I Got the Joy! This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
I got the joy
to pop the corn
side the walk
swing the set
mock the bird
glow the worm
gas the light

To
break the fast
ice the box
stair the well
school the boys
bubble the gum
french the kiss

To
yellow the fever
treasure the chest
miracle the grow
marry the gold
night the mare

To
jump the jack and back again
I believe
I believe I got it … that joy!

It's a simple poem that says a lot. I like how each line is completley open to interpretation simply because you made compounds individual words.
