EDUCATION IS LIKE PEACE
By Jailene Rodriquez
Refreshing your memories
Like seeing friends like family.
Sun rising with your friends and family
Violence is wrong, peace is right.
Education is to bring you together with your friends.
Mothers fighting for your education
Education is what brings you together
Now hear ends the lesson.
By Jenna Tavarez
Love blows sprinkles of water on the rocky shore of my heart
and transforms into my soul
screaming a message that cannot be understood.
Love is a journey that will carry you into seas of despair
with eerie subjects
You cannot figure out why
but it attracts you into the mist of distress that turns you yellow.
WATER TO EARTH
By Zion Truss
Water to Earth
The earth’s wind sends waves
Like wild life moving swiftly through the forest
Hearing only yourself and the environment around you
Water crashing over you like the deep shadows of the jungle
Sending the cold wetness of the water like the chill air of the night
Water to Earth
LOVE VS. HATE
By Kassandra Izquierdo
My mother is like a wave of darkness upon me
My grandmother is like the prettiest sunset that the world has ever seen
Birth and death are like stillness within me
Darkness can never be light
Like the drugs that hit my mother
Like a wave of destruction
And she left her kids that love her still
In the stillness
And the sadness
With the violence
Like the hate that compared me and my mother
Salt water coming out of your eyes saying…
Can you love me…what have I ever done to you?
You never gave me happiness or love!
I always gave you love and I will always give you love!
I will always give it back to you!
