    Good morning. I'm here today to talk about the things that stick with you. Sounds, sights, smells. You hear, see, catch a whiff of any of these things and you are overcome with memories and emotions. Some of you already know about this, already have your own trigger. Well, this is mine [place neckla...

    Since I was a little girl, I've liked to sing. I'm not sure that there was one thing in particular that got me started, but once I started singing, I quickly realized the benefits. One of those benefits was that I got to open my big mouth. I'm a talker. I look for any and every opport...

    (Marie sits on her suitcase, center stage. Very proper clothing, buttons e.t.c. Nice hair, up, looks fresh.) Last night, I ran away. Mother has always been a pain, but last night was the final straw. She gave me a curfew! She said that I have been disrespecting her authority and that it was high ...

    Why is it so easy to Go with the flow? Do what is accepted? Be what is expected? Why is it so easy to Be the one they want? The kid who's kinda smart, Who plays a minor part? Why is it so hard To be someone unique? To go my own direction? To work past my own reflection? Why is...

    Daddy's little girl. While never actually said, it was always pretty obvious that I was Daddy's girl. I was best friends with my mom, but it was always him who watched out for me. I was his treasure, he would say, and I knew it was true. I was the most important thing in his life. But then...

    My brother is an elephant. Not an actual elephant, you understand; he's more of an "elephant in the room". Nobody talks about who he is or what he's like, but they don't seem to mind talking about what he's done. Of course, as gossip always does, his story has been twis...

    Every word I said was judged. Criticized, twisted, broken. So one day I stopped speaking. Every step I took was analyzed, rejected, mocked. So one day I stopped walking. Every breath I took was glared at, hated. So one day, I was done. I put my foot down. I was better than this. So I breath...

    His name was Alex. About six feet tall, with long brown hair and green eyes that sparkled when he told a joke. I was fourteen, trying to make my way through the sea of high schooler's on my first day of school. I got to class and I was looking around, disoriented, when this huge guy I had never...

    How do you try to thank someone Who's closer than a teacher Better than a counselor So much wiser than a peer Someone who is as smart As a Roman warrior Someone who knows just when to say You could, you shouldn't or... Who gets it when dramatics And honesty are twins And how ...

    Stretching for the light; Aching for the dawn; Laying in the sunshine With my back against the lawn The fear that's from the darkness And the pain of the shadows They all fade into memory With each brand new tomorrow With the light there comes the reason, The sanity, and smarts S...

    When I was in Middle school My teacher said that To be a good writer I needed To always be writing Even if there was nothing to write. We always called him crazy. Because he was. But he was also smart And knew what he was talking about (Sometimes) And maybe one day he will see That wh...

    Today I learned something. It's about hope. Hope for those who have Nothing left But pain and fear And sadness. With only a few weeks left There is a chance To leave this hell A little early To be pain free For the first time in years But some people Want to deny my right To ...

    Is it so hard to say What happened that day When the clouds ran dark And there wasn't a spark Of your happiness there To tell how you fared That fateful day in November? Did you want it to happen? Did he beg its beginning? Did you crumble and fall? Did you try to stand tall? I don&...

    SO, I remember falling, but did i get back up? I remember your soft white hand but did you give it? As I lay there in the dirt, did you bend down to help? Or did i sit there slowly dying losing myself in despair? This happens as you leave me walking through the trees so i curl my knees an...

    So you think you've beat me down, right? That you bent me till I broke? That I dared to make a comment and it didn't make me choke? Well remember this, old "friend" As you walk away from here: Though so much pain and strife you've caused me, I haven't shed a tear....
