    They try to give math a happier spin
    “How many times can this number go in?”
    As if you are part of some numerical clique
    Because you can find a square root extra quick.
    It’s always “add up”, “times up”, “divide up”
    That keeps me looking down, counting down, feeling…yup,
    I can’t find the angle for a celebration
    When numbers and math are in the equation!!!

    A Walk in the Woods
    Ian Michael
    Eighth Grade – Home School
    I walk along a stone path.
    Watching as a bird fly’s by.
    Going to its little calf’s.
    I can hear there cry’s.
    As I walk I see the lake move.
    Rippling very quietly.
    As if to a grove.
    I walk along tirelessly.
    I see a rabbit bonce by.
    As fast as a bolt.
    With joy in its eye
    to see its new colt
    A squirrel runs up a tree
    into a hole.
    Going back to its family.
    all this I saw on my stroll.

    Flames Soul
    By: Sade
    10th Grade Rain High School
    The flame was mesmerizing as it repeatedly grew and got smaller and dimmed.
    The candle went out, leaving behind coldness and darkness.
    As if the flame represented a person’s life.
    The flames grows, the person grows mentally and physically.
    The flame gets smaller, the person ultimately feels smaller because adversities in life.
    The flame dims, which represents a person letting these adversities over power them; consuming their life.
    This cycle repeats.
    Then the flame goes out, representing death.
    Reality Appears
    By: Kaitlynn
    10th Grade Rain High School
    Slowly, creeping, waiting.
    The suspense wall all around.
    No one made a noise.
    Not even one little sound.
    But all around us, slowly creeping near.
    Just the very thought, could bring someone to tears.
    No way to know, the things, the things that rest in store.
    The weight of it standing, at your very front door.
    The circumstances change, in one short year.
    Reality, reality, will slowly appear.
    Blue Decade
    By: Megan
    11th Grade Rain High School
    Those memories they held,
    Warped into another age.
    Wrapped into a blue cloth, to a time in which music played
    Fingers that glided across the keys,
    To a beat that controlled the world.
    Feet tapped on the floor, making the ground shake
    Fingers snapped that sent vibrations through the air.
    They walked to this beat, even though the world slowly fell into despair
    Staying close to the blue cloth that could have brought them back.
    Now back to their own time, they listen for the beat that had previously ruled the world.
    No longer hearing it, due to the sounds from the outside world.
    They sigh and listen longer, knowing that there’s something there…
    Now hearing the sounds that they had previously heard.
    The dripping of the pipes that brought melodies with every drop,
    The wind that skips and breaks through the walls.
    They now know the truth,
    That the melody is still there, back into the hearts of those who know it.
    Now the beat continues, wrapping the world again with the blue cloth in once did.

    The little girl held out a glowing heart. “Take it you need it more than I do. She said
    The heart smith burst out into tears and cried out “That’s the most beautiful thing anyone has ever done.”

    She had me, she kept me
    Warm and Safe
    She even put me in line
    When I was out of place
    But still my mother’s Child I am
    She loves me so much
    But it’s sad to say I have to grow up
    A little birdy she helped fly
    Flying all the way to the sky
    A greatful mother she is
    Doing everything she can in her will
    Looking and watching over me for a while
    But I am still ………………my mother’s child

    Days and Days away
    From my birthday,
    Will it ever come?
    Or will it ever stay.
    I will be turning Foxteen
    On that day
    but why?
    Why is it so far away?
    Everyone is coming,
    That’s all I can say.
    We’re going to line up,
    And have a big race.
    But I can’t wait
    Because …
    We’re 3 days before my Birth-date.
    Next a second day.
    Now we’re 1 day before my birth-date.
    I tried that night to go to sleep
    Like I rarely.
    But I ate my food and rushed to bed early.
    Foxteen! Foxteen!
    I’m finally there
    Family, Friends Everywhere!
    Gifts on the table,
    Just for me.
    Can’t wait to open them
    to let everyone see.
    The best day that’s what I mean.
    But the really best day is when I turn
    Foxteen.
    Representing the World
    Frederick Hall
    Pillans Middle School – Grade 6
    What inspired me to draw this picture is the world. The two birds I drew represent the sun and the moon light and dark, life and death. The reason I drew both is that one can’t live without another or it would be chaos. The egg represents the fate of the world. It has to be ????? or it might go haywire. It might be able to turn to light, but nothing good lasts forever. The waves represent the two different forces classing and the darkness is losing the battle. As you can see one of the birds is a bird of paradise, the other is a woodpecker. In the picture, the woodpecker is getting pushed back. The bird of paradise is the light in the world. There is more light than there has ever been and it is thriving, but it wasn’t always like this. The woodpecker, which is darkness, once thrived. There is still some left. There will always be darkness; it will again someday, but today there is light, hope, construction, and love.
