The New Tree This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I am slowly
But surely turning
Into a new tree.

My leaves are healthier,
Greener,
And more abundant
Than ever before.

My leaves are
Branching out
To other people,
Animals,
Places,
Possibilities.

There is no way to tell how long
they'll grow
Or when they'll stop,
Or if they'll stop.
Right now, I don't
Want them to.

I have a new perspective of people,
A new respect for my peers,
A new understanding of myself.
My leaves are growing greener.
