Where I’m From
By Hannah Abel
I’m from a moms who’s far away
From a dad who lives with his fiancé
I’m from a life that is hard but still I still smile
From so many places and I finally settled down
I’m from a life where I have 6 siblings and get to see none
From hanging with friends and laughing, to going home and crying,
I’m from a place where my friends are my life
Where my family tries to take me over
I’m from a broken family, friends who help, people who start drama,
And a world where I think I don’t belong a lot of times
From a place where my brothers, sisters,
Baby cousin, and parents are my world
Where life is harder than I thought
I’m from a place where boys come and go
Where my heart’s been broken in many pieces
And, this is only part of where I’m from.
The Sunlight Beams
By 7 Burton
The sunlight beams on my face in the early morning
The warmth awakens me, and I feel as bright as the sun.
It’s a new day, a new chapter,
I have to write a new beginning
I hold before me a day to correct all that I have done wrong
A day in which I embrace
The things I never did,
A day which I call new.
I feel joy as I gaze out of my window,
At the freshly bloomed flowers, the clear blue lake,
And the smiles of children both young and old.
A new day that is given to you is a gift
I was once told.
But I never appreciated those words
Because my mind was too bold.
It’s a new season, a new start for
All of the things I treasure
Most within my heart.
