What is love most like? What is boredom, sadness, hate? The kids worked hard to compare their feelings to something concrete or metaphysical.
Tyson, I don't like frowns
The frown on your face makes
me cry. I wonder why you have a
frown as pretty as you are you're
not so much today. Your blond hair
is usually shiney and soft. Today,
ruff and crusted. I wonder why.
I really do.
Love is like you are a germ that
conects when they get married
Love is like rain that makes
a big globe of rain
Love is like a universe connecting
Love is like a war into
Love is like you are a
rabbit's ear tangled together

Boredom is like a bed that does not do anything
It is like a stick laying on the ground
in the middle of nothing It is like a pencil but
no paper or scissors. Boredom is like a
deck of cards and only one person. It is
like a computer that does not work
It is like a puddle of water in the middle of the
desert. It is like a white board but no marker.

I feel something is creeping
upon me and is taking
my arm. Whatever it is
it is scaring me to
death. And I want to
move somewhere else
but it is too strong.
