Poetry by Carly Nasch
I am 13 and wrote this poem after I was thinking of what I could do to show my forgiveness other than in words. I started thinking that time doesn't really stop so you can fix your sins, but every day when the sun rises, you can come up with a way to be sorry and prove it. You can say sorry so many times and each time it could mean something else. You can be saying sorry but really think this is a waste of you time, or you could actually mean it. You have to let the other person know what kind of sorry you are saying.
I am a student, a learner, a righteous person. I am a poet. I am someone who will sit down on my free time with my own free will, and write a poem. When I write, I feel like my whole body, is in balance. I am not a person who when disagrees on something, will stand up and speak my mind right then and now. What I would do is go home take out a sheet of paper, and write what I am thinking. Poetry is my refuge, my sacred thing, something no one can take away from me. I am a poet and proud to be one.
Sometimes starting a new school can be tough. You can't be afraid or try to be invisible. It never worked for me. Show people who you are, show your true colors.
