Just Beyond the Edge of the Woods This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


My future lies,
Just beyond the edge of the woods.
Until now the forest has surrounded me,
Sheltered me,
Protected me.

I have explored the caves and treetops,
But now I want to see more.
I love the woods,
But they are too enclosing,
Too protective.

Just beyond the edge
Lies an open field,
A lake,
A swamp,
Or yet another forest.

I want to know what is out there,
To dream,
To explore,
To live,
Just beyond the edge of the woods.
