When he was in preschool,
And only in Music City.
He's all sharp angles, curly hair,
And geography bowls he won in fourth grade.
He's holding onto things and letting her go,
Brought up on family politics and Southern beliefs.
Our second grade Spanish teacher
Filmed Matthew's laugh and put it on Youtube.
He's seventeen missed calls and
Gary, Indiana, Gary Indiana, Gary Indiana
My home sweet home.
Matthew got all the solos in elementary school
And loves songs and musicals no one else
Has ever heard.
He didn't really want Mrs. Fortner to video his laugh,
So for ten minutes of trying, all she got was silence.
Some things, he thinks, should be private.
Matthew Minor has heard all the puns possible
When it comes to his last name.
He won the Outstanding Citizen award at our school-
A tie with his ex-girlfriend, Lindsey.
His religion is like his lifeline.
Some part of me will always believe he is the boy

was diagnosed with leukemia.
by three, her parents were carrying around a hairless baby,
and dreading each x they marked the calendar with.
but this is not a cancer story,
because by the age of four, she was cured
and she doesn't know why,
but she doesn't concern herself with the why.
allie martin is the best cheerleader i know,
just because she seems so happy to be up there
trying to make everyone else happy.
see, when she was in the hospital, her parents said,
she was the happiest patient there.
"it's allie, and i am here."
if there is one thing i cannot say about allie,
it is that she is not glad to be here.
in fifth grade, her boyfriend gave her a giant hershey's kiss
and she split it with her friends and the people
who didn't get anything for valentine's day.
she has this long blonde hair that's always perfectly straight,
no matter what the fashion. i've never seen her with short hair
and i don't think i ever will.

The happy girl that's always here
Has a very grim secret, I fear;
Her friendly smile is fake.
She has a heart that's big in size,
But her smile does not reach her eyes.
She tries to fool us with her lies,
Because her warm smile is fake.
It's become a daily task
To hide behind a grinning mask.
Oh my dear, I have to ask,
Why is your smile fake?
She's a girl that's pure of heart,
And she's been like that from the very start,
But her mind and soul have been torn apart,
Making her loving smile fake.
My little dear, I see the truth;
Countless others have tarnished your youth.
You're broken, my dear, and here's the proof:
Your pretty smile is fake.
Everyday she's in pain, you see,
But she tries her best to pass off glee...
I'm ashamed to say, that girl is me,
And my cheerful smile is fake.
