of our once-colorful tapestry.
One by one they loosen
their hold on me, on you
until we fall away.
Away from what we knew,
what we hoped to be.
Our fate decided by one weak thread.
Rebellious Red is to blame.
No, twas Jealousy’s Green.
Throwing stones at heaped threads
Let them all lie. Yes, right there.
For someone else to sweep away.
Kristin Rath wrote her first novel at age seven, about a girl who wakes up in a world made of candy. Although it was never completed, it sparked her lifelong love for expressing herself through the written word. Kristin enjoys learning about diverse subjects, which is reflected in her varied education: She holds a BA in East Asian Studies and Japanese Language from Vanderbilt University, a Masters in Speech and Interpersonal Communications from New York University, and has studied Film and Television in New York City. While she is not likely to pursue additional degrees, she will never stop being a student of life.
