I remember . . . you let me tag along
and ride the car when you went to town.
You would sit in the bus terminal
drink stale coffee and smoke
Prince Albert-that was the coolest name-and tell tall tales with
all the other old men.
When it was too cold to stand in front of the five-and-dime,and you would laugh and joke
and carry on
and have a good time.
You'd make me
promise not to tell
Mommy that you had flurted with
And you never told me that
one day I would go up
and those carefree days of being a tag along would be gone.
And you never told me that
Yes, that’s me
Look and you’ll see
My hair an untamed mess an my head
My eyes seeing everything that I can take in
My arms embracing life
My hands holding on to everything I love
My heart going out to all our miners
I’m the one that is always there
I never give up
My friends keep me laughing
I live to keep on living
I hope to always be a good person
I dream of a successful life
It’s all clear as can be
That’s positively, absolutely me
I remember the day my life changed
I remember being at school and it was a regular day.
I remember getting the call from my dad and the crackle in his excited laugh
I remember the way my heart was pumping as I said I love you dad.
I remember the long drive to Charleston as my heart was racing from the tense and excitement.
I remember waiting in the waiting room with my hands sweating and my heart pumping.
I remember the second I laid my eyes into hers.
I remember the second I got to wrap my arms around her.
My real name is Dakota.
Yesterday, My name was, “spend time with my girlfriend.”
Today my name is,
“Feed the dog!”
My name will be ,”the greatest boyfriend in the world”.
In my dreams my name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
I am from the Country Mountains of Chapmanville, West Virginia
I am from the Britney Spears CD’s to Backstreet Boys Albums
I am from the childhood of joy and happiness.
I am from the blue mountain bikes and discovering different places of town.
I am from the barefoot one the trampoline on a summer day.
I am from the Nintendo 64 playing Mario Party along with my brother.
I am from the doll houses and dresses up Barbies I made come to life with my cousin.
I am from Disney princesses being my favorite movie.
I am from Michael Jackson’s fan to his number one fan.
I remember my first day of Pre-K.
I remember my heart racing fast because I was so excited.
I remember my dog backpack.
It was furry and I loved it.
I also remember my purple Winnie the Pooh Lunchbox.
I remember how I didn’t even say bye to mom and dad because I made friends as soon as I walked into the gym.
I remember the gym looking so big and feeling so old.
I remember it all as if it happened yesterday.
by Makayla McLemore
I am from the bitter voices that surround my head during blank times.
from the demented cloudy thoughts that float on by
I am from steep mountains that tower over the world.
from the crowded-filled creeks that have no ends
I am from dysfunctional emotions when it comes to misunderstandment.
I am from the wreck of a family that is slowly coming together.
I am from the heart that continues to beat.
from the mind that constantly worries
I am from being a pessimistic optimist.

Yes, that's me
look and you'll see.
My hair a major mess
My eyes big and brown
My arms pale ask can be
My hands growing longer
My heart keeps me alive.
I'm always a trusting friend.
My friends are the best.
I live in a quiet neighborhood.
I hope to have a successful future.
I dream on going far.
It's all clear as can be
that's positively, absolutely me.
I remember December 12, 2009
I remember the adrenaline rushing through my body
I remember the facials, encouraging chants, and the excitement
I remember all the intense practices that just about done me in
I remember all the fans going insane as soon as we stepped on the floor
I remember the longest three minutes of my life that was over in a matter of seconds
I remember the struggling and pushing myself until my break point
I remember working as a team who wanted nothing but to win
I remember the exact feeling of all the hard work paying off
I'm so sorry for eating
all the delicious food.
I know that
it was for the family
and all the company coming over.
Forgive me,it smelled so good.
It was so tempting,
and yet so wor it.
