The Other Side MAG

April 21, 2015
By Anonymous

A nobody. Has hope. Spontaneous.
Repeatedly naive. Denoted
worthless before their performance.
Assumptions
cleared. Bad beat befalls
upon them against the angle adversary.
Resolute sable ink.

Prism perspectives.
To make decisions many cannot. Ceasing chirps. Will never

exist on the evolving
hierarchy. Like porcelain becomes a
bleary windowpane.


The author's comments:

The underlying theme for this poem may be a bit overused, but it is still rarely listened to. We have been taught at a very trusting age about the stereotypes. We cannot help but pre-judge, yet we can be aware. This is the message I want readers, if only a few, to receive. Try to be conscious that there are different variables when analyzing a situation.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sable There was supposed to be a link there, but apparently all TeenInk.comments are plaintext. Dangit.

I should probably clarify: I was confused specifically by the "sable" part. This is a sable.

1. a childhood memory 2. The minority figure in "The Other Side" does not yield to the majority which is similar to how ink is permanent.

Deep. Dark. Cautionary. One question, though: Why did you write "resolute sable ink"?
