Random Poem:


Afraid of falling into the sky
caught in a perfect storm
of rain, shiny pavement,
and a vivid imagination
You take no comfort,
the voices of those generations
who died as silent as they lived
now whisper in your ears
they have no comfort they can give
"Live this way" you hear them say,
they take no notice that you're so young
“By being even more afraid to die?”
you ask, receiving no reply
and face your falling,
fearing sky,
as well as open arms
