Life is a boomerang. It's up to you whether this intimidates you or empowers you.

Gun from young hands take,

With a book, brush or violin replace,

Sanctity of school don’t forsake!!

The author's comments:

Weak gun laws and enforcement continue to cut short young lives, how long before this changes?

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

Powerful haiku, powerful social statement.
