I prefer to call it a choice, because I like to be different. Maybe that's why most of my friends are oftentimes five years younger than I am. Though it doesn't matter to me, I relate to them better than the popular people my age anyway.
As a nineteen year-old, I prefer video games and LEGOs to skateboards and cars. But today I'll be putting aside my electronic entertainment devices in favor of some good old fashioned quality time with Mother Nature.
At least I hope.
Walking into the hallway with my bags packed, I hear mom and dad 'debating' at the other end of the house. I already know what it's about.
“Chillax mom.” I stride into the hallway, trying to radiate some sort of confidence. “I got this.”
“Do you?” She looks back, s

Chapter 3: Conflict.
I woke up and looked around, my head was throbbing. Ugh!, what happened? I wonder how long Ive been asleep. I mumbled to myself. Oh, only about an hour or so. Oh, ok thanks. I said, all of a sudden I realized that someone was talking to me. I whirled around. Whos there! Show yourself!
I heard chuckling, and looked over at Latias and she broke into hysteria. HAHAHAA! Oh, you should see yourself right now! HAHA! I heard that voice in my head! And it seemed like it was coming from Latias! Wh-whats going on?! Do I have telepathy or something now? What did you do?! I asked, Yes, yes you do. Latias was still chuckling. Well how did I get it? She pointed to my chest. What? I looked down at the hole in my shirt and saw the crystal embedded into my chest. WHOA! HEY WAIT A MINUTE! WHAT DID

Chapter 25: Project B.T.E.P.
Latias and I ran around playing all day. Though it didnt feel right to me. I felt as if I should be somewhere, helping someone. I felt guilty for playing when I had a job to do, a purpose to fulfill.
Latias must have noticed this, cause she stopped me. Brad, whats wrong? I just looked down.
I dont know Latias. I said. I feel like Im shirking my duties, my responsibilities as the Guardian of Crystoldia in doing just that. Guarding Crystoldia. Not to mention we just left the Resistance there by themselves. And now were playing around while their lives are in danger.
Latias held put her hands on either side of my face and looked into my eyes. You are not shirking your duties. You did what was right for your family, what you promised to do. You ca

Oh my gosh! You did?! Latias was excited beyond belief by now. Whoa there! Easy Latias! I said as I pulled my hands out of hers before her bobbing up and down excitedly ripped them off.
What was it like?! Did you find anything?! Was there anybody there?! Tell me! I just stared at her. What in the world has gotten into you Latias?! Ive NEVER seen you this excited.
She slowed down and finally took a breath. Well, I just wanted to know what Crystoldia was like. She said. All Ive ever known about it was rumors and the tiny, not very informative tidbits that have been passed down over time.
I see. I mused. Well, I can say it was shiny. VERY shiny! I then realized it was a mistake to tell her that. Her eyes grew big and th

The next day I woke up and was greeted by the sound of WHOOOOO! Yes Im awake Latias. I said, as she promptly started cooing and nuzzling me. "This is so cool! Shes like a really big pet! I looked at her again. No, theres no way that I can call her a pet. Shes a friend, she doesnt act like a pet. Shes just acts way too human to be a pet. I thought as I looked her wounds over. Wow! Youve healed a lot for only one night! I exclaimed as I examined her bandages. I bet pretty soon that youll be able to fly again!
She stared at me blankly for a second and then promptly broke the silence with, LAHT-IAS!! Well, my third day of camping and Ive already made a very interesting friend. It suddenly struck me that perhaps I wouldnt be able to keep her with me. Whatll happen when she

I shrugged. Its okay. Youve probably been busy Wait, how could you be busy? You cant even go anywhere. Latios chuckled a bit.
That is true. He said. But that doesnt mean that I cant gain information from the Guidecrystal. I was immediately listening.
What?! Do you know more about it?! I was probably acting like a small child when they wanted candy.
Yes. He responded. I have been gathering what information that I can from the Guidecrystal. And have come to a conclusion. If I had feet I would have been tapping them impat

As I slept I began to listen for the voice to tell me something else. (I expected yet another aggravatingly mysterious quote.) But it never came. I just had my regular dreams.
When I woke up I looked over at Latias, once again she was right beside me snoozing happily. I smiled but then remembered that I hadnt had the voice tell me anything important like it usually did.
I wonder why the voice didnt appear? I thought to myself. I know I havent finished my quest. Have I?
I sat there and thought about what all I had to do. And thats when I realized that I had never actually been given a job to do. I mean, I had been shown the supposed Crystoldia a few times in a dream. But for the most part, I had basically commissioned myself to help Latias as my purpose.

Chapter 24: Revertion.
Matt, Jared and I contemplated an attack plan late on into the night. And as a result, I discovered that Latias wasn't particularly fond of sitting around planning.
Are you ever going to finish this?? She asked, sounding quite bored. I sighed and looked over at her. Yes Latias, we just have to figure out a good way to surprise the P.A.O. That part is essential if we plan on beating them- I noticed Matt and Jared watching me curiously.
I rolled my eyes. We can communicate telepathically. I said. I was responding to her question about how much longer that we'd be spending doing this.
Matt just slowly nodded. Riiigghht... Once again, it was time for the eye rolling. Well if Latias wants us to stop, then I suppose we could. Jared said.

I yelled out as I shot up from my sleep, sweating heavily. The visions beginning to fade. Then, right on schedule. I started shaking.
Then weeping. I sat for what seemed like hours, just sobbing on top of my bed. I finally slapped some sense into myself and just sniffed now and then.
I got up and hovered out of my room. I looked around, the soft pulsating of the crystals spread throughout Crystoldia almost seeming to speak to me.
I sighed and flew out of my room. Three years, three years it had been since Latias Since I fulfilled the prophecy.
And almost every night so far had been a sleepless one. Her memory haunting me in my dreams. Her eyes always reaching for me. I had tossed and turned, waking up violently from the all too realistic dreams.

HollowIn the land surrounded by majestic sightsHollow in Free Verse More Like This
Snow-shown mountains never did fall to the sunlight
Sunlight clouds washed over the pale skies
Until many did realize
Their fate had chosen for the Hollows to rise;
Only few that knew what powers they had,
The Hollows slid silently through the night.
Screams and cries rippled through the howling wind
Though none could be heard by the mortal men,
Whom had never set eyes to watch
As the Hollows devoured
Everything they could find.
Day by day did the Hollows pass,
But no one was left to stand and fight
Their way through the time
That was no longer left to them to fight back;
Only two Hollows were there to fight
And only two Hollows were there left.
Once upon their land's demise,
The heroes rose up from their lonely lives
To sentence these Hollows their last goodbyes;
Heroes known to none at all,
But fought with pride never seen by mankind.
Of many elements there were within these heroes
None of which wielded
The same as any other:

is always on my mind,
speaking things she never spoke
until I break apart;
Falling as the weakling she made me,
like a bird on fire,
she will never be alive to me again
One who causes pain without knowing,
one who refuses for me to sleep at night;
always forcing my joy to flee
and hide behind that vacant mask
where I can only be made more insecure,
where I feel dead like a drowning dove;
Lauren who kills me every night,
...never alive...never alive...
Shadow of HatredShe is the devil through my eyesShadow of Hatred in Free Verse More Like This
just strays within the shadow of my hatred...
Forced against my will
I've been turned into a demon
She is a monster whose hands unhinge my mind
Let in me be made an ocean of tears
in exchange for my somber-filled memories
I can't let go of my miserable past
the path that leads to my icy heart
Shadow of hatred
she remains in the form of a nightmare
a hideous beast like a flaming bird
which strangles the dove as it drowns in the sea
a sea of tears and long hidden memories
My hatred so strong and a freedom out of reach
she is the shadow of my hatred
refusing to let me sleep...
LifelessWe hang off the edges of life;Lifeless in Free Verse More Like This
We search for a salvation,
a place where we are accepted,
not trash to be annihilated,
not to be cast into darkness,
never to be abandoned by our light;
For every darkness there is a light,
for every light is sorrow and loss
and hope and death;
Lifeless we are made by the world,
invisible are our scars,
the unseen marks of their hatred...
Lifeless we are made by the pain,
homeless we are in our souls;
Let it slip away as we dream about our days
in careless agony and truth
ResilienceYou cry yourself to sleep at night thinking that no one will ever noticeResilience in Free Verse More Like This
You wish you were more than this broken child,
this broken person inside
when yet you’ve overcome so much pain inside;
There’s no running away from a broken childhood
no matter how adult you have been made and become;
I too am broken,
so shattered inside
My resilience has gotten me so far in this life
I grew up with a flaming beast of a mother
whose actions shall forever leave me scarred;
I grew up in a world with a bunch of thrown stones
from children whose wish was my very death;
My family stood by and made the pain worse,
but my resilience comes from the inside not out;
My screams were silent for many years and I had no one to talk to,
You say you cry yourself to sleep at night?
I did that too;
I cried every night from when hell started all the way to seventh grade
and nobody ever noticed;
I broke up fights on a daily basis
and I brought home the scars to prove it
but even that wasn

looking for the light in the cave,
but I'm stranded,
thrown away by society.
Trapped in the bliss of solitude,
Lost in the meaning of life;
Searching for an answer,
Why am I here,
Stranded in the coldness of life.
Trapped in loneliness,
Seeking out a way to run,
Run away from humanity;
Let me starve in the wilderness.
Trapped I can't escape,
Lost I can't be found;
There is no light,
There are no answers;
Humanity does not care for me.
Crystal ClearDon't you think by now I should know how much you hate me?Crystal Clear in Free Verse More Like This
Don't you realize that you're not the only one?
They can't stand me,
they all hate me;
It's as clear as the crystals around your wrists,
your hatred is as dark as bloodstone
my sorrow is like aquamarine
nay, it is like the dark blue of the night sky;
It's all I know how to feel,
this hate and anger,
this sorrow and misery;
Don't you know I'm an unloved soul,
a shadow on the wall?
Don't you get the facts?
I'm hated by you all!
No one cares about me,
no one wants me around;
I've been despised my whole life
Can't you tell?
Can't you see your own hatred
through those glamorous jewels,
or are the crystals you wear
just as dark as you?
MoonlightWalking in the moonlightMoonlight in Free Verse More Like This
They noticed it as the clouds drifted across
The moon's pale surface
Where its shadow was seen but barely.
They watched over the creature
To be sure none would find it,
And discard its weak flesh.
Few knew of its existence,
So I went on the hunt to find it:
The Hollow of the Moonlight.
Silver were his eyes,
Gleaming like the light of the moon,
Yet skin so pale,
It was as white as ever seen.
The Hollow screamed silently to itself,
Cursing its own existence
When no one would plead
For the creature of the night.
I watched in secret as the Hollow's life was ending
In a way no man could ever wish
For any creature to last through;
In the way of its death,
Shadows cried out as the Hollow faded.
Many who knew just knelt by his grave,
Cursing themselves for never helping this creature
Survive this horrid life.
I was the Unknown,
The seeker of their keeping;
The Hollows would act when no one else
Knew of their existence
That was kept a secret to all
Society's PesticideLifeless faces, painful liesSociety's Pesticide in Free Verse More Like This
Vacant stares watch my demise
A life of imperfection all of the time
Pelt me with stones, whip me with sticks
You never know when someone's clock will die
Tick tock, tick tock
Watch the time fly by
Pass up the chances to fit in with life
I am an invisible child, a discarded soul
I am a pesticide to society no matter the toll
Am I the 'cide on the ground
That repels society from wherever I stand?
Is it who I am
Or how I act
That becomes the 'cide to all of humanity?
Deadly chimes, endless ties
I repel all life
Given up on society, incapable to cope
Always hiding from my predators
Always clinging to my dying hopes
Lock me away in a freezing cage
Mine for my blood against my skin
Dig down deep for whatever remains
I am a silent angel sent away to my death
I am society's pesticide
Deprived of the right
To just fit in...
Living In DeathDead and empty,Living In Death in Free Verse More Like This
Hollowed out inside,
Rotting flesh under fresh,
Cold and dead inside;
Locked in a cell,
Dying in my mind,
Invisible to the world,
A ghost of pain in their eyes;
Scooped out insides,
Not allowed to cry,
Not allowed to show the pain,
Always just pushed aside;
Left in the dark,
Left in a graveyard,
No place where I belong;
Dead and empty,
Cold, but still here,
Dead, but still alive;
Always crying on the inside,
Not allowed to show the pain,
Just cold and dead inside...

This world wouldn't care.
This world doesn't want me.
So why am I here?
All I've seen is sorrow.
All I've known is sorrow.
All I've felt is sorrow.
Nobody cares if I, a girl were killed.
Time is short but longer than my life.
My time is coming to an end.
But no one beyond myself.
No one knows about my pain.
Fore no one cares if I am in pain.
I'm nothing but a mistake.
I was the first experiment of three.
But I am broken, a failed experiment.
I'm too far from repair.
I'm too old to fix.
The parts cannot be found.
I cry at night but no one hears.
All they hear is silence.
Silence among all the screams.
Silent tears are what they see.
When there is so much more.
A soul, slowly dying away.
Soon to not exist.
Soon to be a bad memory.
One that they're glad is gone.
A thing to not want.
A thing to be happy about when gone.
Something no one ever wanted.
When I'm gone they'll be happy.
When I'm gone they'll celebrate.
Celebrate the death of a monster.
I am ruined by
Changing Who I AmI wonder who I am,Changing Who I Am in Free Verse More Like This
I look in the mirror,
No matter what I do,
The image never looks clearer.
The Bruises that lie across my face,
Seem to get darker each day,
The broken nose not showing who I was,
The injuries don't seem to go away.
Not once have I seen myself,
Without what the world has seen,
A girl who doesn't speak her mind,
A shy, quiet teen.
Someone who always worked to hard,
One who never learned to fight,
That would just write what I could,
And spent my time being up all night.
Now I am changing who I am,
Becoming more of an individual person,
I'll become who I can,
Even if my days worsen.
I'm going to be different,
No matter how many doors I must ram,
To become someone who is really me,
I'll make myself who I am.
Darkness to LightA shadow forms around you,Darkness to Light in Free Verse More Like This
Like a heavy night sky,
The tears that you cry,
Are like the rain that falls,
The voice that has been quiet,
Is like the gentle winds,
The dreams that you have had,
Are like the storms that blast in,
You're whispers that are spoken,
Are like a bird flying off,
A hand touches your shoulder,
Like a support of a rock on a mountain,
The voice is so gentle,
Like angels to you,
The darkness seems to vanish,
Like a wonderful sunrise,
The tears begin to calm,
Like a gentle river flowing,
The voice that begins to laugh,
Like a chorus singing,
The dreams begin to calm,
Like a relaxing beach.
Darkness takes hold of one side,
Like an angry storm,
But light can help you be yourself,
Like a relaxing sunset.

Sitting on my dresser,

And put it on.
This last object,
Is my whole life,
The mask that I,
Truly hide behind.

Be proud of who I am,
Be able to get on the dance floor,
And say "This is my Jam."
Bust out in a few moves,
Not caring what others thought,

Not minding if I get caught.
Express myself in a special way,
By splattering paint on the ground,
Listen to what I want to,
Even if my music is a bunch of sound.
Say I love you,
And not be rejected,
Let others say what they want,
And not be affected.
Be prepared world,
Get out of my way,
Because I bet you're not ready,
For what I'm about to say.
I'm making my move,
Showing who I am,
I'm not hiding anymore,
So my fears, just scram!
The PhotographA memory of the past,The Photograph in Free Verse More Like This
Lying on a table,
The color faded by time,
The edges burnt by life.
It's been neglected,
Left to soon be stored away,
Far in the back of the mind
And for new memories to take it's place.
When that memory of the past,
Time has finally come,
Picked up and carried away,
And lied in a box for a time being.
Memories do not know the test of time,
And when time comes for it,
A match will light,
And they will burn to ash.
For new memories to come,
Others must be wiped away,
The ashes will be washed away,
And new memories take their place.
This Is What Goodbye is LikeToday I looked at the moon,This Is What Goodbye is Like in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What did I see,
The fading of the light,
Going behind the clouds,
The silent night was becoming attune,
Why did I not go into glee,
Why did my face not go bright,
The clouds had formed a shroud.
I watch my tears fall,
As I walk my final steps,
Each step I take is like the last,
No matter how hard I try my best,
Because of this world I feel small,
My clothing made of reps,
Maybe I just asked,
Asked too much and became a pest.
I start to slow down,
My body not feeling the same,
It was way too late for me to pray,
Maybe it was best that I cry,
The lack of air and I began to drown,
Reality told me my emotions couldn't be tamed,
As the river swept me away,
I knew that this was my goodbye.
A Lover's HandHe held his wife close,A Lover's Hand in Free Verse More Like This
Trying to protect her from the cold,
Shielding her from the icy snow,
He whispered in her ear, everything he was told.
"Papa said when I was young,
That it could feel like you've lost everything,
That you can feel alone,
Bust as long as you got the ring,
You can hold your lover's hand,
No matter how much the ice bites,
No matter how much you want to close your eyes,
To never let the living frights,
Never let them take hold,
As long as you can hold your lover's hand,
You know that your love,
Is way stronger then a strand."
He held her closer,
Their bodies freezing cold,
They held each others hands,
And died in a perfect mold.
The Mirror of MyselfI look in the mirror,The Mirror of Myself in Free Verse More Like This
That has been tarnished,
By my thoughts,
Making there be smudges,
Across what use to be a clear surface,
There are cracks and breaks,
That have been made,
From the lies I've heard,
A smearing of blood,
Across the smudged surface,
Adds the fears I've been through,
I've dealt with and survived,
Yet the corner is missing a piece,
This is from my life's hardships,
It takes me a few seconds,
To realize something I hadn't,
My own refection was mixed,
Bloodied by the mirror,
Not to be what it should be,
A perfect refection of myself,
But it's a mask,
A lie that I hide behind,
Staring right back at me,
That no matter what I do in life,
There is a different part of me,
Always watching me,
Always waiting to get out,
To replace what I am,
With the mask,
The mirror image of me,
The mirror of my life,
Staring right back at me,
I touch my refection,
Then the mirror comes crashing down,
I then know the truth,
My life just crashed down on me.
Shards of LiesEvery where I walk,Shards of Lies in Free Verse More Like This
Is shards of glass,
From the lies people spread,
They cut into me feet,
Making me bleed,
Soon I become infected,
The shards tearing me apart,
From the insides of my deepest parts,
They destroy every word I say,
Every word I speak,
Changing it around,
These are from society around me,
They curse me,
And tarnish me,
With the glass shards,
That they leave behind,
And every time I try,
To pull them out,
They get dug in deeper,
To a point that they'll stay forever,
So I'll walk across these shards,
Because I can't rid myself of my own,
Not stopping to try again,
For these shards are now apart of me,
Writing the pages of my life,
Being a liar like everyone else,
For these shards are stuck there,
Just like yours are also.

And go back to when you met,
When you fell to the ground,
And were helped by one person,

Had bonded you for light,
The begining of a friendship,
Friendship is written in stone,
And not promised to stay forever,
yet we believe it will,
You pray you both can hold each others hand,
Before the end,
The fighting soon begins,
With the arguments,
Then you finally realize,
Friendship even bites.
Blind ManIn the eyes of the blind manBlind Man in Free Verse More Like This
Who sees no color
Who sees naught of his right eye
I'm dying without realizing
I'm losing my hope
But nothing ever gave me hope from the start
As I fall down this shallow road to nowhere
Asking over and over again
The very question that rots my core
The same thing I've been asked countless times
"Are you even supposed to exist?"
And my answer remains the same:
I don't know...
RespireWhat is it like to last with one's sightRespire in Free Verse More Like This
When I remain locked in this silent misery
While the salted world is free to respire
I'm not how I was made to be
Yet I can't be the one to be set free
Many suffer worse than me
But they have hope while I can't see
The future is bleak for some
And as for me:
I remain locked in this half seen land
To breath means nothing if you can't see
But I stay alive and see my dreams
Unfold and bend and break apart
As I remain motionless like a rock
Am I even meant to be
The salted world keeps its air
While the wonderful serenity hides from me
Just answer me this:
Is respire right for me

Where all of the beasts are free to roam
And passions meet with their owner's dreams

A hope for everyone to breathe
A world where everyone sees
Is what we all desire
When the world fades away
And all that is left is free to respire...

They don't understand what pain there is it causes
Those humans as they say
Just control our lives that tear us away
They say they want what's best
But they don't know for sure what that is
They say it'll help us
But they don't know what help is
All they know is the seperation they bring us
As this silent night goes by so fast
And the silence grows as we're taken farther away from each other
And the silent seperation only lasts while we don't know of its existance
I cry every night
Hoping they'll have a change of mind
But I know all too well
That what they say is their mind
And will never be changed...
SufferingWe find ourselves sufferingSuffering in Free Verse More Like This
In this hate-bound world
In a place once frosted with joy
That is now long past its lifetime
Earth drowns in its poison
Waiting for the sun to explode
As a day begins
So does a new life
As the night draws near
So does the poison of its inhabitants
Fear spreads like the air we breathe
Hate emerges all around the once salted world
A life of suffering is the world we are trapped within
Hide behind a monster of wisdom
And see your future unfold
We monsters are the tools of your satisfaction
And we alone shall cease to exist in this place
A once pleasant world has evolved into a nightmare
A once peaceful place has finally died
As have we monsters
The ones who keep suffering...
DyingWe remain hiden in the caveDying in Free Verse More Like This
A place of no emotion
We drown within its lake
Struggling for our freedom
Only until the day we finally learn the truth
Its too late for their forgiveness
And they will never accept us as we are
Humans against the monsters
The humans think they'll win every time
But it is time for the monsters' say within the useless conflict
We are beings of this planet with all of the same rights
And even though we are despised by these "people"
Us monsters reach out towards our freedom
Here we are in our own place
Running and hiding and trying to break free
Dead ends arrive in our path of success
But we just climb over those walls to a respiring end
The world is not the place it used to be
But no one ever said things would be that easy
A world once loved that now only hates
We seek the truth as to why we are here
Us monsters who hide in this deep dark cave
Our sorrow is eternal and our fate is everlasting
And we, the monsters, will just keep dying...
NightmareI am a nightmare to them allNightmare in Free Verse More Like This
They scream my given title through my empty sleep
They call me the monster as I slip away
I'm slipping away to my peaceful resting place
They hate me so and I've never known why
Such a monster so hated could even exist
A half blind monster sees nothing of the world
Nothing in color and nothing but dying hopes
Let go of the painful thoughts imprisoning your soul
Let it drain from your being
Memories are just illusions
A painful past is not a current reality
Unless one is asleep and never wakes up
The pain of the hatred is all too familiar
But there are none that truly care to help us monsters
Speak for the present and look towards the future
A nightmare can start
But so can a dream...

It would be nice to see this rotting place
Turn into the salted world it was
Before us "monsters" came to take its place
I hear your voices all around
But you're the ones who need to see us
We are the hated
We are the monsters as you say
And I believe that we creatures hated so
Are nothing to the world
But forgotten angels...
