My first poem I wrote back in high school. I thought I'd share some of my old work in my portfolio.

Little to skinny,

she was.

From imperfection,

to perfection.

Isolation,

her starvation;

Upcoming malnutrition.

Such obsession,

this oblivion;

The tension,

so many questions.

Believed oppression,

turning depression.

Not religion,

An addiction;

Used abbreviation.

Reincarnation;

Baby scorpion,

release your poison.
