Melancholy Reflections

Melancholy Reflections

That ignorant frog

Croaking hoarse like an ill old man-

need to get some sleep


Cherry blossom trees

Gorgeous colors all around-

Swaying in the wind


Gazing at the pond

A hint of light bounces back-

Serendipity


Everyone hates school

Tests, homework, socializing-

It stresses me out


People give birth, then die

Life is sort of a sad thing-

Why do we live it?


At least I’m not sad

I’m not happy either, though-

I have mixed feelings


She was strict and kind

When she died she was handpicked

For the promised land


The lonely lighthouse

Sits at the edge of the cliff-

Guides all through the night





The Snow

The snow blocks out all light

Even from my insides

Leaving me with quite a fright

It makes me question

Am I alright?


The snow eats up all

Of my hope

Making me bawl

Have I

Hit a wall?


The snow makes me sorrowful

The feelings

I have are awful

Why is it a thing?

It feels unlawful


The snow kills

Happiness

It gives me chills

How my emotions

Are at its will

The snow rejects

Life

It protects

nothing

As it infects


The snow hates love

I am

On the verge of

Something undoable

Then I see a dove

The snow is

All of a sudden

warm-

As I sink into

A deep and

Somber sleep



Metamorphosis

Do we all go

Through metamorphosis?

Like a butterfly and

Have a mid-life crisis


Knowing we aren’t

Good enough

Hopefully changing for the better

So we are no longer a bluff


From crawling

To flight

Trying our best

To unite


From dull to beautiful

Inside and out

Will it happen

With no doubt?


Butterflies get the chance

To change

To radiant from

The original strange


Can we come

Back from all of our

mistakes

Thus far


Do we get the time

to enhance

Our personalities

By chance?

If we try

Our best

We can change

Before we are lain to rest


We can reform ourselves

From caterpillar

To butterfly

And become your own willer



Goodbye

Life causes change

Change calls for goodbyes

Whether they are happy or sad

They all start off strange


One goodbye is when

Somebody dies

This hurts so bad

Time and time again

This happened to me many times

Each time it made me more wise

Taught me to not get so mad

Just honor their lifetime primes

Saying goodbye makes a piece of my soul leaving

The rest of my soul cries

To add

Back all the love it just lost, this is grieving

Sometimes you are the one saying-

Goodbye, when you can’t help but despise

Your once beloved comrade

Knowing your friendship isn’t worth saving


Goodbyes are like being stuck

In a dark room and trying to find your way out

You are seeking the escape of grief

And attempting to find the light in the dark
