"Look, you’re only sixteen. Maybe he really meant it when he said he’d love you forever. Maybe he just didn’t realize how large forever was."

"the good girls are getting married
and the ones we all worshipped are
starting families alone
the boy i had a crush on when i was thirteen has
replaced his schoolboy charm with a drinking problem
and my first date is now a cigar smoke cloud floating
around the town he swore he’d never get stuck in
oh whatever
i wonder if the ones like me who were
always in-between
not considered cool but not uncool either
not noticed, really
are doing the same things i am
going about their days in the margins
scuffling between popularity and lonerism
and holding their tongues when someone asks
them why they’re like this because hey,
it’s no fun admitting you weren’t
very cool in high school"

hey :) do you have any suggestions for good lit mags for teen writers to submit their work (esp poetry)? it seems to me that most young lit mags are too juvenile & easy, and i want a bit of competition, so it feels good if i manage to get published!

I really don’t know! I’ve never submitted to any lit mags. I’m sorry. I’m publishing this and hoping my followers can help you out!

    Look at nature. Look at flowers. We never walk into our garden and say "Oh wouldn't that flower be so much more pretty if it were taller? Or red instead of pink?" No, we don't. Because nature was created perfect just as it is. And so are we. We are part of nature, we are how we're meant to be, we are perfect just as we are.
