Gossiping This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Nyack, NY
Gossip bounces off the walls, hits the lockers,
And shows up in the mouths of girls once again.
Whispers, oh so soft, were still loud enough to make my ears ring.
Walking to class seemed like a never-ending race surrounded
By pointing fingers and evil glares.
Maybe high school isn't as great as it seemed in September

Wow. This completely describes High School gossip. Since we're now at the end of the year I wonder why I'm not as happy as at the beginning but this poem defines why.

I really know what you're saying here. Gossip ruined my 7th and 8th grade years of school. I'm a sophomore in High School now, and I'm still recovering from those two terribe years of school. The words still whisper in my ears from time to time, but I just smile to myself, because people care enough about me to talk trash about me. :) Check out my poem "I Am The World" (may not be published yet). I think you'll like it.

This is a very true poem... I think every high school student can relate! Could you check out and comment on my poem "Considering the Lies"? I'd appreciate it! Keep writing!

I totally get where you're coming from... gossip ruins pretty much everything :-( But really nice, well-written poem too!
