The Final Frontier
by Gabe Gracza
The final frontier
The high heavens
Where the sun shines
and planets spin
Bright blinding light
Alone. Left to die
a cold death in
the deep of space.
The sun on your face.
The earth at your back.
Love Like Wind
by Shaylin Kartes
It flows through the air
impossible to see.
Noticeable only by watching the people affected by it.
It comes softly, silently
then reaches through the Earth
Loud and strong
taking away all of the dead leaves and broken sticks
leaving behind something that is completely whole.
It cools you down when you’re hot
leaves you feeling breathless and excited
begins as a calm, becomes a wild storm
the settles to a peaceful, quiet joy.
Hope of Light
The light of hope shines through the dark
like a lantern through the night.
Its light in a heart, for its not to
fear the dark.
Its light shines through the eye
so all may see.
Its light illuminates one’s path
to one’s destiny.
How Relaxation is like Rain
by Ryden Jacobson
It can make you feel good.
Makes you not want anything else in your life.
Makes you want to enjoy every breath.
We need it once or twice a week.
Courage is Like Fire
by Riley Butler
Its hard to start without the proper tool.
It can be suppressed.
It can be built up over time.
It can be nothing but embers.
It can be a life taker.
Most importantly a tool of change.
Things I Didn’t Know I Loved
by Geofu R.
I didn’t know that I loved sand.
The way it crumbles and gives
way under my feet, feeling like
soft sandpaper caressing my toes.
I didn’t know I loved fear,
the way it makes me heart drop
or race. Always freezing my hair
on end, yet making me
yearn for more.
I didn’t know I loved laughing,
the way it tickles me and makes
my jolly, the way it makes me
sore, but making me
love that special sore
that I’m always wanting more of.
