Alicia Soto The ticket to success, Is unlike all the rest, Of all the plans it is the best, And leaves no reason to have to guess.:  Alicia Soto The ticket to success, Is unlike all the rest, Of all the plans it is the best, And leaves no reason to have to guess. Slide4:  It is the path that one must take, Through rain or shine or threat of quake, Through spirits may fall or even break, The rewards at the end are often great. To avoid the wrath of what may come, To avoid the pitfalls and not come undone, To deal with life and learn not to run, The ticket to success can not be outdone. Slide5:  To Success Slide6:  My ticket to success in school, is to get good grades and follow the rules, I want to go to Kutztown university to be a teacher and get my degree, Teaching is the way to go how we learn and what to know, For all the people who might give in you need to keep going and you will win. Emily Shoemaker :  Emily Shoemaker Slide8:  If you want to be successful You have to live and learn From mistakes you have made And know what you can learn This ticket you need Is the one you have to work for In time of tough and greed It is the one you need more Does it look like your learning is done Or is it just the beginning of a world of fun? Slide9:  Gabby Barbera Life is sometimes luxurious It is also sometimes rough. I want a ticket out of town Where life is not tough. There is no end But there are new beginnings. For in life you strive to have fun But there are always clouds and never any sun. Slide10:  Life is like a baseball game There can be way too many innings. But when life comes to an end You wish you had more beginnings. As I sat down on the desolate train Clutching the ticket I had obtained My life would never be the same After I has won the lottery It was a dream come true For once I was the one luck came to One moment calm the next crazy It was all very hazy People now acting funny Trying to ask me for money In the distance I hear a tick-tock As I awake with a start as another day starts with the alarm clock Was it a dream or a preview of the future In my hand I had a ticket :  As I sat down on the desolate train Clutching the ticket I had obtained My life would never be the same After I has won the lottery It was a dream come true For once I was the one luck came to One moment calm the next crazy It was all very hazy People now acting funny Trying to ask me for money In the distance I hear a tick-tock As I awake with a start as another day starts with the alarm clock Was it a dream or a preview of the future In my hand I had a ticket Happiness:  Happiness Kristy Conklin Happiness:  Happiness My golden ticket to life is happiness, I use it to get through my day, But even when the golden gate is closed, I can easily close my eyes and pray, I’ll pray for a smile, a giggle, or a laugh, And soon the worst is split in half, My golden ticket is my support, It takes away all my wrath, This ticket puts me on a better path, A path of hope, with a convincing curve, That everything will be better soon, This ticket just puts everything in tune. Slide15:  “The Ticket” Nicole Cassar He waited for the train As he tried to run away form the pain As he thought of the ticket to a new life With the fear of what would be left behind Or what he might find In the road of a new beginning As the train arrived Slide16:  He took one last wave and said one last goodbye. As the train arrived He took one last wave and said one last goodbye. He boarded the train with sort of a smile. Good-bye my old friends I’ll see you in awhile Slide17:  A ticket can take you many places To do new things and see new faces It is a way out of an unwanted situation A paper source of inspiration For some it’s a way to take a vacation And arrive at a new destination Some need a ticket to save their life A way out of struggle, pain, and strife Tickets aren’t always for such a serious cause Take a second to think and pause Say you’re driving too fast on the highway one night There are no cars or people in sight You press the gas and your speed will rise Not knowing there is a hidden surprise “Ticket” Steven Benner Slide18:  A siren sounds and lights start to flash If I get a ticket my parents will kick my ash I accelerate to elude the cop I have to get away, I can’t stop I was pulling away sure to prevail But when the tank’s on E, it’s easy to fail I jump out of the car to escape on foot Soon in handcuffs I was put So instead of a ticket I was thrown in jail With no car, no food, or money for bail So as you can see tickets can be good or bad Vacation tickets make you glad, while speeding tickets make you mad So you decide if it makes you happy or want to spit It depends on what you make of it. Slide19:  Life has never been easy for any one of us, Matter of fact it’s taken breath and love out of everyone of us. Pain is universal And just like the struggle It takes different shapes, No matter what you do you can never escape, Life is hard enough We don’t need to discriminate, So don’t generate and misplace your hate. If you do you’ll end up at the wrong gate. Now no one in this world wants to be in Hell, “Ticket” David Williams Slide20:  Whether I will be or not, I cannot tell. We all live life hoping for a greater being, But in the end of life who do we end up seeing? I hope it’s my loved ones, who went before me, I want to see all who loved and adored me. The pain of life is rewarded with death, We gain everything times two of what we left. The greater you do and the better you are, The greater is your ticket and it will take you far. So strive and reach for your ticket Because you never know if it will be too late until you get it. Slide21:  Rejuvenate yourself. Travel across the world. Sea to sea, Experience all. Live in the city, swim with the sharks. Dance to your song. Believe. Find your peace of mind. Meditate. Follow your heart. Walk on hot coals, move to the country. Skydive, take a road trip. Smile, love your life. The ticket to paradise is within you. Discover it. “Ticket” Emily Thiel Slide22:  What is the ticket I am in search of? It may be a plane ticket to paradise It may be a bus ticket to the beach Or it may be a concert ticket to the Beach Boys But it’s not any of those kinds of tickets… I’m one of millions in line for a special kind of ticket …One to the world With this ticket, I can live my dreams I will be happy and successful I will have made a difference in someone’s life And I will be the best person I can be. My ticket to the world will be expensive But from what I hear, it’s worth every penny. My ticket to the world is My college education and diploma. “Ticket” Anne Dewalt What a Ticket means to me…:  What a Ticket means to me… Roman Luknicki Grade 10 Slide24:  A ticket lost in life Forever closes the gates of eternity So here I stay In this dark, damp, fiery place Trapped here by my sins Which were committed in vain I have made my amends Because I have realized this is my home To Leave:  To Leave Alex Weir Grade 10 Slide26:  Get away To get away from life For just a little Melt away Ticket to the horizon Ticket to beyond Ticket to get me father Ticket to get somewhere Ticket to leave Ticket from problems Ticket to get away Ticket to… This is it The way out Key to somewhere, anywhere Anywhere but here The way to escape Escape from life Leave for a little Problems behind The ticket to go Go somewhere new To find a new place To find a new home My Ticket:  My Ticket Karissa Skibinski Grade 10 Slide28:  I was born with a ticket to live life. Every year I get older my ticket will be punched. Every new experience and every new smile my ticket will be punched. I was given a ticket of life, I was given a ticket Of freedom, independence a ticket to love. My ticket is my life to be free. Every emotion I feel every tear I cry My ticket will be punched. When I fall in love my ticket will be punched. When I start a new family my ticket will be punched. When I die my ticket will be punched. I was given a ticket to live life to the fullest. The Last Ticket:  The Last Ticket Shelby Laudenschlager Grade 10 Slide30:  I’ve been searching for a ticket Nothing like one I’ve seen before Not to a movie, concert, or Broadway play This ticket may be predetermined I might already have it and be looking for nothing But I’m just dying to find it anyways I can’t say I’ve done anything wrong But now that it’s my time to go When they tell I only have 3 months in me left I just I need to find that ticket Mr. Zeppelin built me my stairway To where that ticket will take me And only God knows if it’s up or down the stairs I’m going But before I die, I need to have that ticket Finally, when I sat down and thought to myself I realized that there is no ticket My entire life and who I am is the ticket And my life, is what decides If my eternal rest will be peaceful, or horrific Ticket :  Ticket Matthew Croft Grade 10 Slide32:  A meaningless piece of paper, Or maybe an untouchable idea That worthless object to get you in the fair Or the opportunities given to you at birth That would lead to open doors, and a life worth living Possibly the same ticket to enter the gates, That resembles the ending of a well lived past It may all sound similar but there is quite a difference The doors of life an death, or even a fair A ticket is something you hold on too To get you through a checkpoint, Towards the destination of your desire Untitled:  Untitled Sara Kulp Grade 11 Slide34:  Take a chance, Shoot for the stars, Live for the moment. Be who you are. Smile like you mean it, Laugh out loud, Push yourself, Stand out from the crowd. Cry a little, Let your hair down, Share a secret, Take a night on the town. Forget popularity, Homecoming queen, Nails and shopping, And making a scene. Relax a little, Take a seat, Think of a boy, Who makes your heart skip a beat. Slide35:  Remember his smile, His 6’3 satnce, Relive every moment, And how you took that chance. Take this ticket, Of life itself, Use it wisely, And keep your health. Experience life, Protect your heart, Open doors, To countless starts. Breathe life, Taste the years, Make them worthwhile, And hold them dear…. Ticket:  Ticket Jarrid Young Grade 11 Slide37:  I have bought a ticket to leave all of my previous life behind me and as I board this lonely train never to go back again I think back to a time when everything was good When all the trees grew and I could see all the leaves when the wind blew but now that all those trees are bare and the wind won’t blow the leaves anywhere I have decide to leave this town and move on to a different ground where the day doesn’t end till night and everything else the moon will light “Dream Ride”:  “Dream Ride” Lauren Begany Grade 10 Slide39:  I curl up in my blankets, Sitting wide awake, Waiting for the train, To help me make my escape. I keep my golden ticket Carefully by my side, For if I do lose it, I can never make this ride. The train pulls up, And I grab my things. I sit near the window, And the train’s bell rings. I stare out the window, As we move along. Then all of a sudden, I hear a lullaby song. I see magical creatures, And all sorts of things. I see fairies, and dragons, And horses with wings. Slide40:  I see angels, and sunlight, And golden day lilies, And tiny elves dancing, Boy, do they look silly! Suddenly the train halts, And I see I am back. I collect my things, And begin to pack. I am sad by the thought, Of leaving the dream, With turtles and mermaids Swimming in cream So as I stand On the tracks of the train, I wave good-bye, And it starts to rain. Ticket:  Ticket Nicole Bruchak Grade 10 Slide42:  An official passport to take You where you choose To go Some may never use their ticket They’ll let it sit Until they don’t know what to do with it they will later regret what they Might have missed thinking that if they had more time The problem might be fixed don’t let this happen to you Take full advantage before its too late You can go anywhere threw the gate The world is yours Admission for one To go anywhere and to do anything Ticket:  Ticket Tyler Kuhns Grade 10 Slide44:  Everyone has got one It is the decision of where you want to go And how much it will cost you It is a ticket of your life You decide when to take the ride It is up to you where to start And where to end All with a ticket “A Ticket to Victory”:  “A Ticket to Victory” By: Kyle Lighting A ticket to victory isn’t an easy thing to achieve But the pressure starts to let up if you simply believe Put your focus to the mission, along with a strong urge to succeed And you will obtain your destiny, I strongly guarantee ZOOM Run like a cheetah, win that competition BOOM Go in a rocket ship and fly to outer space You can do ANYTHING no matter the case Ticket To Death:  Ticket To Death By: Aaron Young Oh, what a shameful place to be, Like a never ending drop.

Baffled, Bewildered, and Confused By Megan Greenberg:  Baffled, Bewildered, and Confused By Megan Greenberg I’m baffled, bewildered, and confused, Why you ask? Let me tell you. My teacher inquired what a ticket was to me, “Well,” I thought, It’s just a piece of paper that accepts a fee. I pondered I wondered and pondered some more, “Hmmm…” Until I found a solution much better than before. A ticket holds that universal key, unlocking everything that could possibly be. Baffled, Bewildered, and Confused (continued):  Baffled, Bewildered, and Confused (continued) But that can’t be it, there has to be more. What exactly could a ticket be used for? Maybe a plane flying up like a bird with great height, Or even a man-eating fire without a fright. A ticket can be used so many places and times, But a normal ticket can only be used one time. Though my thinking didn’t stop there, A ticket can’t be just a piece of paper getting you somewhere. Baffled, Bewildered, and Confused (continued):  Baffled, Bewildered, and Confused (continued) All of a sudden my bustling mind came to a halt, I had my conclusion, this time without its past faults. There aren’t only tickets seen with the eye, What matters most is that special ticket which comes from inside. A ticket that is happiness and joy, a ticket to success, that one key, And that rare ticket is the only one that matters to me.

Swash! Thud! Clang! A bell hits the floor with an earsplitting Bang! You trip, trying to tackle the falling table, You stretch your fingers as sure as you’re able.

Slide88:  “Ticket” Tonya David -now it seems worthless -but it was something grand -something that guaranteed a show, a prize, or a fan -as money means value, this paper means excitement -lions and clowns, sparkle and fire -singers and shows, a game of player’s desire -with imagination and favor -it can open up the door to new experiences -and allow the mind to explore different and thrilling places -now the sizes may vary -colors too -but every ticket symbolizes something special about you Slide89:  “Ticket” Taylor Remaly My ticket out, Out of boredom, out of the box.

Now it’s time, I have my ticket, My ticket out. Slide90:  Which is really just a time, A time in which I feel that I am ready. I feel sure of myself, Finally enough confidence to make it.

Slide95:  ‘Twas on a February eve and my heart could scarce believe that you should bring my soul reprieve and make me feel so high. My arms in yours, and yours in mine. Your scent, a rose, sweet and divine. I’d finally found my valentine, my ticket to the sky. But then the night drew to a close And much as I tried to oppose, there is no fighting He who rose the sun as it came nigh. And so we shared one final kiss Filled with passion, love and bliss. Never did I think that this would be my last good-bye. “Ticket” Ben Lander Slide96:  The road was wet, I drove too fast. I didn’t see him speeding past. The faces all seemed so aghast as the life drained from my eyes. I found myself in a room of light, there was no other thing in sight except a figure, dressed in white. His name, need I imply? “Lord,” said I, “can this be real? Everything seems so surreal-“ But then He forced my lips to seal As He gave me this reply: “This is no dream, my frightened son. Your time on earth is clearly done. But do not fear, for you have won, and on your faith I may rely. Slide97:  So I shall grant you one request, for surely you have stood the test. Ask of me, you shall be blessed with anything I can supply.” And so I sat, and did compose my heart on paper, in this prose. And in an envelope enclosed these words to you, from I. “I can’t express my love for you in these few words, but I’ll construe hopefully how much I do, my precious butterfly. I may be gone from your dimension, but I have an apprehension. We’ll be together, and did I mention? You’re my ticket to the sky.” Slide98:  Ticket to Fame, Your 15 minutes in the spotlight , How much? More than you can handle Ticket to Fortune, Glamour, riches beyond your wildest dreams, How much? More than you can handle Slide99:  Ticket to knowing all, Using your power to make the world as you want, How much? More than you can handle Ticket to life, Controlling your destiny, living like it’s your last, How much? Incalculable “502” By: Michael Wolfe:  “502” By: Michael Wolfe Full tank, Full throttle Drive all day and through the night Romance the road, winding left to right The stars above guide me the moonlight is free A feeling inside me and the whole world to see Driving fast makes me feel good The speed of light trapped under my hood Breaking laws ‘cause there’s nothing to do Slide101:  Hundreds of miles rolled off today Signs lose their meanings, minutes tick away Dirt roads to interstates, I must have drove them all Drive until daybreak , always on the go Life on the freeway, night shift ‘til dawn patrol This feeling inside me I drive until daybreak Driving the interstate……. And stopped for a 502 Slide102:  “Carnival Ticket” By:Olga Karounos Carnival ticket Ticket on the ground That poor little ticket Was lucky to be found Joyful carousels and fun Ferris wheels Adorable stuffed animals with bells at their heels (now all I have to do is just find that door…) Funny little Clowns and quirky magicians Pink Cotton candy and buttery popcorn Slide103:  (I could’ve sworn I just passed that wall…) House of mirrors? Looks entertaining. Well it did when I walked in Three days ago. So now I’m lost No where to be found All because I found that stupid carnival ticket On the ground. Slide104:    Ticket to a Dream Kayla Krotzer I got a ticket today I don’t know what its for But I pack up all my stuff And I'm heading out the door before I leave I say my last goodbyes I take a look at the past and try to dry my eyes It's all fading away now It has all disappeared I have nothing to live for all but my fear There’s a big huge door swarming with bright lights I'm blinded for a second until fear hits me of what is before my eyes I try to look away for the pain I can not bare I know regret holding my breath accepting that ticket Slide105:  I did not know it would be my last tears slide down my face as I feel cold grasp I turn around and an angel is standing there leading me back to body so I can return home I wake up now and know it is all a dream I got a ticket in the mail and then I scream Slide106:  " The Ticket To Your Heart“ Bryana Williams I want the ticket to your heart; For once just tell me where to start. Give me the chance to find the ticket to your heart, Give me the number, then I will start. Show me the way into your life, We'll go for a drive, I'll give you the world. Give me the ticket into your mind, It's full of sweet things I'd probably never find. We should take a chance, we should take a ride, I'm trying to find things I'd never ever find. Give me the ticket into your heart. It's all about love it's all about life, I want the memories and laughter, I want the world, and everything after. Use your imagination, the world is your to see. The world is on your shoulders, it's no longer up to me. Show me the ticket into your dreams, It's all or nothing, not in between. Let me have the ticket to your soul, Trust me I will never ever let that ticket go. Slide107:  Freedom Sarah Fields What is a ticket? What could it be? A passport, a license, An invite, a key? What is a ticket? A ticket is access A passport to happiness, A key to success. What is your ticket? What is your key? A license to liberty, A passage to be free. A ticket allows access, A ticket permits admission, A ticket gives us hope, freedom, and permission. Tickets are hope, And a pass to liberty. And with my ticket, I can be free. Slide108:  Graduation Day Mandy Koenig 1 hour to leave 1 hour to go 1 hour to get going 1 hour to departure 1 hour to freedom   All the memories up till now All the friends i had All the drama that happened All the sports events I went to All the freedom I had   For all the money I spent on my car For all the miles I went For all the wind in my face For all the carefree days For all the freedom   My college I'm going to My job after that My new friends My new adventure My ticket to freedom.    When reading this think of Graduation day.   Slide109:  Future Sabrina Adams I’m stuck here on this road With no idea where to go I have this ticket called “future” in my hand My future, as of now is unplanned Growing up has now turned into an overrated occasion An occasion, with no explanation So far we have spent our lives Worrying about things just to take up the time And we sit and stare at the news to complain When really in the end, we’re the ones to blame Our parents make excuses While really the youth knows that it’s useless The hope, love, and freedom is gone And we’ve been here for way too long It’s up to the media, government, and parents To make things like the were once right Whether it’s for eternity or just one night I’m stuck here on this road With no idea where to go I have this ticket called “future” in my hand My future still stands unplanned Slide110:  TICKETS TO FAILURE Seth Hanner Ticket one - laziness, procrastination, sleeping all day, watching too much television; Ticket two - bad grades, not studying, not paying attention, fooling around; Ticket three - drugs and alcohol, you cannot perform to your best ability, you miss opportunities to succeed; Ticket four – disobeying the law, citations, speeding, murder, stealing, lead to life in prison; Ticket five – selfishness, doing things the way you want them, instead of the way they are supposed to be done, can lead to loosing jobs, These tickets can lead to a hard life, you will not be able to have a good job, no body wants to hire someone with these attributes if you have to many of these tickets, you will have a miserable life. Slide111:  "The Ticket“ George Klaum Smiles stained, My overture, Left to kill the roads, Cars and trains, Trucks and Planes, The ticket is the code. A man was 5, Plus a few more tens, And a biased little speech, He gave me 10, One two then four, And off again I teach. They ask us questions, Where did it come from? What is its purpose and why? I reply with a smile, And a numbered paper, A Raffle, a bet, a tie. We took our chances, And strapped ourselves in, Slide112:  With an envy for the blue, Deep blue oceans, Blocking our path, In a plane with an obnoxious crew. My fictional story, Is only part true, From what i have chosen to bleed, The choices we make, And the things that we say, Are all of the dreams that we need. Slide113:  “Ticket to Success or Failure” Brandon Bubba Do you have the right ticket? The ticket to success, opportunity, and all the things you ever wanted Do you have the desire to go out and give it your all? Do you have what it takes to succeed? Do you strive for all the things you want in life? If you do you are taking the ticket to success not failure If so those wishes you’ve had for your whole life will come true But, if you do not strive higher than you think you can You’re taking the ticket to failure Ticket to a stressful life Ticket to a place you never wanted to go Ticket to a lazy non-working life Ticket to a poor and boring life If that’s what you want go ahead and take that ticket! What path are you going to take? Which ticket do you really want? Do you have the right ticket in mind? The ticket to success, opportunity, and all the things you ever wanted Pick the right ticket and take your life to the next level Don’t take the easy way out. Slide114:  Ticket to Friendship Chloe Frick Success is the ticket to happiness, Some people say. But I think friendship, Gets you through each day. The ticket to love, Is what makes the world go round. When the person you adore, Is finally found. The ticket to life, I also suppose. Is having people around you, That you sincerely chose. The ticket to your future, Is up to you to decide. You choose your fate, Push bad thoughts aside. The ticket to friendship, Is everything combined. Caring, happiness and love, Is the ticket to mankind.

Between the frozen trees of winter, and all the fallen leaves, where all you hear is the quiet wind. Slide120:  Let me leave to this place, that’s only inhabitant is me. Near the frozen creek and rolling snow covered hills. This is where the crisp winter air blows through the mighty trees. Here in my place, is were I am alone. Nobody can find me here, my thoughts are to my own. Slide121:  “My Extraordinary Ticket” By: Taylor Weilnau Here in my hands lies my ticket. My extra special ticket that is filled with hopes and dreams and is handmade just for me. The first place my ticket will take me is on a plane, a plane with unlimited fuel. We will go to Paris, London, Rome even Athens, Cairo, and Hong Kong. My ticket will bring me adventure. Next place my ticket will take me is to the jungle. We will see bright flowers, vicious animals, feel smooth foreign plants, and maybe even hear the songs of a toucan high up in the trees. My ticket will show me the exotic. After the jungle my ticket will take me to Carnegie Hall. With my silver slender flute I will play, play for the thousands maybe even millions. Millions whose ears belong to me for once in a lifetime. My ticket will help share my love for music. MY TICKET Slide122:  Then my ticket will take me to an art studio. There we will create a mural of ours dreams, of our hopes, and even of successes. Our murals will be one of a kind. My ticket will give me the gift of art. Next my ticket will take me to a field hockey field. There we will stay for hours, hours and hours on end. It gives us a feeling of being whole and worthy. My ticket will help me grow and share my love of a sport. The very last place my ticket will take me is to God. There I will ask one simple question, Where did I get this ticket? He will point to my heart and say, In the place where all things come, your heart. Your Heart Slide123:  “One Ticket” By: Todd Anderson Everyone gets a ticket. One, that is all. You must keep it, and hold it. Protect it from the world. It is yours to keep, and yours to show. To anyone you want, And even your foes. Slide124:  You make it what you want. You crease it or fold. You straighten it out, or wrinkle it more. Yesterday’s over. Tomorrow’s to come. Your ticket’s your life. Your life it becomes. “A ticket to life” By: Todd Simon:  “A ticket to life” By: Todd Simon A ticket to life is a ticket to freedom The older you get the more free you become We make lots of choices along the way Some are good I guess you can say And some are bad but that’s ok A ticket to life is a ticket to fun Sometimes you walk sometimes you run Sometimes you do things that are a little dumb You have not yet seen what is yet to become With a little hard work you can get things done A ticket to life is a ticket to dreams Not everything is as it seems sometimes you laugh;sometimes you cry When you are dreaming it seems like life passes you by But you keep asking why :  You have not yet seen what is yet to become With a little hard work you can get things done A ticket to life is a ticket to dreams Not everything is as it seems sometimes you laugh;sometimes you cry When you are dreaming it seems like life passes you by But you keep asking why Slide127:  The greatest resource of all Can take you anywhere you desire, Any place you would like to go, As long as you have the interest. From city to sea and from sea to city, Up in the air, over the ground, or on the sea, Any place you can think of and much more, All in one small parcel. By William Kennington Slide128:  It can get you from nowhere to somewhere, From start to finish, or from home to work, Allowing access to a movie or to a game, Winning the lottery or on a train. Allowing an escape from the everyday and And a passage into a new one, A reward in the future or to explore the sea, A ticket does it all. Dancing Tickets :  Dancing Tickets Everyone’s lined up in a row, They have come to get tickets for the big show. The first ones in line camped out all night, They needed these tickets to be seated just right. The tickets will get them in the door, So they can see what all the excitement is for. There will be feet that float as light as a feather, There’ll be tapers and leapers that dance all together. There’ll be hip-hoppers that pop, Like machines that won’t stop. There’ll be ballerinas as pretty as a rose, Some will be on Pointe high up on their toes. Others will tap like a drum with a beat, As they quickly move their shuffling feet. So you see…. The tickets they’ve gotten will be well worth the wait For the dancers are ready for this special date Rachel Sechrist Slide130:  Give me a ticket To where I don’t care?

Picking it up, I wondered what uses it had; It could have been a speeding ticket; that was bad! It could be used to go to the zoo! I thought with a jump. It could’ve been for a museum, filled with bones, and a thousand-year old tree stump! It could possibly be for the theater, the movie full of suspense, Or could it be a lottery ticket, winning the holder dollars and cents? I thought and thought question after question Then I looked at the back of the ticket; it said IMAGINATION. By Rachel Pocock
