    Gwen inspected her recently pedicured feet. Was that a chip in the sparkly hot-pink nail polish she saw? Shoot! She though angrily. I guess I’ll just have to wear my cream-colored ballet flats instead of my silver sandals. It was the first Monday in August, and Gwen’s best friend Jovi was com...

    Go ahead: Shave your seven-year-old’s legs And pluck the hairs from around her eyes Apply a ton of make-up to her small face And fill her head with lies. Make her practice her routine Like a model on a runway And don’t you dare forget about the spray-tanning That she’s supposed to get ...

    Who are you To be calling me names I’m just a nerd Playing academic games Who are you To be pointing out my flaws When you’ve yet to mention Any of yours Who are you As you walk down the hall With your picture-worthy smile I feel my self-esteem Lower all the while With your shape...

    Caesar took a deep breath in and then let it out slowly in an attempt to calm his nerves. It failed, however, and he was left to stare at the small cloud his warm breath had formed in the frigid winter air. It was mid-January, and the weather had been relentless and unforgiving the past few days. A ...

    Global warming is the average increase in Earth’s temperature, which results in a change of climate. I’m sure you have all heard of global warming before, but have you ever searched deeper into this not-so-natural phenomenon? No? Well, then let me do the dirty-work for you- I’ll dig deeper and...

    My name is Vasco Nunez de Balboa and I was born in Jerez de los Caballeros, Spain sometime in the year 1475. I don’t know the exact day or month I was born and I probably never will, just as I will never know my mother’s name. In fact, I don’t remember much of my early years at all, but the fe...

    I see all of the other Africans around me. I believe there are about 609 of us, even though this boat is only meant to hold around 300 people. As I look around, I see mainly African males between the ages of twenty and thirty years old. These men were highly sought after by the white people because ...

    Right now, life is like a crowded hallway: You want to get out and move on, but there’s nowhere to go Your feet are able to make tiny steps forward, but that is all At this rate, it will take you forever to get to the other side of the hallway Part of you wants to turn around Part of you want...

    Some schools are cool While others are not In grades 6 through 8 Many battles are fought From girly-girl gossip To punches and kicks There are some things in school That teachers can’t fix The variety in classes Is good for some But for others, well It’s a pain in the bum Weekends ...

    I gaze out the window, my head resting on my hand, ever the image of the average bored student. My teacher continues his lecture as the rain falls on the other side of the smudged glass. His words run through my head every so often, so here and there I hear a, “density is a property that relates...

    We were like two giggling toddlers as we walked down the ninth grade hallway to math class. It was just the two of us in that empty hallway; just me and Ryan and the lockers and the scattered papers on the floor that students had carelessly dropped. I was with my savior, the soul that had willingly ...

    For the first time in days a cool breeze blows through the otherwise warm air. Golden leaves flutter to the ground as tall oak trees sway, eager to rid themselves of their foliage. The sound of leaves rustling, still green and healthy as they cling to the trees surrounding me, fill my soul with a se...

    Love is the rhythm that a heart beats to Be it short and fast-paced, like a hare running from its predator Or long and slow, like an elephant as it lumbers its way to the watering hole on the other side of the hot savanna This love can be happy and overflowing with joyous moments It can also be ...

    White is a color that says nothing But is full of meaning White is the color of snow As it flutters gently to the ground White is the color of noise Muffled, together, unseparated White is the color of paper Before artwork is created White is the color of clouds Floating gracefully, flyin...

    A stabbing pain in my side awakens me from my slumber. I open my eyes to find a manly face full of wrinkles staring at me, sweat dripping down his red cheeks, his eyes brimming with determination and power. The pain comes again, and again, and again. I think, what is happening? Where is the pain com...

    As I look up at the starry night sky I feel so small. Lying there in the soft, springy grass of my backyard I see hundreds of bright and shining stars. There is no moon out and the sky seems so dark, which makes the stars look even brighter. I wish that I could float among those stars and speak to t...
