    Do you remember? Those chilly October mornings, When the other kids tossed a football, argued over a home run, We’d spread our imaginations as far as the playground would stretch. We turned a tree into a castle, stepped through the portals between the swings, And with soaked mittens, turned ...

    I don’t fit into Your jigsaw puzzle. My piece doesn’t neatly lock in next to the others, Leaving a gap in your Flawless picture. My edges aren’t all right angles Or perfect rounded edges. I don’t quite fit here, there, or Anywhere at all. I’m the odd one out, the one you C...

    The wind buffets me, Teasing like a deceptive friend, playing with the ends of my hair. Its mocking cold seeps through countless layers, Even skin, clutching my heart With oppressive fingers. A coat of frost covers everything With frozen beauty, but it can’t hide Its slipperiness, like a se...

    Rise and fall, rise and fall. That’s how the world works. Civilizations are built and toppled. People fall in and out of love. Time moves on like a ship tossed on ocean waves, rising and falling with the waters of life. I have seen all this happen in the blink of an eye. I breathe in, I ...

    I never told anyone What the tiny book held. I never said what those lines Meant to me when I wrote, My pen speaking in a purple soliloquy. While they slept the pages kept Secrets, truer than any friend. Only it and I know Of things unsaid, anonymous, not yet understood. It catches me when ...

    Someone else sits over there. They talk to no one, silently wondering, Watching the world go by as if through a TV screen. Someone else walks down that hallway. Nobody knows them, And nobody has ever tried to gently push past That steel armor, the stone walls all around. Someone else waits q...

    Freedom. I pave my road to escape With artificial flight. The birds can fly, So why not me? Ruffle my feathers in the breeze, It feels good to soar. It feels free, open, new. So long, labyrinth’s confines. I’m off to explore again, In a world that is just as much ...

    in ‘my hands’ I hold my ‘breakaway’ on ‘the outside’ it’s an ipod but on the inside it’s ‘more than it seems’ ‘I will believe’ in its power to inspire me and make me ‘stronger’ whether it’s ‘the best day’ or a ‘bad day’, you’re there for me ‘for...

    Fork in the road I’d take the road less traveled If only I could know where it goes How did I get here? Why am I standing all alone At these crossroads Watching the ghosts of yesterday Fade their smoky selves Into the future? Two paths ahead, One way to go And there’s no memory lane ...

    If storm clouds were blue and the clear sky was gray… Would we think of blue as a dreary day? If the night was yellow and the sun was black… Would we attend funerals with yellow on our backs? If doves were red and blood was white… Would white then stand as the color of spite? If autumn w...

    It’s sweat and dirt Snow and rain It’s love and war And freedom and pain It’s flying and groundwork And the sharp creak of leather It’s the thrill of soaring wingless And an intolerance for weather It’s the slippery-handled crop With the old grimy brush It’s the long-empty...

    What would it be like, To look at the moon And say that you’ve been there? To have gone Up, outward, away Beyond the edges of farther Extending the reach of our imagination More than we can imagine How is it, to soar through Our dreams, To hold one of those Lightbulb remnants of wishes...

    Don’t stop the music, boys, This iceberg is no match for us. We’ll go down with it, all the while And make a heap of noise. What better night to try our luck? I couldn’t have said it better myself. What’ll it matter, in a few hours, Whether we’ve made a buck? Cutting through th...

    One of us is following you. I know that for certain. Most people don’t pay any attention to me. I’m nothing more than a dark spot on the wall; sometimes a puppet or a place to hide. I may not be very important, but I’m always following someone who is. I am a shadow. It’s my job, my...

    The first thing she saw were the stars. They were big and beautiful that night, not obscured by city lights. The ancient light that burned from them was what woke her; they were almost too dazzling to sleep under. The second thing she noticed was the headache. She couldn’t remember ever havi...

    Hello world, How’re you doing? Is all this spinning getting to you? Do you feel dizzy Watching all the clouds Lose themselves in your skies? Hello world, How’s it going? Six billion years is quite a time For knowing all there is to know Don’t you every wonder About the billions to...

    My life’s work. I hold it in front of me—a brand-new hardcover book, exactly 337 pages of my words. It is a dream I have had since I was young, now finally staring me in the face. Fans clamor for autographs and interviews, trying to gain a little more insight into the story I have so painstak...
