Bagged Joy

By Kelsey Haley, age 16, North Carolina

“You don’t know what

you’ve got till it’s

gone.”

Cliché?

Maybe.

But it’s true

when the shiny,

silver bag

coated with salt

looks back at you.

Tipped upside down,

crumbs fall freely

to the floor.

A growling stomach

looks forlorn.

The happiness has

faded.

Finishing the “course”, well,

it’s not always

what it seems.

With this type of

completing

the body only wants more.
