The moon shines bright
In the dark of the night.
But when it fades away in the morning
The sky seems pretty boring.
Art is amazing don’t you think?
You can make beautiful pictures
Out of simple things like paint or ink.
And frame it on a wall or refrigerator.
In the daytime the sun is up in the sky
In the night it’s as if the sun exploded into a million pieces.

Each time we head to the grocery store, we all wonder if it’s safe to do so and if we do, will we find what we need?
This thought is on the minds of fellow shoppers, apparent from the looks on shopper’s faces as they view...
There’s the group that sits at the long table,
the one that stretches from wall to wall.
Where all the kids my age
(every single one) sit
Earlier in the day, I saw them in classes
or passed them in halls

and wondered if they noticed me, maybe
something clicked that day, maybe
they waved at me and smiled.
All I know is that now

is Amiah and Hailey and Kendra,
Leah and Henry Z.,
Yamil, Henry R.,
I feel happy
my friends made me
better than ever
Age 9, Grade 4
Freemansburg Elementary School
Bethlehem Area School District
I enter a public place and map all the exits out
There is constantly the thought that I might need an escape route
I heard a firework the other day and was sure it was a bomb
I can’t communicate the fear that I felt through a poem or a song
This is the way that we have all gotten used to living
So my apologies, if your jokes regarding violence don’t leave me feeling very forgiving
Our world, it has made me grow weary
