Black Diamond Trail This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   I walked out of the ski lodge

Into the brisk December breeze

Clouds passed by the mountain peak

As I stepped into my skis



I hopped onto the chairlift

That brought me soaring through the sky

The scenery was awesome

The mountains were so high



The slope that was before me

Was the tough Black Diamond Trail

The challenge was to conquer it

I knew I mustn't fail



I started down the icy slope

And quickly picked up speed

The moguls sent me flying

So my poles I didn't need



Fear built up inside me

I looked down with such a fright

But relief soon overcame me

As the bottom was in sight



Finally, I made it

Safe in the lodge, and then ...

A thought popped up so clearly

Hey! I think I'll go again
