    It has to sound strange right? What with THS being one of the "best," the "biggest," high schoolls in town. It must sound strange, but I wanted to get away from everyone I knew, and... start over. Get new friends, maybe some that would appreciate me. Mom wouldn't ...

    Thank you, Teen Ink, for showing me the value of writing. Anyone can slap down a few sentences on a piece of paper and call it a poem, but thanks to you, I have learned the beauty of true poetry. I learned how to speak my heart with similes and metaphors in a way I didn't know was possible. At f...

    Call me old fashioned, but whatever happened to handwritten letters? To one marriage for all your life? To those happy go-getters? To being free from strife? Call me a romantic, but why is everyone frantic to find their love? To rush it through so fast? So fast it must be undreamed of? ...

    My life seems to be turning into a Harry Potter film. My friends won't let me do anything alone, they have to be in it, for help and support. My home life is crazy, all of the time. My step dad, so stubborn, so angry,so mean, he seems to be unworthy of Uncle Vernon himself. My mother...

    He said he cared. Said I was all he needed. But he was lying. Every touch, every feeling, every word, it was all fake. I never would have guessed. Such a good liar. Until he hurt me. Crushed my hopes, my dreams, my heart. It killed me on the inside. I was dying, and all because of a b...

    Braden. My best friend. My "brother." He makes me laugh. Such a jokester. So serious though, in basketball. Head completely in the game. Always laughing, smiling. He makes my day. Can always make me feel better on even my worst days. I love his smile and I see it often. Tell...

    Brown boots poke out from blue jeans, stiff and dark. A golden belt buckle, has his name on it, attached to a dark brown belt. His blue and black plaid shirt is tucked into his jeans, the collar is folded over, covering the back of his tanned neck. Dark brown hair and a Texas accent pull me ...

    When I'm by myself, and I close my eyes, I'm a sister. I'm a burn on the knee. I'm a room filled with books. I'm a scratched CD. I'm a country song. I'm a cello. I'm a bug with wings. I'm a many colored marker. I'm whatever I want to be, A...

    Sometimes my mother makes me so angry, I just want to scream. I wish she would shut up, and just leave me be. I wish she could understand, that I am just me. That I can't be who she wants, and I never will be. My mother is perfect, in each and every way. But I am not like her, so...

    I did it. The unthinkable. I said yes, to that boy. I said yes to do the one thin I knew I wouldn't. Th guilt, unbearable, the way I changed, I'm not Madi anymore. That girl I used to be, before the pain, and the hurt, and the uncertainty, is here inside somewhere, deep down....

    Why is it that when you're small, the things people consider bad, are not bad? Why is it that I could sleepover at my best friend's house at age seven, on the floor, next to him, but it was ok? It wasn't innappropriate. And now when I need to curl up next to him, in the stil...

    I can hold back crying when I'm hurt, when I'm lost, when I just need to go away. But, when a single person prays with me, over me, I fall apart. I am no longer the girl who akes nothing to heart, who never shows emotion, I am the girl I hold back every day. The girl that hurts o...

    It makes me so sick, just thinking about it. I don't want any of this left, not even a little bit. When that day comes, of no more pain and grief, maybe the tears will stop flowing, maybe i can catch up on my sleep. I'm tired of it all, of my life, and this place, of people s...

    There once was a time when black wasn't as good as white, where crosses were burned in yards, where "the colored" weren't equal, where people were killed for something out of their control. There once was a time when whites stole land from Native Americans, where Natives...

    Why do the little things seem so important? People whine and complain and aren't happy with what they have. But they are too worried about themselves. What about the people who have no homes? And the hungry? The children who haven't ever gotten a Christmas present? Or had their ow...

    There once was a man named Ed. His head was full of lead. Red was the hair on his head. In his hand was a glass of mead. One day he met Tom. Tom said knew not his mom. To Ed that was like a bomb. For his mom lived in Guam. He'd met her on a trip. Of his mead, she took a sip. And g...

    Joseph. My best friend. My blood brother, by a knife and a handshake. Joseph. Secret agents by day, complete with walkie-talkies and toy guns in our belts. Joseph. Late night movies, Super Smash Bro. at his house, Pitfalls at mine. Joseph. The one I can count on, through anything. Thi...

    Why? Why is it so hard to work with them? My friends. The people that appreciate me for who I am. But still find room to criticize, to hate me, to find all my faults. Why? Why can't they just accept what I say as what I think? Why can't they try to understand? I'm tired of...

    She died that day, that terrible day. A car crash, an accident. My gram was okay, but for a few bumps and scrapes. But she died, my Nana. My amazing Nana. I cried... for days upon end. I questioned God, Why had he taken her from me? From everyone? She was what held my family together. ...

    Acception. What does it mean to "accept" somebody? Do you have to approve? No. Empathy. Do you have to agree with them? No. If you're being yourself, are you really a disappointment? When you cover what you're good at for so long, will you be accepted when you show it? ...

    White roses, black dresses, sorrow. Pain. Crying surrounds me. I can see and hear, but reaching out and touching, they can't feel me. I look out at my hand. Transparency looks back. Don't remember... How did I leave? Did I fall in the line of duty? Or did I fade away slowly?...

    Babe, I love you. Babe, I need you. Babe, you're beautiful. Babe, I'm glad you're mine. Babe, I'm busy. Babe, I'll call you later. Babe, I'm sorry, I forgot. Babe, that girl is nothing. Babe, it was just a kiss, it didn't mean anything. Babe, that othe...

    When he walks in, does he wrap his arms around your body? When he looks at you, does it look completely naughty? Does he make your heart pound, and your body tingle? Does he change your mind, when you just want to be single? Will he dance to all your music, while you sing along, and gr...

    I despise those people that are able to brag about how their college is already paid off. I do not have that privilege. I have to pay for college alone, my tuition isn't free. They should not be able to brag about the fact that they cannot pay for it themselves, so it was paid for them. ...

    The unthinkable had happened. I had done it. Everyone says that you can't be best friends with the opposite sex without falling in love. Without falling for them. I had thought it possible. I take it back. It happened. I fell for him. That boy, the kind one, the funny one. He makes...
