Friendly

My community is friendly. Not friendly enough for everyone to welcome each other with open arms. Not friendly enough to prevent violence. Not friendly enough to become friends with everyone we see. A type of friendly where we can belong and feel at home . . .

A Star

a light of differ ent sizes w ay up in the ev ening sky shining down on us, a sparkle in the dark night, it makes everyone wish upon it, coming out every night brighter than the first, amusing us with its beauty and making us wonder how much of them are there in all, it is a question that is always asked but can never be answered, this wond erful thing brings hope in our eye s and light in our dreams, it is one of the most amazing things that is out there, it is what we all call a— ST AR!  . . .
