Something to be Said This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

There is something to be said
For the nights where we get plenty of sleep
For daily agendas
Organized desks
Timely arrivals
College tours
Test scores
To-do lists
Matching socks
Alarm clocks
Ironed shirts
And work

There is something to be said
For practicality
Pragmatic personalities
And good old-fashioned common sense

Everything else
Screams
