Favorite Quote:
Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, nothing else ever has. ~Margaret Mead


“It’s a chance to start over,”
They always told me.
Where is my three-leafed clover?
Luck is my only plea.

Luck eludes me, as always,
And yet again—I prepare for moving.
Hunching over my bag in the new hallways,
I just hope these new kids are approving.

Only a year, or two, has passed
And alas, I am comfortable, no longer the new girl,
But this is not a situation that lasts.
Yet again, comes the moving, the new friends, and the hurl.

The butterflies in my stomach
Have made themselves a home there.
From city to city, state to state, country to country,
I’m forever the new girl.

The author's comments:
To all teens who are moving--don't worry! Its bad at first, but it gets a lot better. Just keep looking to the future, never glance back at the past.
