    Hello Ariana,

    I can totally relate myself with the stress that college tuition can be, specially for us, seniors.
    This is a major issue and a stress cause for us, and that can affect our studies or even our majors…
    I am glad that we have some people working on it, in order to even reduce or cut it off.

    BUT HERE I MOVED

    AND THERE WAS I , STANDING AND FEELING LONELY

    BUT HER

      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

      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.

    Hello Matthew,

    This poem is so adorable OMG. Plus, hugs are really essential for all humans, because it gives us a feeling of safety and warmth that no other affection gesture can do!
    Love it.

    What a marvelous and very figurative poem! Love it, very nice and cute, specially the last part of it 🙂

    Let’s be honest, all the conflicts within our society has its downs and ups.

  • Hello Juray,

    Routine sucks in my opinion. I think we, as young adults or whatever we may be, we deserve to break this routine in order to create memorable moments in our lives. I can not stay doing the same thing over and over and over, I love innovations and surprises throughout my day. By the way, I wake up at 6, take a shower, then I nap until…[Read more]

  • Heeeeeey Tala,

    This one is my favorite poem from you haha! I think we are all in the same situation with our parents, because hey, college is right across the road for us , seniors, and we all know how painful and difficult for our parents is to let their kid go out and explore the world.

    WIsh you the best.

    xoxo 😀

    • 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.

    I strongly agree that yes, animals can and will always express emotions. After all they all have a heart and a psychological part just like we do, the only different is that , we can communicate among us and we are only able to understand ourselves. Who knows if in the future we will be able to read the animals’ emotions…[Read more]

    I strongly agree that what has happened back in our childhood affects our confidence levels as other relevant things. Plus I agree that I have the need to look good to feel good, since I care about how I will appear to the others.

    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

    • Roan replied 2 months ago

      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.

      Roan

    • 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.
