On Death
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The pale, the cold, and the moony smile
Which the meteor beam of a starless night
Sheds on a lonely and sea-girt isle,
Ere the dawning of morn's undoubted light,
Is the flame of life so fickle and wan
That flits round our steps till their strength is gone.

O man! hold thee on in courage of soul
Through the stormy shades of thy wordly way,
And the billows of clouds that around thee roll

Butterfly, Butterfly
by Sharon Adamson

Hoping to catch your eye
Circling around you, oh my
Butterfly, butterfly, come into the light
Oh, what a beautiful sight
Flying so gracefully
Into the sky, the butterfly
Trying to catch a butterfly
Fly, fly, fly, butterfly
There he sets upon the mums
I'm having so much fun

Saturday At The Canal
by Gary Soto

I was hoping to be happy by seventeen.
School was a sharp check mark in the roll book,
An obnoxious tuba playing at noon because our team
Was going to win at night. The teachers were
Too close to dying to understand. The hallways
Stank of poor grades and unwashed hair. Thus,
A friend and I sat watching the water on Saturday,
Neither of us talking much, just warming ourselves
By hurling large rocks at the dusty ground
And feeling awful because San Francisco was a postcard

The Mores
by John Clare

Far spread the moorey ground a level scene
Bespread with rush and one eternal green
That never felt the rage of blundering plough
Though centurys wreathed spring's blossoms on its brow
Still meeting plains that stretched them far away
In uncheckt shadows of green brown, and grey
Unbounded freedom ruled the wandering scene
Nor fence of ownership crept in between
To hide the prospect of the following eye
Its only bondage was the circling sky

A Sunday
by P Jane

I wish you would feel like a Sunday,
or a warm breeze,
a dim candle,
but all i feel is a fire for you,
a incesent yearning,
a deep desire,
that I surpres by pretending it is not there,
lying to my life,
but fuck it is burning.

The Wind On The Ledge
by Chloe Foster

The wind scatters her hair,
The fragile fabric of her shirt clings to her back.
The wind attempts to push her forward,
As her crowded and crammed mind begins to retract.

Trapped in a memory,
Existing in the exhausting grasp of the past,
Her world; wrapped up in a few moments,
A box of trauma and pain that has yet to pass.

It All About Making Human History All Year (Poem) By Christen Kuikoua
by Christen Kuikoua

See Dark skin just mean more sun block,
it got absolutely nothing to do with ‘Races’.
It Just means Your Ancestor lived in places closer to the Equator.
the Sun was stronger,
So they needed melanin in their skin to make it darker
and lighter skin just means less protection which is ideal in places.
Where the sun emits less intense ray
it’s just Evolution
our bodies adapting to keep us Safe.
So I agree Racist should never be together but human should

What
by Arthur Fox

Welcome to the fire,
Thoughts skim the depths of desire.

Ever think it's too late,
The moment gone, time to capitulate?

Regret barbs the heart like a thorn,
Welcome to our scorn.

But there's no time like the present,

darkness
by Lauren Davies

i feel my way through the darkness, stumbling
over every bump
falling through every crack
looking for you
holding my hand out for you;
always looking
for you.
one day i will remember it was you
who took away the light
