanted to leave, the Darkness made him stay. And because of the Darkness, he pushed everyone away.
Let this be your first night of happiness. Let all your fear and troubles dissolve away into the darkness Let this night, be a peaceful moment full of bliss and relaxation
      It hurts to see my dad in such great pain, lying in his hospitalbed, pale and in pain. Five tubes---or more---pulling and push-ing his skin, dripping and sucking fluids into and from his body,
It's the last year of imprisonment The last of my safety One says it's a step to a new life Perhaps, the closing of youth... Is it death? Never have I ever Felt the uttermost dread
Grimy leather seats, Shoes wet from the dew, My shoulder bumps the cold metal of the bus During each twist and turn in the road. I am sitting here physically But I am not here, not at all.
Time, why did you abandon me? You purposely and mistakenly left my side Days come to short, but to many for counting In myself is where I’ve learned to reside   Time, you’re supposed to heal my wounds
School is for learning, right? Education is meant to be an enlightening experience, fill the pores of humanity with a vast expanse  of colors, the colors of Knowledge So I sit in a desk for 8 hours, 5 days a week
Birds harmonize in nearby trees; A helicopter flies overhead, beating the air with its wings; A motor works to keep the humans inside cool, While humans driving cars burn deadly fuel;
You like me, I like you. We got together, And I'm happy 'cause it's true.   You see me, And I see you. Both of us smile 'Cause it's what we always do.   When I kiss you,
  Je suis une rêveuse. An idealist,a visionary,a wishful thinker. A fantasist,a romantic,a stargazer.
I don’t like poetry. I know, it sounds like blasphemy to an English teacher’s ears but I just don’t like it. I know, I sound like a six year old
I think I never learned to speak Or, at least, not to stand up for myself I didn't speak up I couldn't speak up Pushed around from an early age A shopping cart Bumped, bruised, Broken. 
The light's too bright my eyes are blind, the heat's too much my skin's too numb.   I miss the dark, I need its comfort; I miss the cold I seek its touch.  
High up the mountains, locked behind the gates It is self-sufficient, almost self-sufficient The sick seek solace, But where is the hospital?  
My parents call me into the living room, My siblings stand with me, My father has been on the phone For half an hour.   I had a surgery last week, We were hoping I had no cancer, We were hoping
It shouldn't matter what color, clothes, or how we look.
  “Did you hear? Nothing else matters right now. I don’t care who is looking.”   He nods his head and I can’t help but fall apart. I don’t even try to talk, because a my throat swells in sorrow

Everyday, I wake up but nothing ever happens. I've been pushed here, there, and everywhere. I feel alone, so alone I just want to end my own life.

I try to run away But your gravity pulls me to stay No matter how far I run Your gravitational pull has won I find so many reasons to leave you But for gravity tells me  That I'm not going anywhere
You love me with all your heart You cared about me from the start But I won't let myself love you You never let me forget that I'm beautiful Even when I look ugly to you I'm beautiful
. . . As of now I'm sitting here in my bedroom thinking Of the truth behind the lies and the games  It's such a shame that I'm hurting deep within of the bones that hold my frame What is there to do now but to wait . . . .
The middle This is where we are We shifted to neutral in the car Things are getting confusing And I feel like I'm losing We're both in the same section We're scared of rejection
You continuously Throw in my face my age But no one is begging  You to stay  You can leave and turn the page We fight all the time You alwas make me feel like slime
She cares, even if she shouldn't. She loved, even when she promised she wouldn't. She let him go, even when her heart couldn't.   He promised her his heart for ever. Would he walk away, he swore....never.
Star-kissed I open my eyes And see A million beautiful lights. Little cosmic seeds, Planted in the universe. Some die In spectacular bursts. Some with but a whisper.
I'm lost in my fantaies  Without realizing The fatal tragedy That is my reality Lost in the fun Lost in the bliss When a good life Is what I really miss I do and say things I shouldn't
   Vibrant green is seen so supreme. It's power that it's won. What is it's worth to you or me in reality, it is none. We would rather see it traded in for fancy clothes or cars. As it lie there cold, what is its use no longer gold in bars?
The life of a senior, Is to be a great leader, To be a role model for the younger kids, But become an underclass man all over again, But as of now for eight hours, Ill have the power, 
Through this tiny journey, A game as some may call it,  We fall over cracks, Trip over mistakes, Fail while achieving, And make faults within perfection, But it is just the nature of mankind.
For you I began, without me you don't exist. You named me and try to understand me, so I tell you what I can. But..... I don't remember when I started, I walk in an endless line,
Walking in nature makes me think of thee. I'm reminded of you in all that I hear and see. As I walk, I see the trees rustling with the light wind, Just as your long hair sways when you walk 'round the bend.  
  innocence in watching grass grow; the cliche is there but so is the truth
File for this. Apply for that. Where is the fun at? Deadlines buzzing whirring around Overwhelming the toughest of nerves. Quivering Wondering Focusing Shivering
She the tears burn as they fall from Her innocent cheek they cut through Her innocent heart they run down Her innocent body   She soaks  in a pool of despair
i shivered, cowering you focused, tactlessly i followed, aimlessly a blindness, unconscious of empty sentiments i wouldn’t understand

Everyone hurries with smiles and laughs;but the girl just passes so solemn.One day after the other the kids seem happier;but the girl just remains the same.Parties, friends, make up and more;
I never knew where I wanted to go, Or what I wanted to do. I've been through five semsters, from school to school. Undecided, feeling defeated Taking classes that were totally uneeded. But now....
She says sit like a lady but has rules against chairs. Here's six hours of reading, I'm sure you have time to spare.   Here's a screwdriver and wood now give me boat. There is a list of to-do's,
I like to eat sleep and be alone empty messages, no missed calls on my phone Walk through the streets contemplating on life no one to go on dates or make me their wife Old friends and family call to hang out
Rain washes me away Melting away my indiscretions Exposing my vulnerabilities And carrying me to places unknown Thunder drowns out the cry of my heart Silencing its call Stifling its every desire
Dear You,
Dear You, 
A glimpse of another life can ruin youDreaming can create the most excruciating heartbreak  I had always been told not to put all of my eggs in one basketNot to count the chickens before they hatched
I look to the world, And feel burdened By life that clings, difficult to shake off.   I look to my city, And feel enslaved By copious opportunities, experiences.   I look to my community,
i made a mistake i made a mistake i made a mistake i made a mistake no...it was my fault the words you howl in pure disgust the words i take in and attempt to digest
You sit behind me in the midnight sun Urging me forward toward the edge  Always there my dark twin You are the sin to my light It takes everthing to fight the pull Oh how sweet it would be 
You feel guilty, haunted and it's eating you away. You think that you can hide it, avoid it but this guilt is here to stay.   The first step into freedom  is coming out with the truth. 
Baby, You don’t want me close to you. Cause my heart is dead And it will kill yours too.
Click A sound is heard Tick Another chimes Knock A common noise Tock A secret song Creak Alone just chaos Squeak Together form music Ching Annoyance to some DingHarmony to otherBong  Ignored by speed Dong Embraced by patience 
There will come fiery showers and death from above, And lonely life searching the sky for a dove.   And fresh air will become scarce around these parts, And sullen moans rise deep from black hearts.  
Its crazy to go from a gangster to a christian A loud mouth to a listener A gun toter to a bible holder A brother fighter to a man molder To go from ripping and running the streets To hymnals moving my feet
High School   You get four years to figure out your life, You’re the one that puts up with all the toil and strife,
You tell me that I cant succeed You say my dreams are not logical You repeat the things you think I should do.. But I tell you that you'll see my success I say to you my dreams are reality and will be met
You're not really sick! You just want attention! You just want to be treated differently! That's what they cry Their words becoming sticks and stones That break my soul, mind, and bones
tengo una sonrisa bella una sonrisa todos los días y a todas horas   pero es una sonrisa falsa todos piensan que estoy bien nadie se imagina que la depre se pelea
I told him, baby, let's go back to our childhood Go back to those years of playing games. Let’s go back to those better times when, this hell, our life could never erupt in flames.
It starts off as a joke Then turns into madness. Wishing you could revoke. But its too late. All the teasing, pushing and laughing Has took its toll. Now all the things you say have lost control. You couldn’t help it, You mom and dad had split  An
Black engulfs the world around me. Everything is still; No wind, No light, Just me and the darkness that surrounds me. How did I get here? Did I jump, Did I fall,
You are the little girl who wants to be A doctor one day To put on a white gown and a pair of squeaky clean shoes To save lives from behind a mask and a ponytail But forget it.
How she tells me she is honest,I can only nod, uneasy inside.She let me say what was on my mind,And, listening back, I became fonder.My once hardened wall broke down,Leaving only the opportunity for freedom.
Along the dirt path Her feet dragged in sorrow, Her white dress covered in self-loathing, Her eyes filled with regretful tears and Her lips blistered with slander.
Nothing is prettier than the 7 o'clock sunset hitting your faceBecause it illuminates exactly like your heart doesWhen you're telling me I remind you of the sea and your fingers trace 
The world turns dark, the lights go out And in my mind there is not a single doubt They  can’t see what I am going through They can’t see how much I need You The match in my heart is slowing burning out
  I will forgive everyone But myself By denying myself this I have never truly forgiven  
I never really wrote that good of a love poem until my love wrote the poem itself,It wraps inside my heart, flows from my pencil or pen and doesn't ask for help. I guess I never really loved that deep for my love to feel the need to write its own
Distance is like a spark, indiferent of the fuel only offering ignition. Fueled by emotion, there is a reason most stop at the notion to ignite this flame.
  I know all you have is me And that I will never be enough But I will bind our love together With such a force  I will shoot fireworks from the tip of my tongue every time I speak of you
Stab, stab. Cut, cut. I'll bleed onto you. Every known color will fade into you someday. Permanently marking your body, mutilating you beyond recognition. If I push too deep I might tear through your flimsy skin.
You take my hand in yours, You look at me with adoring eyes that I cannot ignore, You burn through my icy façade, And you stand by my side.   You wrap your arms around me, Your scent, your warmth,
This girl who is she?  What is her means ? She has been throrugh alot Alot of things you have never seen. They say she's jamaican but is that all to her ? She seems that she has something else to offer.
ALL THE THINGS I’D WISH YOU’D SAY   Dear My Daughter, I refuse to stain your heart with my scars. Dear My Daughter,
This axe of our views hides quietly away its blade rarely sees the light of day These days no one can get the axe   The teachers abuse and swear Some children find this case unfair.
O' bumbling, buzzing bee; whizzing past my ear.You always seem so determined:Please, tell me where you were...
You are simply beyond my reachA treasure I can no longer keep For holding on to something at such a distance Meets with such strong resistance
  From the safety of my window I look out and view the world. A harsh, cruel world is what I see, Looking back with scorn at me.  
 A   Broken record  Can  Deliver messages to other galaxies and  Etch in stone the   Fake desire that was  Gone before the  Heat could rise.  It’s the summer time.  I don't think we believe in space;  Just the time it takes to destroy it.
  Love. The laughter of a small child, The rain that makes the plants grow strong and healthy, The raw emotion between a man and woman, Man or man, Or woman and woman. Love.

 Maybe She Would Be Alive Today. If I Spoke Up And Said What I Needed To Say. If I Thought Differently and Choose A Different Path. Crazy Thing Is I Didn’t Think She Would Last.
Do you understand? Do you understand what it's like? Do you understand how it feels? Do you understand what it's like and how it feels not to learn? How it feels not to be successful?
Do you remember when we first met?  It’s okay.  I don’t either.
Macroeconomics (to me) is the first stall in a public restroom. It's the better-than-you step-sister. It's the stench of the fish aisle at the super market. It's wanting to wear a skirt but not wanting to shave.
His green eyes look at me I am so in love How this boy own my heart He makes me swoon when he says my name   I am his army I am his voice He is my pride He is my love  
  I stand in plane sight, visible to all, yet never seen. Stationary, unmoving, unchanging, I watch the world morph It turns into something unrecognizable I'm a stranger in my own home. I belong, nowhere.
If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, how many apples does it take to cure my mothers cancer? How many apples does it take to cure my aunt's? How many for my godmother?

Our first evening in London he Keeps his arm around my waist and I Laugh at everything   He kisses me in the door of the flat And doesn’t kiss me again until we wake up
What you don't know My learning is outside the classroom My learning is what not to say How not to act What not to do  
    I will draw x's on your spine and smear them off with the salt of my tears. I will listen to the pulses of your heart thrusting against your heaving chest and tally them on the creases
When you are scared, feeling small When darkness falls, sinking you deeper into the ocean You feel weary and frightened You feel the waves take you down You look for a coastguard Something for protection
Dream of me in the depths of your despair, and a beacon of what once was will appear. Dream of me at your happiest moments, and wish that I could be happy too. Dream of me when you are angry,
I wish  I wish Work hard, play hard I will I will become what I wish to be
While you open your mouth I pick up a pen  Because words only confine what I'm trying to help you understand  I'm talking about free verse freedom  The rhythm without rhyme that's made when you let words flow and just play  The kind of freedom tha
How much easier it would be if I were not lonesome,so rooted in my happy lonesome,cornered with no feelings that someone's happiness might be dependenton me.Alone in my encounters.

Condolences By: Renisha Williams Sitting outside of this funeral home  I’m cold and nervous. I wipe the sweat from the palm of my hand and compose my thoughts.
When you look me in the eyes, the rest of the world disappears.  When you look in my the eyes, I am almost brought to tears.  The way you look at me; like I hung the stars in the sky, 
Rest your lips on my pillow Embrace me a little tighter,  Dawn is approaching but there's still time to pull me closer. Place your hand in mine, Like a sweet caress your lips meet mine.
The wind whispers gently as it calms my mindCaresses my cheeks while passing timeOh, how I long to lay outdoorsOr laugh around a fire while making s’moresBeing a part of nature makes me feel pure
said today to tomorrow: "hi, we are the same. you have lost a few leaves but seasons are meant to change. and there is water in me, water in you - three-fourths of your clouds are afraid
    I saw a man sitting on a ledge. His head was low and over the edge. He held a sign with seven bold words. Not the kind often said. All was read and left a constant ringing in my head.
Ruby red trips called her lips contort in pain and sadness she sees the light leaving his eyes, the fight no longer in his favor  As memories of their past clouds her mind clarity is miles away on vacation
Walking around like an arrogant queen You talk like an old and boring machine A student once asked a plain question You scoffed and dismayed it without discretion "Look it up" is what you have always said
I am the girl who tears scraps of poems and tapes them to her bedroom walls So she can read them before she sleeps One night she dreams about a flying man Tearing open the world’s rusted skin
    Remember...   The time I mistook indigestion for a baby, and the eyelashes on my cheeks for the end of the world.   When I thought as I traded knitted caps for rain hats,
Lost. Hopeless. Tear filled eyes Gaze                 Upon the scene. The horror.   What mad game has the artist played? Conjuring up dark roots, Faded memories,
  Blood runs fast You need to move fast before you’re nothing more than the past The future runs through your veins Dictations, like a school teacher, the crimson run determines the existence of future gains

Everyday, it is all the same, The places I go and the things I do. Everyday, it is all a game, To see if I can feel a deeper shade of blue There is a rut before me, And there is a rut behind,
I Love you with my Heart
I've heard the silence of a chilly September night, The silence of the wind, The silence of the cars whizzing by...   I've seen the emotionless look in your eyes that night, And the silence of your words,
I see you there floating in a sea of enlightment, you choose to smile while I choose to frown. Your beauty and your grace are unmatched, the way in which you speak is beautiful
Why dwell on the fallen sand When saved grains should be cherished? I meddle into those blurred memories To bring them light; they are irritated eyes Brittle and worn from tainting treachery.
She died today. Stuck between the pages in a notebook. She was left forgotten, An idea lost in the winds. She will try to be remembered, Tugging at the corners of the mind.
As we lie awake tonight Take some time to wonder why Everything we know is gone Everything we knew was wrong And as it goes across your eyes The light begins to die And as we lie awake tonight
I miss her, Where has she gone you say? I don't know, I'm just a hollow shell of her now, the smiles fake; the laughter off; where has she gone? To the land of heartbreak.
Same smell of green Cool breath in the air Frost on the benches Same swarthy blues It will be here   When we were walking by the cemetery You asked if I would still be there for you
It’s all up to me. It has always been up to me, to become anything, But I want to flee like a banshee to the Dead Sea To step away from my life and not have answer the question: “What do you want to be?”
Do you think this is the end or just the beginning For life itself, to the very end Shadows creep up behind you And say this is the end If this is the end then what's the beginning

All high school Ever gave me  Were chewed down finger nails, Lifeless eyes,  And anxiety.  And yet, We were once children, Who walked through those big doors, Down these big halls,
This is MINE. This is all I have left of before. I could never be four I had learned much too much of myself and my body That with this I possess too much power than my head was prepared for  
  Will it kill me? I wonder, gazing up at my mountain, whose jagged, torn dreams spill down a gray fountain.   Bold stands this mountain, gorged from the view while I, toward the sky,

She walks in with a sparkle in her eyes Even if she doesnt smile you can see it That sparkle hides how she really feels She herself sparkles Except no one see's her sparkle No one see's her

A line, a queue, is distance ‘tween two points. While the future end of ours did not change, It grew back where we stepped in, human joints. Two hundred souls we saw within our range.  
Life, Like the desert, Is bleak and harsh, Showing no mercy for those Who walk through it.   And yet if a man Can find it in himself, To look more closely at the desert

That moon sings of sleepy solitude       Casts an eclipse on the heart of the rude  The heart left unshadowed is the heart misconstrued  Though it is faithful, for only just one  It wanders the depths of humanity for "fun"  It knows its place, but
My feelings for you, they are nothing but true. Amazing, Handsome, & Caring, dont even begin to decribe you. My heart you have. Forever & Always You never make me feel blue.

Is Death a friend or foe? For now I shall not know. I feel that we are destined to meet. As I lie within these plain white sheets.
You could see the brokenness of her heart in her lovely green eyes. Hear her cry of help through her soft sweet smile. You could feel the emptiness, the cold lingering sadness of her soul,
                              We sit, we stand,we dream                        to have an openness to what things could be                      living in the abstraction of which we seek
When the sun awakens in the morning and I awake from my dreams back to reality I feel how strongly my heart misses you, its killing me I try to push it away and focus on something else with all my might
I’ve had a target on my back since I was five.I got to the point where I didn’t want to be alive.Like other children, I just wanted to be an actress.That turned into hiding razors under my mattress.
Tick, tockTick, tockTick, tick, tick The sound of the hands of time as it moves slowly by, but if time moves slowly by, why is there not enough time? We are told to stop and smell the roses,

The pen is mightier than the sword, They say; But put it up against a gun And it wouldn’t last a day.
  His muscular shoulders were hunched over, head bowed, and hands tightly clasped together.
You are a sturdy candle. Melted wax in a glass jar. I am a smaller, more dangerous tea light, not prone to shatter, but capable of faster fire. Some days your light does not shine on me; the wick refuses to twist and melt hot wax in my direction.
Changes. Some good, some bad. From green leaves to brightly airbrushed orange, a crooked smile to a smile worth smiling for, from being a child to becoming an adult. These are good changes. But with everything good comes a bad.
    With soggy eyes and lonely fears, Seasoned hands and anxious ears, It was a bittersweet night,
 Lets run far away Where no one can find usFind a little place to stay  Build a life on love and trust.
God's watching me.  I heard his voice for the first time, today. He took the form of this homeless man at a corner stop light in Columbia .  He held a sign  Said "No money, just prayer"  I knew I had seen him before. He had been there before. Wear

A string branches from the windows to your soul; connecting Us as we stare with the violent intentions of conquering The world together.  The string tightens and we unconsciously lean
Two minutes and fifty five seconds for microwave popcorn. Eleven and a half minutes for a phone call with your mother. Ninety minutes for a complete sleep rotation.   Eight hours
Courage is something that comes from the heart. It brings us hope and dreams, but others want to take it away. They want us to feel regret and sorrow, but we must stay strong. Courage is something that drives us to dream.
The dams have been broken and the water wears me down. Swirling and spiraling, lost in the sound, I grab and grasp for a fortunate foothold. For the one I found, I am forever grateful.  
What if you, nobody new,  were found to be unwanted. Not just by those who seem to rule society. But by those who were intended to love you? What would you,

Everyday I am told that I am lovedBut, do we only say that because that's what we've learned, it's our nature, right?I am told that I am loved but, it doesnt always feel that way
With each waking breathe, my soul quivers for fear. I cant stop these feelings inside me.   He tells me to breathe only breathe, its all we ever have left but why?

She doesn’t want to remember All that’s happened During those awful months   Her brain tries to repress But it’s hard Their awful words Her atrocious pedagogy Stays with her  
I lived to walk among the scenes Of people walking by. I lived to hear the mother's scream And hear the baby's cry. I lived to lend my helping hand Until one day I saw The thing I could not understand
This story begins with a girl. The one next door, the one we all know, The one who we are, A Marilyn Monroe.  She turned the pages of the magazine Loaded  with images of thin models and airbrushed faces
I am stuck in a cupboard, dusty and small. With no one who loves me down the hall. Never knowing anything about where I am from. Until that day when a giant had come.    I made new friends and went to school. And found out strangly, that I was coo
Fight Another Hour By Jesse Yelvington   Screw you for saying who and what I’m ‘supposed’ to be, Though I hope you know that nothing you could say will ever change me;  
1 a.m. isn't for those "just married" couples sleeping  together for the first time, 1 a.m. isn't for those who party everyday of the week nor for those who  stay up late playing video games.  
  Ain’t you ever thought about the places we could go? I thought about it. Think about it. It’s almost always on my mind. Slow down you say woah woah rewind
If you haven't noticed, I need a scholarship, And it just so happens, you tend to give them out, I'm just here typin,  like every other kid, what makes me special, is I'm takin time,
Don't misplace your unshelved lovewithin my heart.
To dream is to know to believe to hope.   To dream is to imagine to wonder of lands beyond your own.   To dream is to love with unfailing bound.
They'll look you in the eyes, "I'm different, please believe me",then they'll break you down,like mississippi in a spelling bee. You give someone your all,& tell them demonstrate what you can do.
Wish it were I was a child of 10, for when they fall, they get up again. They're resilient, brave, naive when first kissed, truly the portrait of "ignorance is bliss." But years travel on, experiences pass by,
Who am I? I'm that girl sitting right in front of you.  Look me in the eye.  Do you know who I am? I don't think you have a clue.  I want you to remember something.  YOU were in my shoes once. 
Is it loving your best friend, or loving someone who becomes your best friend? Is it being with someone who makes you comfortable or with someone who entices you to challenge life and take risks?
Strong, independent, my wise words of thoughts The source of all my pride and joy The source of my pain The wrinkles that settle beneath the eyelids of a woman hard at work
This, is not ordinary. Nor, is that. And we are seemingly careless, as to why. What. Because, there is nothing ordinary, about this and that. Nor is there anything ordinary,  about me,
The sky turns dark A deep black falls upon us. The angels cry as the Earth pushes further away from the Golden Gates. Twenty centuries of deep sleep. The great hands try to shake
Force fed faith, She refused to swallow. Knowing not to bite The hand that feeds her, But she still snaps. Her only way out.
I sing so you don't know im crying. I luagh so you can't tell im hurting. Close my eyes so you don't know im watching. Walk to keep from running. Hide in plain site so you can't see me.
Tick-by-tock I watch the clock,  staring as the time slowly grows thick. Tick-tock says the clock, waiting so I can give this school a kick. Tick....Tock.... goes the clock, slower and slower as I grow sick.
Who or What have made these creations? Isn't the word of God final to all? Doubt and persecution have lead to the fall of nations. Is our mind really that small?  
You say that you love me but do you really mean it ? You can say it a billion times , you can yell it and scream it No matter how loud you may say those words Love isnt forever , but it forever hurts
Butterflies In the night Drift away without a fight Lose myself Lost in you Wondering why, But such a pretty view No more sadness No more pain Watch that blood,
  We look up and see nothing but sky Blue, Bright, Clear The galaxy beyond is a dream within a dream A world eclipsed in light  As we climb towards the edge of the overwhelming darkness
 Burning slowly Like I'm set on fire This can't be good It doesn't always feel this way The slice of rose thorns severing My veins Tearing me apart from outside to inside A brewing poison
Long fingernails Salive in my hair Hand on my waist Roaming my chest In my pants "You have a sexy body." He whispers. I slip into disgust, feel an urgency to stop. But I didn't.
My dad was full of spirit, My dad was full of dreams, My dad was full of love, My dad was full of smoke. My dad was full of alcohol. My dad was full of strength. My dad was full of so many things
And the memories are like frozen icicles dropping on my limbs Making me bleed despair And I can't seem to put myself back together The mask is shattered I want to leave peacefully I left my brain and heart,
And you start to see it in everyone: The town whore The girl who peed her pants in 3rd grade The hot 20 year old life guard, his little brother with greasy hair and a pizza face. A raped female cat
I took my talents where the rest couldn't go supercilious from all this gold The way i love this life
Wary of whether or not I should Care or just walk off I've tried so hard to vindicate and orchestrate this love
I am from glossy pages still unread, from Miracle and hydrofluorcarbon. I am from the ochre and unkempt backyard. I am from the Peace Lilly, the forest of Pines, whose branches reach high above.
Teachers are Such ass who always get on my nervous. I try to stay calm before i give them what they deserve. They try to be your friend which is a wrong chioce. Then they get mad at you and try to raise their voice.
A beautiful face A tormented past  An undeniable mystery to the audience of my life.    I show, You see
“What is the meaning of life?” Some say life is a punishment we are paying for our sins. But how can we finish paying for something that’s without an end.
All else seems bright and sharp Clear in my sight Lost in my thought How could it be? No matter how close I get, The less I can see My focus is off No longer on point Good for nothing
shut them out, as I suffer to breathe Where are the words? Can we talk instead of scream? My opinion remains unheard   The violent escapade  on the frigid ground, I laid he charged at me, 
My skin crawls with expectancy. What will I decide? Insecure. Delirious. Amazed.What will I become? What will we become?Never expected to come so far... now what?Stupid, rediculous epiphany.
My skin crawls with expectancy. What will I decide? Insecure. Delirious. Amazed.What will I become? What will we become?Never expected to come so far... now what?Stupid, rediculous epiphany.
Life is so short, and we all know that. But when we realize it, it’s too late to turn back. We spend all our lives thinking we’ll never grow old,
I am just ordinary, she is so extraordinary more than she can ever, ever imagine. When we met, we were lost like bees trying to find its honey we were lost. 
  She Ran... (A poem Inspired by Shane Koyczan-dedicated to my truest friend)
One may look and say, You look like a angel, But like mirrors that hit a ray, Your life is one big tangle.   The mask you wear, Make people say AYE, But what’s not shown there,
The clock of time ticks, Tick, tock, tick. The day I was born, the clock ticked. The clock ticked for me,  Tick, tock, tick. The day I was born, the clock stopped. The clock stopped for you.
I’m slipping You see, some days I wake Not fully realizing the opportunity I have to cease the day And instead of treasuring such beauty I become distracted by the essence of myself
Why would you go and kill yourself off? You're beautiful, you shouldn't get hurt, Let alone punish yourself for the wrong doing of others. What they do should not control

Was a Friday When he was born It was the age he found he was gay And sometimes his sister would mourn In tumbling handfuls that she would never say To his face about the day he turned thirteen.
Flows from my mental coming straight outta my dental  On to a page from the pen or a pencil
Your father taught you how to live Without a hope, and how to give A kid he didn't care about A life of shame and fear and doubt;   He taught you how to miss a guy You never knew, and wonder why
To be one cast out from society; Walking the road as a waking echo, trying to live hidden in the shadows. The flame is diminished, and we are silent.
Every breath, Every tear, Every move, Every blink, Every stare, Every joke, Every laugh, Every push, Everything pushes, Everything pulls, sliding and slipping, forgetting the rules,
 fffffffffffffIn the dark of the nightBy the light of the moonI sat without frightKnowing he would come soon
I looked up at the sky This is what I see Everyone is staring at me I gave it a shrug Just like a bug Running in such a large place With so much space My leg only being one I was only 7
High School, a dreaded place for learningStarting so very early in the morningA place whre relationships are madeAnd a place where they sometimes fade
The shit I wish I could tell my teacher would probably get me supended. But once the shit I wish I could have said probably would have saved my arm. Bullying was killing me inside. Going through all differnt changes with my body and feelings.
While the world turns we've disheartened our  life styles  for nights that's wild temporarily holding moments  just for a little while  souls being sold  for money in piles
I am from the space between my mothers loving arms From adventures that never ended in the backyard I am from the bottom of arms length deep dress up box
Daily I read a book. The book of books, life, and Revelation of God to man. I read and confess to: Petrify Satan. Astound the rebellious. Consilate the critics. Endorse the covenant.
Sitting, staring at the wallsWhy am I the one who always falls?In the mirror across the room I seeMy bloodshot eyes staring back at meMy eyes skim over my too pale cheeksAnd see the tears plus all their streaks
Eyes the color of gold Draw me into your soul I am floating towards the sun of our love. Feeling its stunning warmth throughout my being, I am forever hypnotized.   We smile from ear to ear
Imprisoned Life Within a cage the heart does cry, No hope to stand against a lie And beats in pain to be set free
Trains   Steady and strong, a titanic of force and power The gears and cogs inside mathematically precise Oh how marvelous a machine! The earth trembles as it approaches
Silently I dance To the beat of my own drum I care not about the looks I get, Nor for the people that they're from.   Who are they to judge me?  Those too afraid to be unique
Every time she sits there She cies out to whoever will be there Who's there to help her? Who's there to care? She doesn't know Everytime she looks at a blade All her worries seem to fade
He became distant Speaking for five minutes Leaving me with “I love you’s” and unanswered questions Goofiness gone, conversations short. He looked at his phone, hit ignore, and left with his friends.
I’ve heard thatYou can’t make houses out of human beings,So I will build a home.
Love is a word and a feeling that is difficult to expressLove can define a person's heartPain and longsuffering comes along with love and does not bring rest;
The world is as ugly as it is beautiful, as evil as it is good, as cruel as it is kind, as cold as it is warm, as dark as it is bright— but you will always have a choice on which side to take.
Waking up to the thoughts of kissing razorsbut you'll never know more than to demand orteach what you think is right, how to solve an equationwhen all i really need is to solve my dementia
How could anyone love a person that has hurt them so much?  How could I love you after you hurt me so much? Please don't hurt me anymore. Every day I try to not think about you. 
 
With grace and power she stands there Light soothing hands with a maternal touch Gentle eyes that cut through glass and fair hair that falls upon her shoulders Dependable, she is everyone's crutch   
the air, the sound, the breeze, the smell     for years it’s the same as far as I could tell   the people, the stores, the music, the city     leaving these things behind is truly a pity  
They all say it's not an option But they never give us a better one. We are forced inside ourselves, the shells of who we want to be. Not a single slice goes undetected by them 
mocking me, judging me laugh laugh laugh hurting me, killing me stab stab stab if words dont hurt you? why am i bleeding so bad? trying to recover  but im halfway dead.

    As I sit here staring at that picture so soft in my hands I can’t help but think when it will end The memories all rush back into me like smoke clouding my lungs
  A terrible contradiction, is what I find myself to be.   I'm a "people person" I'm solitary. I'm socially awkward. I'm social. I'm ambitious. I'm lazy. I'm a dreamer.
Growing up, I was toldthat all of me was wrong.A waist too big, breasts too small.Much too tall and far too wide.My parents encourageda hatred of my body.Told what not to eat.
  If I die today would you remember me tomorrow? If I dropped dead would you give a damn? If I stopped breathing
Her aubrun hair whips under the graceful touch of the Autumn breeze. The brisk chill nips her face and reddens her soft cheeks. Rambunctious energy spills melodically from her angelic laughter; all is well in her fabricated world.
Tell me why did you leave? Tell me why did you go? Was it something I said? I just got to know  
Swish and Swish. Like the ocean blue. Rustle and Hiss. Like the morning dew. Snap and crack. Like the morning sun. Vroom and Grrr. Like the number one. Red. Hot. Blue. Ice.

When a blade rests on your wrist  They say there's more you can do  When a knot is tied around your neck  They say the lies were never true When you're ready to take a leap  They say you're stronger than this  And when you're long gone They say li

I’m broken down from being in this town. It’s been too long for it to feel wrong. I’m just trying to say I wish it would all just go away. Like when you said goodbye. I’d hear my heart break
I smile brightly for the world to see So they can know how great I have lived Knowing I do not grieve about what I did With no pain, no hate willing to give   Hoping someday I live for something great
Arm uswith the warpaint of ourgenerational struggle Remind usthat we are strong(stronger than our parentsstronger than we ever should have been)
Those moments smiling never alone Laying on the soft green grass below In your arms where it once was called home Watching the clear baby blue space up above Sun shining down on our skin keeping us warm
From the moment we were born Until the day that we die We all enter and leave the world the same It starts and ends with a cry   Throughout life we live and we love
Whimpering, weaping, and wilted; resembling a flower in the fall, once she starts this she cannot stand tall.Thoughts fluster her mind which makes it harder to give up the crying.
Our world is not made for people to knowOur world is made for our endevours into the unknown Everyone is worried about materialistic lifeBut every one ends up getting stabbed in the back with a dull knife
The day my world turned aroundMy heart started to make a different soundNot of it beating in rythmBut more of a sound of a perfect hymn
Student advice is not often heard, even though we repeat every word. We appreciate your help, and all of your time. But sometimes you're as bitter as a lime. We try to ask questions, we raise our hands. You look at us like a herd of lambs.
Do you ever stop to listen? Hear the agony in these walls? The fact that most of us are trapped in hell, as we shuffle through the halls? Do you ever stop to think, that maybe you might be wrong?
Can you not treat me like I'm 10. I'm a senior in high school Can you not try to make funny jokes and expect us to laugh. You're not a comedian. Can you not complain about your outside life. I really don't care.
Say something Before I shake the words out of you Scream at me until you can't feel the pain Thrashing in agony in bitter silence If you don't project, they won't remember your name
Fairytales, such corruption- the story told by devil.   Starting from “Once upon a time...” two beautiful people destined to be together...
What do I do in a world where your scent was the best high around? Intoxicating and uplifting.  Now I'm gone. No pupose. No sunrises. 
"Hidden Identity" by Valierose Bulosan   I am from the East and now I'm at the West Searching for the best, not wanting to be like the rest
Traveling around the world is extravagant and fun,  meeting new people and recognizing cultures. You go to Mexico and eat a caramel bun, Cross the sahara desert in Egypt and see vultures.
My man. My Jack Sparrow searching for his Treasure. My Wolverine. My X-man. My ex...man.
She is a girl. Broken. Scarred. She comes to you with a heartbeat as erratic as a suicide bomber. She is that beautiful tornado racing to engulf you.   She is a girl. Beaten. Weathered.
As the sunset hits the hills It almost seems the world stands still That’s what happens to me When I see your great beauty   I have to thank God you see For the beauty he put in front of me
I cannot walk down the street Or I can I just choose not to, Because why would you Walk in a place where your skin is your identity And your rights are engraved in your pigment
There aren't enough words To fully capture The beauty of the light Shining off your hair As you lie beside me In the morning.   My vocabulary doesn't stretch Into far enough horizons
“I’m not shy, I’m just quiet.” My friend says without lie But I can’t help thinking to myself “I’m not quiet, I’m just shy” It isn’t that I don’t want to talk Or that I don’t like anyone
It's all up to me. It's all up to the students. It's all up to the youth. It's all up to the unemployed city workers. It's all up to the underpaid teachers.
The stylus I grip in my palm is a stylist. I can create tears of joy, as I can create tears of pain. A grin, or a sharp smirk on another person's face.
I want you to see me, I want someone to know my story, But there’s no one, Just empty words and empty stares, With empty love and empty cares, I sit alone and am alone, Just one person to listen to me,
Oh, LordWhat have I done?I've ruined everythingJust because I can't say "no"Or control my paranoia or my frustration
   Wrap your fingers around the bottle, another sip,another swallow. Try to keep your shaking hands still, as you try to down the pills.    Welcome to the land of numb, nothing hurts,nothing's fun.

Society has this picture, a picture thats perfect. Some are blessed with it, even though they dont deserve it. Sometimes I wonder how did I miss the drawing, its probably because im too busy in the background ooo-ing & aww-ing.
  Eternity is set in my eyes. Throwing chaos and knowledge at the world. I fly above you now with the ancient wind beneath my wings. I whisper into your immature dreams and say: "Robbed of my innocence. No more time to play.

  Never Gave Up 10 years, 4 kids, never married. He would always do something and she would always figure out. Fighting to hold up the relationship to better the life of their four kids.
Accusations follow her in greeting bearing witness to a tainted art Sanctimonious companionship Unbalanced and unstable, she falls without arms.   Ink is bleeding deep Blossoming stains
Behind the grasses, I hear the running footsteps of my prey As I watch, I analyze its movements, gestures, and expression I stare with hunger, and drool with anticipation of its death

I walk slowly to my old closet. Dust bunnies colliding slowly with the intricate designs around the thing that held one of the deepest door to the soul.What does my Reflection hold?Who is on the other side?
We caused the tear,  since we didn't let ourselves care.   I let it happen since I was in pain, but we both now feel slain.   You didn't try and that ruined me, it almost drowned me out at sea.
Because of you I'm afraid. Of THEM, Your kind.   You left me. ABANDONED me. Without a care in the world.   They always felt bad for him. How you weren't there for HIM
Strong enough to stand alone in a blitz Bombarded... Deception after deception after deception  It will never stop It will never seize It's life's cold hearted tactic made to rid of the weak.
  Dead! My love is dead! Taken from me prematurely By silver wrought through his heart, Murdered By a man no more virtuous than himself Immortal heart impaled My sisters slayed, bodies flayed
Teachers are blind. There is so much they don't see. So much they don't understand. About us, The students.   "Getting to know you" activities aren't fun, They're uncomfortable.

I used to be all giggles and laughs and gay Until death and sickness took my family away Then razors and demented things became my friends I thought that's how my story would end   I was living in a haze

I'm here for you Always, for anything To share in the good times In the bad, take away the pain   I know sometimes You feel lost and alone You feel like nobody cares
  We welcomed the white men into our home Little did we know that they would be our emperors of Rome Burning down the earth that we've always known Scavenging the place we once called home  
It started as a spark but due to lack of care and love, bursts into flames. Now all that remains are the  empty, unstable, ashy frames. I was real once.  I was human. I had friends.
I have known you forever, You’re not even blood. You’re not my real one But I feel like I’m yours. I can talk to you about anything And I know you won’t tell, That is why I call you

Young lady, young man With open minds ready to explore. Ready to find fundamentally sound doctrine Along with life and all its mysteries. Pull up a chair quick and sit Registration ends soon.
NOTHING will ever be good enough.   Teachers compliment me on things I've written, telling me that the power of my words
In elementary school, I was told: To look both ways before crossing the street, Do not run with scissors Don't cheat in hide and seek. Friends are forever, And secrets are kept discreet.   
I want to see you smile, and laugh at your little gap. I want to talk with you, without it feeling like a trap. You're clever and compelling, and with you there's certainly no telling.
What do you want to see changed in your classroom or school?  Teachers that are worthless that don't care that don't help and make no difference in students.  Students that dress slutty
Don't go changingThat's what I thought you saidChange yourselfThat's what you said instead

Forethought to Audience: Each stanza contains at least one symbol of an unfortunate circumstance that has occurred in my life. If a person has changed, their past doesn’t portray who they are. Rather it shows others how strong they are.
Forethought to the Audience: I am so tired of students being so ignorant in class and not taking their learning seriously. I'm tired of teachers having no backbone, and allowing the students to dominate the class.
    Why do you teach History in English? You've got it all wrong. Why teach about English in History? Why don't you just switch jobs! I'm tired of getting confused. I'm tired of worrying about my grades. You said you'd grade my work a week ago.
You were that night light in my world of darkness, That bright light at the end of the tunnel which in turn seemed to be the furthest.  You changed my name from poet to artist,
I can't believe I was so blind, To see the mistakes I made, To see all the chances I could have taken, To see all the things that went wrong, To see all the things I could have prevented.  
The darkness doesn't always mean evil, Just like the light does not always mean good. Thinking for yourself isn't always a bad thing. Right and wrong is an opinion. Decisions blind. Outcome unpredictable.

     When someone commits suicide, All the secrets they tried to hide,           All the guilt they tried to subside, All the hurt they tried to bind,      All the people that were so blind,
  The voice of the clock ticks As I sit & think My time begins to shrink   Sitting in a room full of desperstion & need Trying to put all the beeds onto one string
The farmer awoke to an early morning glow As his colorful friend fluttered about squawking hello. Adjusting to the sunlight, he grinned, removing his white bed sheet-
Miss Shadows portrail is what I consider betrail because she looks nothing like me.   Miss Shadow sits as my mind throws fits so calm, I can't imagine why.  
I'm just the girl in the back of the room. You look right through me, even thought I'm right in front of you.   I'm just the girl in the back of the room. I have no friends, no family.

Sometimes  I think it'd be easier if you had died Not because I want you dead, Not because I hate you, But because then maybe I'd have a reason. I'd have a reason to avoid everyone you ever spoke to
You live, you die, you laugh, you cry That is how life goes, but i wonder why Some say it is like a roller coaster It takes you to your highs and lows Others say it is like a journey

Mr. T, I do NOT pity the fools who mess with you; I pity you. I see you stand on your soapbox, acting like you have a clue. You preach. Profess what you don't know, Professor.
All I wanted was freedom, I mean we live in America. We are all about being brave and free. However I think we forgot the true meaning of freedom. We celebrate our freedom with family and fireworks but still lost in our chains.

His head is low, his eyes full of tears. He gets upset easily, but I know it's not anything small. There are people laughing, people laughing at him. I say something, something blunt but true.
"I can sleep through gunfire," He said to me one nightDouble parked in parking lotHalf past closing time
I am luring you in with my sarcasm, I am provoking you with my ignorance. My horns peek from underneath my hair as I receive the satisfaction of watching the anger grow within you.
  I guess Tomorrow was yours, too Because you took it from My Hands, How arrogant so yesterday couldn’t fill you and you could not be hungry, yes
I see the world through shattered lenses now Because every time I fall My glasses crack a little more Crack like the bottle every night Before I wake up on the floor. I lie there.

Three words, three words that explain it all. From my life. How is my life, full of vivid dreams and hopes. How is yours?
I love the way you look at me, Your eyes so bright and blue. I love the way you kiss me, Your lips so soft and smooth. I love the way you make me happy, And the way you show you care.
I looked into the crystal ball, But it wasn't too clear. She said "I can see your future up to the next thirty years. I see you've suffered greatly, But you'll meet somebody new.
I got a call about you yesterday, I guess someone saw you driving in your beat-up truck The one with the ripped up seats and unused ketchup packets What happened to college? It started a month ago
“Tell me daddy, do you miss mom? Does she come to you in dreams? She came to mine and held out her palm, And she was surrounded with gleams.”   “Your mommy was this life’s joy;

love hurts so bad when you feel as if your all alone in this world and nobody cares nobody wants to know you, love hurts when everyone puts you down calls you names, love hurts when you sitting in your room alone only your thoughts to keep you com
Some days we are told how to feel and what to feel. It is on those days that it is most important to listen to our hearts, and not to think, but just to feel. Some days we may feel alone or lost,
Pace. not back and forth, Forward. i set a pace, and amble steadily on.   there is a road stretched out before me, long, with no end in sight nor turns
Yes Sergeant, yes.  I’ll do your bidding. Take your orders and dress to your fitting. Wield my weapon to protect my nation. Yet, know in my heart there’s no relation.  
  What do you see in front of you— A white wall, or maybe even off-white plaster? Or should I paraphrase, and repeat myself In a matter so that you would understand more clearly
Do you feel my pain? The pain that hurts, those who thought they knew me from my head to my feet Overloading my body with these meds that tour me up from my blood pressure to my kidnneys
Easy breezy beautiful, but they don't teach you to beYOUtiful, they flaunt girls wearing lipstick made of fishscales and oil, they put you to the test to find which mask fits you best,
Shoulders prickling with Excitement A bubble in my chest Focus naught on any else My thirst is unrelenting   And then I take a shot   Coursing through my veins Like a soothing elixir
  You were here just yesterday, But in a split second you were taken right before my eyes. Nothing has been the same.
I am hurting do you hear my cry of despair? Is it it possible its hiding behind the nothingness that isn't there? Our world the place we call home the one we beckon to night till dawn,
       Miles away in an unsafe place                Straight face          Living life at a base Keeping up with military pace              Stuck at war            With the corps
I am the hunter, she is the bird. I reach and reach but cannot hold. Opporunity is her name. She flaps her wings and flies away. I hit my head, again and again. On the cold hard ground in pure frustration.
Each and every time I think of you My thoughts become a little more untrue Until one day I'm sure you'll be No more real than Jay Gatsby's Daisy.   Still, I was surprised to hear
The only thing People ever seem to Talk to me about Is college.   Where do you want to go? What do you want to major in?
Son
Nine months of bonding so pure, You heard my heartbeat and I heard yours. 12 hours of excitement and pain, A love so strong you can't explain. They laid upon my chest, All covered in your white gooey mess.
In the world of your imagination Everything is your creation You can make a cat fly to the sun You can come up with a silly pun The grass can be grey and the sky can be red
Were told to share our opinions, Were told to state our minds, Were told to take a stand, And share thats all inside. Teachers say thats right, They tell us what to do,  We follow, we listen ,We agree,
They say time heals all wounds But what if that isn’t true Wounds eventually turn into scars And time can’t heal a mark that lasts forever Because whenever you look down, there it is
The best poem ever written, had its audience so smitten. It captivated thinkers. Sobered up those lousy drinkers. It rose up to the occasion, moved people with persuasion. It fought those moral battles, no more difficult equations.
I once met love at the front door! And, when I glaced it's direction Love, beautifully, smiled back at me. That was love. My first sight! I became instantly drawn to love.
My heart.My easily wounded and sensitive heart.With a string attached, floating like a balloon in the gentle breeze.My heart.Is done.Done being whipped and thrashed in the brutal vicious wind.The wind that forms tornado's.The wind that knocks over

Recycling Recycling that's what we all must do, separate our trash, pick out boards and glass and find a way to reuse. Don't keep wasting that paper, Don't keep printing those bills,
Black crows crying, a lot of people dying I'm just lying on the ground with a frown, gaining pounds, not a sound Lies, visions in people’s eyes, all these sinners try to hide with a disguise
 I'm technically single, yet my heart is taken. 
Life is in fact what you make it, check it it all starts from within your imagination, its all up to you to incorporate faith with your imagination to recieve and act on such a prophesied revelation,
My words are mine not yours But I'll share Lend you my words of courage Hope Love But I wont let you take them My words are mine but not mine alone there for you to Just ask
Tears are streaming from my eyes, These feelings cold and twisted, My heart hides its muffled cries, My eyes are cold and misted.   Hold me gently in your arms, Take away my fears.
There is beauty in the night,Though it's not often seen.Such a peaceful sight,But stars seen through a screen.
She is like that sorrowful song on replay A rebellious girl that will soon runaway She is like the wind, just waiting to sway   She begs for the path of love to take its toll
In retrospect, kissing her was not the smartest thing I could have done. it was probably, (and I mean Probably in its severest form) was the worst thing I could have done all summer,
We started out on cloud ninewe never imagined being apartwe were forever, we were together.We had it all planned out, right down to the day we said I Do. But then the hate startedthe stressreality had settled in and it was trying to tear us apart

I dream of change across the world. I dream of change from door to door. From happiness to equality. A brand new start for you and me. To walk in and not be judged. To speak your mind and not be smudged.
Time is a lecture <br/> Droning on <br/> Never ending <br/> That we don't pay attention to <br/> And think is not important <br/> That eventually begins to fade <br/> Without warning <br/> That wakes us up
There’s nothing quite like sitting on a row of bathroom sinks with a new found friend. 12:33 a.m. is a pretty great time to try it out. It’s quiet, save for the humming from whatever machines that serenade the empty corridors.
Tweens in between love, life, happiness, adulthood teens hoping, searching, needing an answer  
My love my love Look only at me My love my love You belong with me When your gone, I can't stand the silence I go insane.   My love my love Stay with me My love my love
  New to this situation. This college. So many stares. Especially in the cafe. It's like they know that you're not a member of the scene yet. Now I understand why we're called freshmen.
We live. We die. Thrive. Survive. There is no point; Why do I try? It's a melody we hear from everyone at least once in their lives So why do we try? In the end we all die? So what's the point!
I need to learn. I must write. Comformity. A pitiful creature i must become. To see the world from your point of View. Its not me. It is you. I dont matter, i am but a number in the system.
I have no body. No mind or thoughts. I am lost in this maze- I am broken, I am lost.   The irony is my way is gone, Here I wonder in miles, Around the gardens that are not nurtured,
Once again I sit at your glance, Your look puts me in a trance, My peers behind me stay silent and blank, May I object to your highnesses desk? You ask us questions everyday, We don't know the answer,
The sun awakes, The baby cries, All the world is passing by— Men all polished and prime, Keep the women with less than dimes— Desks, telephones, and emails galore, Why don’t the women deserve more?
The classroom is stuffy. It is boring and dull. I want to have fun learning it all. I want the students to talk about the books we read, And the books should be updated; not depressing with deeds.  
Don't cry for me just yet. I'm not dead. I'm not forgotten. Although, you've neglected me. I'm not oppressed, nor destitute. Although, you've stole from me. Death is but a moment away.
Monotony, lectures, homework, and papers Make things more interesting. You think you can make me interested by cracking jokes like eggs over a broken stove. 
This is for the man on the corner of First and Dunn with a sign that breaks hearts and makes everybody run home to their heaters and high-tech computers
There’s a lot of shit I can’t tell my teachers, Like how kids pick on my flaws and features, What’s the point of telling them anyway? I still have to live with it everyday. They never help,
I am White. A stereotype To a world of hate:   Privileged Ignorant Prejudice to any   I am not your stereotype   Hate cannot take The satisfaction

I am not strong. When everything in life goes wrong, When everything in life crashes down, I drown And shrink with shame, As I attempt to control my emotions with pain.  
  It seems like the only thing on my mind is you No matter how much I try forgetting you, all I do is think of you. In the day time I see you In my dreams I see you
Synergy it must exist My class mates, nor I  must choose not to resist For all we have is this class to express, elaborate, and hope it all last I hope this semsester does not end to fast
A glimpse of a new day. Tasks are done the same. People among people, Something has changed.    There is a distance. A space where time is held captive.
Put yourself in my position.Look at life, through my dead eyes.Listen, from my ears, to your own lies.You see her, don't you? A girl so broken that every Word spoken, are Cries for help…
Thirst lies in the mouths of many, In a wealthy country that pays no mind. The cruel rumbling of our lives blocks the intelligence we need to survive. This is a time where you will get yours and I will get mine.
  Self esteem? What was that… If you asked me, I couldn't’t tell you. I was always shy, I never knew what to say or do.. I wore baggy clothes, and jackets constantly…
Someone is yelling in my dreams as I rest.Someone I don't like: with feelings I've surpressed.They tell my I'm strong on the surface,But as for my soul, It has no purpose.Someone who gets me in trouble,
That moment when your heart breaks and you have lost senses of the meaning of love. The times that the one person you love leaves is the hardest moment in life. Your eyes tear up and the flush those tears out.
Love is ... The taste of sweet rain Streaking my window pane With its gentle touch And it's gentle name. Love is ... The sound of red sunsets Luring fragile clouds away 
Mommy, I miss you. Why'd you let Addiction take you over? [R.I.P. Mom]Everyday I ask myself, "Why did you have to go?" And I never seem to get an answer…
One simple touch, One sweet smile… One look into your amazing eyes Is all I need, to keep me going.
Today, I discovered who you were And also I discovred the legend you left behind. Surely, you are the true king of cowards. The definition of all things weak and un-Godliness. You think your soul is safe
You took it from me... “What did he take from me again? I can’t remember” He took everything, And no, I am not over-exaggerating..  The first thing he took, was the emotionless expression from my face..
You are who you are. Don't let society take this too far! You're not fat, just because you can see a models ribs, you're more than that.
As the trees become pale The life sucked out of fragile leaves. The sky, covered in dull, meaningless clouds. I watch as Earth welcomes Winter With a friendly, extended hand.
Ever since I was young, Creativity came of the tip of my thumb. Taught not to give up on my dreams; If I was an essay, art would be my theme. Some people get butterflies when inspired
Walk into class, look around, take a seat. Preparing for a test, fighting the urge to cheat. Teacher walks in without even a smile on her face. Doesn't say good morning either, oh what grace.
  In silence, the monitor beeps. One button and it all stops. And now he sleeps.   Hospitals give most the creeps, The dim lights and dark halls. In silence, the monitor beeps.  
Oh, how you look when I stay and wander As the sun beats down on my face There can not be any other place Where one can smile and learn to ponder With the shadows gleaming through the space
Night has always been a friend of mine Ideas to explore Imaginations to upkeep Wondrous adventures held in dreams no one can ever seem to remember in the morning   Night is darkness and light at the same time
Given every chance the fish will choose the water over the land. The wolf will choose the brightly lit moon over the daytime sky. The fantasy will be created. There is no day without the night taking place afterwards.

Love is like a candle. At first it burns bright, And then it dims, And then goes out. Just like a candle. And all that's left is a broken, melted, burning, oozing pile of melted wax.
I write to release the anger and anguish of a childhood lost. I write to tell the story of becoming a mother and father to a baby brother at the age of thirteen.
You're like a storm, Beauty and power rolled into one. I'm strangely fascinated by you,  Yet afraid of the havoc and destruction you'll leave in your wake. Your eyes are lightning,
Silence broke out, and she hid in fear. Crying to herself, hoping she wont hear.   All the voices, that tell her that she doesn't belong. And she keeps telling herself,
Another year, another round. Third time's a charm and yet none I've found. Thy upper division courses slay me, The level of work is damn near deadly.   One would think I'd crumble,
School.. It ain't for fools It'll never be cool ! Hey there sir, miss, profesors and principal I think, that it is really critical I must say, there is alot to change in this school
If I say anything, would you be shocked that I spoke? Yes I may be quiet and shy but what is the problem? I just don't have much to say...why judge? Why judge the fact that I'm quiet? Would you like for me to speak as loud as the eyes could see.
Breath in the light the darkness provides,  A source of delight before your very eyes,  To give you the life you were deprived.
Now I know that in and throughout this unique nation Success is based mainly on education So I was one of the few who decided, long ago To be the best student and make some dough
Deep inside me is a secret Deep inside is where I keep it I hold the key in my heart I hold the key - we fall apart   Deep inside is all my regret Deep inside, I will not forget
What is school? A mystery. Why am I learning about History? Geography? Art? Building my brain to be so-called "smart." To be educated, responsible, dependable. Like a piece of clay i'm mendable. 
Tell me about the big white room Where pain will end and peace resumes Tell me about the big white light The choir of angels that sing through the night   Explain for me the other side
I ain't have the best childhood but I had it better off. Others be walking these streets with no parents insight guided by these street lights. Running into drugs, prostitution & such & such.
Your world is closer and closer to falling apart,   I can see it in your eyes.   You are scared of what they will do  
How was I suspose to know I would be this strong ? How was I  suspose to know my mom would choose crack over her kids? How was I suspose to know my grandmother cared more about the money then us?

I start my journay far away it begins with the wind. It pushes my from my home and settles me in a mound of soil. Where with a little rain i begin to grow. I push up against the dirt ever so slowly.
I find it difficult to disguise it, For all my love for you can't be contained. It is so strong, but I will not admit There is so much love I am truly pained. Without you, living is unbearable.
Your body is your vessel It will travel miles farther than where your head has taken you It is your storage unit A unique container of your individual world
No, no I did not type that paper last night, I was too busy locking every door and window 28 times.  No, no I did not do the math problems, I was too busy wallowing in my own self-loathing. No I did not read that chapter yet, I was too busy blocki

The way your fingers look as they trace the palm of my hand,Make me feel like there’s more to life,Than what my relentlessly pessimistic brain had originally been adamant on believing.
loving a girl with anxiety is constantly talking with nobody listeningfeeling like the world is caving in"why can't i be strong enough for both of us?"but please don’t worry, it just is hard for me
I lie in bed at night Thinking of what might have been.  I dream of white gowns and blue flowers. Imagning all the whens.    But the whens never come because the ifs happened instead.
Reaching out Look at me and understand, Understand my thinking, Thinking of a time long past you, You who lives within reality, Reality a cruel idea.   Look at me and understand,
I wish you knew, I hope, you'll see,   How much you mean to me, Running through mind, Worrying about you, Even though you aren't mine,   I'm not okay, I'm not fine,
A Letter to you my black women, Do not let your curves define you.  Your thick lips, circular behind curved hips, kinky hair be your primary worth.   Realize you are not only your astounding exterior
  Everyday she walks the halls Surrounded by her peers. Every night when she gets home, She drowns herself in tears.   She’s envied by the girls, She’s wanted by the guys,
Instead of firing that gun, how about you loosen your tongue; Let loose all the pain from within, please, do not shoot yourself, my kin; How are we supposed to see your pain, when you bury it away,
I can feel your anger and your pain Throbbing through my veins I can feel your tears in my eyes And I'm smart enough to realize Theyre for you , and what you're going thorugh 
Remember back then when I said I was all for me yeah I lied Writing this at 3 am with my pillow full of tears that I've cried Why did I lie maybe because I thought saying it to myself would make it real
Tears, wet and salty dripping onto his shirt. Her crying, cutting into his heart. Hair, golden downy curls brushing against his cheek. Her scent, a heavenly lavender aroma forever connected with the girl in his arms.
They prance and dance all day   Singing and playing joyfully in the forest   Riding rainbows across the blue sky   Waiting for someone to discover
I'm a faucet of emotions when my pen strikes the page Clarity and bliss engage while my song plays Melody and word possess the key to my cage, I'm locked in the cell of routine of everyday life

He told me when I was broken and confused He told me when I had everything to lose He told me he loves me  
A girl stands directly in front of me. Her eyes follow mine as she begins to smile. I desire to know more. I look closer and see the pain that she keeps hidden. Her soul consists of emptiness.
I lay under the sea of giants, standing tall and free, Tilt and see a mural of brown, red, yellow, and green. The overwhelming of colors I feel all mixed inside of me,
She wears her nail polish dark and chipped and coated with a seal. But somehow, it is pretty even as it peals. Beauty can be found in its cracked and broken state. It revels in its rebellion,
From the darkest recesses Where dark englufs light Shades of grey and black seem to span on forever In the ugliest of places, beauty Can still be found.   Death forever triumphs over life
The woods are a place of mystery.  The rivers that streame, the animals that live, the trees that know the worlds history.  Being lost in the woods is being lost in your soul.
Many men have goals in life they want to complete. Worthy goals ever man should strive to meet. To live in a million dollar house with a trophy wife, To be a doctor and have the ability to save a life.

When i was born  Officially i'm an uncle Didn't went to school, but the first day i had to learn  Floating until i had to pop out that bubble  growing up wasn't even awful
I'm a youngin'.  From the world i was brought in.  when i'm sixty. i won't get gritty  based on my skin wrinkly and no more shirts fitted It's based on my health. can't be an elf.
We wonder upon this vast planet we call Earth, 
I look at your pictures, all i see is drugs I remember a time when i only saw love, And when i was angry at you, Your pictures went red But now i only see the drugs, keeping you dead 
What could the world be, if it were up to me? A neverceasing green, full of lakes and streams? No sad tears and no angry frowns, No warring nations and no frightening sounds
The sun above me sings a lullaby, The rain mimics the tune, Roses dance, Glitter strikes from each and every beat,
You missed it, everything looks wrong, that there doesn't fit, the moments gone.   The angles off, the flash is too bright,
The first time you made me yours, I never felt so brave Every touch upon my skin enticed an electric sting Each time we spent apart, I experienced a constant crave

Tiny rivulets are winding down our fleshy canvas; those tears may abide by the laws of gravity, but we never were one to follow the rules.

Don’t look at me that way. Don’t look at me like I wear illogical inconsistency upon my stretched sleeve that wraps itself around my gripped hand.

Mom wakes up by 5 a.m. to put bread on the table. Work lasts ten hours a day five days a week with no real pay. The bills add up and the hours are cut back; the repetitive cycle of every day. 
Kids walking down the hallway with they're heads hanging down. Because they just got teased, about they're hair, clothes, or laugh. Kids just walking with agony, wondering when this is going to stop.

Words are too solid concrete hard to encompass my feelings.   Feelings are flexible fluid liquid airy   They run and run and run
I love as you love back. You push, I respect that. Without the force that you put in your push, Like an irritating bug i would be gushed... In other words nothing,
  The sweet breath of a sleeping child Tiny fingers curled Little nails in crescent moons The soft song of a mother's lullaby As she rocks her reason to live. A father's helping hand
In school I learned about english and bullying Judgement, math, and the flaws of schooling. But there are some things my teacher didn't tell me Things that the new me is scared of knowing.
I have never known beautiful. First the flash of a crooked smile, Then the wire rimmed glasses. A long, straight nose, The sickening, overwhelming desire to be thin.  
You see people that seem so sure of what they want to do and how they are to do it. Then you look at yourself and your stomach just drops. You rack your brain for abilities you may possess that could help figure a way out,
    One day, I will cease to exist. I will be neither here nor there. I won't be ME. The notion that everyday Oblivion will seek ME, and welcome ME, Scares ME. What happens when I'm gone? Will anyone care? Will anyone notice?
How was your day was all I was asking. I didn't ask for you to punch and slap me. An eye for an eye I know it isn't right but I refuse to go down without a fight.
You
I could write up a storm about you,I could dust the grounds with words,water the world with my tears,and plant my stories in the earth,about you.
I do not like that. The weird place. The odd shape. The abnormality.  I do not like much. Not what I see. Not how I see it. Not much at all. "But this is okay." They point out.
Cold hard seats.  I tug at my sweater a little more. The A.C. kicks on And I feel like meat Hanging in a locker. Tap. Tap. Tap. The girl in front Of me taps her pencil Against the desk. 
Walking Through The Halls, Every one Stops and Stares, Laughing and Teasing, I Drop To My Knees With These Tears, Frickled Face, Old School Clothes, But Poverty Struck My Family, I Guess Noone Cool Knows, The Way I Talk, How My Glasses Look, How M
  A transformation. Unnoticed but yet, aware. The beauty in change.   As the green leaves turn
As the red sun dies The ending of its life The coming night begins in lies   Nobody can see the rise Out of the evil strife As the red sun dies   The women who lie about their size
I am a lonely shipsailing out to seamany have tried their best and failedcoming to follow me But I'm low on provisionsand salty are my lungsI'm cold and wet alreadyand setting is the sun
I stand frozen among the trees.<br/>Who I am isn't who I will be,<br/>I'm clueless,hunted by the gun of what is normal,<br/>until a deer bounds away on a new route, eyes wide, nostrils flaring.<br/>But I follow this rat rac
There is a time when one must step back and see the tens of thousands of backstories working together to build one using only the tissue of the heart. They carve in and haul out,
 
Creature, I have you Creature, I have you in memory Creature, I want to be lost in the ocean Creature, you are unfamiliar Creature, I tried
“It’s okay” you said again and again and  again your words sounded like cool cream melting over my tongue because it was luke warm And your eyes
I have to re learn to write because my words got knocked out of my mouth my teeth they no longer speak They harbor mice and those mice  carry my teeth in their bellies
I will inhale your mossy eyes and exhale my insecurities that flow through me like a river. It has become polluted with bare flesh and a number I am too ashamed to say.
I live inside my own head where there is a garden and no door “you let the garden wilt & rot” “I wanted to,” I said Doll lips upon the petals trying to breathe life back into the garden.
I don’t stand next to the statue of my failure of my epitome my identical and my reciprocal. She reminds me of all my short comings fawn like legs kick. I’ve always wanted to be a fawn
There is one truth in life: It's all up to you. Stand up for yourself: Re-imagine your future. Stand up for another: Save someone's life. The possibilities Extend to forever;
   Someday.
Tears rush down my eyes, In my head, no one can understand this pain, My heart is aching, While my soul is darkening,
A pit of fire. Cast bones into the pit and interpret the signs. Summon the devil from the pit and worship his kind. Flee, Logic! Flee, Reason! You are a bladeless knife, a pointless rapier; You are worthless!
Close your eyes and lie to rest. Look at you, what a mess. Sleep all day, party all night. You're almost always out of sight. I just want you to quit, is that too much to ask? Since you're always gone and having a blast.
I used to ache for you to know me.For you to wonder about my depths and reason, For you to fall into my cracks and find pieces of yourself you never knew you lost.I used to wish to hear those words drip from your lips,
Words cannot explain how much you mean to me nothing could ever compare or even ever be   You're my Dad, my one and only you're my leaning post although I love my family
  Keep your head up in the halls It's only a hop, skip and jump away Ignore the people and what they say Stay away from those bathroom stalls    You're here safe and sound Crack open your book
No longer able  to bear this pain. Someone please, teach me how  to uncover my heart. Someone please, show me how  to make it stop
The Definition of Love   I wish I could say “I’m over you”. But love doesn't easily go away. I gave a fragment of my heart to you, and willingly it stayed. I told myself that it doesn’t matter
  Time is a luxury I’ve never had At six I was left with only a Dad   The clock is always ticking Mom and dad were always bickering   The hands keep moving round and round
Have you ever read poetry And wondered how it could be, That such great words, Never before heard, Could come from a human being? Smartness, intelligence and extensive meaning,
my body convulsesShaking andWrenchingteartearteartearStreams down my checksOverflowing
For that which love does say And whisper rather than shout Only to cause some fray Then leave both sides to pout Love lasts long only when it wants to Often it breaks to become an empty shell
Everyone growsThe more we learn the more me fearThe unknown casts a shadowWhere do we go from here?
A cold wind blew,Reminding me of the good and the destruction in my life.I see the wildflowers growing and know that life goes onLeaving me behind,Trying to repair the damage that's been done.
Power dominates the human mind.You hold some you can’t define.Try and stop me now I’ll make you blind.Power dominates the human mind.Sometimes it makes you cross the line.Maybe you’ll wipe out mankind,
I wonder  what that taste will be?   Those two perfectly curved  petals poised upon your skin   Will they taste of honeysuckle on a summer evening?  
My mind full of thoughts , Thinking did you ever love me That one day you had me, just know you were lucky If you somehow loved me once and I think that was a mightThen why'd you wake up and decided to leave me over night 
Watch as he writes the note Watch as he puts it in the envlope and writes mom on it. Watch as he ties the noose Watch as he second guesses his decision Watch as he puts it around his neck
Maybe one day we can lay there and count all the stars    Not having one worry about life behind closed bars  I promise someday we'll catch every star and one day we'l reach for the moon   
As I sit there waiting with a single red rose in my cold hands, I try to remember the good times, Houw he taught me how to make cartoons, My favorite one was a guy in a car.   How I would walk into the house,
No color is more beautiful than the otherBut, I'm "pretty for a darkskin girl"So, I'm always separated from any other.
  How come we can't belive nor will we receive the golden medal of grace? Is it because we can't pin point a gift or talent, or we've ran astray? Or maybe it's because we can't
Love is a very unusual thing that you can never tell if it's true.  It has its ups and downs and twists and turns that can make you want to feel blue.  And just when you feel like it's hopeless to find the one just right for you,
It started off the same way as everyone else’s lives start out, Waking up to a shining, brightly, happy world, Center of attention you feel your mother’s love,
Snow from last night still on treesNewly green tennis courts to play onGrass perfect to lie onKids crowd sidewalks to make it on time to classWaiting for leaves to growWonderimg what the pink flower blooms are,
Rooms, Inescapable prisons, That present our Feeble minds with Conforming individuals, Unfavorable probability, Discomfort. Rooms, Incase emotions. While hallways,
If my body is a temple, you are my act of worship. I yearn for your touch, yet they quote "the Truth." I indulge in your warmth, and they reference "the Word." I trace the lines of your lips,
I’d do anything for you in this world, always there when you need a lift.  No matter how fast it twirls, God gave me two little girls; And I consider you a gift, even when life takes a shift.
A simple three letter word has followed me around But the impact it has on my life is profound A weight  A burden Upon my shoulders for what seems an eternity I am never free  
I do not belive you they say, As the Pope sold your soul away. In order to bypass Hell, Buy a ticket, sell, sell, sell.   I do not believe you they say, As JFK was shot that day.
I'll never forget my first day on campus,    Students, activities, tours, introductions, information,    chatter, excitement, anxiety, nervousness, suitcases,    containers, clothes, parents, hugs, kisses, waves,
