We’ve given up the old ways
We know what we mean Citations

Poem- My Time
I sit quietly and watch
Making sure that no one is coming for me
My friend and I start to make eye contact but quickly break
No one could imagine the agony this causes us
We are just children after all
We have together survived these trying times
Keeping a bold face to seem strong
When really we are weak and crying out for help
But no one comes to our rescue
The next time I look to my friend she is gone and I know what has happened
Well, it is my time now
