Favorite Quote:
Life is like the piano; what you get out of it depends on how you play it.
It's the good girls who keep diaries; the bad girls never have time~Tallulah Bankhead.
"Everyone knows that there's no such thing as a cat owner."

Lost, men and women no more
That left something behind, but are not to be remembered.
Sitting and waiting for a touch of life
But no, receiving nothing
With arms crossed, covered by a cloth of darkness,
But with all signs of death
One happy sigh remains.
A smile, stretching out, and fragile teeth.
Or possibly no teeth in the smile.
Just an old, dull artifact
Surrounded by freshly grown grass
Sitting in the middle of an endless field
Waiting to be reborn,
To be swept and the dirt dusted off.
Or painted to look like new granite furniture.

I was just going through old boxes and found this poem. I wrote it during a summer camp in fourth grade, and I just thought that I would share it.
