What If?

By Betsy Jenifer, age 16, India

What if the mountains were rosy and the oceans ran red?
What if clouds could shine like stars instead?
What if wildflowers could sing?

Discouraged! Defeated! Deflated!

Calling to their friends.

When I

By Christina Monroe, age 18, Ohio

Our ambitions will be real,
And we will be the people we've aspired to be.

Dark, terrifying shadows dance in my blurred vision.
