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


Outside the frost sparkles on the hard lawn,
the trees are bare andthe wind nips and bites at any exposed body part.
Winter is in fullbloom.
But inside my head,
where it matters most,
Summer hasarrived.
Warm and delicious,
Green grass and barefoot cartwheels in thebackyard.
You can't break me.

I like how this poem reminds me of how it feels to become mature. Winter is symbolizing how on the outside the speaker "is in fullbloom” meaning physically the speaker hasn’t matured. Summer symbolizes maturity meaning emotionally the speaker is mature, "But inside my head, where it matters most, summer hasarrived.”
