When he was thirteen, he believed there was no better age, even though he found out later there was. He was a teenager, that was all that counted. His dad let him rifle hunt on his own for the first time, float the river without him, and even run a chainsaw by himself, but only if his mom couldn’t hear it. He could ride his four-wheeler were ever he wanted to in the mountains. The first time he done that he thought he was lost behind his own house, just because his dad wasn’t there, and with him he traveled the same road time and again without his father’s guidance. Thirteen, he found out, isn’t sixteen or seventeen. He couldn’t drive or go anywhere without someone that could, and even though he is sixteen going on seventeen, he still doesn’t have his license. So I don’t know why he is complaining about to me for.

“My Rambling Autobiography”

When I was eleven, I believed that Santa Clause might still be real. I only worried about silly things, such as what I was going to have to eat, or what game I was going to play next .I understood that I can’t always have the brighter things in life. But no matter what I believed that there was no such thing as a bad day. When I was eleven I believed that life was only, worth living through one little tiny step at a time.

When I was eleven, I knew it was alright to go to bed late knowing I had to get up early.

I endured then what seemed to be horrible things, but looking back now it was actually nothing.

When I was eleven everyone I encountered was best friend if they so much as said hello.

When I was eleven, I lived life to the fullest and was at times considered to be crazy. I got along with everyone in my family. I enjoyed family gatherings. I miss talking about what used to be.

I remember playing day after day in 101 degree weather. And all the times I helped my mom rock my newly born baby sister to sleep at night.

Looking back know, there was really never a bad side to the story of my childhood. It helps me a lot knowing that I can still remember everything about my childhood. But it also bothers me knowing that I maybe changed the wrong way. But I know in my heart that in everything I do I do with Jesus by my side. So as you can see I hopefully changed for the best after all. Maybe Someday I can look back on my life as a 15 year old teen instead of and 11 year old child and feel the same sense of joy…

Just Me, the Deer, and the Shot

Just Me, the Deer, and the Shot

It’s just me, the deer, and the shot

The deer may run

The wind may blow

The snow may be thick

But, I can still shoot

I’ve got five shells

No obstacles in my way

No snow in my scope

The deer haven’t saw me yet

No body scent blowing in the wind

It’s just me, the gun, and the shot

I slowly raise the gun

Flick the safety button off

Smell the warm, moist gunpowder


Running In The Dark

Is it always me

Who gets stuck in these

Situations I can’t find

Ammo or grenades monsters

Keep following and I

Can’t find my partner he’s

Probably doing better than

Me I think something brushed

My leg and I still have no

Ammo maybe this flash bang

Would work oh my gosh

It did legs move faster

Almost to the door the

Door slams shut behind

me and all I hear is


“Isn’t this one big family reunion?”


Why do I feel as if my nightmare has just begun?

“Just Me, My Heart, and a Dream”

It’s just me, my heart, and a dream

friends have their doubts,

Family dreams otherwise

They all try to talk me out of it

But I don’t acknowledge them

I keep on believing

No doubts

No changes

No regrets

My mind is set, and my heart is pure

Just me. my heart, and a dream

I take off running

I stumble

I fall

I asked you to go hunting

Because you were my papaw

I handed you your rifle,

But you just shook your head

I guess I just didn’t realize you weren’t able to go.

I ask if you wanted to ride the truck around the hills

You said, “Lets go”

Then I asked if it would be like this forever

You said, “No”

Then I started to cry

I didn’t want to lose you

But that day came anyway

And you just don’t know

How it would make me feel

Just to see you

One more time.

Depression by Cara Simpkins

Comes quickly, drags by.

That is pretty much the way it works out for me.

One minute you are happy and smiling.

 The next you are completely down and out.


Each moment that passes by,

Seems like you are desperate for a breath.

You cannot satisfy your hungry self.


It is all because of you O’ burdensome heartbreaker.

Woe you to have to see me this way.

So down and out.


These feelings I am having have a name.

The dreaded point in every teen’s life,
