I Am From This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I am from secrets
And from silence
I am from hate
And from fear
I am from arguing
Not between them
But through me
I am their safety
For my lips are sealed
I do not repeat
For things are better
We could be torn apart
But our secrets
Keep us intertwined
They are deceitful
But I hold the truth
If I ever told
Hell would be among us
My life is good
For I hold all the secrets
I hold hers
And I hold his
Things said of one another
Are embroidered in my mind
I hold the knowledge
But they hold the words
They are my book
But I don't have to tell
For they spill their secrets
But I keep mine
I am a closed book
That they cannot read
They think they know
But truly they never will
My family is slipping
But they are oblivious
I see it unraveling
But for them
The poison will strike
At the last minute
They will break
But I will stand tall
For I am holding us together
