So much depends upon
the small white boat
floating in the ocean
lying beside green seaweed
Painted with a red stripe by a young boy

He sits on the decaying wood now
His bones ache
As he rows out to the harbor
To meet a school
of sparkling fish

Goes the old net
Into the slippery herd
of fluttering scales
To catch the meal of the day

John grade 8

So much depends


majestic purple


capped with white


against an orange


Sara, grade 8

So much depends


This short written


About a little

Kendal, grade 8

The Artiste

So much depends upon

the dark charcoal pencils

smudging the white paper

by the passionate artist

Music From The Heart

So much depends upon

my fingers flying across

the alabaster keys

playing my life story

Forever Gliding

So much depends upon

smelling the repugnant chlorine

hearing the water churning

then fluidly diving in

The Backpack

So much depends upon,
The small red backpack,
Containing the winning ticket,
The backpack I lost.


Staring into the cold,
Unforgiving mirror,
Expecting the worst,
I sighed,
Content with what is seen.


So much depends upon,
Answering, I tell them,
What they want to hear.
They leave satisfied.
By: Maggie P.
By Tyler M. 5th grade

So much depends upon
people, life, trust, destruction
Does it matter ? No!
Just life matters to you.
