Stephanie, Age 13, Staten Island, NY

As I wake up I notice silence that is upon me.
It seems I'm in a place where nothing is to be found.
I'm in a place where the silence never ends.

Without noise the silence just frightens me.
The silence just says it all.
But as I draw near the door I hear noise.
The noise that I was waiting for,
the noise that really seems to wake me up.

As I open the door I realize
that the noise was just the sound of my place,
my place with all the people that I know,
a noise that I hear everyday.
