The Ones We Lost This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


My woundedheart
Bleeds black smoke and fire.
Scarred by years of violence,
Itbeats the drum of war
Of a nation torn asunder
By hate anddesperation.
It crumbles beneath the weight
Of wrenched beams and

twisted metal,
A lost support.
Its sanctity violated,
I crawlinside,
Rebuild the fallen walls,
And light a sacred candle
To pray forthose
Who will never return
