The Other World

There once was a girl named Alassa
who died protecting her love
this story would be tragic
if not for the magic
that was left for her from above

Soon after her death she realized
the world she knew had disappeared
but she was greeted by faces
and many embraces
from people who just suddenly appeared

She was told that this was the afterlife
a place where time stood still
everyone came here
no matter the year
and did whatever they wanted at will

Alassa realized that her hands were glowing
and asked what that was about
“Once the one you adore
comes here through the door
the glow will lead you to him and fade out”  

So she waited for the love of her life
and spent her time traveling
it was very captivating
and quite fascinating
As this world secrets were unraveling

First Day Of School...At Home

It's a first for me. 
Yet it is not really a first.

I start my first day of eleventh home.
After spending every school year in the same small school, it is extremely odd for me to not go back there. Homeschooling is a lot different. Yet it feels like I am still in the middle of summer. 

I miss my school. I miss my friends and teachers. I miss all of it. But everything has to change at some point. 

I feel nervous despite being in my own home. My mom set up all of my assignments for this week. She has to work so I am basically teaching myself. I have to be responsible and manage my time wisely. I guess this is good practice for the future but it is still overwhelming.

Looking up in the night
I see a sky full of light

The darkness illuminated
By stars and everything related

It's like a beautiful canvas
Yet no one understands this

If only time would freeze
Then everything would ease

Almost like it was meant to be
Here for you and me

Its official.
They are shutting down our high school and there is nothing we can do about it.

I need time to process what this means so I walk to the dock near my house. There is a beautiful sunset filled with pinks and reds that reflect onto the lake. I sit down on the hard wood of the dock.
Why are they making us do this? Most of us have gone to this school since kindergarten. Why do they want to separate us? 
I feel tears roll down my cheeks as I continue to think about this change in my life.
I don't want to go to a different school. I don't want to leave my friends. I don't want to leave my teachers. I just don't understand.
I'm crying harder than before. The tears just won't stop. Suddenly, I feel a hand on my shoulder. I look up to see my sister. She sits down next to me but waits for me to say something first.

Forever And Always

You make me smile
and my heart skip a beat
despite my world
collapsing at my feet

You keep me from breaking
and tearing myself apart
with just a few words
that you speak from your heart

You help me get through
everything that scares me
by always being here
wherever here may be

I love you so much
in so many ways
together, you and me
forever and always

The Perfect Night

The cool wind blows
as I sit by the fire
looking up at the sky
thinking about all I desire

The night is dark
but the moon shines bright
illuminating the world
with its precious light

I listen in silence
to little critters around
wishing the moon
would never go down

This feeling is perfect
if only it would stay
but sadly I must watch
it all go away
