Canyon Rage

by Khristie (age 15?)

Sometimes I feel as empty as a canyon.
Sometimes there is nothing to fill me up with good thoughts.
When I'm filled up with bad thoughts I wish there was a plug
          at the bottom of the canyon
that I can pull and only bad thoughts go down.
And I'd fill the canyon up with good thoughts
          and never pull that plug.
Plus keep a big net over the good thoughts
          so they stay in
and the bad ones stay out.
