    For every one thing I told you I can think of a thousand more. Like how my favorite color is purple And how I love the full moon. For every “I love you,” I said I wish I had said a thousand more. One every day I saw you And every day I did not. For every kiss I gave you I want to gi...

    There is an elephant in the room. I see it, you do not. It takes up too much room, Leaving me hardly room to breathe. You breathe freely. Leaving me hardly room to live. You live freely. There is an elephant in the room. I feel it, you do not. It takes up too much room, Leaving me hardly...

    Don’t talk to me. I don’t want to hear it. Don’t ask me to talk to you. You don’t want to hear it. Don’t make me stop. I don’t want to know. Don’t tell me I’m good. I know I’m not. Don’t tell me you know. I know you don’t. Don’t say it’s fair. It is not. Don’t...

    A thousand miles from the shore A thousand valleys unexplored Through the mountains, thick and thin Into the light, out of the dim Thy dreams are reflections of thyself Follow them, and no one else An open door, hope at last Think of naught, it all has passed Possibilities to explore A ...

    This place was great when we were kids. This place was great through out the years. This place brought happiness and friends. Not anymore. This place is a prison. This place keeps me from being me. This place isn’t right anymore....

    I close the door behind me and sink down into my desk chair. Music starts playing on my computer. A sad song. I start crying. No, not only crying, but feeling. Weird how even the smallest things seem to set me off now. It’s getting harder. No one knows how bad it gets except my one friend, and ev...

    The blackbird’s sky, It sings at night, Yet through their sleep They do not hear The snowy fields, They’re full of life, Yet in their haste They do not care The stars at night, They’re always there, Yet when they look They do not see The church’s bell, It rings so sweet, ...

    The ballad roles through the sweet air The river’s rushing by The sun turns orange, then pink, then red Such a beauty that meets the eye The wind, it whispers in my ear The trees, they shiver softly The fresh air blows so kind and calm It’s a melody that no one knows A bluebird sings...

    The days drip by, Coming slowly now Nothing changes, no time passes And yet I feel pain The wind whispers to me It sings to me You used to, too, sing to me And now I cry The days drip by Coming faster now The seasons, they change And yet I see nothing I look at the couple Just mar...

    I build myself up. You let me down. I say, "Catch me!" You let me fall. I cry on your shoulder. You push me away. I ask you if you hate me. You say, "No." I don't understand. You don't explain. I start to speak. You walk away. I try to live my dream. ...

    What happened to the parents who said you could be anything you want? The ones that encouraged you to try new things and reach for the stars? Sometimes I wish you were like that. Then maybe I wouldn't have such a hard time telling you. Look, Dad, when you mock me out for singing in my room did you e...

    “Something That’s Not There” You sit there In the darkening night Watching the trees The dark forest of life You sit there Watching, peering through the night What are you watching? Nothing it seems Watching, just watching Through a blanket of black Never thinking, never seein...

    Lazy, arrogant, obnoxious, rude, and annoying. This is what some people think when 7th graders are mentioned. They immediately assume we’re all bad kids because of what they hear other people say, but the truth is, we aren’t all like that. The truth is we are just the same as any other grade. Th...
