"Every minute you spend angry is 60 seconds you lose of happiness!"

I run, I scream, I cry, I jump!
Through my thoughts I go.
I delve into the world of the yet unseen.
My thoughts that have yet to be freed.

My hand scribbles anxiously as I try to record every moment,
To capture every word.
But after a while,
some thoughts still remain unheard.

Stay away distractions,
you murderous fools!
Get away from me before you kill again,
And render another though unheard.

I cry, I scream, I run, I jump,
Through tangles of forests I go!
Across seas I do venture for the perfect thought.
And I pray that to my paper it may be brought.

The author's comments:
This piece is simply something that came to mind while I was reading pieces written by other teens on Teen Ink! I began to think of things I could write. I began to wonder if I could think of anything inspiring to tell the community in a poetic way. I soon started to think about that thought process and viola! I hope you like it! It doesn't rhyme or make a whole lot of sense poetically speaking but it's what I came up with. :)

Yep. My great inspirations always seem to come at about 11:30 at night, and when I can't write them down. The other day, I finally understood why Milton dedicated a long ode to his muse. I would, too!
