The Closet Anxiety This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   In bed, waiting.

Don't know why.

The closet, the closet.

What will happen?

What's in the closet?

Answer: My future.

Failure? Success?


In bed waiting.

Don't know why.

Don't know why.

It's like, my life

Is a white water ride

With no guide.

What's going to happen


Don't know.

Don't know.

I could definately feel the tone and anxiety of your poem. It is very interesting. It's like the future is waiting and you don't know what it will bring. Makes me think of fearing of the unknown.

Great poem! it's sooo true because you never know what's in you future. Just a tip: even though it's a poem, Complete sentences are key. :)
