Behind These Sunglasses This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Behind these sunglasses
the world's easier to handle
no one can blow me out
if they can't find my candle

People stare my way
looking as if they really care
still they throw me mean comments
luckily, I'm as strong as a bear

Their neon color might catch eyes
but I'm really not surprised
because everyone's curious
who's behind the sunglasses?

“It's me!” I try to say
but the words don't come to mind
so I stand there like a dork
thinking “Yup, I'm one-of-a-kind.”
