falling fast through the sky
you were dancing way up high
and now you're on the ground
your thoughts lost in the sound
of someone crying out
and you hear them shout
why is life so broken
I'm losing hope in hoping
holding on to what's left
Yells for no reason
Gives way too much homework, ugh
Her class is up next...
Far away is something I long to see,
Someone I long to be.
Their kindness is seen through every action,
Every word is a chain reaction.
It’s truth draws people in,
And makes them speak out from within.
More people will stand up,
They will work together...
What does it mean to be
Is it simply to embody ideas
Or is it something bigger
To completely understand the truth
What does it mean to live
Can you simply breathe in and out
Or does it involve hurt, and loss, but beauty
Lifestyle, an original poem by GL reader Jael G.
Black clothes, plaid skirts
Pout your lips
Make it work.
Strobe light, colored hair
Bright pink streaks
That make you stare.
Drums that shake you to the core
Crowd is screaming, "More! More!"
Boys in tight pants grace the stage
Hey darlings! An anonymous GL reader wrote this inspiring poem called "Simply Being Me." Take a peek and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Others call me odd,
Stark in contrast to the sea.
But I see myself...
This original poem by GL reader Steph is seriously on point! See for yourself.
There's a ringing in my head,
I'm as tired as can be,
I trudge out of bed,
Oh, what it's like to be me.
Heading to the closet,
I Am So Lucky
Her face stares out at me,
small, tired, pale.
The bed she lies in
supports her slight weight,
the yellowed sheets covering her.
This girl is dying of cancer.
I am here to bring her joy,
to make her smile,
to take her mind off
