Favorite Quote:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

Please don't sit next to me. Just don't. I may not know what you think of me

but I really couldn't care less. You may not think I pay attention but I see you from where I stand.

I see everyone and I watch. I watch the way they hang out

with their friends. I listen to the way they treat others. Just like I do with you, don't think

I cant see you or hear you. Because I can.

You might think I'm just the girl who sits on the bench waiting for her mom.

Or that after all your friends have gone home that you can suddenly join me so you wont look like a

loner. No, I'm sorry and I hate to burst your bubble but I'm not that kind of girl. If you don't want to be

alone, go sit somewhere else with someone else...just not me.

The author's comments:
I wrote this because I was tired of all the girls that sat next to me after school just because they cared about how they would look like. This poem is for them.

"Life is a package that you have to sign for. Yes, it's free. No, there's no guarantee as to what it holds. Open with caution, it's 'FRAGILE'." (I made this up.)

I can relate to this. As your poem progressed, I could see a character like the one you described in my own life. You produce a clear voice in your writing, keep it up! :)
