A Visit To The Nursing Home This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I look into their old and tired eyes,

they seem to be begging me for company.

They extend their arms toward me,

like my great-grandmother used to

I would love to go talk to them

They're probably a book of knowledge waiting to be read

But yet, I stand motionless

As if my feet were cemented into the ground

Fear takes over my formerly conscious mind

And I lose my chance to make a difference
