Semicolon This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Life is given for a reason. Nobody really knows exactly why we're here, but it's nice to believe we serve some purpose. To me, life is a gift and we should live it to its fullest. When things get rough and I feel lost, I like to think of life as a sentence. I could easily end it, or I could take a different route. This is the beauty of a semicolon. A sentence could simply cease, but it doesn't because a semicolon allows it to move on. The sentence grows longer and often times sounds better. Even when you feel hopeless, remember to use a semicolon, hold your head high, and move on.
