Things That Make Me Smile This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , San Antonio, TX
Butterfly kisses, shooting-star wishes,
Warm, cloudy days, Thanksgiving parades,
Braided hair, truth or dare,

Your voice when you wake up,
My face before makeup,
Those days I don't give up,

My mom's smile, running a mile,
Sitting on grass, the end of class,
Hand-written letters, “it will get better,”

Rain because of rainbows,
Summer because my skin glows,
You and your crooked nose,
The way you leave my mind blown,
And you call me your own,

These are the things that make me smile.
