    Blue is the color of magic. It’s the color of the sky, endless in its width. It’s the color of the river’s water, which can take a person’s weight away. And it’s the color of The Mountain. Mountains are not supposed to be blue. I know this, because mountains surround my village in the ...

    I suppose youYou, being a human, are most likely unfamiliar with most of what I have been telling you about. Explaining will be difficult. I think that the best way to help you understand is to take you back to before my second birth. That is, back to my first death. The difference makes a differenc...

    You’ve always been curious why I eat chips when I’m sad. “It’s comfort food,” I said. “But why chips? Why not chocolate?” You pressed. “Because it’s salty and sweet. Salty for the past, the tears that come from the bad that has already happened. Sweet for the future, ...

    Walkin' down the hallway with my head held high Hopin' no ones noticing that I'm about to cry I try not to see their stares To pretend that I don't care But they're all birds of prey Just waiting for me to break Making my way down to class trying not to go ...

    I'm here with no map There's no going back To where I'm from The bus just left There's a high rate of theft Where I am But I can deal with anything (No you can't) I can deal with most things? (Uh-uh) All right I'll admit it! I'm sc...
