I'm a 14-year-old starting high school. I've always loved reading and I started writing a couple years ago when I felt I read everything that caught my eye.

Why I Write

PROMPT: Why I Write

I started to write because I couldn't find anymore books to satisfy my reading needs. I write because I like to give myself another life. I write to figure myself out. I write to give others pleasure. I write so I can have an escape from the world that I live in. I write as an act of defiance. I write to make sense of things. I write in hopes of making a change one day.

Mama


 

Some days, like today

and yesterday and probably

tomorrow-all my missing gets jumbled up inside of me.

 

You know honeysuckle talc powder?

Mama used to smell like that. She told me

honeysuckle’s really a flower but all I know

is the powder that smells like Mama.

Sometimes when I miss her real bad

I go to the store and ask if they have it.

They say

Yes we do have it.

so I ask

Can I smell...

Where were you? I was hurting

PROMPT: Where Were You?

Where were you?

When I was alone

Afraid

Yes very afraid

Crying, crying

Feels like dying

 

Where were you?

Lying on the cold, unforgiving ground

Pain

So much pain

Shaking, shaking

Think I'm breaking

 

Where were you?

He comes out

Fearful

I'm so fearful

Too late, too late

Alas, you're too late
