    The sad part
    is the true reality.

    The screwed part
    is his thing had lost its bling.

    The hard part
    is how soft it had become.

    The bad part
    was how good it felt to

    sculpture ice
    and watch it melt.

    The sad part is that its the truth. And truth hurts. You cant deny it. What happened is gone. There is no way to change it or fix it. Its sad but you cam learn from it and not make it sad but instead a happy moment.

    The sad part is, no one will now. No one will know the great things that she did. No one will know that even though she had nothing, she still found a way to give. Not just give to the needy, but really give, to everyone and anyone. No one knew that she had been struggling. That she had been dying slowly, no one realized that it was her mind that had been killing her. She wasnt happy with her life. She had tried to change it, she tried to ask for help, but no matter how hard she tried, no one really knew how serious she was. Now she is gone, she slipped away slowly. The sad part is, she is gone, and no one will know how much she had been hurting.

    The sad part is that every time i save money for my car i end up spending it on presents. For my sisters, nephews, brother-in-laws, and parents.

    The sad part is..
    I’ve been through a lot and I’m happy about it. I’ve grown to become a better person than people thought I was gonna be. The real sad part is that no matter how many times I prove that I’m worth something people still doupt me.

    The sad part is, that sometimes I feel as though I’m really hated, and then there are other days were I feel as though people kinda like me because of my sarcasm and my funny jokes.

    The sad part is hearing the truth. Sometimes hearing the real truth hurts. But you have to hear it once. All you can do about it, is learn from it.

    The sad part is being surronded by idiots. That is what is so sad. There are a ton of people in high school who dont care about anyone or anything, they are just here by the law. I am literally surronded by people who could care less about school and education and that is just sad.

    The sad part is people care so much about society and they care so much about what people think of them. but they should really just focuse on themselves and not letting people bring them down. The sad part is that there are so many bullies that feel bad about themselves so they bully other people and ruin other peoples lives because they dont know how to control there lives or to feel good about themselves.

    The sad part is that it had to happen sometime. The people that you love so much will eventually leave you, they don’t stay here forever. They die but yoou just gatta stay strong and live your life without them.

    The sad part is that i actually think the situation is funny. sorry you fell on your face i know it hurts for you but for me that was a seirously needed tie of comedic relief….haha..

    the sad part is that i wasnt part of the prank and now im in jail for lying about the end of the world.

    The sad part is that the truth cant be changed but the truth can change people.

    The sad part is hearing the truth from people. But hearing the truth from people can make you a much better person.

    The sad part is I have become jaded to it. We walk through hell day in and out, but think nothing of it anymore. Even as we progress deeper into madness we think nothing of it.

    The sad part is that i kept procrastinating until the day it was due. I’m sitting here now trying to get extra credit because i was to lazy to ask what exactly i was supposed to write my final about. The sad part is i’m still procrastinating.

    The sad part is people don’t know the real me. They see what I’m like on the outside and judge me by that. If people would actually take the time to get to know me, they would probably end up liking me.

    The sad part is that people treat me like they can walk all over me, like they can do whatever they what and im not bothered. People dont see me cry. I hold it in. I make myself look strong so others cant have the satisfaction of hurting. So they cant know that they can walk all oer me, but yet they still do and I still “act” strong. Im doing a terrible job at acting. I just give in and let them have the satification because im tired.

      very strong voice with this piece.
      simplistic and honest.
      I was definitely able to connect with the character of the piece (non-fiction, fiction? doesn’t matter).

      Good job!
