Feelings wont come out. Its like a padlock in me without a key.
Emotions spills out all over the dar light. Theirs grief, gloominess and misery.
Tragic swirls around in circles.
All thoughts splash away. Memories thrown behind, some remain.
Autumn leaves fall down and scatter i try to walk the heart breaking experience off; but it stays. It feels as if family has been stolen. Until the key is found. The padlock unseals and my life is a new born chicken. I have found the way to to glory. It is pure, unlocked. I am in a different world.
I see my grandparents in this golden world. Heaven.
Friendship is being there Friendship is of the heart Friendship is a feast Friendship is trying to understand a mole Luke, Grade 6 Salamandastron, Brian Jacque

Rapunzel’s Rap Rapunzel was a girl with hair of gold Trapped in a tower in days of old She wasn’t allowed outside to play And her golden hair grew longer each day Grew longer and longer and longer each day. The witch who locked her up was mean With a pointed nose and a face of green Mean mean meaner than the queen of mean. - Sonja Dunn
