    I have always been extremely patriotic and passionate about this country. I have a history of family members and friends who have served (and who are currently serving) in the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and National Guard. I am also a proud Conservative. Obama’s recent logo flag is what cause...

    We do always seem to want more than what we have at any given time. I used to put myself into this mindset that that was not the case for me. I would go through these phases where I knew what the majority did or thought or I knew what the “right” thing to do would be and I would do the opposite ...

    When my world is falling apart like it has been this past year, I write. Still, no answers come. I don’t talk. I don’t sleep. I don’t eat. I am a robot. I don’t feel. I don’t know. What’s happening? I’m always in pain. I’m always complaining. I’m stuck, digging my ...

    Ten years ago, if I had been asked to describe the definition of fear, my explanation would have consisted of stories about scary monsters or spiders. Today, I know that fear is so much more than being cautious of nighttime closet and under-the-bed dwellers. Fear is constantly alive inside of all o...

    Last night, my friend told me that people don’t change; we just learn more about them. I’ve been contemplating this for a while, but I have to say that I disagree with him. I believe that people really can change. Even if we learn more about someone, that’s just us learning about a part of the...

    Picture frames in dark corners on the shelves, I look around and can hear the silence’s yells. There is only the darkness that surrounds me in this place, It is something I wish I did not have to face. Yet, I am here alone in the night, Tiny creaks in the house have been giving me a fright. ...

    Obama is just another disaster in the world of Liberals. I'm only 16, so I can't vote yet, but if I could, I would never in a million years vote for Obama. To have Obama as our President is a slap in the face to all of the heros of this great nation who have fought and died to make the U.S...

    No idea about what's going on, They think the capital of Mexico's Iran. They probably couldn't tell you who their governor is, They're too busy worrying about if their soda has enough fizz. The most important thing on their minds Is their next shopping trip, and the sales they'll find. They're...

    I never had the guts to say these things And I’m not known as one who can sing So, writing is all I have left to give Without it, I may not be able to live. These days, life means something more, Always an adventure, never a bore. Even when we can’t find the words to say, We understand ea...

    And my thoughts turn into purple clouds That fill the air with thoughts of doubt, And I look to, I look to the stars. I see they’re not so very far Away as they appeared to be, Oh so often in my dreams. I still believe in hope, And I know there’s love In the gleams Of the bright sunli...

    I wonder what it must be like to sit atop the handlebars of your best friend’s bike. I wonder what it’s like to drive a car, and to stand, looking at the stars. I wonder how it feels to swim in a pool, The blue water, oh so cool. I wonder what it’s like to kick a soccer ball into a goal, ...

    We go through so many stages in our lives; some, we pass through without even realizing that we are. We start off as innocent babies who just want to be loved and held. That secure feeling, being all we wanted. But, as we grow, and things change all around us, we seem to look past many things we...

    “Mommy, I miss Jig. He’s my best friend. Why did he leave me? I thought he loved me.” “Sweetie, he’s just a dog. I’m sure he didn’t mean to hurt you. He doesn’t know any better. I miss him too. Don’t worry. He’ll come home soon.” “He’ll come home soon.” The day Jig ran...

    The roll of toilet paper is always empty When I go into the bathroom. The milk jug is always empty When I want a glass of milk with my cookie. We're always out of band-aids When I get a cut. My pencil lead always breaks When I'm in the middle of a test. My iPod is always out of battery When...

    She walked me To the top of that hill She said, look ahead, look there And I looked Into the wide open She said, look at this Open your heart To what your eyes are seeing She told me I was Moving mountains But, until my head was working together With my heart again She would keep taking ...

    Rumors have been alive ever since the first humans could speak. Most of us think of a rumor as something like: 'Well, Stacy told Kellie, who heard it from Jess, who heard it from Nick, who got it from Seth''. The problem with this chain of information is that what you are hearing is usually not tru...

    Miles to Go took me on a road trip through the life of a girl I thought I already knew everything about. Boy, was I wrong. With every sentence, I felt like Miley was talking to me, having a sister-to-sister chat. She wrote this book with her heart, and that is why it is so meaningful. Miley is n...

    Those scraps of paper Remind me of The Memories Old and new Those rusty car parts Remind me of The pieces Of life, come and gone Those broken ink pens Remind me of The words Said, written, and erased Those music records Remind me of The melodies Of life before, now, and life to...

    I could say that Taylor Swift was talented, but that would be an understatement. Taylor Swift is a genius. She's a triple threat. Whether she's singing, playing the guitar, or writing, or doing all of them at once, she's astonishing. Her music takes you on a journey, from her front porch in...

    Where do people get their ideas? Why do so many people think they’re entitled to something when they haven’t done anything to deserve it? The illusion that you can get something for nothing is spreading. The quality factor is decreasing. People’s standards are also decreasing, and as a result,...
