I wish could…
I wish I could be over 21 because I would be able to do whatever I want. I wish I could be in the Bad Girls Club because when I match it on tv it seems so much fun. I wish I could be an accountant because I would make a lot of money. I wish I had tattoos. I wish I could fall in love. I wish I cared. I wish I people will notice me. I wish I could be a singer instead of being so shy. I wish I could be smarter. I wish I could be pretty.
1. 3 things about Prisons that stood out from last week.
• Prisoners have time to regret + feel remorse
• Punishment doesn't fit crime
• Amount of money funding prisons overrule school funding
Never Shall I Forget the piercing pain that shoots through my system
as my mom says to me in a calm weird like voice with eyes full of regret
"Im disappointed in you."
Never SHall I Forget the warmth that spread throughout the house
when she laughs & tickles my little sister.
Never SHall I Forget the dark lonely nights
and hearing the squeaky sound of my door
as my little sister opens it to lay beside me for comfort.
Never shall I Forget those hot sizzling days,
seeing a ritas water-ice in someone's hands
and just wanting to drown in its cold sensation.
Never Shall I forget the first time I saw you
and looking back never knowing
how important you'd mean to me now.
