The Eldest Young One

April 13, 2010
There is a young girl sitting on a hill
She stares out over vat gardens of her life
Leaning against her back, a tree
Claiming her ring finger, marriage.
She is five years old.
In the garden are her parents' graves.
Among the tomatoes are her grandchildren's graves
She see's her highschool soccer ball
Still deflated by the fence.
Amidst the flower bed lay a body
She glanced at the leaves above her
One by one the leaves began to fade
Along with the leaves, the graves disappear
And her soccer ball inflated.
soon the sun shone through the leaves.
So bright.
So bright.
