Make Sure to Leave the Window Open This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Be careful to never close
The only way to
Let the birds
Come in

By nature
We close things.
Because maybe
It helps us to feel better?

You never know
When you will
Be visited
By your own raven.

Why close anything?
Leave everything
Open
Especially

Your eyes

Astoundingly insightful and true! SO TRUE! I love your parallels and tie-ins with nature (birds, raven). The symbolism of the raven was a good touch as well. A truly wonderful message to humankind. Great work. :D Would you please read and comment on my poem titled Amidst Blinding Chaos? I would really appreciate it! :D
