  3. 3. sitting there in a corner It sucksthere he sat, be last for lab,looking at me to realize 7 hrs have gone bycovered with bruises, cuts studying for that chem exam,and wearing an angry face to see that friend surpasshe said: page 17 in half the time you“I am you and you are me” spent and to feel like you’re aThat’s just a little bit creepy failure.That’s not really me. I hope, but I don’t know. but it’s OKBecause there he sits, we try our bestsaying “I am you and you are sometimes it sucksme.” and sometimes we cheer upJust a little too creepy. maybe one day I won’t last for lab!
  4. 4. You never know what lingers in the dark. Tik tock, all you hear is the beatingWith the creaks, thumps, and of your own heart.whistles sweaty palms and racing it is hard to see beyond you.Thoughts,The unknown is frightening. What is going on?The uncertainty is terrifying. The unknown is frightening. The uncertainty is terrifying.Mixed signals, mixed emotionTaking words the wrong wayStubborn beliefs in righteousness andjustice Mixed feelings, mixedcausing world’s problems understandings Misrepresenting right and wrong. Clashing of opinions and thought Where to go now?
  5. 5. I fear alienationI don’t want to feel like I’m from an enemy nation.Where no matter what I’d do I’d be aloneAnd I’d be singing a lone toneMaybe it’s trite but if we stop we can see“Alone” is “all one”– we’re all our own nationsall alone togethershould we be isolat Do we need to feel isolated all alone, together? there once was a girl from orange county who appeared to always be frowny but she wasn’t mad This doesn’t sometimes she’s just sad rhyme… -_- and people a l seem terrifying There once was also a girl from the lone star state Who also seemed to have the same fate Then the two girls met And they had a great fate.
  6. 6. A common fear we all have But we all face in life Can you guess what it is?Sometimes I thinkwhen I’m walking through the hall It is that most basic fearor brushing my teeth A fear we fear in lifeor putting on my shoes: Though we it is never fulfilledWhat if something happens now? until we can no longer fear itAn earthquake– a crash–Going through lifeHappiness, stress, confusionUnaware of possible trageties … Damnspelling
  7. 7. I fear when someone won’t return.If my mom doesn’t come back home around 5 from work.Did something happen?Is she late because of an accident?If she’s dead,What will happen to me?What if it’s just car troubles?As a child I sometimes pressed a fingerto my mother’s wrist, to check ifto feel her warm pulse, against my finger tips watchtheovals of her nostrils slowly dilate as sheslept. the possibility of deathnever outside the realms of my imagination. As her chest rose and fell next to mine, I sta myeyes lifted to the ceiling. imagining all the possible deaths–
  8. 8. In the wide expanse of an empty room the walls closing in curtains wrapping around my body like gauze.paper, scattered on the tiles solitude– the deafening sound of my ownsilence.The silence keeps ringing and doesn’t stop.The silence extends far into the future.It goes beyond the grave and into the generations that come after me.The empty room disappears, but thesilence continues.
