Three short poems that appear in this year's poetry anthology produced by students at Central Junior High School in Moore:
By Tobyn Moreno
none of us can afford.
We must learn from it, but we cannot live there.
It is impossible to plan for the now — the present is ever fleeting.
The future is what we must plan for.
By Liyah Ingram
I could be an angel, just without a halo.
Just because I'm black doesn't mean I'd steal from you.
Did you not get that clue?
Just because I'm black doesn't mean you should judge me.
God created us all equally!
By Stacy Bobo
It would be dark gray,
As lifeless as a zombie.
If depressed was a taste,
It would be just like celery.
If depressed was a smell,
It would be as nasty as a trash can.
If depressed was a sound,
It would be as loud as a child's scream!
