Tiring, exciting
Running, shooting, scoring,
Excitable, cheering, joyful, fun

Peaceful Life

by Hitanshi

I sat down in a garden,
And thanked God for such a peaceful life,
For everything that is alive.
I saw a cuckoo in rejoice
With such a sweet voice,
And a butterfly sucking nectar
In a happy sector.
I plead to God to never end this life,
Having such a bright light.
I praised the beauty
For this wonderful treaty.
I looked widely at nature,
And saw the variant types of creatures.
I was amused to see the variant types.
Oh Cripes! I thank you for this place,
Having such a brilliant taste,
For life and for the beauty of everything that is alive.


by Aditi Vishwanath

My smallest of sorrows is healed by you,
and in my happiest of moments, you too are happy.

My stealthiest of secrets you keep as it is,
without spreading it as a matter to gossip.

What I like and what I don’t?
You’re the only one who knows them all,
it is because I trust you.

I tell everything to you, my sorrows, delights,
secrets, likes and dislikes,
just because I believe you,
and I, have faith in you.

Lost Kid

by Alexander Ortman

Why did you leave
Without even trying
You left us in the foster home
Bawling and crying

Why did you really leave
Got my heart on my sleeve
It’s getting really hard now
To try and believe

Now what do I do
I really thought the answer
Was going to be you

But you left us in the dirt
We weren’t trying to be hurt

One day you called me
you said you loved us
You’re lying
You left us all alone
Without even trying
Now everyone said
I shouldn’t be crying

Then grandma took care of us
we thought she was fine
But in the end her depression
was as bad as mine

Now mom
You lost us because of addiction
You would always do drugs
and drink in the kitchen
Now there was an eviction
And an order protection
I guess you learned your lesson

The demons in us all
Can you hear their call?
They keep putting us
Up against the wall

Now you have to leave
There’s no smile on my face
You really think I’m kidding
You’re just a disgrace
Because of your drinking
We end up losing our place

Then all these years
I thought it would be great
But stuck up in my heart
is a whole bunch of hate

I know that you’re my momma
You didn’t mean to harm her
But when you choked out my sister
all you got was karma

I know you didn’t try
Because your brain started to fry
But all I can do is sit there and cry

All you did was drink
What am I supposed to think
You built a bad ship
now it starts to sink

Now momma
Can you hear me calling?
I’m just a baby bawling
I wish you’d come back
But I think you are stalling

I wish you’d pay the time
To prove that you care
But you know you’d get locked up
So your not even there
Said you’ll come back
You won’t even dare
Now all I can do
is sit there and stare

You really leaving
wasn’t really right
And you beating us
Gave us such a fright
That’s why sometimes
I can’t sleep at night
Dreaming of you and grandma
Getting in a fight

Was that really right ?


Fateful Moments

by Daisy Tinsley

She lay on her bed,
Heartbroken and dead,
Crushed and smeared in a crumbling bed,
Sad and small she let her tears fall,
Fateful moments are something to be shared,
They take your soul,
Your heart too,
Why trust them, when they don’t trust you?
You run your moment, but then it ends,
Fateful moments why do you end?

Mystery in the Night

by Nashrah Tanvir

I slept in my bed fast asleep,
I never heard even a peep.
A break of silence occurred
And from darkness a shadow emerged.
Then the hand and the fingers,
“At the mid-night hour what is this behaviour?”
Is it a ghost or zombie?
Came to eat me.”
So I prayed, “Save me, Almighty.”
I trembled and covered my lap,
From the window I heard tap, tap, tap!
I went to the window and sighed with relief,
The mystery in the night was only a tree and its leaf.

Loneliness is a Friend

by Nashrah Tanvir

Loneliness and I are old good friends
Visiting my place daily,
In a dreamy way my existence wends,
Brings a wine container for my heart,
Vanquishing the world’s poison.
I climbed down the perilous peak,
Made me ink in my diary with affection,
Obliterating every “bleak”.
Loneliness made a deal
To heal imagination in every feel,
As an isolated star
Capable of lilting the sky.
Solitary is the best friend,
That wrongly seems the end.
Best are the feelings concealed,
Living in my own reel.

A Bird Without Wings

by Aditi Vishwanath

Ah! what a bliss, to have elegant wings,
with a lush of brightness, making it perfect for swings.

But pity on my wrenching soul, having no freedom to fly,
enclosed in a cage, dreaming,
an elated flight in the boundless sky.

It’s no more than a mere waste,
unable to flaunt the elegance,
unable to sing and dance merrily
in the open sky without surveillance.

Multiple attempts to get escaped
just proved to be futile.
My master asks me, “What do you want, oh li’l bird?
How can I say, My master? I want for nothing,
but just a little freedom, to fly like every other merry bird.

Time Travel

by Ben Courfield

If you were to go back in time
and change something
and then came back to the present
nothing would of happened
because the you in the past
would have already changed it.


by Ben Courfield

What are feelings?
Feelings are the things that make you happy,
Feelings are the things that make you sad
but feelings are also the things
that make you envious, greedy and angry
What are feelings?
