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

   In every backyard,

A great oak stands strong.

Sifting a sea of ashes.



With scared skin still smoking,

A statue of strength

awaiting the next battle.



In the flick of the wind

a cloud of poisons.

Man's only contribution,

A world on the verge of

extinction.



With glowing green leaves,

in your backyard

in this defiance

Drowning in acidic rain.
