    Glaring, sharp eyes, They circle me, hands tightly held, jailing me with their opinions. Loudly they jeer, Their words like strong hands to my throat. Suffocating with each judgement, There is no escape, no room to breath. In the middle of their trap, I sit, For days, weeks, months on end,...

    Here we go for a day of fun, In a place to one, familiar, well known. In a place to the other, foreign, Yet our reward, similar: equally shown. Landing on feet of uncertainty, We step out of a car, a bus. Who are these new people? Will we each learn to trust? Breaking walls of awkwardnes...

    During an early October morning, I did something that changed my life forever. My mom has a few friends who are Virgos with September birthdays, so one year they decided to have a joined birthday party. The celebration was held in our apartment complex’s function room, and more than one hund...

    “You’re KILLING me!” I desperately hiss. My half-whisper half scream, Lets me express you’ve missed. But I don’t verbally say it: Just leave us in a silence. And its infinite nothing, Sends to me, daggers of violence. Questions, they swirl in my mind. Cancerous, they eat me aw...

    I believe that if two people love each other, it doesn’t matter which race each person comes from: they should be able to have a relationship or marriage that is equal to anyone else’s. I also believe that the children of the parents from two different races should be equal to those of one singl...

    “Buenos dias Mexico City!” I repeated the familiar news greeting. My father owned the hologram telecast, shown in each household, along with a hologram publicly displayed in the morning sky. Getting ready for school, I listened to the headlines in English. Though we were in Mexico City, the repo...

    The ball of opportunity, My fingertips catch. Ball, floor, Ball, floor. Constant rhythm I feel inside, Steady contact happens. Ball, floor, Ball, floor. Quick squeaking shoes, Piercing whistle blows. Ball, floor, Ball, floor. Dodging, knocking, Swerving and curving. Ball, floor...

    Who would’ve thought, A private school hallway, Could turn into the deadliest of battlefields, With just the mention of a word? What others think is fun; funny even, Just initiates this hidden war. Only those observant few notice; Or maybe just few care. Racist jokes shot around, Like...

    You’re running from something, I don’t know what it is. But you’re going your fastest, Hiding in the sneakiest ways you can. We go in different directions; I can’t figure it out. Do I follow you, Or block your path so you stop? Am I even supposed to help? Maybe what I’m trying ...

    In that moment, with my Abuelita’s arms wrapped tightly around me, I felt warm inside and out. I knew she loved me in every language. When I was eight years old, my grandparents visited Hong Kong for the first time. My dad’s family is from Mexico and before this trip, they had never traveled ...

    Words. Words; Beautiful, meaningful, vivid. Deceitful, spiteful, malicious. Quizzical, debatable, contradicting. Words. Words; Some of my favorite things. What else so clearly paints a picture, Captures a moment, Shares itself with the world, Reveals the authentic person in you? But, ...

    Your team is on offense, you’re in a bad mood. The ball of chance, Is passed to you, bringing back memories, Leaving you trapped in the corner with nostalgia. Stuck in a box, Confused by the yellow-orange gym lights. Eyes scanning everything, Overanalyzing, being analyzed. The moment ...

    Science has advanced greatly in a short amount of time. Cloning of mammals has now been made possible. Cloning is the result of a genetic copy of the parent organism. This process occurs naturally as a form of asexual reproduction, but that is only found in certain bacteria and plants. For cloning t...

    How much does life cost, If people treat themselves, As well as others, In a friendly, loving manner? How much does life cost, If other people have no regard, For their own lives, And the lives of innocent others? How much does life cost, If people have the desire to, Completely give u...

    What’s better? Being the person who displays, A mask of kindness, Covering up the, Dark side hidden beneath it, Or: Being the person who, Straight up tells, Those they can’t stand, Their opinion on them? It seems like either choice, Wouldn’t be the right one. But in life, ...

    You know in your heart: They’re right. But pride lets you think: They’re wrong. You hold onto what is good, But your confidence, Dwindles out acceptance, To their words. They talk and you listen; And nod respectfully. But you just think, Of what could’ve gone wrong. They tell...

    Your laughter is like music to my ears, Your smile is like the golden sun mid-day. If you are happy, I will have no tears. Your joy, it makes me glad in ev’ry way. When I’m with you, my heart is filled with joy. The cold, deep darkness of my heart is lost. Anyone who hurts you I would dest...

    Think back: When was the last time, You saw complete peace, In every country? Peace, where people got along: Weapons didn’t threaten, Diseases didn’t cripple, Race didn’t matter. Peace, where there was no hate: Each individual was respected, For being themselves; For being uniqu...

    You press play, The journey begins. Sounds fly to heaven. Notes floating slowly, Slowly, Slowly. Next, rushed through a machine in heaven: Bright lights flash, Radiant colors bounce everywhere, Twisting and turning so rapidly, All in the matter of a second. Faster and faster, Quicker a...

    Satisfied. Content. Fulfilled. Those words used, To describe a feeling. When everything is okay, Fine, Alright. But they sound very limited, Like a Meeting Standard. Certain things necessary, To achieve the feeling that Those words describe. But how do you describe, Feeling Excee...

    I’ve always wanted to be: The voice for those who aren’t heard. The thoughts for those who can’t explain their emotions. The words for those who can’t write. The listener for the people who need to talk. The strength and energy for those who can’t fight. The courage for those who...

    Realizations are complicated: We may know something, In our heads, All along. But our hearts won’t admit it, Until the words are said, Aloud. When words are spoken, Things become real. Thoughts and whispered hopes, Become things in reality. The untrue becomes true, The impossible bec...

    Why do the rich get richer, While the poor get poorer? Why does the high class rise, While the middle class drops, And the lower class sinks? Who created “classes”? Why isn’t everyone equal? But if I say that, Why is it considered communist? Could separations, By country, Race,...
