Hope Laughter and Full of Questions

April 20, 2011
By , West Des Moines, IA
I am constantly filled with laughter:
When friends say things in goofy accents
Watching my dog stand on her head
Trying to get her treat,
Or just laughing
For no reason at all.

I experience death,
Bad grades
Feelings of everything
I know and understand being
Unclear, hazy, and distant.

My smile puts those golden rays to shame

I question everything:
Why is it that rain
Can make people feel gloomy
If it makes the brown grass green,
And seeds blossom?

Why do people hide emotions
Deep in their hearts
When they have the whole world
Filled with nature to share?

Why do people try so hard to
Dress, act, talk,
And live their lives the same exact way

When, on the inside:
They know they are better than that?

I gaze up at the night sky
Letting the stars give me my reflection

They are just twinkly stars
Scattered like deer in a pasture.

I see myself looking at the moon
Full and mysterious in my eyes

The moon is nothing but a sliver
Doing the only thing it can do:
Pretending to be bright, comparing what little she has
With the stars

Comparing what little I have to those other stars.
