2: Table of Contents Our Reason to 1 Coffee 2 3 4 Night 5 About the 6 Works 7

3: 1 | Everyone has a dream, our dream is to dance, sometimes it can be tough when we aren't given the chance. "Where's dancing gonna get you?" Some parents just don't get it we dance because we love it, not from how much we'll get from it. don't ever let anyone put you down if it's the one thing you want it's you dream not theirs and soon they'll understand. | Our Reason to Dance... By Angela Haddad | I have watched many dancers in my life who weren't supported by their parents or someone else, but I have never experienced that. I can relate to the reasons we dance- the main one being that we love dancing in general.

4: Coffee Shop By Jewel Kilcher Young girls wrap themselves tightly in bright smiles and denim, No more patent leather and pigtails here. They suck on coffee, with great indifference, their young thighs weapons they have cocked, hardly comprehending the potency which lies in suggestion. Tight, dark blue wrangler jeans and lonely smiles like latent prophecies. | This poem stuck out to me because I love coffee shops (hence the title). also incorporates the "growing up" of young ladies and how they go from being small and wearing pigtails and wearing leather to being mature and going out on their own. They have little comprehension of the power they hold of being on their own soon. I can relate to this poem very well. | 2 | Taken by Trissy Smith

5: Running By Richard Wilbur What were we playing? Was it prisoner's base? I ran with whacking Keds Down the cart road past Rickard's place, And where it dropped beside the tractor sheds Leapt out into the air above a blurred terrain, through jolted light Took two hard lopes, and at the third Spanked off a hummock-side exactly right, And made the turn, and with delighted strain Sprinted across the flat By the bull-pen and up the lane. Thinking of happiness, I think of that. | I don't know the exact reason this poem was made, or what exactly the author was writing of. I can just relate to the feelings the author had toward running and how it made him happy. When he writes about sprinting up the lane, I get images in my head of me running at track meets. | 3 | Taken in Bartlesville 2008

6: Shopping By Tristen Smith When I spot cute clothes, my feeling is ecstatic, and my mother tells me I'm acting overly dramatic. Fitting into a try-on is the greatest rush yet, Even though I may splurge an amount that I regret. Buying new shoes is like icing on the cake, What a wonderful outfit this all will make! | Shopping has always been something I enjoy. New clothes excite me, and this poem displays my feelings toward shopping. I get my love for shopping from my mom, who loves shopping more than anyone I know. | 4

7: Night Trips By Tristen Smith When the stars are out bright and the city's lit up with lights, It's my favorite time to drive around with pleasing music as the sound. Highways are filled from lane to lane, the wondering of everyone's destinations still remains. I sometimes fall asleep while riding and feeling so protected, but when we get home and come to a stop, it sure is detected. | Night trips have entertained me since I was little. I love seeing city lights and being on the highways at night being able to see a large area of a city. I feel comfortable when I'm in the backseat looking out. I remember as a kid I always fell asleep in the car and would wake up as we pulled into the garage. | 5
