I can relate to the day when I’m happy, bright and beautiful, full of life, of wonders, people walking down the street, birds singing, people laughing, kids playing. Everything is happy. I’m happy. In a bad day I can relate to the night. A dark cold rainy night. Empty streets, tired people, sleepy kids. I’m walking rain falling down. It’s a dark night or a bright day. I’m in a sunset right now are you in a day or in a night?
The High School Chronicles
I will be posting a series of poems I wrote throughout high school. I was fortunate enough to have teachers who inspired me to write and friends with amazing stories to tell. Not every story is a personal experience. I tried to see the world through someone else’s eyes. I don’t intend to pretend that this is great writing. I was just in 10th grade when I wrote most of them. I also have no intentions of making any corrections to them. I wrote what I felt and believed at that moment. I decided to post them on my blog after finding them hiding away in a very old binder. I figured I’d make my 16-year-old-self justice and share them with others who might appreciate them or even find comfort in their lines.
