    Let it out. Let it go. It’s okay to cry. Let the raindrops fall, Take a breath. Smile. Smile, because pain is a form of strength. Smile, because tears bleed truth. Smile, because you care to give a damn when the world seems to shy away. Smile, because this is not the end. Smi...

    Life is a battlefield. Every so often, we get hurt. Sometimes it’s a shot to the heel, Testing our foundations, We may trip or falter. Sometimes it’s a strike to the limb. Wanting to curl back in pain, We may be afraid to stretch out again. Sometimes it’s a blow to the hea...

    What are the stars without night? What is soil without rain? What is fire without embers? What is thunder without lightning? What is a tide without a moon? What is a forest without trees? What are words without meaning? What is a heart without passion? What is a life without love?...

    I’m barefoot, resting a hand on a nearby tree. I’m on a slope in a thick pine forest. If I wiggle my toes, I can feel the warm rich soil beneath me, hiding safely under a protective layer of fallen pine needles. I look up, and glance around me as everything comes into focus. Something rustles a ...

    Hay un lugar más allá de las torres, De rascacielos que punzan las nubes, De los laberintos pintados en gris, Caras bacillas, perdidas sin rumbo. Hay un paisaje que surge con vida, Donde las montañas besan el cielo, Y los senderos bailan por los montes, Al aire libre, verdes horizontes....

    There was once a foggy world, Swirling mist covered all. Those who spoke made little sound; Those who didn’t spat grey, Meaningless words and frowned. People would snicker. People would remark. All truth was hidden in the dark. A flicker was spotted from afar. Something parted the mi...

    Sitting on a patch of green. I’m sitting on a patch of green. I can feel the grass below me. Feel the familiar light brush against my feet, between my toes. I smile. I smile for I know I’m going home again. Home. Home for me is where the grass grows green, the trees hug t...

    Aquí, más que allá, noto tu ausencia. ¿Sabes cuanta falta me haces? Quiero acurrucarme en tus brazos debajo de una colcha de estrellas. Quiero correr mis dedos entre tu pelo, admirar tu belleza verde y morena. Quiero abrazarte, sentir tu presencia a mi lado, rodeada completamente. Q...

    They lived in adobe houses… We were all given rulers and shared chalk. The instructions were to draw a town, a grouping of homes that Indians lived in. I took my time, making sure of straight lines. They were over lapping rectangles carefully colored in light brown, hinting at clay, with a rich...

    Their faces are empty. Like their words. Like their smiles, like their questions, like their insults, like their greetings. They don't mean what they say because they don't say what they mean. Instead they hide behind hollow actions, moving as fluidly as robots. They hide bet...

    Worn out filthy converse. Holes torn in faded cloth. Steps like giant foot falls Or silent as a moth. Cries louder than thunder Recede to tapestries. Words woven together Like Future’s prophecies. Like deals made with the devil, Once you’re in, can’t back out. It has been decide...

    Let me tell you something child, there’s one heck of a big world out here. Life is a bundle full of moments Some far, some near. Some are given to you, some are taken away. Some you can choose, some simply grey. Life is made up of diversity. Dreams. Nightmares. Extremes. There i...

    Having fun is common, but only with few can I fly. Rolling around beneath a tree. Leaping in and out of a green sea. Munching on uprooted carrots. This is fun, but I am not a rabbit. Sitting on a window sill. Strolling up and down the street. Landing feet first on concrete. This...

    In this world, there are many things you can hold on to. There are many things that push close together and many things that pull far apart. If you hold on to too many, they will break you. If you hold on to too few, they will not guide you. That is why you must learn to let go, ...

    As Dr. Seuss once said: “You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!” We’re ending Middle School closing one door, yet preparing for High School a different world. Today lets look back to the places we’ve been along our...

    An old man walked into a library holding a giant book. He seemed to be very pleased with himself. “Ah, my dear Darius,” he said to the librarian, “I have written a great book that shall change humanity in the many years to come.” “How very nice sir,” answered the librarian absentminded...

    They have eyes, yet choose to be blind. They have ears, yet choose to be deaf. They have mouths, yet choose the wrong words. They have have minds, yet choose to ignore. They have imagination, yet choose to limit. Are you one of them, or will/do you choose to be different?...

    I can't believe it. I went on a four hour hike with my mom today. We woke up at 5:30 am and arrived home at the same time in the afternoon. Guess what I get in return? After I've taken a shower and eaten dinner I get the pleasure of having to listen to A STUPID LECTURE ABOUT HOW MY HAI...

    The vehicle stops. I quickly rush out of the taxi. I sneak a look at the people around me, quickly scanning the crowd so as to get a sense of my surroundings, but not to enter eye contact. Unconsciously my eyes fall to rest on a head not to far from me. It’s a boy. Judging by his height, he’s ab...

    Life. Why do we live the way we do? Why is the sky so blue? Why do we do what we do? Why do we have so many limits? so many due dates? so much rush? Why do we humans design our life as a race? Why do we create a finish line? Why is our goal to be Ace? Why can’t we live life with ...

    It can be your best friend, it can be your neighbor. It could be far away, it could be a hater. It creates your best dreams, it creates your thought streams. It could help you right now, it could help you later. It can make you smile wide, or it can make you scream. It can make your goo...

    Sprint went to go find food, and I was left alone in the cave. I had offered to go with her, but she said she was going to go hunt, and figured it would be hard for me with my hurt arm. As I sat there in the silence, listening to a few birds chirp on their perch, I had time to think. I was grow...

    “We’ve made it in.” I congratulated Tigris mentally. “Yup!” she confirmed as she flexed her muscles and pounced at imaginary prey. “I’m hungry.” she complained. “You always are.” I commented, and was rewarded with a mischievous smile, that a child would have if being caught ...

    The next day, I woke up, and noticed a mango carefully laid out on a leaf next to my head. I looked up to see her sitting with her back towards me, feet dangling out of the cave, busy eating her own mango. It must have been later morning, because the sun was already up, radiating warmth, and illumin...
