Become This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

You disgrace yourself
And your life
You do things
That you know are not right
You do "What feels good,"
You don't care
About anything else

Life is a gift
From heaven
Not something
To be wasted,
Replaced
With earthly things

I see your pain
I hear your silent cries
And I want
To let you know;

We were meant to be
So much more
Than we let ourselves
Become

You literally took words that I didn't know had been waiting to be spoken from my mouth and turned them into a perfect poem. This piece is 110% deserving of that editor's choice. Congratulations and great job!
