Revealing Time
Yael, Age 14, Seattle, WA

                      I see the world shatter,
I see it all,
I can't move, I'm frozen
frozen in time
No one is here to listen
Everyone just leaves me
in a worthless clump
No one cares
no one
All alone in the world
time begins, re-starts
I wait, I'm breathless
when I take in that gulp of fresh air
all I feel is pain in my lungs,
the urge to cry.
But I don't,
I hold in tears like always
hoping everything is just
a nightmare
then I awake into an endless sleep
never to return,
leaving guilt and shock,
on the faces, who said
"no, you can't."
