    Though are days were numbered, Ere we had reason to count them, Count them indeed we do Dreading the day that will come As all days do By rise of the sun And set of the moon And spin of the Earth Spinning and spinning And counting and counting Months, weeks, days, hours, Minutes and s...

    When they look at me, They see happiness, They see well-fed warmth They see loving family, They see college and A career ahead, They see class and respect, Reflections on my parents, They see athleticism and Dedication to my team But they don't, They don’t see the gilded bars Cag...

    The classroom door squeaks slightly as the small girl pushes it open. She pauses, waiting, checking for the teacher, seeing that the room was empty, before opening it a little further and slipping into the room. She’s about seven years old, short for her age, with long dark blonde hair parted on t...

    I walk in the door Set the keys on their hook Down the hall to my room Drop my coat on the floor Change into pajamas Grab my phone from my coat Crawl into bed I open the unread message Type a reply And send it Thinking over the last hour Tears run down my face Forty-five miles away A...

    It’s time. To step up and take charge. Look to us, we’ll do our best; And pray every night it will be enough. Can we do it, you ask. Do we have a choice? For the sake of the world, For all of us, And those yet to come, It’s our time now. We’re ready. For the responsibility. T...

    What a world we live in today. Lies and corruption at every turn, Trust and compassion are lost. Kindness and love battle Greed and hate, while Peace fights bloodlust… And loses. What a world we live in today. Where laziness can’t be motivated, And ignorance rules supreme. Where theo...
