Winter Edition 2011
Far away,aith And gone forever, Hope can stay, So never say never. Deep in your heart, Strength will stay, If you just do your part, And never say never.
Regret is a situation I want to endThe biggest mistake is doing
Even when Im with my friendsI want this whole thing just to end
Sometimes I ponder what I would do
If this whole thing hadnt come true
Even though its in the pastIm still running from it really fast
Crying out for someone to care Because deep inside Im
Help me! Help me! Help me, please!Can someone just acknowledge
I honestly dont know what I should do
Is there anyone who can see my pain through and through
Now day by dayThings are slowly coming into play
Hurt, regret, and sheding tearsAre only going to make me
stonger over the years
So now I am a little strongerNo need to cry any longer
I am happy with the things that happen everyday
Theres a new person waiting to break away
Regret? Ha! Thats in my pastBecause guess what? Im
Regret . . .By: Tiara Perkins
For fifteen years you have been by my side,
And when you leave, you will always be on my mind,
We've shared so many tears and so many laughs,
I must admit that you are my better half.
I will in my room all sad and alone,And wait for the night when we catch up
on the phone,Please don't leave and forget about me,
Because then I will miss my best friend you see.
I know you must grow and mature in your studies,
So remember now who is your one true buddy,
I love you so much and don't you forget,I will always cherish the first day
BrooklynByMy Better Half
For 15 years
You were supposed to always be there for me,
But now you feel like a distant memory.
A call here; a call there,It really makes me feel like you just
A fathers love is supposed to be pure;But yours feels rocky and unsure.
You never tucked me in at night,You never taught me how to fly a kite.
You never did anything a father should do it seems,
You never comforted me when I awoke from bad dreams.
A fathers love is true and unconditional they say,
So whenever Im around you why does it feel like a play?
Like you just acting and really dont want me around,
And you wonder why I sit in the corner and dont make a sound.
I try and tell you how I feel, but you dont understand,
But what can I expect from an imperfect man.
I wish though for only one day you could be perfect for me,
And then maybe; just maybe I could see.That you actually do love me.
A Fathers Love

Memoriesby Marlei EnglishThe day you were born,The styles youve worn.Your birthdays you remember,That special day in December.When you travel far away, All the things you say.Who your best friends are,When you get your first car.These memories and many more,
Are what will make your heart soar.As you get older these will fade,More will be made,But you will never forget these days,
They formed the person you are that stays.

In our teenage minds the big picture isnt clearBecause we dont face the same traumatic fear
Across dark waters, and through unknown landsIn these areas, I am one of their biggest fans
In America, friends talk about each otherIn Iraq, each man is a brother
Gun shots in this small town are very rareBut in Iraq its all they hear
Liberty and trust are two simple wordsBut in Iraq its a whole different world
Liberty for families at home and trust that your brother has your backInto beds at night they all stack
Prayers for the ones they lost, and pains shooting up their bodiesLord bless those American soldiers who cross those dark seas
A land unknown full of men of our countryIn this time we are seeing our history
Peace in the Middle East is not a familiar soundBut this is not the first time we have fought for their ground.
