Falling
HisPoem

Afraid of falling into the sky
 1
caught in a perfect storm
 2
of rain, shiny pavement,
 3
and a vivid imagination
 4
 
 
You take no comfort,
 5
the voices of those generations
 6
who died as silent as they lived
 7
now whisper in your ears
 8
they have no comfort they can give
 9
 
 
"Live this way" you hear them say,
 10
they take no notice that you're so young
 11
“By being even more afraid to die?”
 12
you ask, receiving no reply
 13
 
 
and face your falling,
 14
fearing sky,
 15
as well as open arms
 16
