The Ballad of the Independent Soldier This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Everything that I have fought for
has fallen into the sea
I will suck upall the water
and make a new society
Anarchy?
Impurity?
yes,maybe
I will have to decide when I reach the end of my journey
and fall tothe floor
and pray for life eternally yours
and stitch my wings backon
and fly away into the sun
and watch it explode
into a millionfragments of life best forgotten
so I can dream again.
so I can bleedagain
so I can Be again
so I can
yes, maybe
