I stand here, withered by elements I can’t comprehend,
My feet are stationed here, and my feet are not able to move.
I watch the gardener as he prepares the grove that he’s prepared to tend,
My feelings are withdrawn even though I don’t have much to prove.

The overgrown patch of vines have swarmed all around my handles,
Struggling to budge, even though my freedom seems certainly futile.
I stay closed unless needed, but stay appreciative since I’m still my owner’s mantle,
Although, the natural elements are still nothing but vile.

I ponder my existence, what’s the point when I have no impact,
I contemplate if my role even matters, but the answer is right there.
The thought comes up each day, but I have to stick to the fact,
I may not be everyone’s entrance, but just being one seems quite fair.

WJPS News switched from a monthly newspaper (named The Blazer) to an online convergent media site. Now, working with the school’s broadcast, The Highlight and the yearbook The Byline, we are hoping to bring the information for students to one place.
