ďLifeĒ


Life is like a clock
Where time is always ticking
Life is like a book
Where a new year is a new chapter
Life is like a jungle
Where vines are sometimes tangled
Life is like a highway
You choose which direction to go
Life is a struggle
That you have to fight
Life is like a rollercoaster
Youíre either screaming with fear or with joy
Life is like a game of Jenga
You pull out the wrong piece and the whole thing falls
Life is like a mirror
It reflects on what you do
Life is like a mirror
It reflects on what you do
Life is like returning a pair of shoes
that didnít fit
NO REFUNDS.

ďApostrophe to the PastĒ

You are a book,
with no back cover.
Miscellaneous stories that are all connected.

Some days I spend too much time reading you.
I escape the real world and live in you.
Perfectly paced, yet painfully present.
Your descriptive texts are a work of art.

Not because your story is flawless
Youíre stitched with flaws.
But each flaw is a lesson.
And each lesson is worth learning.

However I canít spend too much time reading.
My head in books will blind me from the real world.
The real world isnít written on paper.
Itís literature you experience with all of your senses.

As I continue to write all over you,
The mysterious romantic comical tragedy you are.
I canít help but hope youíll be worth reading.
Regardless, no matter how many people have read you,
youíll always be the greatest teacher Iíll ever have.

 

A special thank you to our Judge,
Dr. Lindamichellebaron, our Young Adult Poets of Uniondale and their teachers for making this annual event a success.
