"Friends are like stained glass windows, they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when darkness sets in, they shine only when there is a light from within"

Shall I be happy?
Shall I rejoice?
Yet I don't know,
I've lost my voice.
They say they're leaving
but they're not gone,
our time is fleeting
trapped school bound.
Are they leaving
or have they left ?
Will I see them again
Or can I put my heart,
to rest?
I don't know what's wrong witih me
feels kinda strange
sorta empty
I should be smiling laughing
being glad,
but for some odd reason
I feel so sad.
Breathe In
Breathe Out
Drowning in doubt
End of the road,
Too late to scold,
Their damage is done
& I cannot help wonder,
Have they won?

The author's comments:
The struggle against antagonistic forces in our lives is a major part of a teenager's life. The victory that I wanted to be happy about had come, but with a hint of uncertainty. The balance was possible to tip either way and hence, I wasn't really 'happy' at the time. Of course, it's perfectly normal to worry about things like that in highschool, but I realized, after writing the poem, that the answer to it is No. The same answer my besties gave me.
