It is Time

November 2, 2007
By Emma Lewis, Ellensburg, WA

for a change.
to love not hate
to look forward not back
to be nice, no longer mean
to hug instead of criticize
to welcome everyone, not to turn them away
to wear a smile, not a frown
to have fun and laugh, not be sad and cry
to get through life, not to die
to learn, instead of assume
to drink koolaide, not alcohol
to sniff the flowers, not the coke
to inhale oxygen, not the meth
to get high on life
to be yourself, not be fake
to say what you think, not what others think
to be strong, not to be walked upon.
it is time my friends....
to grow up.
