Dear Sylvan Hills; By: Ashley Tosch

Dear Sylvan Hills,

                I haven’t been here very long. For what’s felt like 4 years has only been 2. When I first moved here, I hated it. I missed my old life too much to really enjoy my new beginning here. I was alone, frightened by your size and lack of space. You were my prison.

                But as the leaves changed, so did my heart. You became less a prison, and more a place of joy. I’ve made friends here that I will never forget, and have made even more memories. I have been a part of plans, big and small, that have caused me to love the place I’m at, as well as the woman I now am.

                You have urged me to follow my dreams and to love myself as I am, which is perfectly imperfect. You’ve opened many doors for me which were, at one time, closed. You have been a major part in helping me find, and alter, myself into the person I am now.

                So, I thank you, Sylvan Hills, for taking away my chains, and bringing me home.

On this Day; By Ashley Tosch

On this day,

The sun is almost too bright,

But yet I see you clearly.

My thoughts are with you

Through the night,

But my heart shall miss

You clearly.


On this day, when your eyes met mine,

 I couldn’t help but wonder…

How those eyes have been changed

With time,

And how my eyes were being

Cast under.


On this day,

Your hand in mine,

Nothing could be sweeter.

Until we meet again, in time,

Where our love is so much
