The Words That Have Been Said - After Gerald Stern This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
I couldn't live like that,
Putting my face in my hands,
Making up my mind,
Letting thoughts flow
Nervous movements with my hands

I could let my thoughts drown
And find somewhere else to be
And something else to do
And avoid my problems forever.

(it could work)

I could stay with Her
And pretend I'm happy
And go along with everything
And forget how I'm empty inside.
