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

Shut me in a windowless room
Though I long to see the sun
I will not utter a word of reproach
For I am stronger in my disgrace.
I shun your taunting murmurs
Like poison to the mind –
And though I long to see the sun
I am stronger in my faith.
Leave me blind without the light
So forcefully removed from this room,
I’ll in myself lead the way
For I am stronger in this fight.
