ELEMENTARY SCHOOL The American Flag

Friday, April 27, 2018 by The Press in Focus

Stars and stripes are more than a pattern

They show that we are free

These make up the most valuable symbol

That will ever be

We should honor and respect it

Each and every day

So we can wake up

Free in every way

This is more than a piece of fabric

It is honored each day and week

So we can be here

To learn and be free to speak

What our flag means to me

Is more than you would expect

It is a symbol of freedom

For all that fought to protect

Like the many people

Who died to let us be free

HIGH SCHOOL

On Turning Into a Sixth Grader

The whole idea of it makes me feel

as if I’m becoming a Celtic warrior,

valiant in the heart and enlightened in the mind

as a new surge of cognizance sweeps over me—

my slender bones serving as battle armor,

my tenacious attitude working as a compass for the extensive journey ahead,

my glaring smile acting as a means of persuasion for you to overlook my mischievous deeds.

You swear it is too early to be reflecting on the past,

but that is because you have forgotten

A Home and A House

Friday, April 27, 2018 by The Press in Focus

We ran around the house

with the worry

of banging our knees.

Saturday morning sunlight poured in.

The light tickled and danced,

on the top of our noses.

The laughs and cheers of my family filled the cracks within our home. Our favorite time to be alone was at night.

We spent hours playing with the door stopper and wondering

where the vibrations led.

My lungs were covered in weeks worth of dust. My cough was crunchy and deep.

Chipped paint and dry memories

filled the now empty halls.

Fae Queen

Friday, April 27, 2018 by The Press in Focus

Her hair falls like waves across her shoulders,

The long, dark ringlets like a raven’s wing.

She makes all mortal hearts to smolder;

It is of her that our minstrels sing.

Tall she is, and fair, like the morning.

Slender is her waist wrapped in a belt of gold.

All ye mortals heed my warning:

Look not upon the maiden strong and bold,

Or your heart will forever be taken

By the Faerie Queen of old.

Her tale has oft been told.

Her eyes are clear and watery blue.

Her dress is of the same color, too.

MIDDLE SCHOOL Waffles

Friday, April 27, 2018 by The Press in Focus

You remind me of

Sunday morning waffles.

I could always count on

You being at the table steaming over

A book, as the steam

Funneled out the open kitchen window.

You always looked golden brown on the outside,

Even if you were still soggy in the middle.

You were as bright as orange juice in

The glass next to me, but you could

Shatter as easily as the glass when you hit the floor.

You could be as sweet as maple syrup

Or as bitter as strawberries.

Even though you couldn’t eat whipped cream,
