I Will Draw Me A Poem This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   I will draw me a poem.

I will sharpen my Number 2 soul

and draw.

My teachers always told me to stay within

the lines, but I am not getting graded on this.

My parents always urged me to use bright colors,

but I am not putting this

drawing on the refrigerator.

There are no boundaries or preferred colors to

this poem.

What my soul says, my pencil does.

I will scribble,

sketch, but never erase,

never cross out.

Souls have no time for

second drafts.

Its an amazing poem.
Its like going out of reality
into a perfect fantasy.
Keep writing. =]
