Domestic Dissent This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


This is my silent rebellion.
I'm waiting for you to take notice.
This is thepeak of years-smothered anger.
I'm waiting to flail against you.
This is measserting myself.
I'm waiting for the slow effect.
This is me turning myback, not my cheek.
I'm waiting to see how you stand.
This is myindependence.
I'm just waiting for your nod of approval.

I love the contradiction here- the speaker states that this is a rebellion, yet (s)he is waiting for approval. Excellent way to convey a message with being too obvious about it. :) The way some of the words are combined is interesting as well. Nice job.
