Ninth Grade
By Sydney Blondell

Hospital beds,
taking medication,
and failed IV sticks
sums up life at 15.

Having friends,
going to parties,
and study sessions
were distant dreams.

Traveling all across the state
to see new specialists
and being isolated from everyone
was the unfortunate reality for the young teen.

Going on road trips with
tons of friends,
having a curfew,
and being the life of the party
was for another lifetime.

Hospital beds,
taking medication,
and failed IV sticks,
was life at 15.
