Bring Downs

Sometimes thinking on the nagative side of things can lead to a life full of madness and sadness. Thinking on the positive side of things can lead to a life full of happiness... I have difficulties with keeping my head up and thinking good things. When I wake up every morning my day starts off with me bringing myself down, when it comes to school it stresses and brings me down. I get overwhelmed and I stress.

Create Desire

By: Karen Volkman

The Peom "Create Desire" by: Karen Volkman shows Anxiety. I think that if I practiced a little more and kept trying to perform and speak in front of crowds and groups I would actually become less scared over time. I can't just snap my fingers and become the normal regular not afraid girl, this will take time I will not always be like this. And there are different types of anxiety and reasons for it I mean everyone has some type of anxiety

The poem "Delibrate" by Amy Uyematsu connects with me. I am a girl confused and filled with Anxiety. This poems speaks about the confusion and the stresses of anxiety. When I speak i talk with a chopped up voice and i cant keep myself focused on whats important. When i stand in front of a room where others are staring up at me i get nervous. In line 4 in the poem i think of ¨Syn/co/pa/ted beat¨ as the type of way a person thats nervous speaks its kinda how I speak in front of others.

Across a Table

By: Steven Cordova

I am the one to always think negative i have always tried to think positively but it never happens. I think on the dark side of things i believe everything my mind is thinking. I believe that everything that i think about is true, will actually happen, or is all about me and my doing. Lines 7 and 8 in the poem i can connect to ¨And who can blame you? Not me. I'm not the one¨ usually my mind accepts the bad things and i agree sometimes that things that happen are my fault but most times they really aren't, wish i was the one to tell myself that things aren't my fault all the time.

Anxiety overwhelms me it causes me to become scared of speaking in front of my own group of friends or a group of untrusted people... I feel as if I'm being talked about, laughed at, and more behind my back. I could be able to speak maybe if all eyes weren't on me.


By: A. Stallings

This poem connects to my negative side. It talks about the darkness that comes with being Negative or an only negative thinker, I can't change what I think and I can't change me. Maybe later on in life i will change my way of thinking overtime right now I can't do anything about it.


By: Kevin Young

I don't know what is wrong with me I'm always thinking on the bad side of things. I think negative things, I wish I could think positive but I can't. When I think negative I'm not as happy as I should be, being positive and thinking positive is what makes a happier person and that is what I want to be. Always hiding underneath fake smiles and laughs.

Always Something More Bueatiful

By: Stephen Dunn

I love running I ran in track since the beginning of my Sweet Home Middle School years. Running and making a PR (Personal Record) makes me really happy. My speed is like a cheetah, running is my passion, if Im not running I'm unhappy. When it comes to running I don't let my pain stop me, I race inhaling and exhaling beating people next to me. When I run all of my problems go away.
