These are one of my poems I wrote at 16 years old that I somehow cherish despite of the reasons behind its existence.
Shadows far above the skies
Where it rumbles, lightning cracks
A drop that fulfills your mind that flies
A loud chilling roar that shocks
Beneath the clouds, a strange lullaby
When heard will really make you cry
A voice that tells, "Its over now"
And insisted to fight, but how?
Why does a boat sails far above?
With numerous sharks that fly
A clown that sighs, a lion that cries
Beyond those shadows lie
A world without a reason to live
A home that sinks in trees of grieve
They litter the life of a butterfly
Healthy leaves fall down, they're asking "why?"
And you say,
"I'll surely die"
"For I'm no one to be praised"
"I can't even fly, so I'll stay in my cave"
Your shadow friends stay with you,
And hum to the 11th tone of blue.
