The Final Blow This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
How frustrating
How sad,
How unfair,
How maddening.
How terrible
Of that doctor
To tell us such a thing,
How dare he smile
While dealing that final blow?
I’m seeing my own life
Flash before me,
I’m seeing my own pain
Linked with yours
And all I can think about
Is how it is your fault
That you have caused this pain,
That you have done something wrong,
And so I am not talking to you,
Grandma,
Because I am angry at you,
Because you didn’t think about my life,
When you caused your own
To end, with cancer.
