Beaver Lake Middle School annually holds a poetry slam, and students in Karen Bach’s humanities class did exceptional work on the topic “My Life as a Teenager,” with the help of a visiting professional poet. The poems provide a unique insight into the adolescent world of middle school.

Lost in a Labyrinth

By Adrienne Hubbard


Lost in a labyrinth.

A never ending maze.

Looking for a way out.


Being pulled in every direction,

and still not knowing which path to take.


Not knowing what to think,


or feel.


Becoming trapped

in the world they’ve created for us.


We still continue, though,

knowing what is ahead.

Imagining the future.

Our future.


Like an invisible force,

that hope pulls us.

Until the day,

that we can escape the labyrinth.
