"Life is what you make it"

Cryptic, never to be mundane.

Concealing the carnage…pointless and inane.

Seeking an escape; another dark omission.

Tasting the forbidden fruit...

surrender to temptation.

Dreams... a haven of complete isolation.

(Succumbing to a lethal sensation.)

Anguish…misery…lasting for eternity.

Remnants of crimson scars, dyeing internally.

A corrupt memento, the unknown exposed.

Decaying admirations.

Recover…then gradually decompose.

This is certainly one of my favorites: "I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes." -2 Samuel 6:22

When I woke up this morning I checked my email and saw a notice from TeenInk it told me that today was my day, my piece was being featured as the top voted article. Obviously they got it mixed up. As I began to read this piece my mindset was one of outrage and envy, but now that I've truly exposed myself to your genius? I bow to your superiority. You deserve to know that you've taught me my lesson, your poetry is beautiful.

God bless,
