Favorite Quote:
"What are men compared to rocks and mountains" Pride and Prejudice

A tattered flag flapped in the harsh wind
Its edges frayed, just some linen
Faded red, yellowed white and light blue
Undone, forgotten, misplaced, but all true
Rusting and bent, the pole stands alone
The gears that once hoisted it groan,
With the weight to bear
Of disappointment for all to share
Good intentions gone awry
Bullets that pierced the sky
Prevention is all that is needed
To stop this massacre, a message heeded
It's not the only view
Some see right through

The author's comments:
This is a bit political and I hope many teens like me realize that most things are guilded by a beautiful facade but you need to uncover them to find the truth.
