    Rosy pink blossoms kiss the crisp air. The frozen grass unthawing, waving with the beat of spring. The music of the birds chirping, a tune unheard for many months. The golden rays peeking out from behind gray cotton balls, Rabbits bounding out of their holes, excited to greet the new day. Spri...

    They can tear apart, they can draw together They can burn, freeze, sting They can blossom, electrify, save a life. They are beautiful and terrifying, gorgeous and treacherous, causing tears for two completely different reasons. Words are complicated and wonderfully simple. A word is a verbal...

    Love is a suffering man on a mangled cross. Love is a savior who paid the cost. Love is carrying the burdens, the price. Taking the blame when you know you were right. Love is someone who stays by your side. Won’t leave your sight during hard times. Love is being wrapped up in strong arms. ...

    I’m walking, treading, pushing on. My endurance supply dwindling to the last drop. I don’t know where this path will lead, Curving, snaking, each fork in the road bringing another mystery, and only a clue as to what direction I’m headed. Slowly sauntering silently through the wet, stormy...

    I look out the cloudy glass. An intruder on nature, but also a Part of the scenery. Peering out as the repetitive Golden fields of wheat pass And patches of soybeans Come up to meet The pale, endless sky, aglow with The evening sun shining into my Awestruck eyes, right through The finger...

    I'm as sure as I am of my next breath As positive as I am of my next step As long as the world revolves, it'll revolve around you Life throws me mysteries to solve and I haven't a clue But I know that I'll always love you. As long as the sun keeps shinin' As long as ...

    I don't know what I'd be Without You to catch me Without Your eyes to see for me Without Your arms to surround me Your salvation is the key To perfect eternity So come and kneel at the cross Mourn in the blood that was lost For you and me Rejoice, He has risen I don't want...

    I spent years waiting for you to see That we were meant to be And you were tugging on the strings of humanity 'Cause you caused me to lock up my heart and throw away the key Waiting for you to see Waiting for you to come Waiting for waiting to be done But it never was, baby And NOW you ...

    You know you live in a small town when people back up down main street… And when streetlights and cross walks are unheard of. You know you live in a small town when you see people you know at every turn. When the hangout place for kids is Casey’s after school, and when you know every pers...

    Sometimes, I just have to look at someone and ask them....was that comment honestly necessary? Making fun of the Apostolic Church which I, myself, attend, and half the people in the room. I just have to look at that one person who's talking and shake my head. Does he not realize that when ...

    Don't you just love... Whoppers, laughing till your sides ache, Taylor Swift songs, and sunshine? Puppies and kitties, a giant game of kickball, a heart warming song, and the sound and smell of rain? Babies, The color pink, sunflowers, and the ocean? Soda, cheezits, a good ...

    I know who you are, but at the same time, I don't. For awhile you were on a sinking boat, now you're starting to float, but sometimes I think you're still sinking... Are you the boy with the golden smile who looks at me with those gorgeous eyes? Or are you still where you start...

    It's too bad I miss you, or who you used to be Too bad that I don't know you anymore. Too bad you've changed. Too bad that the days of Laughter, Sleepovers, Long letters to each other, inside jokes, and pictures are gone. Too bad we're not friends anymore. Too bad ...

    One of them wears her twin sister’s clothes and expects to get away with it, and dramatically tells farfetched ideas that make absolutely no sense whatsoever. She hates raisins. Her hugs and “I LOVE YOU’s” get me through tough days and her voice over the phone is one of the most comforting...

    "Ok, that's ridiculous. How retarted is that?" Up until a little while ago, this would seem like a normal statement for me to use. Seldom did I think about the meaning behind the crude usage of this word, and how it can hurt people and tear them apart all in a few syllables. ...

    She walks to school every day with a downcast face, bruises on her arms Her heart seems unfixable, with tiny scattered pieces and small, sharp-edged shards Her bruises go farther than the discoloration and splotchy skin Harsh words leave wounds that are impossible to mend Emotional and physical ...

    Oh...tis the bus. How do you describe it? Blast-from-the-past bus drivers? Freakish kids playing their DS's? The ones that burst your eardrums with their loud screams about nothing important? That's just the beginning. There's the smart alecy ones that spit when they talk. H...

    I sit on the bench for yet another game, tears welling up in my eyes as the same old people pant on the court, their usually perky, high ponytails floppy, as if they too are subdued. They beg the coaches for a rest with their eyes, and hack up a storm as they charge, defeated and dragging their fee...

    As I think about the loss today it makes my stomach curl, I cry dear God, why her? For she was only a little girl. The family greives with the rest of the town over this tragic loss I wonder why it happened this way, but God, you are the boss. You must have decided that it was her time And i...

    America. Streets paved with gold. Right? The perfect place to be. Right? Wrong. There is so much poverty in our country alone, it really does make me feel like my heart is shattered whenever I think about it. If there is this much hurt in America, this much poverty, this much pain, what must ...

    Screaming through my tears I lock my door Flop on my bed and drop my books on the floor The world seems oblivious to my pain Why do I have to go through the pain to gain? Salty tears mix with streaks of mascara Why did I ever date that liar? From that relatiionship I lost absolutely everything...

    So many people, myself included at times, think of Memorial day as just another holiday that they got off school or work. Sometimes it's hard to remember the reason we get the day off. It's hard to remember that each number in a statistic is not just a number, but a human life. Sometimes it's har...

    Some people have masks. They can be made out of paper, plastic, or other materials. Mine you ask? Mine is made out of foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow, and mascara. I walk from class to class, cowering, hoping no one can see past my caking makeup. As each bell rings, I contemplate the harsh w...
