Who Is This Woman This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Who is this woman?
She appears at the funeral.
Her dress is too big for her
Her shoes don't match
Her face is emotionless
And numb
Why is she here?
She isn't related.
Maybe
She is a stranger
A stranger who poured his coffee in the café
Or passed him on the street at the subway
Or sold him something at a store
Who is this woman
With her frizzy hair
And beginning wrinkles
Why is she here?
Maybe
She was just someone who cared.

Wow. This is really good, and it makes you think about the people you interact with, and whether if they would care. Great job!
