Toxic Life
 
I smell trash,

Burning rubber,

And gasoline,

It all fills my nose.

The huge stench,

It overwhelms me

The horror

The pollution

Something needs to change

Someone needs to take a step.

On the road

Who will it be?

Far Behind
 
 Moving Leaving the state

Leaving your friends

Leaving your school

Leaving your house

Leaving every memory Far behind

As you travel

On the road

As everything runs through your mind

Every secret

Every friendship

Every crush

You think of everything

That has happened to you

In your life

In this one small town

A tear falls from your eye

Wanting to go back

Wanting your friends back

Wanting everything to come back

Trying to get everything to

Come back

You can’t Because you’re

Moving

Leaving the state

Leaving your friends

Leaving your school

Leaving your house

Leaving every memory

Far behind

A MOTHER’S WISH

By Priya 7th Grade

Everyday, I look at
your face before I left
for a tiring day at work.
Sometimes I came home
a little bit early so I
could spend a few extra
minutes with you.

When you grew up
and left home to get a
good job, I wrote a letter
to you every day saying
how much I missed you,
but I never got a reply.

In the few times I talked
to you on the phone, you
always said, “I have no time
to visit soon, but I’ll try.”
You never came.

I waited and waited
to see not only you, but
your child running around,
and I waited and waited
to have a chance to go
and chase after him, but
you never came.

After my body began to
weaken, I sent one, last
letter that said, “I spent
my whole life wishing to
have just one glance at
you, only one, to know
that my little boy has
grown up.

I needed just one glance
to spend the rest of my
life in peace. I needed
just one glance to know
that my son was okay,
and happy.

I never lost hope
that some day you
would come and meet me.
I wish I could have come to
meet you, but my health was
so terrible that I didn’t have
the strength to come.

Son, by the time you read
this letter, I will no longer
be part of your busy world.
I waited and waited for you
until, finally, death knocked
At the door.

“I hope you have
A great life. You and your
darling family have my
blessings. Try not to miss
Me too much,”

These old bones perished
after seventy-four long
years of loneliness.
Looking down from above,
I spot my beloved son
regretting his action.
At least now I can,
finally, see him.

Congratulations, Priya!
