Yet there I was, climbing into the backseat of a car, with just under twenty minutes to prepare myself to commit a criminal assault. Nervously, my hands twitched as I fiddled with my bag, making sure I had the proper ...

The haze of a dull afternoon sun hung low in the sky, and the warmth of the tired Louisiana summer gently tickled her cheeks. A smooth July breeze rolled through, ruffling her skirt and carrying with i...

Strings of lights weaved across streets from lamppost to lamppost, illuminating the already bright city. And...

    The pure white innocence of the paper, Contaminated with marks of red and black, up and down. Last year’s work. Last year’s Grade. Last year’s test. This year’s savior. I aced the test, But I failed myself....

    With hope, we made our way through the town, And across the long wooden dock. The air was cool, and the water rippled, At the early hour of just five o’clock. Many people followed our lead, A large group preparing to sail, Across the sea to a land of hope, Where freedom would prevail. ...

    Be still and float away on a cloud, And tell me, dear, what bothers you now? Safe and sound, away we go, Over the mountains, and valleys below. Look, now, child, and calm your fears, Be still and rest, and wipe your tears. Up high and far, we fly away, Leaving this town for a better day. Clo...
