    Class of 2011, You’ve brought life, Hope, Trust, Belonging Into my heart, Brought me faith And left me Not alone, But With new knowledge, New desires For the world Around us. You’ve given me Friends, A hand to hold onto When life was Rough. To you, Class of 2011, I owe you...

    Love is winding trails- Bringing two hearts together Finally as one. Resting in peace now- With angel wings and halos, Go forth now be free. Standing here alone I see why you never stay- Because of my heart....

    The easiest thing is letting the world torture you, bring you to your knees, pressure you into the dark cold night, and never let you go. The hardest thing is believing with no sight, having faith with no proof, giving your heart with no trust, and letting yourself see that your more than they thin...

    I am from a world of endless possibilities, Of endless questions With no answers. I am from never-ending winters, Of blistering winds And temperatures of well below Zero. I am from the hopes and goals of the dreamers, That wishes for good Not only for themselves But the ones they lov...

    I flew over Africa And saw a child Hunched over on all fours, Wild. His tattered clothes were All that separated him As human, Not beast. And as I watched He sprang from the ground Up into the low hanging branches Of a near-by tree. He climbed And climbed higher His blackened na...

    Breathe in the fresh bruises on a child’s back, Breathe out a toddler’s laugh. Breathe in the sadness of death, Breathe out the joy of life. Breathe in the sight of a kid being bullied, Breathe out a scene of justice. Breathe in a lost first crush, Breathe out a new perspective on...

    Who are you? The popular, the rich, or the gifted? Who obscure the pain, With material things. Who are you? The misjudged, the poor, the nothing? Whose pain is enjoyed By those who hide their own. Who are we? The people who fight, Who cry, who buy, Our troubles away. Who are we? ...

    You watch, and you think But you don’t know, you can’t hear You see a child alone On the street And you feel a tear Fall From your eye. And you try and you try And you try again To face what it is you’ve become, But you can’t. You pull at the surface, And come face to face Looki...

    The fragrance of roses enveloped me as I stood, eyes closed and facing the sun. Becoming antsy, I shift back and forth on my feet and my fingers fight amongst themselves. Somewhere I hear the brush of feet against grass, hands on bark. But that’s miles away. The sound that really sets my senses al...

    Struggling to keep silent, Pushing myself deeper towards safety, The sound of footfall and gun shots, Echo through the air. Darker and Darker the day grows, But the sounds never die, Unlike my friends, I left behind. A single tear escapes its grasp, And silent sobs escape my lips. I ...

    I jumped up, scared and determined. Beads of sweat dribbled down my forehead, and I smacked them away. I anxiously looked around, waiting for the nightmare to continue where it left off. Gradually my heart began to slow back to normal and I realized the dream was just that, a dream. I sighed and cli...

    The room is afire and a large man sits behind the untouched desk. His skin has a tint of red and his goatee is unnerving. Two tiny horns protrude from his scalp curving upwards. A tail flicks menacingly behind him, pointed at the tip. He cackles, making the man sitting on the opposite side flinch. F...

    Walking, walking, walking You’re stranded Wondering how long You’ll roam the Deserted land Walking, walking, walking You turn and look Both up and down The gray road Noticing nothing Walking, walking, walking You hear a noise And look behind. A car! A car! Your head shout...

    I step up to the microphone, the entire room pitch black. I can sense the bodies below breathing, anticipation rolling through the room. I can feel the presences of the others behind me, taking their places. And when the last person is in position the spot light clicks and aluminates the stage, alum...

    I’d always made myself believe I was invincible, never worrying about the warnings that’d been thrown at me. Each year going by was bringing sixteen closer and closer. Everything about sixteen had been appealing, but what stuck out the most was the jingling of the keys to a car that would soon b...

    I stood looking out over the water, my thoughts jumbling together inside my head. My ears and nose stung from the cold salty air being pushed up onto shore. A single fishing boat floated somewhere far out to sea, just a spec from where I stood. I was concerned about a lot, thoughts I’d all but f...

    I was scared of what today would bring, for not only my future but for my families as well. It scared me getting in the car, driving east towards the center of town. My parents chatted, oblivious to how much was on the line. I couldn’t go there and disappoint my parents again. Especially not with ...

    It was the day my rubber duck sank. I was 7 years old, and the family had gone to Hampton Beach, in New Hampshire. That rubber duck was all I had, and at 7 years old, that wasn’t much. The day had started in Wolcott, Vermont. My mom had brought me outside, her hand clamped on, my small legs unabl...

    I slinked up the stairs into the building, where soon the fate of my world would be decided. My world, the last planet to possibly be destroyed for the hyper pass route the Grand Council was creating. The route was meant to make traveling along the universe easier for many. With only just over 3,000...

    I watched as Adam Daniels car pulled up to the school curb. Everyone knew who Adam was, and if you didn’t you made sure not to get to close to his fits, which happened more and more often. Three teachers standing by the school doors made their way down the steps towards the curb. It was like a mov...

    No one expected it to happen so quickly, estimation suggested it wouldn’t happen for another 6 billion years. I know that guess was wrong, as well as many teenagers of this new era. That year had started pretty rough; earthquakes had smashed California and the Eastern countries. America became the...

    I’ve never seen such a beautiful, deep shade of purple as I had that day. I’d been walking on the beach, alone as usual. Staring out into the sea, hoping one day I’d get out of this place. The sun was setting out over the ocean, making the ocean turn shades of purple, green, pink, and blue. Th...

    I really thought you cared, Until the day you shared, You were leaving me behind, For people who were unkind. They told you I was a fool, And that I could never be cool. I thought you were my friend, There to defend. They called me names, And played nasty head games. You joined rig...

    Leo Parkston knew that the love of his life was going to leave. He knew since that night, February 3rd, 2120, when he held her tight and she began to shake with silent sobs. He hadn’t asked her what was wrong; he himself was fighting off tears himself. He just wanted to think about the now not the...
