    What is growing up? When you hit a growth spurt and suddenly you're 5' 7"? When you move up a grade in school? When you get your first kiss? When you think you're in love? When you make a new best friend? What is growing up?   Sometimes as a teenager, everything just goes wro...

    I don't like the idea of the future,  So dark, so unknown.  I feel like I'm blind,  Walking into a dark cave.  Why do I feel this way?  I don't want to grow up.  I don't want responsibility.  I don't want to change.  I'm hurt,  I'm getting over th...

    Daddy, you're my hero.  You raised me right.  Why won't you get that?  I make mistakes,  I'm not a horrible person.  I have morals.  I know right from wrong.  I know who I am.  I'm growing up.  No, you didn't do it all right.  You did your best,  And as...

    You left me.  You made me scared  To be abandoned.  If you can leave me,  Why wouldn't everybody else?  I know I'm not the reason you left.  I also know I'm not the thing that stopped you.  Didn't you think of me?  Did I cross your mind In those final, vital mome...

    Dear sister,  You were my everything.  I looked up to you,  Role model.  You were funny  And beautiful.  Maybe I was biased Because you are my big sister.  You will always be my sissy.  I will never forget childhood,  Trying to be like you,  Wanting to grow up,  Longing for yo...

    Please, look away.  I don't want you to worry.  I don't want you to see beyond my fake,  I don't want you to see my pain. Please, look away.   Don't look too closely at my smile,  Don't discover my secret,  Don't see that I'm hiding.  Turn away befor...

    So this is what it's like, To find you here finally. I can't see but I believe.  You reach out to me. I try to find something,  Something to hold onto,  I find your hand  And I know it's okay.  I feel you, but I don't.  I see you, I don't see you.  You, who ...

    I'm not a psychologist or scientist or politician. I'm not even an adult. I'm just a student. I'm sixteen. I'm human.  I won't tell you if same sex marriage is right or wrong. I can't decide that. That's for a higher power to decide. Which higher power yo...

    Every night I go to bed thinking about you. Sometimes, I fall asleep smiling; other times, I slip away in tears. I stay up late now because I like to analyze every situation that involves you. It's also because I want to put off the dreams. I hate those dreams. They won't go away. Yet when...

    And then, there he was. Standing in the rain. It was as if he had appeared out of nowhere... A ghost indeed, bringing back memories -- some good, some bad. But the past didn't seem to matter anymore. The only thing that mattered was here and now. And now, he was standing maybe ten feet from whe...

    Have you ever let a little meaningless comment change you completely? Have you ever taken one word and made it your life?  Well that's what my friends and I did at the beginning of this year, our freshman year in high school. A year of change, a year of growing up, a year that seems so impo...

    I’m at my grandma’s staring at the cement when my dad pulls up in the driveway. I smile because now I know he’s okay. Even though it’s raining, I run to his big, grey SUV. My smile fades as he rolls down his window; his eyes are red and puffy with tears spilling over. He starts to explain, a...
