For You This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
     When the world is silent
And the moon sits still
When the stars preach peace
And the twilight lingers
I play my song for you
When the heavens give up
And the clouds bow down
When the gates shut out
And the key is lost
I open my arms to you
When the Earth shrieks havoc
And the thunder of violence booms
When the blood of war stains
And the destruction of justice threatens
I become a protector for you
When the ground freezes over
And ice creeps into every crevasse
When breath is frozen in mid-air
And heat exists no more
I am a blanket for you
When all hope is gone
And nothing seems right
When every day is a new battle
And it’s hard to stand on two feet
I am here for you
