My Brother by Annie Roth
2015 Walk Award
By Annie Roth (11th grade)

My Brother

Conquer conversations as if one owns the world
Hunger for more gluten free rice cereal in his bowl
Sleep is no longer an option when he has
A girlfriend
Breathe heavy and a passion for fitness
You abandon your plan with your family
To be with a friend who puts you down
Applaud those who have just tried
Hide a smile as he lies for the 50th time about
Liking a girl in the second grade
You gaze at the stars as if they are hundred dollar bills
. . . . .
