You will come upon a hill

Where it’s as hush as the still night

This is the place where im from

beyond the mountains are adventurous trails you can walk or ride on for hours

Its a place where everyone knows one another

The trees tower over the neighborhood surrounding it, giving it shade on the bright, sunny days

Its a place where all the kids go out and play

Its Four Seasons, my neighborhood, my home

It’s where I belong.

Inside Every Celebrity Is a Mechainzed Weapon

Pounding chest

Starry eyes

The fear inside eating away

At every shred of humanity

And every once of will

Fear is the plague

That feeds and grows

Fear is the consumer of all

The eater of peace

The eater of worlds

Fear is always there

It lurks and waits

And strikes down the weak and fearful

Fear is the thought that eats away

At everything and all

Fear is a disease

Fear is a threat

Fear is Fear

Dear Math, Solve Your Own Problems

Every year it gets harder,

can’t understand a thing.

I could tell you about Newton’s laws,

talk about wars or the Holocaust for days.

I could write an essay with perfect grammar and sentence structure.

But don’t ask me to find the value of x, the circumference of a circle, or the cosine of 32

No matter how hard I try,

I just can’t seem to figure it out.

Goodbye for Now, but Not Forever

Posted: October 10, 2012 by antoniahill15 in AntoniaH

We’ve been together since we were little kids

we’ve played softball since we were miney miners

now after all that time we’ve grown up

sprouted up like weeds in the garden

and after four long years in high school they are leaving

time has gone by so fast, I just can’t believe it

& a little after graduation, it will be time

Time to say goodbye

not forever, just for a while

I know we will keep in touch, so that makes me smile. ­čÖé

Fear Becoming Reality

Posted: October 10, 2012 by alisonadkins in AllisonA

I’ve never known fear before,
not until May 4, 2010, when my world
came crashing down.
The fear of losing my mom,
the most amazing woman in my life,
was set in my mind.
All my family and friends gathered
at the hospital.
All wanting to hear the news.
Did she make it? Was she going to be okay?
The look on my aunts face said it all.
The fear of losing my mom
had just become

Now that I’ve grown and moved away, I try to┬áremember…

the house in Daytona, the ways I would light up when I saw his face,

Building sand castles at the beach and fishing in lakes.

The long drive back to West Virginia and the fun we had playing car games.

But I can’t seem to forget about going months without him and the day he left for good.

I guess he could come back now and try to repair the damage he’s done,

But it will never be the same.

That Hollar

Posted: October 10, 2012 by alisonadkins in AllisonA

It’s a small hollar
that runs beside my house.
I played there every summer
with my cousins, aunts, and uncles.
We looked for salamanders all day
until our bucket was full.
That hollar is where I spent most of my childhood days,
but looking back on it now,
the hollar that I enjoyed so much as a kid,
is now just a quiet little stream.
