Faltering Mind

Guest Post by Kyleen Salais, junior at Franklin High School.

El Paso has and always will be the hometown that's shaped me to passionately follow my artistic passions of expression. Writing is the outlet that guides me back when I am lost in life, as does it maneuver my passions to keep going strong. I firmly believe that through grit and passion life can be a beautiful poetic story.

Recently papers have been sticking to my fingers as if I've glued my attachment to memories. So much evidence has drifted to my dirtied hands that I have good memories to cherish, but they keep slipping away. I can't remember anything.

It's as if I'm opening my eyes for the first time in this aged body, and the clock never stopped once for my racing mind.
