Theory of Man This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Please excuse my obscenity,
Self-righteous thoughts through masculinity,
Running from fault of my own actions,
I tell myself I am one of the world's greatest attractions,
I apologize; for all my deceit,
Making promises no man can keep,
I am sorry; for giving you scars,
Leaving you to wonder if there is nothing beyond the stars,
No longer will I make excuses,
Only time now to hang this noose,
Please forgive me, Father; I have sinned,
To these boards; I am pinned,
Forgive me Father; I have sinned,
I was born corrupted; but I shall die with a grin
