Cradle of life This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

From birth to death this goblet
Of life incubates our body and soul.
You are a source of nourishment
Connecting all of humanity
By your violent waves and calm bays.
Mistreated, misused, and abused,
By those who crave your hydration.
You can be the root of sickness
In the third world, while I sip on my
Pricey bottled commodity, safe and sound.
You are the cause of political
Discussion and economic repercussions.
Mysterious depths engulf the minds and bodies
Of curious land dwellers.
Lapping at my lips and toes,
I leap into your wondrous embrace
And you cradle me softly again.
