The Monster And Mommy This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Where Mommy stood

A minute ago

A monster now does stand.

The monster isn't nice to me.

He just bothers me

And commands:

"Go to your room!"

"Clean up that mess!"

"What do you mean by that?"

"Don't ever talk to me that way!"

"Stop acting like a brat!"

I need comfort.

I need love,

And there's no one else nearby,

So I run to the monster's

Open arms

And into them

I cry.

And soon Mommy is here again.

And she's comforting me.

And I think the monster

Has disappeared!

For Mommy's all I can see!
