3: Inside Inside I am very confused Inside me is a girl who paints until her hands ache Inside me there is my own little world Where nobody ever has to wonder Inside a silly crazy girl She can't get enough of music Inside is an angel Inside there is a devil that covers up it's true identity Inside I have the secrets and the truth about life Inside I am a dark person I love all things twisted and sinister Inside me there is a heart with a thick shell Inside me is a wide imagination It spreads across the universe A person with a deep passion for poetry Inside me is a girl that keeps nearly everyone And everything from hurting her Inside me is a girl that cannot keep her balance And just when she thinks she has it.... She falls Inside are rivers of thoughts They flow through my brain Inside me is a girl that can keep herself a mystery Her whole life

5: "Dealing with backstabbers, there was one thing I learned. They're only powerful when you got your back turned." -Eminem | "I followed my heart and figured that if I tried and failed, at least I'd know that I tried" -Michelle Branch
6: "Hello?" | Hello to my mind The one that can no longer function right It's bending ready...steady..SNAP! It's still breaking Soon it will fall to the ground Limp like noodles Weak, weak like a newborn And lost like a dog in the streets It will soon blow away The wind will carry it through the trees Unless the problem gets solved Th rebirth begins and nothing fades If everything becomes sane Nobody would need to say "hello?" "Hello?...Hello?...Hello?"
7: Done? | Are my dreams real? They watch me fall for something i want I watch myself fall But I never learn my lesson I never give up Days pass by my soul feels so empty With every hour,day,week,month Wait Why won't it end? Am I done? NO I'm not Longing for what I can't have Can't comprehend Is this what I want? Misery? Romance slaps me in the face Avoiding it won't come easily Can't avoid it
8: I Believe: | 1. I believe in peace 2.I believe people can change 3. I believe there is no sanity 4.That nothing lasts forever 5.That taking a chance is worth it 6.I believe honesty is good 7.That friends stand up for each other 8.That life isn't fair 9.That you should express yourself 10. That everyone believes in something
9: Dear Confusion, How is it that I'm always the person who has to think? I waste tons of time dreaming about solutions and things to fix between us but you never see that. I want to forget we ever knew each other sometimes but you make is impossible to. Why won't you let me forget? I guess I haven't been fair to you by making you wonder about how I feel. I'm sorry for not being honest but you aren't always honest yourself. If we both keep avoiding the subject or questions we are going to regret it. I already am I don't think you are well you could be but I don't know for sure. I'm also sorry for being mad at you one minute then nice the next. Personally I think it's funny sometimes but you may not. If you would think for once I wouldn't be so frustrating or confusing. It seems like I know you better than you know you sometimes and it kind of scares me a bit. I wIll try to always be there if and
10: when you need me. This is a confession type letter I guess you could say.The funny thing about this letter is that if you read it you won't know I'm talking to you :). So do me a favor and quit being a brick wall and I'll do the same let's not waste these last four days. Your Friend, Cierra Muniz
11: This I Believe | I believe that people should always show kindness to other people no matter what.It shouldn't matter what a person likes or how they dress.We need to quit judging and labeling people we don't know. I have been labeled and it's stupid when you don't know the person. Why do we have to fight? I know it's not possible for us all to get along but it wouldn't hurt anyone to try. Who cares who that person is friends with or how they dress or even how popular they are? There are so many other important things on this earth that how many friends you have. I would rather jump off a building than have somebody tell me I'm popular I could care less.
12: I will never say i haven't judged but one thing i have done that most people don't is I have been nice. The kids who are judged and bullied hurt so much inside but we don't see it. We have to realize what they go through. We need to put ourselves in their shoes. All people deserve kindness even people who don't show it back. Peace between people is so important and as a generation we need to start thinking about that.This I believe. | L | o | V | E
13: Botanic Gardens Writing | Little Red The lonely thing Small, fragile and red The only one of it's kind Among the 20 other flowers It stands alone blooms by itself This flower called my name I gave her company She thanked me for writing about her My little red flower
14: Botanic Gardens Writing (river) | It runs through this place This beautiful place A place that man created For mother natures children We stare at it's beauty And embrace this unusual yet calm feeling It's no wonder why we feast Upon it's beauty
16: Botanic Gardens Writing | Above I'm like a cloud I can see everyone below I'm a camera Capturing everything I see I store it on this page And in my memories I will keep it Forever :)
17: Memories | Personally memories to me are like buttons.Each one so unique and different the each belong to one thing. My memories are different and all belong to my mind. Looking back I remember the Botanic Gardens and El Dorado Canyon. From walking home with Kaitlyn and Renee to making a sculpture in art with my best friend Lluvia.I won't forget this whole year and all of the fun times with my friends.
