    In the future, I am sitting, rocking slightly on my porch swing, located in my yellow sun room. Planted flowers and vegetables surround me, inviting the butterflies in through the propped open door, allowing a breeze to blow softly through my long, strawberry blonde hair. My lap holds a notebook and...

    She carried her heart in her pocket- Not on her sleeve. It was safer hidden away, Tucked deep out of anyone’s reach And even if someone tried to grab it- Squeeze it and keep it for their own, She’d step in another direction, Continuing on her lonesome way. Yes… Safe, it was- Protect...

    He looked as if he belonged there- As if he had grown from the soft dirt Such as the old beings surrounding him, Those with wide waists covered in scars; With arms that reached high into the endless blue And large green fingers that spread out to touch it; Such as the little green heads And t...

    Her mouth is tied with the wires of stitches- Pulled together to form a thin line, A line so strong, No single person has had the courage to break it; To hear what her beautiful voice has to say- For it must be beautiful to go with such a pretty face, Even with the ice droplets sliding down h...

    I wish I could be like my little brother- With a one year old face as innocent as the man on trial, He has no idea what this world will do to him And because of that- Of his innocence and naivety- He smiles; This little boy smiles, Not because of a new toy entertaining him But because a vac...

    Dark and restless, it Eats away at your soul- Pushing and prying its way into your brain, Ripping apart all you tried to keep hidden, Extracting pain and hurt and Sorrow, poisonous tears you cry- wanting it Suppressed- to leave, wanting It to go away, forever away Only… it doesn’t, leavi...

    The red flag flies As the trumpet sounds- As the drums beat, Announcing the arrival of the men- The common men- Millions of men Dressed in blue and brown Carrying guns upon guns, Weapons of destruction Hungering for revenge- The sweet taste of order and justice- Haunted by evil, these me...

    He is Johnny Depp. George Clooney, Brad Pitt... Channing Tatum. He is even Arnold Schwarzenegger, especially when starring in the Terminator movies... not knowing if he is good this time or bad the next... or maybe a combination of the two. He is an actor, and like all these actors he is a go...

    “Jewels.” Not diamonds or rubies, but my name, written out in sloppy, childish hand writing, with a backwards “J” and funny looking “E’s”. It was written in pencil on a white sheet of computer paper. Similar “Jewels’s” were written out on the same paper, scattered in different...

    Reading used to be fun. It used to mean getting lost in skillfully written words, lost in other people’s imaginations, lost in worlds; but not too lost that I couldn’t find my way back home. I used to read for hours on end, enjoying the plots that seemed to unravel themselves. Reading used to be...

    I never had the chance to call her grandma. Never had the chance to feel her touch, to hear her voice, to learn her scent. I was thirty-seven years too late. To me, she is my mother’s middle name, the source of my small figure, the picture on my shelf. But that’s all. My mom rarely shares any...

    They came with guns. Sanjit had never seen these deadly weapons in person nor had he ever wanted to. He knew they could cause death in an instant; that they sounded like an explosion- louder even than the ones on television. He was standing behind Sarah, who had opened the front door. He knew ...

    I love you like the sun loves the moon; like the ocean loves the land And though we aren't miles apart We're still two star-crossed lovers; you and I ... With no way of reaching each other Driven away by force; the land and ocean, like the moon and sun And if the stars up ab...

    “I love you.” These three words stranded together were said to me by my boyfriend, after we had stopped dancing our first dance together. He had picked an excellent time to say it, probably even a romantic time. I was shocked, surprised,… and delighted. My brain wasn’t working, and logic ...

    Standing out in the rain… Watching the lightning strike… Listening to the thunder clash… Letting the storm bring back memories of the past… Flashing across my mind… Like the lightning in the sky… The memories that taught me how to fear… And how to cry… The tears run down ...

    You know that cute little polar bear at the zoo that plays with that little pink ball? Can you imagine its species going extinct? Well, scientists say that if humans don’t try to help, polar bears will be vulnerable to extinction within the next century. It may seem a long time away, but what we h...

    I’ll grab your hand and you’ll grab mine And we’ll dance together by the shoreline. We’ll dance together listening to the sweet music tone Of the man’s saxophone. The man was standing by the shoreline Where I grabbed your hand and you grabbed mine. I’ll sway with you, you...
