All that glitters is not gold and not all who wander are lost -J.R.R. Tolkien


It will break me down
Bound to the unknown
Waiting for a light
At the end of this dark tunnel

Bound to the unknown
I grope for warm memories
At the end of this dark tunnel
No light can be found

I grope for warm memories
While shivering from the cold
No light can be found
And no light will be given

While shivering from the cold
A hole in my wings
And no light will be given
As I fly away

A hole in my wings
Bound to the unknown
As I fly away
It will break me down

This is one of my English assignments. The poem is based off of J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.
