    I am a bright red flag held by the base with sweaty palms. Pointing at the gym floor I wait until a ball is actually served so I can do my job. The score is 24 to 24, game point and a cadet’s player is going up to serve. She has straight blond hair which is tied up in a ponytail which is adorned w...

    All of my life’s work had paid off. I have gotten to this place of pure nerves, happiness, and excitement. I have climbed the leader board and now I’m on top. I dreamed this day would come for years and now finally that dream could become reality. The sand burns like coals beneath my feet pre...

    Hundreds of whitetail deer are killed every year by cars and are left to die on the side of the road. I have been hunting with my family for over 4 years and I am a better person because of it. Many people state that hunting is inhumane and “killing Bambi” but isn’t running over a deer just as...

    It’s hard to think, When thoughts of you cloud my view. It’s hard to see, When all I see is you. It’s hard to feel, When all I feel is your lips on mine. It’s hard to breathe, When my heart thunders into oblivion. It’s hard to walk, When I imagine your arms around me. It’s hard...

    Alone, In the darkness. Or so I think. His movements are whispers. His breath as hot as coals. Every feeling that I get, But I still don’t see him yet. Patience my darling, The words that escape his lips. Disguised in an angel’s voice, A demon lies beneath/ Don’t trust him my darlin...

    A pair of eyes in the darkness stare back at me, A face in the mirror behind me. His cold breath brings goose bumps to my skin. His even colder fingers navigate their way up my spine, Leaving tingles in their place. His lips inch closer and closer to my neck. I smell a hint of strawberries on ...

    There are people out there who make a big difference. The people in our lives we overlook and don’t give a second thought. A teacher staying late after school to tutor kids, Using their time to help others. A person giving their extra change to help a homeless person, Using their money to hel...

    He’s only gonna hurt you, And leave you crying alone. Who are you gonna turn to, When he stops answering the phone? Your just a girl to him, Nothing special. He lies to you, Can’t you see? He’s not for you, Just trust me. He’s the best thing in your world right now, According to ...

    Where did you go? I miss you so. Please come back to me. I know it’s impossible but please try. Try your hardest to reach out to me. One day you will, One day it will be mine time to go. One day I will see you again. I will see you soon, And the wondrous gates of heaven will part, Just f...

    I walk down the hallway knowing I’m not alone. Muffled snickers sound around me but I keep my head held high. I usually rely on myself for comfort but today is different. I let someone in for the first time. I realized I needed your help. No one can do it on their own. You changed my life fo...

    I let you in, Only to hurt me. I let you in, Because I thought you cared. I let you in, Because I trusted you. I let you in, Because you boasted my confidence. I let you in, Because you were always there. I let you in, For a while. I let you in, Until you turned you back one me. I let...

    I can feel you next to me. I can’t see you but I know that you’re there. I can feel your hot breath on my cool skin. You bring goose bumps to my pale skin whenever a thought of you crosses my mind. You are there when I’m asleep, You are there when I’m awake, You are there whenever, or ...

    My hearts pounding to the beat of the music. Sweaty palms make contact with an equally sweaty forehead. My voice trembles during the chorus. It trembles, weak from effort. Counting down the seconds until the solo. Counting down the seconds until my big break. I draw in one last ragged breath p...

    Send me a sign, So I know you’re with me. Send me a sign, So I know you’ll never leave me. Send me a sign, Even when you’re gone. Send me a sign, As bright as the breaking dawn. Send me a sign, So I know your okay. Send me a sign, To get me through the day....

    As you sleep your mind subsides into the dark abyss of your imagination. Your darkest fear becomes your reality. Whether a dark nightmare or a fairytale, You can’t control it nor can you stop it. You may awake with a cold sweat trickling down your skin and your heart racing a mile a minute. S...

    A single tear falls down a pale cold cheek. It falls to the ground causing a small spatter. It rests, and several others join that single tear. Can you see these tears in your mind? Can you feel them ricocheting off your skin? A single tear turns to dozens as I sit alone. Each tear is a part o...

    You’re my best friend, But you’re more than that. You make me laugh when all I want to do is cry. You give me life when all I want to do is die. A single tear shed and I am gathered in your open arms. Together for all of eternity For all of eternity you’ll be there for me. For all of et...

    Is this what it has come to? A once great nation divided by race. A once great nation divided by color. Aren’t we all the same? We are all humans looking for a change. Looking for a leader to fix all our troubles. Looking for someone to make things right. Looking for a glimmer of hope in a ...

    I’m on the mend, From the hurt you’ve caused me. I’m on the mend, From your abandonment. I’m on the mend, From the countless tears I’ve shed for you. I’m on the mend, From the countless nights I’ve spent alone. I’m on the mend, And always will be. I’m on the mend, From y...

    If I make you happy, Why do you frown? If I make you happy, Why do you always put me down? It hurts the words you say, The way you look down your nose at me everyday. If I make you happy, Why does your every word puncture my heart? If I make you happy, Why do you tear me apart? If I make...

    You can’t see me anymore, I’m invisible to you. Nothing will be the same. Your eyes are clouded by the opinions of others. Those same eyes I would turn to. Those same eyes that welled up with tears at my troubles. Those same eyes are gone....

    No one feels my pain. No one knows what it feels like to have no home. Everyone passes my by without feeling a single glint of pity. I have no job. I have no family. I live on a street corner. All I have is one single jacket. I’ve been through some of the harshest winters. But I always pul...

    I walk through the small iron gate to get to The Great Frederick Fair as I do this year only this time it is different. I am with my friends Alissa and Terra and this year we are old enough to go the fair without any parental supervision. So to us these are the gates of freedom. Immediately as I wal...
