"You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I will always love you. That's where I'll be waiting." - J.M.B.

To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure." - J.K.R.

A story of the adolescent age,
about the lives of eight youths, much like us.
Filled with pure, arrogant, impotent rage,
lust, tiredness, drugged bliss, and animus.
Spirit, courage, agony, passion, wrath;
emotion we all face, our lives are like
living on a shard of breakable glass,
relief by pills and spliff, peace found each night.
Adults think we have no real, true substance,
but as our lives crash like waves on the sand,
our fury was made based on their absence;
we stall stand together, one mighty band.
Rise and Fall, Life moves ever on and on;
Never have to say goodbye, Battle On.

The author's comments:

Wrote this for creative writing class, but wanted to post it. Based on the the British TV Drama 'Skins', the hardships and trials those kids went through before they headed off to their univeristies or other life plans.

Hope you all enjoy it. Please comment. More to come :)
