Go, Girl | Teen Ink

Go, Girl MAG

By Samantha Reyes, Coral Gables, FL

Run, girl
Flee from your dreams
Too optimistic
Find a new reality

Jump, girl
On the brink of your scheme
No more ingenuity
Nothing as it seemed

Sprint, girl
No longer one
Changed forever
Your past has just begun

Cry, girl
You are broken
Heart in pieces
Nothing left to be spoken

This is an incredible poem! I love it!! I like the way it's structured, and it's something people can relate to. I'm not surprised it was published in the magazine. Great job! :)

Wow. I love the way you condense a whole story into four small verses so that each follows a similar structure, and their differences hint at the progression of time passing.

This is very interesting and well written, though hard to completely understand at first glance, which is good. Thank you

When I was 5 my mother told me the key to life is happiness. My teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. She said I didn't understand the assignment. I told her she didn't understand life.
-John Lennon (Revised)

Amazing like usual:)

It had an awesome rhythm! It was almost like a song... Great work! But I agree with the others- more meaning!

"There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends." - Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I like the pattern and the concept but it seems a bit scattered in terms of meaning...Maybe clean it up and decide what you're trying to say

I think this article really stands out but i think that you need to like put more meaning to it. I think your meaning should come right after that last part but over all this article is awesome
