    I never thought I’d change. Never thought I’d morph into what I didn’t want to be. I wouldn’t have pictured myself like this. Like her. Like them. A concoction of chaos and beauty and deceptive fragrances. Not only have I perfected my façade; my façade has perfected me. It has e...

    Your timid words you dare not speak To livid tongues which bore too deep. For shall you speak a single word you fear, again, to remain unheard. If they discover who you are, The earth may crumble and fall apart. Were you to speak a word tonight, The word would inevitably take flight. And if ...

    As the airplane descended upon the mountainous region of Central America, I was suddenly overcome with the beauty of it all. Even though my cousin refused to give up the window seat of yet another plane in her history of traveling, my view from the aisle seat was still breath-taking. From the mounta...

    It is usually the outspoken that are never heard; their voices hidden in an array of noise. They leap and shout, throwing caution to the wind— anything to be noticed. Their days and nights are spent in creativity as they get lost in a world we could only wish to have known. As life speed...

    What do you think when you hear about slavery? When first hearing about slavery in the bible, many people wonder why God doesn’t stop it or free the slaves. Does God even care about them? Many Christians will read it but push it to the back of their mind while still wondering how a loving God coul...

    At the beginning of seventh grade, I didn't know much about English. I liked writing, but I wasn't educated in English itself. I remember walking into class the first day to see a large man with a beard, mustache, and a good sense of humor: he was our teacher, Mr. Creel. Instantly everyone loved him...

    I remember yelling at my mom, not just a little but a lot. Changing churches wasn't on my list of "must-do's" or my dry erase board of agendas. I was comfortable in my old church, in my old crowd of people who barely talked to me anyway. It was considered unfair of my mother to d...

    You speak to me with blurred words, You aren’t open to the truth. I keep trying to teach you And you make a different move. You could make such an effect If you just chose to rule your life. Instead of letting others dictate Who you are, it causes strife. Don’t you understand You have p...

    For the past few weeks, today being August 11, the talk throughout, well, practically everywhere for teens has been school. Especially incoming freshmen such as myself have been buzzing with excitement, anxiety, and nerves. A new era of our lives is about to begin and it is most definitely one that ...

    I wasn't expecting a call from you, not in the end. I guess it's unfair to accuse you of not having the guts to call when we haven't spoken in a year. That means I wouldn't know what you're like now, whether or not you would call. In the beginning I thought you'd ca...

    My biggest fear is failure. When I was very young, I was an overly confident child. I thought I was going to save the world one day, and people would follow in my footsteps. As all children, I wanted to be a superhero, and I put my plan into action starting in first grade when I would try to stop...

    People call you a risk-taker. I used to think the same, but who was really the risk-taker? What I remember is how I took all the risks. There was no obstacle for you, no hurdles to jump, no mountain to climb, no plane to fly. It was smooth sailing for you and a rocky ride for me. I looked up to ...

    I stopped counting the days When I heard you walked away And I no longer cry tears Because I refuse to feel more pain I stopped wanting you back When I realized you never changed I sit in the passenger seat And from a car's length away You stare back at me When we meet you won't...

    You heard a thump in the closet That made the hairs on your neck Stand up straight You heard evil whispers As you race to the front door In a desperate attempt to escape You said, "What have I done? I have awoken the sleeping beast With my sin." You turn around to face him You sa...

    Today I watched a youtube clip about The Reason Rally that took place in Washington DC. The clip I watched was on Adam Savage, someone who I kind of admired through the show "Mythbusters". Being a show about science, I should have concluded immediately that he was an atheist but when I fou...
