    It’s a cool, wintry evening. Snow blows in drifts outside and falls in huge, sticky white flakes. We’re driving to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for the afternoon. It’s been a long drive, and I feel cramped and antsy. I can’t wait to stretch my legs. My little sister, Anna, pipes up for ...

    Windows. Yes, I am going to write about windows. I know you probably think I’m crazy, but please, hang in there with me for at least a couple of paragraphs. You might be a little curious, you might be laughing at me, you might not care about what I have to say at all. Any of that is fine, as l...

    Summer It is hot, very hot, but a breeze presses gently against my chest and ruffles my hair. Papa, with his graying beard and twinkling eyes, reaches for my hand, and I take it. He leads me to the sunflower grove that is near our house. I have never paid much attention to it, just an empty lot...

    I love buttered popcorn So many kernels, all so different Why not paint the world? A sea of memories engulfs me… Buttered popcorn, so light and empty Yet full of flavors and memories for me I am whisked away in memory Keeping the past near to my heart I can not laugh, can not cry A...

    In a time of joyful innocence, With Spring in all her glory, We sat together, and hesitantly, Told each other stories. Our careful words unlocked the gates To a friendship, kind and caring, That changed our lives, creating Joyous memories for sharing. ¡Baile, Baile, mi amigo! Sing,...

    Colors poured Haphazardly over white fabric By an arbitrary artist Who takes an apathetic approach To his work of art Create a messy blob Of browning colors That bleed into A grand mistake. Bright bursts of color Bring life to plain white fabric When applied by the artist Who takes pl...

    The palpitations In my heart Pulse to the rhythms Of the jumbled songs That course tauntingly Through my terror-stricken mind. Shaky hands Give birth to beads Of salt water -- Born on my skin Like unshed tears Of fear and trepidation. Expanding lungs Cannot hold enough air To sust...

    As smoothly as a rose Is painted on a canvas With careful yet spontaneous strokes. A child grows. The paint of their life Is mixed with perfect pinks, Crimsons, reds, yellows, whites Until the hues glow and blend Into a portrait of perfection. Then, one drop of black, One simple artist...

    Words devoid of meaning in a world full of lies Are nothing to the spirit, whose sorrowful sighs Are shared not by empty sounds formed by the tongue and mind But through saltwater raindrops, falling from the eyes....

    They said I was a stray, -A good-for-nothing mongrel! - As I wandered the streets of Baghdad Pawing through empty trash cans, And hoping for a scrap of food For food, to me, was life. But what should I have expected? There was no life in this place – Just skeletal two-leggeds hunched ov...

    Two strangers Built an unlikely friendship -- Smiles were exchanged for smiles, Courage exchanged for courage, and Trust exchanged for trust Love began with a kiss And bloomed like a rose. Its sweet scent intoxicating everyone As fragile hearts were placed in One another’s care. An...

    “That’s so retarded!” This is a phrase that has become commonplace over the past few years, especially amongst teenagers. In middle schools and high schools nation-wide, it is flung tactlessly into conversation like an empty McDonald’s cup is thrown carelessly out of a car window. It litt...

    The smell of old, musty perfume filled his nose as the volunteers slopped hot mush into his Styrofoam bowl, and it took only an instant for him to realize: that was her perfume. Memories flitted before his eyes like butterflies -- once beautiful, but now nothing more than black and white daguerreo...

    I looked at her warily, wondering if I could trust her. She smiled at me, and I pulled myself deep into the shell that I had crafted around myself. During the past few years, it had grown thicker and thicker. Now, it was nearly impenetrable. Layer by layer, I had subconsciously crafted my pain i...

    Their silence cuts Right to my heart Like the sharp blade of a knife And I can’t run away What they haven’t done Hurts more than what they have Their silent intent is obvious: I am not one of them Their smiles come only When others are around But they don’t mean them No, not a...

    A thousand miles away from you And I can’t seem to believe That what’s happened to so many Is now happening to me My head swirls with memories And water drips from my eyes Tears choke up my throat Why did I tell myself these lies? I should have spent more time With the one who gav...

    Can you hear me when I call? Pleading long into the night… Is my voice sounding at all? Please, someone must help me fight. Can you see me when I cry? Tears streaking down my cheeks without a sound I raise my hands up to the sky, Droplets of my pain hit the ground. Do you lov...
