Perfect

By Morgan Shaffer

She uncovers her eyes
She’s dying inside.
She’s starving from anticipation.
So much food wasted.
She paces the floor and drinks another glass of water.
She’s hardcore.
Her skin is tight.
She’s starting to show,


Quite simply, you are a parallel revolution

By Brooke Shippee

Life is a never-ending coil
With twists and turns
And you are the one thing that I did not count on.

You are the mistake in a waltz.

Uniform Place

By Priya Jain

Even if the school desks
Are perfectly aligned
And the chairs evenly spaced
And the walls precisely decorated
And the white boards
Sparkling white,


The Race

By Natalie Gartland

The start of the race isn’t always easy
They say to just put one foot in front of the other
Then repeat

Imperfection

By Dennis Rothwell

Of gleaming perfection.

Of human without sin.
The world at your whims,
Subject to your knees,
Yet you ask nothing of them,
For every person sees,
That you are perfect.

By Hridya Kakumanu

I am an ordinary school girl,
I have homework,
I have assignments,
I have essays,
and I have tests.

By Esther Lee

I am a perfectionist. Even a simple task will take me a long time to complete. I often overdo things and when something is not faultless, I will hate it. I never turn in a project that isn’t exactly the way I want it.

Who am I?
     I am a puzzle. A million words and thoughts and ideas, feelings that fit together.

                              I look hard.
     Some I have no idea what they mean.
     Some are small, invisible.
