    Every day, I see people who strive to be what they call "perfect." They fix their hair a certain way, dress a certain way, try to act a certain way, and so many other things to change themselves. What is perfect, though? Is it blond hair, blue eyes, size 0, white teeth, long legs, makes ...

    I am your stereotypical nerd. I play in my school’s band. I’m smart. I wear glasses. I love math. I am different from many people at school. But why, I ask you, does being smart, liking math, and playing trombone make me “uncool?” All my life I have wondered this. Why, on every cartoon or ...

    The object before me stands Free, emancipated 'Till I, its captor, steals it away With a silver button A clear lens magnifies The pixels transform on the screen It shows the landscape beyond the object The button depresses, and the object Is stolen, now in my possesion...

    Cold, harsh footsteps on a winter night's breeze The cry of lost souls following A cloak of blackness travels along No one knows of his face For those who have seen it are Banished to the afterlife Do not cry, child, for it is your destiny To be felled by he, the harbinger of Death...

    The world around me is dark Except for the beams of light Breaking thorough the high branches of trees And reaching my tired eyes It is quiet, peaceful Crickets chirp rhythmically The leaves of the trees rustle And the footsteps crunch as I step through the grass A cold night breeze ch...

    Can I believe; is it true? Will I really always be with you? Can I look at you every day And think it true when you say I love you, baby, now and forever I couldn't leave you; never, ever I can't stand being without you But I ask, is it true? Will we forever Be together Can I...

    Why does the rain fall from the sky? Maybe the clouds are sad They look down upon this earth Those majestic white giants And see what humans have become Why are the leaves green? It is possible they are sick Sick of people and their twisted ways Tired of being abused and cut down Their st...

    Opinions. Everyone has them. Nothing is wrong with having opinions and point of views--everyone is entitled to them. Therefore, we shouldn't prosecute others for their own. I'll admit, I sometimes voice my opinions in such a manner that it sounds like I am saying, "I'm right, yo...

    Click, clock, click, clock. Loud footsteps sounded throughout the quiet, still house. They started at the front door, then traveled a few yards into the den The little girl sat in the farthest corner of her room, clutching to her teddy bear as the sound of drawers opening and closing met her ears...

    With so few things to occupy her ever-wandering mind, she sat down to write. Her half-empty ink pen moved across the blank paper, filling the desolate lines with her many ideas. Papers similar to this, half-finished stories, broken poems, journal entries, and random memories, scattered the floor of ...

    A blank page as my canvas, A pen as my brush I sit at my desk To write my art Each stroke of the pen Creates a word, a story, a picture My hands cramps and my fingers tire But I do not stop This is my art Not drawing, not painting My hands are not skilled for those Only for my love, m...

    When you see a teenager dressed in black, with long hair that covers their eyes, and scars on their wrists, what do you see? You may see what they look like on the outside—someone who is different, who is troubled, and is just not the norm. But maybe you see past appearances, pas looks, past stere...

    It was Christmas morning. The tree stood at the end of the room like a majestic giant watching over the pile of presents before it. It emitted a soft glow in the dim morning light, the decorative lights reflecting off the tree’s ornaments and the gifts’ shiny wrapping. My sister and I rushed in....
