34: Trade Tech Creative Writers | Scary Things By Reed Morris Visually enticed by the vast universe We stare until we take death’s final curse. Down into the ground, we vanish Only underground, there’s no perish. Passing days slowly, but not slow enough Going crazy, in this world so rough. Seeping through the crevice to hell below Down the devil’s gullet we go. Falling into the fire’s spite Suddenly waking to the morning light. Safe and sound, you’re in your bed The scariest place, is in your head. | The Four Seasons By Reed Morris The leaves of the oaks, all orange, brown, and crisp sink to the ground, with a spiraling twist. The snow from the sky is water yet dry, cold as a tundra, but burns your heart bright. The petals of plants, and things such as these, make all sorts of scenes, like beautiful dreams. And last but not least, from seas come a mist, a cool gentle breeze, make life seem like bliss.
35: Sunday Bloody Sunday By Julian Guzman (Inspired by Tolerance Project) | Bodies strewn across this dead-end street Shards of glass upon the children’s feet And you hear the people cry As a part of their own heart has died Sunday bloody Sunday (2x) As if a war is going on, Inside of each and everyone When the soul begins to burn For their loved ones they can only yearn. Sunday bloody Sunday (2x) Over there you see a boy And over there you see a girl And both of them are tasting death As they took in their last breath They didn’t get the chance to live Both their lives they had to give And they would never get that chance Both were killed at just a glance Sunday Bloody Sunday (4x) And when you take in all this pain Knowing they’ve all died in vain What’s the point you ask yourself? Why’ve our lives plunged into hell? So my friends, just can’t you see? What from this there comes to be? If you see nothing at all, Will you take the time to warn them all? Sunday Bloody Sunday (4x) See the bodies on this dead-end street..
