Freeze

by Chelsea Wozniak, 14, Blythwood, South Carolina

I just want to freeze the world,
Freeze the pain that blinds my eyes,
Freeze the tears that fall from my face,
Freeze the time, so I can start anew.
Everywhere I go, people stare.
People point and people laugh.
I just want to freeze them,
Freeze so I can run.
I just want to freeze the world,
To close the arms that do not welcome me.
I want to freeze the smiling faces around me
So I can stare at them before they vanish.
I want to freeze the misery I feel,
Unfreeze the frozen crystals hanging from the trees,
So they can live, and run down the bark,
So they can feed the grass, and maybe something will grow.
