I Have ChangedBy. Tyler Howard
From lying to being scared and shy I’ve changed
Growing up and learning it’s ok to cry I’ve changed
Was a little girl now I’m turning into a woman I’ve changed
I learned to do my best and try as hard as I can I’ve changed
All the pain and struggles I’ve I had I put it in the past I’ve changed
I try not to think about my brother and when I saw him last I’ve changed
I had things happen to me that I thought would never happen I’ve changed
I am not the same person that I use to be

Ever-ChangingBy. Bounty Davis

Poisoned looks hating the
Turn of your
Hair and your
Moods and your

Do Not Just Long For a ChangeBy. Bashyam Narayanan
Nothing is permanent
Except the change
Change is a necessary phenomenon
In an active system
Changelessness is deadly
Change is continuous
Steady and driven by a cause
Nature and extent of change
Nature and extent of cause
We all look for
And indeed long for a change
And we have specifications
Many a time
The occurring change is
Not the change we were
Looking or longing for
We turn excited or sad
Because of the change
Many a time we are
Unprepared for the change
Though we were longing for it
Often we find it difficult
To accommodate and
Accept the change
Longing for a change
But desiring itself not enough
We need to create such
Causes that will lead
To the change we look for
Many a time these causes
Are not totally under our control
So, it is well-advised
To be prepared for the
Deviations from your specifications
Then you will find yourself
In a position to accept
The change whole-heartedly
Long for a change,
Plan actions accordingly,
Execute and wait
Change has to come
But, again be prepared
To accept the change
Despite its falling short
Or exceeding your Specifications
Do Not Just Long For a Change-

I’m StuckBy. Nicole Renoso
Stuck in a world where everything has
Nothing is going my way anymore
New twists and turns have been made
on that road I thought I had in control
Nothing is the same
Friends and family say that they notice
a change in me
What change? I cannot say
Whatever happened to everyone
rooting and cheering me on?
Now everyone has turned around and
talked about me saying mean stuff
Now I’m desperately searching for a
way out of this world.
But the thing is I end running in circles
I had the map of a perfect world.
But someone stole it now
I want my life back and my map too.
But I can’t get it back now

A Rose in the MoonBy. Kayla Haggard
Amongst the midnight sky,
I stare at a rose as it dies.
Its pedals are torn and bruised,
such a precious thing to lose.
Yet, when I stare into the full moon,
I see that it will be daytime soon.
When I hear a girl's sorrowful cries,
I know that a new rose began to arise.
Those pedals are lush and red,
nowhere close to being dead.
And as I find her inside my heart,
I know that I am not falling apart.
I finally realize who I really am,
it definitely took some time but, damn.
It was all worth it in the end.

Clean of My EmptinessBy. Emily
Off to the emptiness
where I am widely invited.
I do hope loneliness
will consume my soul.
Away the hurt will go.
No more aches because
the dulling numbness,
will take away my feel.
Stretching long and far
is my path,
leading to a place
hoarding the lowest of lows.
One more companion
to guide my way.
I do hope
He doesn't shun my choice.
Crawling through the years,
through the vents,
I see the world as it is.
To people pay no attention
the reflection I see.
Only showing dirt,
hopelessness, and debris.
Alas they only see
what is shown to them.
No second glance
Warmth and comfort,
turn to foreign concepts.
Taking their place,
hurt and sorrow.
What will become
of my murky reflection,
Would it be easier,
to just accept?
Skip the pain
right to the killing.
Tear off the leftover shreds
of my feelings.
Plunge into darkness,
hopefully to resurface,
Clean of my emptiness.

Starting OverBy. Tatum
I’m trying to find something to base my life upon,
Something in this strange world that goes on and
As the years go by and time fades away,
What used to be "good days" are now filled with
Tomorrow comes, and then again, it goes,
And my ambition to become something more,
grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
The life I want now, gets closer each day.
All I've ever wanted was something to live for,
I don’t want to be this little person anymore.
I’ve been basing my life upon what others think,
I wish I could go back and redo everything, every
time an eye would blink.
I've fought to become who I am and what I want
I have to remind myself that one day, I will be free.
Free from the rules I followed as a child,
When everything was a game and life was so mild.
Now times have changed and I realize nothing is
And sometimes it seems like nobody even cares.
It’s like no one pays attention to what I feel is best
And what I think about the way some things
I understand now, that I’m pretty much on my
And I know a lot of what I can do will never be
All the time, I think about everything I can’t say,
what I have to keep in,
And by doing this, my thoughts only get more
complicated and deepen.
Soon I hope to find out who I am, and what I am
meant to become,
I want to know where I’m going, I don’t need to
be reminded of where I came from.

Letting Go and Holding OnBy. Martha Turner
Oh how I love life,
walking outside in spring and
and smelling the honeysuckle
floating on the warm breeze.
Couples walking hand and hand,
smiles of happiness from being in
owners walking their dogs,
kids laughing and playing,
birds chirping and singing all day
each and everyday the world
I get tired of it's confusion
tired of the pain.
I'm tired of the emptiness from
hearts I've parted from.
Tired of wishing for more but not
knowing which way to turn
and sometimes too scared to look
To let go completely of yesterday,
and grasp a hold on the hope of
A hope that if tomorrow gets here, it
won't be like yesterday.
Yesterday's holding on to the hope
of a lost love
yesterday's disappointments of the
same ol' routine
yesterday's wishing bills didn't exist
so there wouldn't be any living from
check to check.
Yesterday's empty dreams of a fairy
Wanting an end to all my struggling.
OH... holding onto the hope of
A tomorrow filled with pure
knowing that this direction on the
path is the one and only way...
A tomorrow filled with the
reassurance that your headed for
A tomorrow with a love that was
sent to you from the heaven above
that will only grow
deeper and deeper as time goes by to
A tomorrow that will complete and
fulfill yesterdays wants and dreams.
A tomorrow that will conquer all my
hardships and troubles.
I grasp the thought of what
wonderfulness tomorrow could

Who Am I?By. Miranda
Who am I?
what is the real reason to why I cry?
I'm having trouble opening up
My mind is at a loss
I don't move so I'm getting covered in moss
But it doesn't grow the right way
I thought it was supposed to show you the way
I just want to get home
Where I can be alone
I'm sick of feeling closed in
I'm not an animal you can put in a pin
I need to be free
So I can see all I can see
I don't want to be locked up
I want to come to my senses
I remember everything he mentions
Yet I don't know me
That's who I can't see
It seems so simple
But that can't be
'Cause if is was so
I'd know where to go
I don't know who to go to
I need to talk it through
But they can't know me
And they can't see
I can't find them
How can this be

ChangeBy. Brenda Poole
Seasons come and go
Sceneries change over time
Nothing stays the same
Should we be revised?
Of course, it's necessary
All are due for change
Without change there's no
Future to look forward to

Change can make us cry
Change can also make us laugh
Sometimes change is death
Sometimes change is life
Nothing ever changes change
Change is always change!
