    School is like a safe haven for me. Ever since I started high school (two weeks ago, but it feels like it’s been two years) I’ve felt more comfortable in school. In middle school, I had to take regular classes and I was usually stuck with a bunch of idiots. By ‘idiots’ I don’t mean they we...

    The figures of Raphael Are elegant and delicate Flowing across the beautiful landscape Their features glow warmly Beautifying all around them Like flowers in a heavenly garden, They take their place in the lovely art Of the centuries. But you do not recall to me The figures of Raphael. ...

    Wild waves wash wearily Over wasted waters. Shores, once sandy Sit sadly as the waves fall back and forth. Gray sky above, horizon blocked By looming black storm clouds Waves wash over waters Wild and blue no more....

    Most days life is like a train, that goes Passing by so fast that you can't see outside Sometimes when it's quiet and you're alone You can see the past, silently passing by You want to take it and never let go But you have to learn to say goodbye Every last memory and every lo...

    It was late night at the orphanage, one of the last orphanages in the country, and visiting hours were over. The place felt somewhat safe to the curly-haired, olive-skinned preteen who stuck her moccasins under the bed. It wasn’t the most comfortable place in the world, but she’d stayed in much ...

    It’s raining and it’s cold, and even though it’s June it feels like April. The white sky tells me nothing. I’m so tired but I’m trying not to close my eyes because then I’ll see him, and then I’ll cry. I look back down the emerald-green, dew-coated hill, feigning wonder over what tw...

    In the long summer after my sixth-grade year, one of my favorite childhood books challenged me to remember my most vivid memory. I was instantly transported to a week from the summer before. More than anything, I remembered the pure white sheets over my head, the soft early-morning summer sun pourin...

    I never opted for the rose That bloomed like wild on a summer morn I never could be one of those Whose shoulders lilacs would adorn The child must always be seen and not heard The woman can only be mother and wife The sheep must always follow the herd So honored in death and scorned in life ...

    Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? No, that would be stupid. Firstly, the days of summer are often lame, And I'm biased, thanks to Cupid. It's not that you're lovely or temperate, though; No, you possess something far better Something that makes me feel like cookie dough So w...

    Lost your childhood best friend (It's all OK, we're all the same) Brain cells at an untimely end (It's all OK, we're all the same) That's an idiot you love so much (It's all OK, we're all the same) You look so out of it at lunch It's all OK, we're ...

    Rhonda ran the brush through her hair again and applied the last coat of lip gloss. Beautiful, she thought. Something flinched in the back of her mind, but she brushed it back with the rest of the forty years of memories she had there. Adjusting her black velvet dress strap, she walked down the s...

    How ever so sorry am I; that I dared speak my mind. Did that rhyme? Oh, so sorry yet again. I hope there wasn’t too much sarcasm in the last sentence to insult you, my dears. For if my readers were offended I shan’t have lived with myself. These thoughts run through my head as I read the com...

    In 1492, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella issued an edict that expelled all the Jews from Spain. They were to leave without their money or their possessions. Many Jews who had found success and wealth in Spain didn’t find this too appealing, so they tried to get around the edict. To do this, they...

    People ask me what my pet peeve is, and it’s easy to answer: Wannabes. Not just social wannabes who think they’re totally popular but they’re not even close. They’re annoying, but what I hate is talent wannabes. You know who I mean. The girl who walks into school showing off her new pain...

    “You have received a 2 out of 5 star rating.” “Your article has 0 comments.” The cold words are flat on the screen. I sigh and lean backward onto the hard wood of the study hall bleachers. I’m a loser, eh? I think as I silently glare at all the students whose hate for me floats invisib...

    As a little kid, I loved candy. Loved slowly unwrapping silver tinfoil and colorful plastic wrappers to unearth the sweets below. I loved the first bite, the chocolaty goodness overwhelming my taste buds or the tangy fruitiness of a piece of taffy making me enjoy the day a little more. I loved the f...

    After finishing my homework, I went out to check out the city. As a little seven-year-old, I wasn’t allowed to leave the back lane; but as a little seven-year-old, I thought this was a world of adventure. Since all the scary kids were now inside the stores, I was free to roam the back lane, my kin...
