My Body Like A Fallen Flag This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   One small step, then one large fall
And I no longer care at all.
I hear andfeel the wind rush by,
It makes me want to laugh and cry.
Beneath me all Isee is black.
I know I won't be coming back.
With arms spread wide I try tofly,
"Embrace the Earth," my insides sigh.
The hands of time are slowernow,
The ground seems faraway somehow.
My body like a fallenflag,
Devoid of hope, and sad, so sad.

I really Like this. I love the rhyming and the beat and the imagery. I also liked how you joined some words together it really works
