Favorite Quote:
Live life to the fullest!


Where did the fire go?
the excitement, the spark
of when I was young

colors surround us
as we laughed and smiled
flashes of blue, pink, yellow and green

I now stare into the darkness
shades of grey everywhere
like a shield to protect
everyone from being different

I see the future
bright and exciting
full of color
with happy music

I see myself walking past
the dark grey shadows
into a place of more color
more freedom


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem based on a video we saw in class, about a character held back from being different. He wanted a happy fulfilled life, and wanted to make a difference.
