All Away

April 21, 2008
By Harper Higginbotham, Bastrop, TX

I know you see
The change in things
And it’s okay
To be between
They say
It’s all
Up to you
That happiness
Is what you choose
And you are still
So much a child
But what I’d give
To see you smile
Don’t hide it all
I heard today the vase
It shattered
Though you act it doesn’t matter
I see fragments on the floor
And small cuts on you evermore
So you say
Life’s a bore
But no one wants
To hear it anymore
It’s okay
You don’t have to
Hide it all
