    • MARCUS I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR STORY! Its hilarious and I laughed out loud multiple times while reading it. I can tell you put in a lot of thought while writing this story because of all the song and appearance references (Sia and the mushroom). The beginning caught my eye because I love Beyonce, and then the story just kept getting even better.

    I WASN’T BORN HERE MAN

    BUT HERE I MOVED

    WHEN I FIRST STEPPED INSIDE THIS ENORMOUS HIGH SCHOOL

    EVERYONE SPEAKING WITH THEIR FRIENDS

    AND THERE WAS I , STANDING AND FEELING LONELY

    I WASN’T BORN HERE MAN

    BUT HER

    THE PLACE WHERE NO ONE WELCOMES YOU

    • Hey Branden, so my motivation to be here is my family and friends from Brazil. They always support me, they always stand by me , and they act like what friends and family are supposed to act… If I did not had them in my life, I’d probably be dead by now.
      What are your motivations?

    • Hi! Awesome poem. It was really deep and I could feel the emotion you put into it when you wrote it. I think a lot of people can relate to it in numerous ways. Great job.

    • Hey Marcus!

      Wow- bravo on your poem, it evoked so many strong emotions, and even more when you wrote that this is a true story about you. I just want to say that what your doing must be so difficult and that moving countries away from your family and friends is so courageous, great job, I’m cheering you on!

    • Dear Marcus,
      OH BOY do I know that feeling, just that roller coaster of emotions, longing to be surrounded by the people who truly care. I just want to say, keep smiling, don’t let anyone make you feel belittled, and keep looking, you’ll eventually find people who truly care. Although, I still have yet to find that group, but I have a few individuals who actually care. I speak from personal experience, the transition is probably one of the most difficult times, especially at such a difficult time, as if high school isn’t already a big enough transition. Keep fighting, work hard, and make the best with your time, because as I always tell myself. Only four more years.

    • Hello Marcus,

      I Find your post really interesting because this happened to you. I feel very sorry for you and hope you will be able to find people who like you. Your message feels very powerful and very personal to you. It really hits the reader in the gut.

      All the best

      Luca

    • Marcus, this hit really close to home. High school is a tough place to fit in and if you don’t make friends it can make you feel like you’re unworthy to be there. This poem really shows the reader the depth of emotion behind the writer and makes the reader feel something relatable, which is something I really enjoy in poems.

    • Marcus I think that your poem is very inspiring because I am going to a new school and I thought that this would happen to me but we don know. I just think that this was a great idea to write because you are talking about how it was and how u felt. Hope it goes great for u! PS I am not in high school I don know how u feel but because my school goes kindergarten to 8th grade so I think this is great. Try your best to find friends. Smile More!

    • Hey Marcus, this was a very emotional poem and I can relate with you. It’s really hard to make friends when you move into a new city, or a new country. I hope that you’re doing well and that you make new friends.

    The sun has risen up,

    Oh no is morning! I wish I could be asleep,

    I’d rather be counting sheep.

    Let’s give a huge ‘do not wake me up’ a thumbs up.

    Oh no is almost time for school

    But hey if you are

    When the sun comes up

    • Hey Marcus!

      Your poem is so great, I love it! It made me laugh, think, and also relate, with the narrator. I could see the care you took in rhyming the lines and making the ideas flow.

      –Naomi

    • Marcus,

      This poem is great! I love the rhyme scheme and the flow of the whole thing. It had a very bouncy rhythm that I enjoy. I can also relate very heavily to that struggle. I never ever want to get up but the anxiety of failing always gets to me!

      Great work,

      Natalya

    • Hi Marcus,

      Awesome poem! Being a high school student I found it very relatable.

    • this give me life and make me think about life

    Hey Maacs,

    Hello little Maacs, I know how hard it is to go through changes during your teenage times.

    I know you are only 14 years old and really scared to tell your parents about who you

    • Marcus,
      First of all, go you! Keep owning who you are, because, if you rock you, if you wear you proudly, and you own it, there will be people who love you for it. Granted, there will be people who hate you for it too, but that’s just a part of life. To be honest, I wish I had realized that sooner. I am bisexual, I try to own it, and I don’t really do or say or think how people want me to. For the longest time that scared me, and I’m just now starting to own it.

      So thank you for reaffirming the weirdness that is my brain. Sorry for getting really deep on what is for both of us a graded assignment.

    • I know how hard it is to accept yourself and then be brave enough. But hey, is totally fine to be deep down in this situation (…) grades aren’t necessary.
      And before anything, only YOU need to accept and love yourself, as soon as you get this main lesson done, everything will be easier when comes to making people see and accept you as who you are.
      Don’t forget , always be yourself and let your glitter come out 😀

      Marcus – Maacs

    • This was such a brave and amazing thing to do. Most people are so scared to let it be known that they don’t tell anyone. They just hold it in. Trust me, I know people in my family that have done it, but once you let it be known everything in life will be so much easier. You won’t be scared about how someone will feel about you anymore or how someone will treat you. If your family loves you for you, then they should have absolutely no problem accepting you for who you want to be. So good luck and congratulations for making this big decision that you did! It was the biggest, hardest step and you achieved it. I’m proud of you! Never be afraid to show who you truly are. Inside and Out.
