Finding the Words This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

The tongue and brain are not attached;
They are separated by a void.
A hollow emptiness that cannot be filled.
The words stay inside against my will.
I try to say what I Feel, what I Mean, what I Know.
I don't Understand why my internal ­discussion cannot be shared.
Oh, how it frustrates me.
I wish there were a way to expose my conviction for them to See.

Internal conversation is the cocoon of colorful butterflies.
It needs time to develop, is somewhat fragile, vulnerable.
When it emerges its amazing, unique, of elocuent colors.
