"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]


Silver Seashells Shining on Shore

Sand Dollars Whispering Secrets to the Seaside

Searing Sun Fled into Darkness

Sweet Moon Smiling Radiance on Earth Stars

Shells in Spindles, Spirals, Scallops, and Conch

Shod in Sterling from the Sky


The author's comments:

ugh ik its short. i started a twitter account because marketing or whatever(why do i sound so obnoxious? my mental tone isn't) since I'm publish a book, Red Winter, if i don't freak out and delete it. anyways, so i didn't have enough characters for a short story or even a decent sized poem. anyway I'm probably supposed to say the twitter account name because... marketing? i really don't get twitter. anyway, before the editor deletes it i have no personal information on it or i wouldn't be sharing it on ti, and i have it in my about me anyway. its @writesparrowsun. i only really have it because teen ink isn't ideal for sharing updates and isn't mainstream, ti and yt are the only social medias I'm interested in.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."

Anyhow, absolutely awesome alliteration!

I spent yesterday in severe mortification because I am active on this other writing site--called Weekly Ramblings--and I email my poems to the woman who runs the site. Well, I emailed a highly sensitive and family-specific poem and she posted it on her site, along with a heading that was misleading and disrespectful to my family. I asked her to take down that part, and she did, but I was still regretful, so I requested to become Annon in everything. Now I am half-anonymous in a weird, embarrassing, confusing way. Ugh! I feel like I'm messing up everything I touch. This probably sounds stupid to you, but I just had to vent it somewhere. :)

Hey, this might sound irrelevant, but how do I go about deleting a post of mine I don't want on teenink? I posted something I regretted and I don't want it up, even as annon, because I'm afraid my family would discover it in case I died, and it would just be...ugh. Do you email Teenink and ask them to take it down?
