Life is Like

April 19, 2008
By Samantha Moser, Vandalia, OH

Life is like a downward spiral,

I am my own living arch rival.

This battle going on in my head,

I just can’t seem to put it to bed.

Why am I always rejected?

I can’t figure out myself reflected.

I can’t figure out how to make it go away,

And where I put it I want it to stay.

So the reader I do bless,

For you do not have all this stress.

Very deep! I like the way you turned it around in the end by speaking directly to the reader! Keep up the great work!
