To the Moon From Below This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

My mindless musings often follow
The uncertain path of the high-flying swallow
Beyond the ground that binds us to our fate
But when comes the morrow’s sun, I find I am too late

Above our heads and atop the night
It circles us, too high for flight
I reach up my hands to the shining sphere
Hoping to console this fear

The presence of this ethereal glow
Is something that we’ve come to know
When the night has a light such as this
Then soon, our world, the sun cannot miss

This is fantastic because it all fits together. You have great word choice and the poem flows off your tongue when you read it. A great piece of work.
