Jump

September 7, 2008
By Griffin Dellaverson, Los Angelas, CA

Life has been quite long
Without you,
Time has turned to a
Laze,
And happiness seems to have
Absented itself from my
Existence.
But,
I find that these scars are
Mending,
And though you cut deep,
So very deep,
I might be able to
Heal.
These seasons of emotional
Turmoil,
Have told me that maybe,
I find,
It’s time to let go.
So today will be different from
Every other day,
Because I will spread my
Rusted,
Tarnished
And wounded wings,
And I’ll
Jump.


The author's comments:
This poem is about the painful process of heartbreak. Though, even through that excruciating happening, somehow we realize that we must mend. Life goes on, and if you want to go along with it, you must pick yourself up and keep walking.
