    One of my favorite parts in Teen Ink is the poetry section. In the May issue, there was feedback by Giselle saying how she thought poetry should be evenly distributed throughout the magazine. However, I disagree. I feel as if there are already a number of poems in the margins in certain sections in ...

    John “The Dog” '87. Sonya. Sonya. Sonya. All in script. E&B '94, sweethearts, encased in a heart, like the love of '94, smoothed and pointed. Pointed like the key that etched it on the board. Or the nail. (Here I sit shivering at the thought of Sonya's long breaking nails.) ...

    It is rare when an article brings tears to my eyes, but “For My Sister” by Rebecca D. was a truly touching piece. The Newtown Massacre was such a tragedy that I can't fathom being near. I live around 100 miles away from Newtown, but it still hurts to think about it. Rebecca’s genuine word...

    I don't see the important things. Why do I have to study, why do I have to wash the dishes, why do I care? Looking down is all I need to do, all I ever will do. I look down when being talked to, when eating, when reading, when walking. Especially while walking, which put me in my latest predica...

    “The Mohawk” in the March issue was a spotlight on stereotyping, something our society takes for granted. We like to judge based on looks, and only that. Cruger described how many people had lower expectations of her when she styled her hair into a mohawk. It was just hair to her, but to everyo...

    The tiger of "we" Lemon eyes in the stainer Of ourselves. Squirts bitter feelings Of all the "could've, Why nots." Dirt teeth, Granite rocks, Preparing you for a self-inquiry feast. We are our own first step, Last level, greatest fear, sour length, The tiger...

    I used to be afraid, but now I can go free. I used to be confined, but now I do as I please. I used to be restricted by tight jerseys, but now I wear billowing belts. I used to stay on a grassy field, but now I'm in a musty room. I used to feel the harsh breeze, but now I rely on my heavy b...

    ”Rejected” by Rachel C describes a process that is all too familiar for a number of us. As the title states, being denied can be a banal experience, but you can always be proactive and make the best out of your burdensome situation. In her short recollection, Rachel believes that she has “f...

    What are you? A deck of cards, always a surprise, Or a consistent dab of glue? Who are you? Do you bloom and break like a rising sun, Or keep a lock of your feelings for no one? When are you? Is it when you’re an isolated island, Or from the night to day, bathed in light? Are you? ...

    A sheer nothing is half of what I can smell. Tiny bits of must and rain travel through, but are halted by the walls of a stuffy nose. When they manage to get through, the smells remind me of days like today. Strange Novembers when the sun is gone and dark gray slither coat the sky. The rain builds ...

    “I’m never going to read! No! Reading is boring!” My mom would constantly pick up the books with the colorful drawings. I would rather look at those than read. She would drone on, each word, never ending. I would pretend to listen, but the pictures were truly captivating me. The books, I re...

    I remember living in the brick house. Whenever someone asked where I lived, I would say “The apartment!” Mom would correct me, saying that I was wrong. I forgot what she called it, but I remember the times we had there. I remember running up the long hallway, the carpet smoothing my tracks. I...

    I’m astonished at the high quality of poetry in Teen Ink, and the October issue left my stanza-craving side satisfied. After I read “I Saw a Dirty Stuffed Rabbit” by Isabella B, I found myself staring at the black and white print, my mind racing with different meanings behind the three intrica...

    What can transform a teen from an unknown freshman to the most talked about girl in school? Try a mistaken suicide attempt, a revealing blog, and drama with two of the school's most popular boys. If you think your life is rough, turn on MTV and watch these marvelous misadventures. “Awkward...
