My voice

My Brother

Authored by: Female, 17


A time when I feel love or loved is when I look into the eyes of my brother

He is a bad kid, but all kids are naughty once in a while

He has beautiful black hair, big black eye pupils and pale skin, just as me

When I look at him I feel happy, but when I look into his eyes, I feel so much love

He smiles and I skip a blink

when he says my name my heart beats so fast, it’s insane

I love that baby boy

without him I’m lost

He is my life!

Love is happy

Love is strong

Love is the sound of laughter

Love is the sound of a beating heart

Love is sad

Love is heartbreaking

Love is good and bad

Love is hard at times

Love is imagination

Love is real

Love is kind

Love is comforting

Love is that feeling when someone or something makes you feel inside

One in a Million

When I first saw you
It was only a dream
When I first met you
You were the nicest to me
You were on in a million

I went to school with you
You were top of the class
I sort of got to know you
You were a respectable man
You were one in a million

I shared dark secrets with you
You were understanding
You made time for me when I called you
Whether I was or wasn’t crying
You were one in a million

You are understanding
You are kind
You are a blessing in my upside down life
You are the only one that is more than one in a million

The Most Alone

Authored by: Female, 17


People tell me I’m strong,

Many say I’ll make it through,

Little do they think they know,

That is when I am the most alone.

Day after day I sit and wait,

Counting seconds that continue on,

Wishing time wouldn’t be so slow,

That is when I am the most alone.

As I watch my friends in hardship,

Tears down their face and in their eyes,

With a broken heart and no more hope,

That is when I am the most alone.

I miss my family, I miss my house,

Despite the pain, I miss the fun,

I have no place to call my home,

That is when I am the most alone.

I feel abandoned, yet I have a place to sleep,

I feel unloved, yet there is a few that do care,

Most will never understand and know,

What I mean when I am the most alone.
