Hawaii, The Beautiful This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I remember

the beaches

shining

clear as crystal

they lose their glint

some people

just don't care

and ruin the aina

I remember

the trees

playing in the forest

laughing

but now the trees

have gone

where?

I remember

the beauty of Hawaii

do you

or have you been

stripped of the chance

to experience

for yourself

Every year we lose 500 million acres of forestry. It's a sad fact. I like the ending of your piece: "...or have you been stripped of the chance yourself..." It's adds truth because it could happen.
