Someone's Life is in Your Hands This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Don’t be too harsh,
Or judge too quick.
Don’t spread rumors,
Or believe everything you hear.
Don’t put people down,
Or do things for a dare.
All those things listed?
They’re anything but fair.

That person you’re judging?
They’re fighting so hard
So hard that they’re breaking.
Their demons believe their mind
is for the taking.

That person you’re judging?
They’re held together with tape and glue.
All because of people like you.

Maybe they’ve given into their demons,
but realized it was a mistake.
Others weren’t as lucky to meet that fate.

So think hard before being harsh.
Don’t do anything for your “fans.”
Because maybe
Just maybe –
You hold someone’s life in your hands.
