Snow Scene As a snowflake emerged from the sky, a tear trickled down my face.While the snowflake brushed past a tree branch, and kissed the ground, the tear made its way into my mouth. I could feel its taste. Bitter, and full of resentment. That was exactly the way I was feeling at that point.My whole life was breaking down. The words that started this whole web of disaster kept ringing in my head, over and over, like a broken record. "I hate you; go on your stupid date and leave me alone!" The scene kept flashing through my head in a blur. I recalled my dad sadly stepping out the house, about to go on his date, the first one since my mother had died in a car accident 6 months ago.

I was an only child, so she would be living with me until my father regained his consciousness. I looked out the window again, and watched many snowflakes fall from the sky, and melt into the everlasting blanket of white below. Oh, how I wished my problems would just melt away, just as the snow had. This whole mess was entirely my fault.
