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


Harsh colors surround The Man
As he pities himself.
He feels sobad, not worthy.
The world lies forgotten, unexplored.

Harsh colors arehis self-involvement.
He cares not for others
Nor for himself.
To himthe world stops
Because he is not worthy.
Hatred surrounds him.
He seesonly his pitiful self.

Harsh colors light the midnight sky.
He doesn'tsee them.
He only sees his sad self.
His weak do-nothing self.
He feelsconfined.
Like walls and iron gates lock him in.
But it is he who holds thekey.
Change is that key, but yet
He sees only himself.
He longs to makehimself a worthy child,
Break Fear.

Harsh colors enclose him.
Heshrinks back into his fear.
He feels that he cannot escape them.
But it isall in his head.
