He wrote it for a class assignment in which he had to write a poem based on the theme of Elie Wiesel's "Never Shall I Forget":
Never shall I forget that day, the first day we searched for him. Never shall I forget the trials we faced that summer. The random hail that pelted the car. Feeling the crunch of the dry dirt under my boot. Tasting the nothingness in my dry mouth. Never shall I forget hearing the desert wolves howling from afar.
Maybe I'm bias, but I think it's just the kind of thing a high school freshman could have published, if the right venue were found. Any suggestions?Never shall I forget losing every game of Munchkin we played.Never shall I forget seeing the man’s face that drove the car. Seeing the hound flee in fear of the mechanical beast. Never shall I forget chasing after the furry bullet as it ripped across the ground. Never shall I forget the ease that we all felt on the ride home.Never.
