My life was based
on masking the truth,
not allowed to express feelings
buried throughout my youth.
By: Shannah Mackey
My family is broken and cannot be fixed.
I wonder if they love me or if I'm even missed.
Creating a small island of hope in a sea of ruin
Sparkling and bright on Delery Street
I've tried to hate you
for reasons I will try to explain.
It maybe too late now
but this I can no longer contain.
You've planted many flowers for us
that are now starting to grow.
Some of them I know by name
but others, I just don't know.
School's starting soon and I can't wait
I hope the bus isn't running late
Laugh Clown laugh,
that's what they want me to do.
I guess I'm doing something right
because this Clown made you laugh too.
So many mixed emotions
just want to scream and shout!
What needed to be said
just should've come out!
