Until It All Had Gone This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I look around the ordinary world

And see the ordinary things.

All the trees alike, all clouds alike

The same sun day always brings.



But suddenly the world is gone.

Nothing remains around.

The trees and birds have disappeared,

As have the flowers on the ground.



And now I miss the unique branch

And the single ray of sun.

I didn't appreciate this precious world

Until it all had gone.

I love this! I wish I could make my rhyming flow the way you did. Mine comes out all choppy and not good :(

Keep up the good work!
