Who Are We? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Who are we?
That find happiness in cruelty,
That delight in pain.
Who are we?
That try to hide
Behind carved masks.
Who are we?
That have no love that is true
That cannot stay faithful
Who are we?
We put ourselves up,
But to the outside,
Who are we?

Omg via this is amazing! Congrats on getting it published, it'll be in the nov issue, I presume? I'll be looking forward to seeing it! Lol we both got published in a row ^_^. Anyway, this poem kinda reminds me of one I read in 7th grade English awhile ago (can't remember what it's called) and then another one I wrote awhile (I never posted it though cuz its not very good XD ). Anyway, nice! ^_^
