What if grass is greener on the other side, Because it’s always raining there, Where the ones who never fail to give, Hardly have enough to spare, Where the people with the broadest smiles, Have pillows filled with tears, And the bravest ones you’ve ever known, Are crippled by their fears, It’s...

You Are You in the Moments When You’re Not Trying to Be. I met her in the shadows, On the sidelines, in between, Living in the spaces Where she could see but not be seen. And she taught me to find truth You must try watching from the wings, For what one does before the curtains rise Means...

You’ve got your stories pressed like flowers On notebook pages to be preserves, As though the right for you to share them Has been as yet undeserved. Or perhaps it’s something primal To simply be who you are now, Existing as what you’ve become Without the need to tell us how. I know...

“Promises” I promised to kiss her, A million times Before I died, 50 a day for the rest of our lives. And when I was gone, She could smile. Knowing there wasn’t a piece On her I missed -Atticus

By: Sierrah Smalls, Damani Piper, Shakoyah Brown, Keana DuBose, Keshawna Alderman, and Tage Dasrat Sometimes strength is accepting defeat Resurrecting your body from the dead Defeat is not an ending sentence The barren ground is just an opportunity for flowers to sprout You are forever bloomin...
