    The tree branches lay delicately on the ground. The sun shined through the leaves on the trees while the bark caressed excess sunlight. The squirrels ran merrily while collecting acorns for the cold winter ahead. Suddenly, I heard the musical notes of the organ. Frighteningly, I leaped out of my sea...

    Rushing waters from my bosom, Pebbles smoother than silk, Warmth of the Earth on my flesh. Rain as crystal clear as diamonds, The roar of the wendigo creeps into my ear, Eyes reflected in the mirage of its soul. Balancing spirit and soul on my nose, Collecting the fire on my tongue, Stroking...

    I peered out the window while awaiting a brilliant idea for the Common Application essay. My English instructor always told me to be coherent but concise; most of the time, I unheeded it.

Upward Bound is a federally-funded educational program that assists low-income children with preparation for college. At first, I was a little skeptical about a tutoring program on the weekends. I did no...

As a young child, I wasn’t always active because I dreaded the thought of being exhausted from the buildup of lactic acid. Being a teenager empowers me t...

    Upon reflecting on my own status in society, I contemplated that most of the time, people are denied the right of speech. Every United States’ citizen has different beliefs, values, and customs but we are all united under the same government and its power. At the end of the day, most American citi...

    Jesus helped me when I had a cold, He helped me restore my soul. And He won’t back out on me now. Jesus helped me when I made a C in reading, He even stopped my nose from bleeding, And He won’t back out on me now. Jesus helped my grandma to live until 75, Jesus helped my uncle live ...

    If you only knew how a pain it is to live every day, Feeling that no one loves me, I am filled with grief each and every day This big smile I hide behind so many tears. But you don’t understand. My heart aches from heartaches and pain, But it just keeps coming back. Taking my mind off the s...

    Shoes, rings, watched, and purses, All different colors and brands, Wardrobes, bracelets, cars, and money, But let’s travel back where it all started. You see you grew up very poor on a farm, A farm where everyone looked out for everyone, You have a voice like an angel, A voice that could p...

    Nature is a very good thing, That is why I love to hear the birds sing, The quacking of the ducks, The smell of the flower petals, Lots of rabbits running around, The deers drinking water out of the rivers, The squirrels biteing nuts and chewing them up, The chipmunks running playing tag, Th...

    When I look out the window, There is a terrible war, When I look out the window, I see people in a big bore. When I look out the window, Children are riding their bikes all alone, When I look out the window, I see men out at the casino until dawn. When I look out the window, I see men hitt...

    Sometimes I fell like no one cares, I am always hurting, No one can understand my pain. Sometimes I feel like I am all alone, With no one to watch over me, To tell me that everything is going to be okay. Sometimes I feel like killin myself, Because life is too hard to bear. Sometimes I feel...

    I wasn’t created in the likeness of God. In the Bible, it should say “Everyone except Carol is created in the likeness of God.” Why did he bore me in this woman’s womb? I could have been in another woman’s womb, Waiting to the arrival of a new loving home forever. Instead, I am trappe...

    Falling down abundantly, Subduing the air with blissful melodies, Raising my hands to feel the majesty, The majesty it brings upon my soul. My heart moans because of the discomfort, Eyes ache from distorted raindrops that yield unto my hands, They pass now cause of my past endeavors, And fade...

    is like the world with no God, it’s like diverse trees being mesmerized by vibrant waves. Spirits uplift my soul to an outermost dimension, My heart thumps on the blackness, Heavenly bodies sore across me, devouring my soul. A galaxy with no starts... is like music with no sound. it’s lik...

    Red and white shine so pleasantly in the sky, When it’s a sweltering day, Blue sits almost perfectly still, While red beams down like a ray. Sometimes instead of reading scriptures, I’ll go outside, Red sometimes burn me, But when white comes rolling in, It shows me a little mercy. I’l...

    My eyes stand cowardly in the mist, Desperate for Afterlife’s new beginnings. My heart groans because of the distortion, The thunder roars into my ears, telling me that I can’t do it. The light stares me in my face, Someone in a white robe escorts me to my fate. He whispers in my ear so ...
