This is the work completed by LP students over the course of the school year.
The pieces have been left as they were written to retain the flavor,
voice and spirit of this dynamic group of LP students.


Dear Reader,

Even though most people from higher grades had told us this year would be the easiest of
all, most of us who had to learn English from zero would disagree with this. LP year, in general, was
like a street opening to a highway: narrow, frustrating and meanwhile filled with a strange aroma
of fun and happiness.

Comparing now and the first day of school, LP has been a long journey of development
and concern. Remembering the first grades, we all had numbers that we weren't used to. We even
blamed our teachers for giving those grades on purpose. In fact, as the end of this journey
approaches, we can now see that they were quite generous at the beginning of this year.

We had many fun moments as these 9 months slipped away in the blink of an eye. From the
funny election campaigns, to the ridiculously fun advertisements we prepared, we had such great
moments during the whole year. Although, at some points we couldn't stand the school and hated
it, now- nearly the end of the LP year- we all anticipate that there will be a very big part of us
missing the sweet memories of the LP year.

This editorial was written by the time the year had not come to an end and looking to the
end of the year now, we can bet that most of the LP students are not exactly ready to let LP year
go and embrace ninth grade. However, we think sticking with one year is not the best choice
while there is much more to experience in this school and for the rest of our lives

All in all, we congratulate everyone who passed through this hard year and we wish every
student of LP our best. And we thank all our teachers for the lovely year they prepared for us.

This year we added a new Kindest regards,

The End...


Confectioner Billy

Chloe was his first victim and she was six years old.
One night, she did not listen to her mother's
warnings and went out after 7 p.m. While she was
wandering around by herself, Billy found her and
convinced her to take a journey to his candy shop.
During their journey, Billy caught her suddenly and
stabbed her. She died there and Billy took her to
his candy shop, cut her fingers off and set them
aside, and burned the rest. He made some
candies from these fingers and put some poison in
them. In this way, he used these candies as a new
weapon. Nowadays, he has run out of fingers and
has started to look for new victims. In order to be
safe, children should not go out after 7 p.m.;
otherwise, Billy can catch them and use them as a
new candy source.

Batuhan Üzgün LP3

There is a candy shop at the end of a dark, silent,
long and gloomy street. The only illumination of this
street is a dim street-light. This candy shop is not a
big place and the owner of the shop is
Confectioner Billy. He is tall, skinny, and pale. He has
straight, long hair, dark as coals. He always wears a
suit and loves children. Actually, he loves children
in his candies! He is searching for children
between ages five and ten years old late at night
in the streets. If he finds a lonely child, he catches
him/her and stabs him/her to kill the child and use
for new candies. He makes sticky, rodlike candies
from fingers, just as he did with Chloe.

Eyes of a Wooden Soldier

Jack Smith's Joinery Workshop is at the corner of the street. There is an old lamp which lights
up the wooden table in the joiner's workshop. The joiner's tools shine like stars under the dim
light. A half painted wooden soldier guards the workshop from the darkness of midnight. The
wooden soldier wears a black beaver fur hat and a glorious red coat with golden buttons.
It has not got military boots on its unpainted little bare feet. His big black eyes look very
meaningful for a wooden soldier. The antique wall clock's tick-tack sound breaks the silence.
Suddenly the church's bell rings rebound in the cold room. Snow crystals flit on a strong wind
on Christmas Day. The workshop smells like a mix of roast coffee and open paint cans.
Vapors rise up to the air from a cup of strong and delicious coffee. All of them actually show
a lonely life between the wood and the darkness behind the smoked window.

With a tea in dawn? Don't be afraid of old age,
Or soaking up the fresh air in the morning? I will be elderly, too
Or hugging and kissing your sweet grandchild? With wrinkles and callouses

Seeing the sweet smile of my grandchild,
Getting up whenever I want,
Shouting "Pişti" enthusiastically,
Farting without any shame,
Making a pig of myself,
Laughing nasally,
Hugging my wife on her 75th birthday,
Hearing crying when I am on my deathbed.
Lastly, I want to plant a tree
To start a new life before I die
Don't be afraid of old age,
If you know the secret of getting old pleasantly.
Never lose the enthusiasm of meeting with new

Don't give up your hope
Live with your memories

Even if you play dominoes every day,

To be knowledgeable and virtous.

Dark Side

I was a Jedi
Like a King of Business
Then something happened,
I had the power,
But the handcuffs didn't
Let me go
Then everything changed

The Dark side
Swallowed me
With the papers
I was lost in darkness
But it was so weird

If I Were A Child

If I were a child again
I would whoop on a merry-go-round horse

And lick my pink lolly
Have sweet dreams on my cotton candy

If I were a child again
I would reach the sun
Then slide on a rainbow
Or maybe play hopscotch
If I were a child again
The colours would shine brighter
And I could hear the rhythm of world
The birds would tweet louder.

If I were a child again
I would ask why does the world seem darker

Stars are not brighter
I would ask the grown ups to stop fighting
Because I know , world would be peaceful

When everyone is hopeful
If I were a child again

I wuld ask the grown ups,what are they fighting for

Why should a child hear shotguns and her mom's screech
And see bloody bodies

Who is reponsible for all these
Who is responsible for a child's tear

Which carries hope and fear
If I were a child again

I would think all those wars are just like a game
Anf when someone dies,he will come alive
If I were a child again
Everything would be simpler
Just like a game.

If I were huger, I would have wrapped myself around you.
If I were richer, at least as rich as your heart, I would buy a chicken for you
That we could eat later if you cooked it with love.
If we can run away together, let's disappear.
If you had never sent me that message,
We would both be half empty
If I didn't have you,
I would have never been so perfect
Perfect as unicorns,
Perfect as rainbows,
Perfect as small rivers with sparkling fish
Perfect as free hawks in the sky
But you wouldn't have been so good without me either
Good as chocolate
Good as popcorn
Good as Sarp Kaan's hair
Without us, everything is empty -
Flowers, trees, cars,
Even the world
Aykut Girginer LP3


If I hadn't heard your laugh

If I hadn't heard your laugh
If I hadn't heard your laugh,
I wouldn't have fallen in love.
If I hadn't seen your eyes blinking,
I wouldn't have thought of you every second.
If I hadn't looked into your jade eyes,
I wouldn't have felt in paradise.
If I hadn't known your name,
In my heart there wouldn't be a flame.

If we hadn't hugged,
I wouldn't have felt like lightning had struck.

If I hadn't smelled your parfume,
I wouldn't have pursued you.

If you hadn't looked like the sun,
I wouldn't have felt like I had been shot with a gun.

If you hadn't looked like a kid,
I wouldn't have felt over the clouds.

If I hadn't seen your mimic,
I wouldn't feel like in the quintic.

If I Were An Eagle If You

If I were an eagle I would talk with you
I would live freely And join hands with you
I wouldn't get bored I would have a picnic with you
I'd be the symbol of power. Instead of being sad after you
If I were an eagle If you had not passed away
Nobody would inhibit me
I would be the wildest I would cry with you
People would fear me
If I were an eagle Instead of cry without you
I would fly over the mountains I would prefer to tell lies to you
I would travel to different places
I wouldn't stop and rest Than telling the lonely truth
If I were an eagle If you had not passed away
Life would be nicer
I'd realize the beauties of nature I would like to be a doctor
I would make my dream come true. If I could save people's lives, like yours
Umut Atlı LP2
I would like to be an architect
18 If I could build things which remind me of you

I would bet my life
If I could save you
But the most important of all -
I could love you much more
If you had not passed away

Erim Turgut Emel LP3

Killing Time

If I wait until I am ready,
If I look back on what I have done,
If I let myself miss the moment,
If I spend my time giving someone a second chance
When there is someone better out there looking for their first,
If I spend my time with explanations,
If I do nothing for the rest of my life,
If I do not work hard,
If I rest on my laurels,
There is no doubt that, I will be a murderer.
Burcu Risa Bigvava LP3


Money Poems

New, different people from all around the world
I travel from hand to hand
To richest and to poorest
With different reasons to conquer me
But they all end up the same,
Conquered by a piece of paper.
Though heavier than millions of lives
Lighter than the heart of a new born in fact
From different ages, men women and kids
And the more I reach, the more I'll spread my filth
So on I go, thanks to those who look with closed eyes.

Dilara Usta LP2

Money The Key Of Everything

My purse carries money in it They say there is no door which money can not open

I know it's so hard to carry And can't do anything without money

Because the money is a risk Everything is possible with money

It's like a bomb Is it really true?

Ready to explode at any moment, stays with us Can money give you health?

Good or bad, anything could happen Money can be people's boss or handcuffs
Despite a lot of good opportunities, It can be some people's power
Sometimes it brings problems Money can make you a prisoner
All around like a magnet But it is your decision to change
Which attracts unhappiness
It causes competition Wars broke out just because of money
It causes covetousness Friends kill each other just for money
Friendships end Is human life worthless than money?
No money no friends?
Relationships end
Only loneliness remains Money means nothing for some people
But everything for some others
Sinem Tatar LP2 Is it really that meaningful?

Is money a friend or an enemy?
It can make you happy but can even kill you too
Money means power
It's important, but not everything...

Ece Güven LP2



When I take my wage, Strict rules make our mood.
All green trees seem like money to me All the same for everyone.
But I want more, I want more, Is that perfection?
Give me more, give me more.
Then maybe I can have the Golden Ticket Teoman Çolak, Enes , Ardahan,
For happiness. Cause maybe, Berkay, Tolga
It can be my Cupid.
I want more, I want more THE ELDERS OWN US.
Maybe I can finally have the big microphone. NOBODY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
When my wage is finished.
My tie chokes me more. Taha Galata, Efe Karaca, Celal Kaplan,
I do not want more, I do not want more Can Çaylı, Ufuk Erkırlı
Give me less, give me less.
Cause maybe, I will not feel the Nobody's free here
Hands of society on my throat. Everything under control
Then maybe I can have true friends. And unchangeable.
I do not want anymore,
I do not want anymore. Yağmur, Zehra, Nihan, Duygu, İris
Cause maybe I can get rid of
This cold murderer. We have read three chapts
It is the cruelest serial killer, Which is twenty five pages
Money envelops all around the world. Where is the GIVER???

My Favourite Fish

My favourite pet would be a pessimistic fish. When I delay to feed it, it would think I don't love it and
bump its head against the glass of aquarium. It would listen to my problems and cry with me until the
water of aquarium overflows with its tears. If I break up with
my lover and if I smoke, it would ask me for a cigarette.
Then, when it couldn't light it up in water, it would want
to go out from the aquarium. Sometimes, it would
want to listen rap songs and open and close its
mouth like it was singing the song. My favourite
pet also would be malcontent. It would be
dissatisfied with its aquarium or its food and it
would speak sweetly with me as a child for
wanting to change them. Sometimes, it would be
bored with its skin and change it like how I wear
different clothes. Most importantly, it would reflect
the spirit of me, it would be whatever I am. When I
look at it, I would see myself and I wouldn't feel alone.

The Stongest Man Ever

The strongest man ever,
And, the one that deceives you.
With a hoarse voice,
His purpose is to get into your mind.
Very big and verdant eyes.
Always stares at you shrewdly.
It is powerful enough to convince you.
To do everything that he wants.
Like a eccentric detective.
He wears a jacket and a black hat.
He is a mysterious spooky man
Who spies you everywhere
He is a cold-blooded man
And, an intelligent deceiver
He always tries to appeal you
By using his own charming speech
Umut Atlı LP2


The Bloody Toilet

There was a girl who was a boarding student at the Koç
School. Whenever she went to the bathroom, there was someone
in the second toilet. She could see her shadow and hear the
mumbling, but she never saw who it was.

One night, she went to the bathroom after a long
basketball practise to wash her face and hands. The second
stall was full again. She knocked on the door but nobody
answered it. She knew that somebody was inside the toilet
because she could see her shadow. She also could see her toes
when she looked under the door. She didn't care and again
continued washing her face. She looked at herself in the mirror.

The bathroom door was open and she could see the
whole corridor when she looked in the mirror. Suddenly, she heard
a scream of a girl and a girl with long , straight , dark hair and
pale skin was going down the stairs in a hurry. She hadn't seen
anyone like her in the school before. When she turned back to
the bathroom to see what was happening, everything was quiet
and normal. She ran through the toilets and the second toilet
was empty. It was impossible for someone to have entered or
exited this bathroom without her noticing because she could see
the door of the bathroom at all times.

She entered the toilet to check if everything was normal
there. After two days, her friend realized that blood was
spreading everywhere on the floor from under the second toilet
and the toilet was locked. After one hour, the attendants broke
down the door and came across the corpse of a girl. The girl
didn't have any wounds or slits that would produce blood. She
was just dead but everywhere was daubed with blood.

I have become 18 I have become 12
I will take an exam years I have been observed for years
And It will decide my job Elders will assign my job

That will determine my future

I swore to the government I said varment instead of garment
Because it cheated to vanquish In the lessons we learnt language
By the Instructor I was
By the police I was


I love forests with acacia trees I have no idea what are these
I slide down hills and climb to trees I try not to disarrange grass
It is always warm and still
It is cold in winter, hot in summer I don't think
I feel empty when

something is missing.

I like going to zoos I love playing with my comfort object
I like watching them alive Although I know they never existed
I can't believe how beautiful the nature is I can't believe how creative our people are

I have an admiration for it

I like the fact that we are all different I like that all of us are the same
But it is the reason of chaos So that everything is organized

But maybe it would be better

If all of us were the same If we had some differences

And sometimes I wish
It was vice-versa

Hello, my friend

I am sending this postcard from the place that
you recommended to go for a holiday, called
Utopia. Indeed, I got disappointed because this is
such a terrible place for holiday. Firstly, everybody
looks at me strangely and warn me to obey the rules.
There are really strict rules and some of them are
actually so illogical. Secondly, buildings are so old
and ugly looking. Moreover, everybody has the
same houses and bicycles. Lastly, the people usually
call others by their genders and ages. Everything
seems like cloned. Even the people. I will come back
at the first chance.

See you later,

Hi Claire, Tuzla/Istanbul

I don't know where to begin! The amazing air,
fabulously kind and planned people. They don't
use cars and it's amazing. They use bicycles instead
of them. Additionally, a woman apologized to me
just because she stared at me for a while but in
Turkey people gape and think that you are ok with
it! Above all, they are really planed. They have
volunteer activities, dinner time and talk, etc. and
these are all organized. If this isn't the perfect world,
what is?

Wish you could see it

The Stanley Parable To him work was the sole concern.
Stanley was working
Stanley was a hard worker. When the Sun expanded
He wanted to be prosperous, And embodied the Earth.
So he worked long hours He continued to work
To make his family's life better. When it exploded.
One day he went to work early He was still working
Only to come back after 8 When the last star was formed
But his boss asked him to stay late. When the last black hole disappeared
Stanley thought it would be a great perk Which had swallowed the last star.
So he worked and worked. Stanley worked and worked
The sun rose and went down Until the last molecule ripped apart,
And he was still working The last atom fragmented
When the first snow fell down. And the last light ceased.
Days passed by, then months, then years, The universe was dead.
Stanley didn't realise his computer had stopped Then Stanley finished his report
counting years. Shut his computer down, gathered his belongings.
He was still working He glanced at the photo of his daughter for the last time
When the last clock sounded the last tick-tock. And then faded away.
Stanley was still working
In the day of Armageddon Egemen Bostan LP4
He wasn't on the Good side, nor the Bad

What the Sultan Had

The Sultan had a treasure, The Sultan had halls made of marble,
Bigger than eternity, which has no ends. Carpets made of silk,
And he had so many servants, of every kind, Tables filled with feasts,
Who would go anywhere that he sends. That would even contain bird's milk.

The Sultan had a fortune, The sultan had what everyone wanted,
Chests studded with diamonds and plated with gold That a list of greed would store.
That hid his belongings, But he had one belonging
Which were so precious no one could dare to hold. That no one would dare to ask for.

The Sultan had a castle, The sultan had an illness
Made of iron, pearl and glass. Doctors could not cure.
And beautiful gardens, Nor his mighty, incomparable wealth,
That were made with emerald instead of grass. Could again turn his blood pure.

The Sultan had maids, The Sultan had an illness
More beautiful than a sunset. That turned his skin pale as a ghost,
So that every man who looked at them, And when the poor Sultan died,
Would look like a fish caught in a net. All his fortune was lost.
