Friendship is a garden for my friends and I,
And we’ve sworn that the plants would never die.
The laughs we shared as we gave it care
Were as bright and lively as the flowers there.
(1st place winner of Texas Career Association Poetry Contest 2010)
When I am done with school,
I am turning right back around
This is who we are
A Movement, a cause
The People who will
Put your perceptions to pause
Sleep soundly, dear
And do not dream
The nightmares I dream
Your smile is another sun;
Listen now, it’s just that pretty.
It could power a whole house,
No, it could power a whole city.
Why does it feel like we’re drifting
Apart more and more each day?
The smiles we trade have started to fade,
And my heart needs you more each day.
When the drone of the school day
Became a terrible bore,
The best of friends would hang out
For a moment under the old sycamore.
Turn away now! This is the me
I never wanted you to see.
My true colors start to show;
The ones I never wanted you to know.
Her needles warned you to stay away
But you crossed the boundary anyway
You held her tight until you bled
You longed to place a kiss on her forehead
In this awkward evening hour
The music flows in beat with my heart
As I express the ache of being apart.
My keyboard's on battery power;
