Teen Ink!

Recently, I have discovered an amazing magazine that is written and produced by teens, so that readers and writers around the country can enjoy the literature that fellow teens create. It is amazing to read the articles your peers write as well as try to submit some of your own original work. To check it out (and hopefully subscribe to the great magazine) copy and paste the URL below:

It's a great opportunity to consider and definitely worth your time to see some of the amazing accomplishments of the people around you. Teen Ink really allows you to express yourself through writing and you can relate to many of the topics teens write about. All in all, Teen Ink is wonderful and a great organization founded for a great cause.

Rolling Hills

Hills rolling forever
Into the distance
Beyond the valley
And your old green house.

Where we laughed,
Made great memories,
Smiled, kissed, and shared
In each other's joy,
In our love,
In our lives;
In our beings,
That we thought
Would never separate-
But did.

The hills continue on
Green as the envy
Wedged inside the crevices
Of my broken heart.

Stored forever
Are the memories
Of seeing you with him
As I drive past the hills
To my new life
And a single tear down my face
Rolling, rolling.

I don't know what your perspective is on this, but my initial inspiration was that I am in Virginia over Spring Break and we were driving in Tennessee (my favourite state) and there are so many beautiful hills that I just had to write about them. The poem just came to me and the story it told (to me)was that it's from a heartbroken guy's perspective, and he was madly in love with this girl who seemed to be in love with him, but when he had to move and start "a new life," she moved on from him before he had even left. =(

Anyways, I was wondering if, included in your comments, if you could suggest any titles you think would be better than mine. I couldn't really come up with one...
