"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world"












-Anne Frank
" Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give." - Ben C.


She said that

He did this

rumors spread

like an epidemic of

the flu

infecting those around

the gossip pool.



Hush those lips

from speaking

half-truths

that degrade

the innocence of

our youth.





I feel my chest moving

but I get no air

feeling as though

I've been punched in

the stomach

witnessing

the pain

and suffering of others

People lying

spreading

hurtful things

about former friends

constantly

passionately

lowering the self esteem

of those

they deem



Unworthy.





Hush those lips

from speaking

half-truths

meant to

make you appear

cool.



We are all worthy

to recieve love

respect

and kindness

upon this earth

for God deemed us worthy

of his only son's

death

upon a hill called Calvary

so why should we

feed the hunger

that is brought on by

the drive




to be accepted?



Challenge yourself

To stop the gossip

At you

I accept the challenge

Do you?
