When writing a novel a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.
Ernest Hemingway

   I got a 39 on my Pre-Cal quiz,
my French teacher's dad past.
She broke down,
I stared at my math teacher downcast.
I sat at my desk,
hidden grade in hand.
   The movie had orphans,
I wonder if their kind is grand.
   I acted like a blind person,
I guided a blind mimic.
It was a lesson,
just a gimmick.
   My mom survived cancer,
another's came back.
Only ten years left,
before the attack.
   My brother is sick,
   My teacher's dad unsafe.
   The blind are in the dark,
   The inevitable waif.

The author's comments:

Everyone will become a orphan, everyone will lose, everyone will grieve.
