Favorite Quote:
"Now is not forever."

Paper blank,
Stares at me.
A title-
Creativity craving.

I wonder, could this be my outlet of feeling and emotion?
Confusion swirling around,
Lost in stress and profound language.
At age, soon to be fifteen,
I struggle with what every girl does.
boyfriends, parents, siblings-
acne, homework, anorexia.
No day where I cry without reason,
I hate the reason.

It's not simple anymore- Half adult and child
Living like I know, but I don't. I don't know.
They say he has mental health problems.
So innocent and too.
Boy, if I knew all the answers, I would tell.
I would tell you and momma;
Tell the whole world.
I could set life straight again.
That would be nice.
Some peace-

The author's comments:
In a time of struggle and pain, I turned to poetry. I used the structure of the Langston Hughes poem, "Theme for English B." My overall message is about struggle, just as Hughes did, but my struggles are so different from his. I hope other teenage girls can relate.
