Just to Let You Know This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Your butchering words
In the beginning
Went through my head
As a child who listens
To every word you say

Your constant sarcasm

Just to let you know, Dad
Those butchering words
To me are now worthless
For I know now
It was only your sickness

Congratulations on realizing that I had a typo on a feed on a website. Where grammar really matters.

Look whose being sensitive! haha, honestly, if you aren't willing to have your opinion challenged, then don't post your opinion. I thought that was the point of this website, to share writing, thoughts, and discuss things. Please tell me if I'm wrong, I would probably take your word for it.
