    Nights of gaming with the brightness on high, Little did I know, I was seeing blurred lines, This hobby robbed me quickly of my vision, Realizing too little too late, to the eye doctor I was driven,   Eight years ago, I received my first pair of glasses, But I was too scared to wear ...

      A rank one cadet that hasn’t even received a badge, Recruited and stationed in a Guard Tower, Watching over the border like a gate keeper, Fingers lightly feathering the trigger of his .50 cal,   Just waiting for someone to show up, Wanting to prove himself, by killing someone ...

        Silent silhouettes in the night, approaching America, Clothes stained with blood and sand, You can almost make out the fearful expression on their faces, One young, two elderly,   Silent shadows are wrapping their fingers around a fence linked by chains, In a desperate attem...

    I walk down Belair Road, In order to reach my home, Truth be told, I’m being whipped by cold, So I rush through the gushing wind, As I endeavor through the street, I see a family coming towards me, A child and his loving mother, I make room on the sidewalk for them, As I walk closer th...

    I roam this world on stilts made from my ego, But is it really my own? My name glorified to the point I’m believing my own hype, Bolstered to a height I might not be ready to reach, Mainly because I find it hard to practice what others preached, “You’re going to college, right?” I get...

    I invest time and feelings into her, As if she were a stock, Expecting to get my share, but it was never there, It was in my grasp, I had it by a hair, But it pulls away, simply because it’s scared, It’s kind of crazy how after all this time, we’ve lost whatever it was we shared, But no...

    It’s not always easy at first, heading to a new school, New grade, new groups, having to re-learn what it takes to be cool, Freshmen, more like fresh meat, they smell me like I just chummed the water, See my skin color, then hear how I sound, they’re surprised, “can’t believe he’s not b...

    Who am I in the eyes of others? A poet who writes for his sisters and brothers? A child who runs to his father and mothers? Really, who am I? I wake up and feel so down in the depths I can feel the heat burning my skin, As if demons were breathing their merciless darkness on me while I lay as...

    I wake up in the morning and think, “today’s going to be a good day,” Then I get to school and feel like matter, as if I don’t, Like I just take up her space and I’m not worthy of seeing her face, I feel like my heart is a suspension, big enough to be seen, But like a colloid, it won...

    They said Roses are Red, Roses aren't red, roses are the thorn sticking in my hand, The pain of arriving at my love's house and seeing flowers are already there, Violets aren't blue, Violet is violent without the n because I didn't want you to get hurt, Hurt from the feelin...

    Through struggle comes pain, Through pain comes scars, Those scars should not be hidden, show the world you are strong, By showing the world you are strong, you overcome your pain, Through overcoming that pain, your struggle is not in vain, If your struggle was in vain, I suggest you become bol...

    Family, What exactly does this word mean? Something you cherish or something you wish to avoid, Either way you end up devoid, Empty, of all feelings of what is, and what was, All you know, is that you appeared into the world and now someone you cannot verify bears the title of Uncle, And y...

    Compose a message, yes please, I send my feelings through the glorious network that is the Internet, A world filled with images, documents, information, I wait for the reply, the notification that you've received my heart. Maybe it reached your spam, or maybe you forwarded it straight to you...

    The Beautiful C So gorgeous, just resting in peace, I sit and I admire, the beautiful C. She doesn’t stir, or shift, merely breathing in sync, I wait and I watch, the beautiful C. So I protect her, this angel, from prying eyes, her crystalline beauty not for the unworthy, I stand at the...

    Fifteen years of life, all of those without both parents, People would expect me to be sad, Yet here I am, smiling everyday, Despite those around me who try to turn my smile into a frown, I still stand up and I know one day I'll wear the crown, Fifteen years and I'm still around, ...

    93° in July, boy take off that jacket, I’m only wearing it, so I have a place to put my Summer packet, But to be honest, there’s a method to my art, I wear my jacket constantly, like armor for my heart. Deep in the pockets, little clumps of lint, The color of my sadness, dullen to a tint...

    In a world where my mind must be sharp, I perform to my highest, But every time my mind gets sharper, Their temper gets shorter, Anger rising, I have to escape from their stereotypical border, Enter the virtual, the endless realm of pixels and glitches, Of elves and mythical witches, But see...

    There is this weird thing called love, something that changes a person, First, you have to have an open heart, like a window that opens by your will, Second, you need to turn your wi-fi off and your heart on, There is a connection worth more than a web browsing one, This eye-to-eye and hand-to-...
