These Walls Are Useless This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Iris R., Ganei Tikva, Israel By M_IML, Ganei Tikva, Israel

These walls are
Useless, you know.
They're like a
One-way mirror,
Everything outside,
The dust, the dirt, the poison, in
But nothing that is inside out, not my
Tears or these
Words that I'm
Trying to think,
Not these
Emotions, expressions that
Are playing out in my mind,
And my heart, it's
Fossilizing, growing
All at once.
This air, the air I'm
Trying to breathe,
It doesn't get in, you know.
It doesn't get in.
