Biography of Shannon Thompson

I started expressing myself as a means to get over depression stemming from probably what is considered normal high school pressures and the search for my own identity and place in the world. I don't pretend to be any good, I like reading poetry and until recently didn't think I would ever write it. However, I have found it theraputic. After two of my poems, 'if do' and 'rain wind trees (three) ', were selected by my high school's literary magazine, I sought out better ways to put my feelings into words for the enjoyment of all. I'm interested in what you think, and what advice you could offer me.

Shannon Thompson's Works:

Published 'if do' and 'rain wind trees (three) ' in 'Premiere', my school's literary magazine. Updates

Dust Before Light

the air is thick with hope
but the dust clings to the lost
the debris is cleared for a new day
but was it worth the cost

a million times yes
outshone by a no
a thousand 'come here's
stopped by one 'go'
