Thank you, Teen Ink, for showing me the value of writing. Anyone can slap down a few sentences on a piece of paper and call it a poem, but thanks to you, I have learned the beauty of true poetry. I learned how to speak my heart with similes and metaphors in a way I didn't know was possible.

At first, getting critiqued online made me feel bad about myself. Then I took some of the advice and my poems started getting better and better. I can now write a poem from deep inside my soul and like how it comes out, something I might never have done if not for Teen Ink. So, thank you, Teen Ink, for the love you've put into my heart.

"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
