My friend Margret 

Helps me with all my problems 

Sees my true self shine 


The author's comments:

Since the theme of this next TeenInk issue is about making a difference, I thought I would write about my best friend who makes a positive difference in my life. She lifts me up when I feel like falling down and lets me be myself around her.

Margret, I dedicate this haiku to you....

Note: The name of the person is being kept confidential, I changed the name in the poem from the person's original name.

Thanks, my friend just really inspired me to write this and she’s a important person in my life. I thought It would tie in a little bit more with the theme compared to my o tho Ed works.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

That's cool to use a haiku as a tribute.
