Poetry: Aaliyah Sams




Sharing a room with a stranger

Having to make space with no space

Attitudes colliding, bad thoughts flying

How much more can I take?


Procrastinating one assignment after another

Excessive amount of work all thrown at once

A book bag full of books 

When will it be over?


Am I gaining weight?

It is only two unhealthy meals a day

The things I do to get filled

Would one more meal kill?


A freshmen college student

The future Athletic Trainer

Cheering my way to college

How far do I have to go?
