Magazine, website & books written by teens since 1989

An endless library This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I turn through the maze of knowledge.

The weight of the books push the bolts to breaking.
The shelves fall and books crash down into the sea.

Perhaps if I cast a net into this sea,
I would not find myself lost between the sections of QU and RA.

What if I just sink in?
Let the ink from the pages sink into my pores.

If I drown myself in knowledge,
Will the librarian smile
As she plays the organ at my funeral?

Closed casket.
