Because they're only sheep and
I'm just counting them...

Clogging up all our spare
Time and making us want to
Cry 'cause it's SO HARD...

 and paper,

I write,
 I scribble.
I read,
 and I repeat.

Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Cheesecake Lover
Who is she?
She is a seventh grader
Plays softball
Wears glasses
She lives and loves cheesecake
Chaddar cheese
Mac n' cheese
Who is she?...

Premium Member Feed Sack Dresses
A combination of Haiku and Kyoka

designer originals
from feed sacks
after the chickens were fed

her artist's touch
honed with the aid
of her foot movement
on the treadle machine

The system is slowly coming 'round,
To a concept perfectly profound:
Dyslexicans are most insightful;
They're absolutely quite delightful.
'Tis wrong to dump them in Lost & Found....

Premium Member Why Should I Know Multiplication

When will I need
Why waste my day on it?

When will I need 
This long division?
Why are we doing this?

I do not need 
Spelling or writing
That’s your job, isn’t it?

A lot can happen in a minute. A sudden epiphany, A revelation. Opening doors, A realization. Fresh starts, Beating hearts. Good luck, Tearing apart. A lot can happen in a minute.

Paper Clips
Most people are easily bent out of shape
Like Paperclips
Because they can't hold it together
Like Paperclips
My words are weapons so I lock & load
My Paper Clips
I bet your two cents is worth less 
Than a Paperclip

by Brooke Bowers

They say I 
Can handle it,

They say I'm

They want me 
To act my age,

When they don't

The how much
Pressure can one take,

Before they snap
with no help around....

Mighty behind desk and beak,
teaching chemistry earrings.
Glass rims speak of test--
new eyes flame begins.

Some books peek with hearings,
some hide their giggle as best,
while others lean out to confess
the test they'd like to take....

Number Six
My first friends
Didn’t even know
My name.
They called me
Number six
Because that was
My PE number.
On the day I left
I gave them my
New address
But nobody mailed me.
I made the mistake of
Writing my name
Instead of
Number six.

innocent child
on a homeless street
with abandonment
and disparity
is found guilty…
to life’s fear
that today
will become
and tomorrow’s
will become next 
what the hell…

The In Between

Oh, Middle School child
you “in between”
shackled to the horde
like a cartridge to a gun,
to trifle, loiter in halls,
and elicit mordacious slurs to
wizened eyed mentors.

Five Years
The opening day I remember clearly.
The last, I will treasure dearly. 
My last year was the worst
I wish I could travel to the past.
The happy faces from the first,
To the sobbing tears of the last.
Today, I opened the door to the future
And close the door to the past!

Middle School Graduation 2014
This is my time to shine,
To live a life that is mine.
This is my time to glow,
And let my true feelings show.
This is my time to cry,
To laugh, and to sigh. 
This is my time, 
And only mine.
I won't let it pass me by,
Like a fading star in the midnight sky.
This is my time....

Lets hear it part 2
Had a best friend in middle school
We were two peas in the pod
Known each other for years
It all was a lie
Just the surface
It hurted
I am better and wiser now
All grown
No longer talking behind anyones back
We all grown
Glad the story unfolded 
Happier now 
No time for fake ness
Trying to live my success story with my family...

I look in the mirror and all I see
Is a woman I hate to be.

A beautiful face; an ugly body.

Elementry school,
They all thought I was the plague.

Middle school,
They all hated me.

High school, 
They made fun of me.

They considered me a nobody.

I look around at smiling faces,

No one knows
The smile on my face is nothing but blank....

My Ambition
Sitting in class bored out of my mind, If I give up, I'll be left behind. I just don't 'cause that goes to show, I have many amitious goals. Maybe one day I'll be the president, Or take care of unable residents. Maybe one day I'll open my own business, Or find the cure to a rare sickness. Who knows what I'll really be, But anyways, want some tea?

The bright blue sky
Pokka dotted herself
with cotton field clouds;

Below, beautiful green leaves
of proud standing trees
complimented the scene.

Then the news flash came:
“School bombed! Students killed!”
“Suspect escapes!”

As if on cue,
white clouds darkened;
sky tears slowly fell;

Today, it seems as if schools
are daily becoming
designated killing fields.

Premium Member Middle School Transition Day
Been to visit the middle school
Not ready to let our babies go there
First of all, they are like lambs
Innocent for the most part

But now that they have seen
The fantastically “fly” cheerleaders
Gyrating like pole dancers,
They are even more frightened.

Not the girls, of course 
As they are 12 going on 21.
I am talking about my boys,
Who sat like codfish, watching in rapt wonder.
