Running

Poem By Breanna Verkon

Following the path through the wet trees that are glistening
The wind begins to blow, so I stop myself and im listening
They tell me to slow down, that im moving too fast
I looked back at all I had blown past
Now my future is in my lap
And im hesitant to unwrap
What very well could be a trap
So i run back to the meadow
Where the dreamy river flows
I look at my reflection and it glows
But the clouds cover the sun
So again, I start to run

Highschool Friendships

High school friendships rarely last
Eventually school becomes a blurry past
As we get caught up in our lives
Forget to be good husbands and wives

Great Father

Other than the times you have hit me
Other than making me feel like a nuisance
Other than calling me countless names
Other than treating me like a know nothing

Free From My Father

I have happiness in me
Soon I will be free
You will no longer restrict me
You will no longer control me

Moving Out

At the grocery store my mom and me
I tell her when Im seventeen Im free
She tells me its a mistake
And her heart breaks

Hidden Under My Smile

Hidden under the smile on my face
There is a sad and lonely place
Where I dream of loves grace
And the end of this race

Athlete

He punches the bag like its full of air
He doesn't stop, he doesn't dare
He shakes his hand, its only fair
He pushes the instructor, eyes in a glare
