Ten years ago, Mekenzie Larsen was an awkward freshman struggling to make friends. Writing was not only an escape but a way to vent. Here is a short collection of poems written between 2001-2002 that best showcases the author's feelings during that first year of high school as well as her budding love for angst, the color red, and mermaids.
