2: LOVE Passion, devotion, fondness, adore Love is so pure, it will last for ever more.
3: What is the opposite of light? A dark and stormy night, A dark pool of oil, Or food that's spioled.

6: I DON'T UNDERSTAND... I don't understand why everyone can't get along why people are so mean why people hurt the ones they love But most of all why parents don't understand why friendships much end why the ones we love hurt us What I understand most is why trees grow why things change why birds chirp why we have bestfriends
7: JUST BECAUSE... Just because I'm a teenager Doesn't mean I'm inconsiderate Doesn't mean you can walk all over me Doesn't make you better than me Just because I'm a teenager It doesn't mean your always right It doesn't mean I don't care about my future It doesn't mean I party every weekend Just because I'm a teenager I'm not lazy I'm not unappreciative I don't depend on my parents for everything Just because I'm a teenager--treat me as an adult.
8: I AM I am loud and understanding I wonder what the future holds I hear the trickle of time passing me by I see flowers in the early morning light I want to stop time in a box I am loud and understanding. I pretend to be a statue I feel the shakes inside me I touch the happiness I desire I worry that'll I'll neve rget what my heart longs for I cry when things get hard I am loud and understanding. I understand the reasons for pain and happiness I say everything happens for a reason I dream of being completely happy I try to make the best of every situation I hope to never fall out of love I am loud and understanding.
9: Love Beautiful, Wonderful Satisfying, Dazzling, Growing Infatuation, Adoring, Disgust, Uncaring Unarmed, Animosity, Unknowingly Wicked, Unsightly Hate
10: WHAT IF What if I were smarter? I might have a better future. What if I just said how I felt? I could hurt alot of people. What if I could fly? I would travel the world. What if you were me?
11: Peaceful, quiet, beautiful Walking on clouds In the middle of the dessert.
12: kids playing freshness of a new day birds chirping engery of the sun dew on the wind start of a new day
13: I BELIEVE I believe in love and friendship, the right to love endlessly, the power of motivation, the importance of caring, the strength of family, endless possibilities, a loved one's hand, dedication. But I don't believe that money brings happiness. I believe in reaching out and touching from the heart, I believe in the goodness in people, I believe in promises, strength, courage, gratitude. And I belive in living life to the fullest with no regrets.
14: Carefully I walk Trying so hard to be brave They all see my fear Dark glasses cover their eyes As mine flow over with tears.
15: SOMEDAY... Someday I will graduate high school. Someday I will have a job I love. Someday I will marry my best guy friend. Someday I will find who I really am. Someday I will be noticed. Someday I will make a difference.
16: The most important thing about Joseph is his courage to never give up. He is also trustworthy, honest, caring, and compationate. He is also understanding, loving, strong, and smart. He is also the nicest most amazing person I've ever met. But the most important thing about Joseph is his courage to never give up.
17: If I'd given you a chance I would not now have regrets Trapped by violence, chocked by dreams My hopes before my life turned incomplete. I would not now have regrets, For having turned away one who loved My hopes before my life turned incomplete Now live in the darkness you create.
18: Song Hanging by a Moment- Lifehouse
19: Love One Another By Khalil Gibran Love one another, but make not a bond of love Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup, but do not drink from one cup. Give one another your bread, but do not eat from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone. Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near together; For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
20: If Those I Loved Were Lost By Emily Dickinson If those I loved were lost The Criers voice would tell me-- If those I loved were lost The bells of Ghent would ring-- Did those I love repose The Daisy would impel me. Phillip -- when bewildered Bore his riddle in!
21: Love is Enough By William Morris Love is enough: though the world be a-waning, And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining. Thought the skies be to dark for dim eyes to discover The gold-cups and daisy's fair blooming thereunder, Through the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wonder. And this day drawn a veil over all deeds passed over, Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter, The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter, these lips and these eyes of the loved and the lover.
