I Just Hope It's Lethal: Poems of Sadness, Madness, and Joy

Graphia/Houghton Mifflin, 2005 - 190 Seiten
The teenage years are a time filled with sadness, madness, joy, and all the messy stuff in between. Sometimes it feels that every day brings a new struggle, a new concern, a new reason to stay in bed with the shades drawn. But between moments of despair and confusion often come times of great clarity and insight, when you might think, like the poet Rumi, "Whoever"s calm and sensible is insane!" It is moments like these that have inspired the touching, honest, and gripping poems found in I Just Hope It"s Lethal: Poems of Sadness, Madness, and Joy. After all, what"s normal anyway?
This collection includes poems by Charles Bukowski, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, T. S. Eliot, Edgar Allen Poe, W. B. Yeats, Dorothy Parker, Jane Kenyon, and many more, including teenage writers and up-and-coming poets.
