Scream the Defiance This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     Scream the defiance,
The way we always did,
Bring back that deeply buried

Be like the hawk,
Shed your skin and sprout feathers,
Soar into the defiance,
Fly to the moon and back for one cause.

The skin you wear is weak,
Be the one to stand out,
Be the one to soar,
I’ll be there too.

You won’t be alone,
I’ll dodge the stars with you,
I’ve found I like feathers,
I like to be free.

So go ahead,
We’ll scream the defiance,
In perfect harmony,
And break free of the gilded cage of society.

Be the rebel,
The one you are deep inside
The caverns in your mind.
And let the feathers release you.

Scream for all you’re worth,
Join me in the sky.
I don’t want to be alone,
Do you?
