    I dare you to dream. Dream like you’re Sleeping Beauty and you just met your Prince Charming, Dream like a bright eyed child unafraid to conquer the world, Dream like you’re Fantine, Dream like a giddy teenage girl right before a date, Dream like you’re on Planet Drool and it’s the only...

    I remember sitting on the dog house roof as if it were a horse, I remember flying kites out of the back of a silver pick-up truck, I remember chewing on the foam bathtub letters when I was little, I remember accidentally catching my first fish with my dad, It was a catfish, I remember running ...

    Years go by As the fairies sow The seeds of a flower That no one knows, With petals the hue Of a fire show. They dig into the Caramel soil, The warm sun lighting Their field of toil. In a stain glass jar They stow The sweet nectar That forever flows, A beautiful enchantment With...

    You float with it harmoniously, The currents pulling you along with grace. You become one with it, Flowing peacefully, Drifting with the tides. You glide in the weightlessness, Losing yourself to the soothing waves. The surface ripples, Clear as lighting glass. The cool, healing bliss Wash...

    A warm bed With lush sheets of fine, silky fabric. A cardboard box Nestled behind a rusting dumpster In a dank and moldy alleyway. A pantry full Of hearty and fattening foods To make endless meals. Translucent skin Pulled tight around bones, Showing the sickly outline of a ribcage. ...

    Blank paper, Open and free, Full of possibilities, Endless lines to fill, Squeezing words into the margins, Leave no free space, Turn the page black, So many options, Drawings and notes, Stories and doodles, Blank paper, Freedom, Possibilities....

    The sky is alight With twinkling bulbs, Shining fluorescently Throughout the cosmos. They glow in stark contrast To the inky night. Patterns and designs are intricately woven Between the sparse clouds, Telling tales from all corners Of the universe....

    The lives go by, Each carrying their own story. The fragile lives, With failures and accomplishments. The unique lives, That have faced many challenges. The distinct lives, With families, With friends, With those who love them. The lives move by, Leaving their marks on the world, Before ...

    We look at ourselves Through critical eyes, And think others look at us that way too. Critical eyes that say, “That’s not right, That’s not how you should look.” Scrutinizing every detail so that Pretty girls Feel worthless and ugly. The only thing that is ugly, Is the constant str...

    The darkness creeps, Threatening to swallow The light. The darkness crawls forward, Eating away at the color. Everything turns gray; Gloom that drips with sorrow. Yet a single tree remains. Undefeated by the darkness. It thrives, Bright green and full of Blooms. Each day is a constant ...

    Two little feet With pink polished toes Standing on black leather shoes. Two little hands, Smooth and gentle, Wrapped in a calloused pair. They twirl and they sway On the tiles of the kitchen, Laughing and singing as they go. A princess and a king At a ball in a castle When he walked in t...

    The blank page stares at me, Mocking. An empty space begging to be filled, Yet in my mind, Nothing. I look around for Something, Inspiration I can use To fill up the empty space And yet, I find Nothing. So I walk away, Forfeiting. And go on with my life, And once I get into something e...

    We smile. We smile when we laugh. We smile when we want to cry. We always smile. Around good friends, Our fake smiles falter. We let our inner selves out, Free to be anything. And when that happens, We smile a genuine smile, Our eyes light up, And our hearts open. That genuine smile Is ...

    My life is a series of letters; A set of numbers. Every day I am forced to memorize And regurgitate letters and numbers. Formulas, IDs, passwords, test answers, Phone numbers, license plates… On and on I memorize, On and on I regurgitate. Every day, get on this number bus, Answer these qu...

    The fingerprint, The eye, The strand of hair. The little things. Each is different, Each makes us who we are, Gives us an identity. Every little line in a fingerprint, Every fleck of color in the eye, Every shade that transitions to another on a strand of hair. These little things make us...

    Dreams. The meaning is obscure, Defined separately by each and every individual Influenced only by their experiences. To some, It is an impractical scheme In which should never be acted upon. Yet to others, It is a belief system; A way of life In which desires are the root of all functions...

    The rain drips, Drops, Falling from the sky. The rain plips, Plops, What wonderful sounds. The rain crashes down, Pounding On the roof. Hammering my mind To sleep. The wind Gushes, Forcing icy pellets To slice across the sky Sideways. The trees Bow In reverence To the majesti...

    I can never observe the true heart of others, For it is not my place to see. I do not know the history of the individuals, Only the history of me. I cannot feel the hurt some have gone through, Nor can they sense my pain. Each person has their own story, The tales are not mine to gain. We mu...

    The flower sprouts, Pushing through the Cold, hard ground. The flower grows, Elongating its stem Up towards the sky. The flower blooms, Warily showing off It’s beautiful colors. The flower grows, Becoming in sync With nature around it. The flower withers, Struggling to survive...
