A New Person This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

In and out of life
Things just never seemed right.
They were always different.
In love for most of my life, but then
suddenly it all fell apart.

Fights all the time, never-ending it seemed.
And throwing.

Finally it was over. Free from everything,
Not having to worry about anything.
Finally it was over.

Days went by when he was all alone.
Fighting to make us happy.
Trying his hardest in everything he did.
Sometimes nothing seemed right, but
He did it over and over again until it was.

He’s my hero.
He’s my best friend.

He drove us around like nothing was wrong.
Keeping his head up every time so we wouldn’t
See what was underneath.

Days went by, we grew older.
He was still alone, and still trying.

A girl came into his life. None of us wanted to know.
We wanted him to ourselves.
She changed him into a person I had not
seen in years.

Grew to someone much bigger.
Much stronger than before.

They fell in love.
