HIDDEN

by Greta Rose (13)

Smiling faces

Closed doors

Welcoming words

Hidden meanings

We are the hidden

We are the closed

Pushed away

Ignored

Unrecognized

Forced to ignore love

Forced to hide it away

Choose to live a life alone

Avoid the messages of hate

Broken bones

Bleeding veins

Bruised limbs

Accident?

Terrified to step

Onto the icy river

Will I be next?

Will I fall?

Tear stained pillows

Suffocated hearts

Pleas for change

Heads turned away

Eyes on the floor

Case closed

Diversity

Love

Happiness

Equality

Becomes

Fear

Hate

Broken

Unwanted

Will you take a stand?

The Cat

The phantom of the night with emerald eyes twinkling in the head light

sees a mouse,

pounces,

caught.

By Michael Bull (14)

 The lord of the night flies and weaves in an out across the midnight sky

The lord of the night shrieks and screams across the midnight sky

The lord of the night listens and hears.

The lord of the night lands up-side-down on a tree as the first ray of sun light hits him.

The lord of the night screeches his last screech and goes to sleep until the next night…
