The Struggle

by Rachel C., Age 15 , Grade 9

Girl who fights, kicks and screams.

She’s hurt inside, but no one sees,

Locked away, but can’t find the keys.


Trying to make it, to the next day,

Surviving, not thriving, fading away.


Guy all alone, running from home.

Trying to live, without getting lost,

Keeping his secrets, no matter the cost.


Trying to make it, to the next day,

Surviving, not thriving; fading away.


Bronze and pale, Strong and frail,

Tough together, but worse apart.

Broken halves, of a soulful heart.


 Trying to make it, to the next day,

Surviving, not dying, finding a way.
