Emotions Alive This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Happy shines, an undeniable beam.
Hopeful achieves the unattainable dream.
Bored wants to find a daring thrill.
Depressed sits alone, maybe pops a pill.
Sorrowful drips from desperate eyes.
Envious travels to where jealous resides.
Forgetful doesn't know where it has been.
Lazy refuses to ever begin.
Nostalgic can't ever get out of the past.
Nice won't always finish dead last.
Angry gets washed away by ocean's tide.
Lonely can't help being empty inside.
Content knows how to forgive and forget.
Spontaneous never encounters regret.
Hateful has false hopes of getting ahead.
Ambitious will lead and never be led.
Emotions and moods, some we wish not to feel,
But without this mixture, would we ever be real?

This is such a great poem! The rhyming and the lilt to the poem really makes each emotion seem like it's connected to the others. The last two lines put it all together in a simple question. Well done! Please read and comment on some of my poems! Thank you
