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

It all happened so quickly.
Something so good turned so bad.
A cure that created a problem –
A problem that could destroy the world

People were screaming.
People were running.
People were dying.
People were rising.

The dead were “coming back.”
Unable to control themselves
There seemed to be one goal among them –
Turn everyone into a monster

People banded together.
People fought for their lives.
People tried to restore order.
People failed.

War between the living and dead lasted months,
Maybe even years
It seemed like a hopeless battle.
The will to survive slowly faded.

People surrendered.
People submitted.
People died.
People rose.

The world died that day.
Along with all the living
All that was left were the dead.
Mindlessly roaming around

A new race of people
