Attainment Through The Rain Forest This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Life is sometimes called a jungle,

a rain forest stifling one's creativity.

It's a struggle to maintain

one's ideas, one's morals

through the exotic and boisterous cries,

as monsters manipulate one's mind

and slithering creatures seize one's soul.

Yet continue to strike back -

to be original,

to be individual,

to simply be yourself,

through the wilderness of society.

The path to sustain a

singular and distinctive personality

is camouflaged by

incredulous foliage and the oppressing

atmosphere.

Entered by all, everyone attempts to

tackle the treachery

but only the enlightened,

those who realize their own inner beauty,

are able to leave the facade called the jungle.

very easy to relate to,seeing the world for what it is and learning to accept that is hard,but staying true to yourself through it all doesnt have to be a jungle.
