I slay.


Dear Teen Ink,
At times I’ve felt the block growing
But it seems you pushed me on
Letting my ink flow stronger
Letting my ink turn darker
And when I clicked “SUBMIT NEW WORK”
And turned to the home page
I found millions of thoughts
Bustling, brimming, glowing
Thoughts of teens who’ve shown me
That the freshness of young prose
Is powerful – so powerful like tides
And I’ve felt hope looking at ’em, great hope
That tells me life is not a loss
That life is in all a great aspect
Of its enormity, our minds take in what we can
The rest is with God
Thank you for teaching me to live life
Thanks a lot, Teen Ink
Yours poetically,
SilverInk

This is great and Teenink makes me feel the same way. Here we all grow as writers but also we grow together as a community. Here we all work together to make each other better than we ever thought we could be.
