The Hidden Voice

By Avery Kahn, age 10, New Jersey


I feel I can never be heard
My voice lies within the deep pits of Tartarus
In the darkness which can swallow you whole
Making life nothing but a sad, creaky merry-go-round
Repeating the same thing every time
Going round and round
Only stopping briefly for a fresh breath of air
My jumbled mind spins
A collage of thoughts form in my head
Before being crumpled up and thrown away
