The Jaded Salmon This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Fins
flipping
faithfully in the
current. Upstream.
A fight for survival.
The real Call of the
Wild. A valiant journey.
To pass on their legacy,
They’ll need scales of
determination. Rushing
waters, force past them,
Urging them to fail.
Spawned constern-
ation permeates
through
The callow beasts.
Fixed eyes stare ahead.
Toward the future; Toward the end of the stream.
