Brilliant Beings

Brilliant Beings

A Poem by Kayla K


You give me hope, in spite of everything. You show me love, even with so much pain.~ Between The Trees, You Give Me Hope

Light up, light up, as if you have a choice. Even if you cannot hear my voice, I'll be right beside you dear.~ Snow Patrol, Run

Brilliant beings,
touch my life.
Help me get through
all this strife.

*Beautiful and sure,
you're crying inside.
Not many know
all the things that you hide.
Keeper of secrets,
cover the scars.
You're sending your dreams,
up to the stars.
We met by chance.
Or was it fate?
Whatever it was,
I love you Kate*

~Alone and broken,
you never hide.
Within your heart,
emotions collide.
A friend of forever
No matter the fights.
Deep inside you,
a fire ignites.
Futures are dreary,
but here I will stay.
I love you Abbie~

^From elementary days,
to middle school hallways.
Friends until the end.
You, I shall defend.
You're strong and kind,
the truest you'll find.
Odyssey nights,
and StuCo fights.
When I look to my side,
It always is you.
There all along,
I love you Sean^

)You're scared
You're worried
You don't want
to become bullied.
Unpopular, alone.
Then, suddenly a change.
People accepted you,
and you were not strange.
A girlfriend, a love.
You're strong and true.
The only way to translate
all of these words is
I love you, Nate.(

_A mother, a fighter
and you came along.
Taught me some lessons,
and sang me your song.
Caring, determined.
Cheated and stabbed
right in the back.
Your teenage years
from you were nabbed
As you hold close your baby
please remember that
I love you Ali_

=Photos of truth,
and words of love.
The voice of hope,
throwing the lost
 a safety rope.
Helping the broken,
and helping me.
We both wish
the whole world would see.
Leave the liars
Join the dreamers.
I don't care if you have sin
It's the past to me.
I love you Robin=

+Funny and pretty
Insecure inside.
Thoughts of ugly,
worthless, dumb.
Others, you envy.
A writer is deep
within your heart.
I believe you
can do your part.
You'll be okay.
I know for sure.
I love you Tay.+

{True and forgiving
Face, always beaming.
A listening ear
never to judge.
When I push you away,
you won't even budge.
I scream hurtful words
yet you don't leave.
In me, you believe.
Running into combat,
fighting for me.
I love you Matt}

(A savior to me,
the garden unique.
Bring hope to others
when all seems so bleak.
Treated unfair,
when all that you do,
is show us you care.
Show me the pen
Teach me to bleed,
 how to succeed.
Giving support
to me for so long.
I love you Court)

Brilliant beings,
touch my life.
Help me get through,
all this strife.


I remember when we used to laugh about nothing at all. It was better than going mad. From trying to solve all the problems we're going through Forget 'em all
Cause on those nights we would stand and never fall. Together we faced it all.~Skillet, Those Nights

Author's Note

Kayla K
My dear friends, I can't express my love for each and every one of you enough. You've touched my life, and that's the only thing that matters.

Kate - We've only became friends this year, yet you know practically everything about me. With you, I can be myself, not some fake human being acting as if the world is a lovely place, because you and I can both agree that sometimes the world isn't so great. And when it's not so great, we have each other to rely on.

Abbie - You've gone through so much this year. Anger surges through you, and sometimes it's released on you. But I don't blame you. The cancer did not only hit your mom, it hit you too, maybe even harder. We've had more than our share of fights, but I still do love you. You're beautiful and strong, and I know you can get through this.

Sean - Best friends since first grade, we've never had any actual fights, besides arguments at student council (StuCo). We've fought through all the rumors and the tears. We were there for each other when Chris passed away. Four more years wandering these halls, and then we're off into the real words. You better stay in touch.

Nate - If I had to tell you anything, it would be that she loves you, she really does. No matter how paranoid you ever become, I know Kate loves you, and you'll be together forever. It doesn't matter to her if you're not "cool". Kate only cares about what's inside, and there's goodness inside of you.

Ali - You've been through so much, and my teenage mind cannot even fully comprehend it. One of the most important things you've showed me is that parents really can be good, because you're a good parent right now. Your children are lucky to have you as a mother.

Robin - You help people wherever you go. Some of the things you've done for your sister amaze me and show me that you really do care. You're a great person and writer, and you've inspired me quite a bit. Keep capturing moments throughout your life.

Tay - You're such a strong person, but your insecurities eat you alive. You want to change yourself to impress others, when nobody thinks you need to change. You're wonderful how you are, and someday you'll make your mark on this world. I know things are rough right now, but I will help you through it all, I promise.

Matt - I'm not part of your "group". Yet you've taken me in and been there for me. Even when I criticize you about idiotic things, you forgive me immediately when I apologize, even if I don't deserve it. You're an amazing person who I'm glad to have in my life.

Courtney - There's a million things I can say about you, and you know a lot of them. You helped me get through a tough time in my life, just with your words. You inspired me to write, which ended up saving me from myself. You've taken me under your wing, showing me the world and it's wonders. You are my savior. Thank you.

An extra note to Sean, Kate, and Nate - We're all being attacked with grenades of drama. It's tough, but we're going to make it. We have to. Who cares what the others say? The four of us are best friends, and we always will be.

I'm a cyclone of myself, a caterpillar delight still finding my wings. A balloon stuck up in the clouds, no one can bring me down from my high. Shattered into pieces, be careful when you pick .. more..
