Poems written for the Rising Stars

Sun rays fry the air
Cool water our safe haven
Washing heat away


Pressure rises as deadlines near
Roiling thoughts of panic lurk
Obstacles that seem too high
Creating a cycle of despair
Run away from all these problems
A small voice whispers in your mind
Stop trying, it’s impossible
Those words are a paralytic
Instilling a sense of futility
Nothing can break you of
Apathetic to the world
There is a glimmer of hope
Inconceivably, a tiny chance
Of finishing everything
Never give up on your dreams


Poor choices made
Wondering where they lead
Hoping there is still time to save
