    Escape May Be Deadly

    in Fear Poems by Teens

    Trees, trees, trees
    Branches, sticks, leaves

    in Hurting Poems by Teens

    Glittering eyes, full of smiles
    Happy and proud all the way around

    Never shown any signs of disappointment...

    How every time I see your face I know that you're real

    No matter where you see a Red Rose

    What are the right words for you to hear to make you believe me?
