  • Poetry > Free Verse
    I hearken back to olden days A deeper soul of classical thought and music My spleen ebbs within my heart But it is a darker place, lower than my heart It burns when music plays and when poetry meets my ear When tears are shed, the darkness aches and begs For a release I live in now and the ...

    Football is my favorite The modern gladiators Men lined up to sacrifice For the goal of victory No one really knows why They fight, except for Entertainment. The women watch Congratulating the warriors With offerings of salsa dip And sour cream and onion chips. Sour cream and onion Is al...

    I saw him first I was sure he was unreal Carved from marble By an aspiring Michelangelo His lips are pursed and perfect A testament to beauty of solemnity I can make him laugh His smile bursts in brilliant color I dream of him each night His beauty hurts each day His laugh rings in my ...

    I wonder if this world can stop, or maybe just slow down. I wonder if my gems are false, if my weight is from my crown. Could it be that I am just as false as gilded gold? Or could it be that beauty is the best lie ever told? I try and grasp a truth, but it is always fleeting. Every tender puls...

    I break down at your door Begging for an answer You drop a rose upon me The thorns cut me and scar my hands I beg you stop You cut me deeper Slashing at me with the rose The pain grows worse The thorns, now, have slashed my hands I can do nothing They are stripped to shreds Bloody pulp fa...

    Golden round coins Set into marble I am mesmerized Sell my soul, life, breath For those two coins I cannot own them I only wish For the coins to own me The coins stare at others I become insane But the coins return They purchase me I would do anything To keep those coins aimed at me To...

  • Opinion > Current Events / Politics
    I read the things people put on TeenInk. I watch the Daily Show, CNN, the O’Reilly factor. I read the newspaper. I look online to research politics. I love debate. I love to argue, and research, and figure out truth from opinion, and figure out how to make opinion into truth. So when I see people...

    I am angry To know me Is to see Pure desperation Wrinkles about My eyes I'm aged My lips sunk away Can I persist And continue? The light Does not wake me Like it used to I lay in filth I am detrimental To my family A cost But I bring nothing I am nothing I shrivel and bloat ...

    She wears a veil And sits As Ladies all should do With pointed toes A dress that glows She marvels all who see But the veil, it hides A face One we all have seen In a barnyard sty But you'll make her cry If you utter the word, "Pig" She wears a veil To hide As Ladies all...

    The mule wrote In the twilight Across a tapestry The mule wrote In the daylight Forgetting about me. His pen strode across the paper He looked worried, hurried, flurried His pen rode across the paper Then he stopped And sighed And thought How he's lied But then he went on writing ...

    I came upon a simple man A-hidden in the rock— I approached the graying man— Said, “Oh sir, can you talk”— “I can talk,” said he, “And run, jump, and play”— I asked him if he might want To do such things today “No,” said he, “For I am Trapped inside this rock...

    I look up into the sky So much and so many before have done so But it seems, to me, that it is there for me alone The blue expands, on and on, Something else that has been said before But it is true. This sky goes on forever. I walk inside, life moves on. I see them laugh, jostle, crowd; I s...

    The world was dark. Not pitch black; one lamp remained on, and the sun was barely rising, giving the room a midnight blue shade. Everything was dulled at the edges and softened by the dark. I let my eyes close again. The sensation was delicious; my mind sank down into the carpeting. With each breath...

    There's something in the air I swear That something's got to change. I only have another day To pray That these will rearrange. Help me, save me, love me true So I feel good when I leave you. Can't tell you I'm breaking apart. Can't be true Can't even start. ...

    Death might be better than waiting for you, But life always seems the better option. I do know your heart could never be true. To take such thoughts is healthy adoption. One look takes my breath and heartbeat away. Your eyes are more than gold, forcing my greed. I lust, I long, I pray for you ...
