Friday by Grace Watson

Friday night is when the crowd
Roars with excitement
In the bleachers, Moms and
Dads cheer on their kids
Athletes face off on the fifty
Yard line.

Walden by Grace Watson

While Thoreau lived in a cabin by
A lake, he couldn’t
Live deliberately.
Day after day, he fell into a routine. And
Everyday, he risked his life in the wilderness. He
Never succeeded.

Miserable by Remington Hiles

Easily hurt
Eventually destroyed
