1. To be or not to be. That is the question.
2. Aim for the moon, even if you miss you will still land among the stars
3. Hell hath no fury like a women scorned
4. "Lover everlasting, what fantasy does not keep dreams awake?"


Some day this will seem but a distant memory
Seen through a mist or grimy glass
The green field, the laughing children
So happy, so long ago
I will not be what I am now
A child so young, so innocent
Kneeling on the threshold of life
With beaming face and hopeful heart
And yet I feel a twinge of sadness
In remembering what I was and can never be again
In seeing that last day,
As the sun sets on St. Elizabeth
It will always be as I remember it
Suspended in time, in beauty and joy

My previous school inspired me to write this poetry. I slaved over this work for many weeks and when it was read at my graduation I was very proud. I would just like to add a thank you to those at Teen Ink for reading this poem. You all are a inspirations.
