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

   Here I stand alone and scared

Fear plays from a three-piece band

I stand and listen to the weary sound

Coming from the curve around

I seem to move with all my ease

Afraid of what my ease will bring

It calls my name with such extortion

Followed by a swarm of emotion

Moving on with a steady pace

Wond'ring if there will be a face

I turn the corner and to my surprise

The three-piece band has moved from sight

The music still played

As I walked on only to find another song

I waited and watched for awhile

Nothing happened till I grew mindful

Then things turned clear

And the three piece band reappeared

The music still played but I knew why

Only to tell me that I won't die

I looked around and to my surprise

I was back at home wanting to cry

I wiped my tears and sat straight up

And prayed for my angel

Who decided to look up.
