The Future

November 1, 2008
By Leah Davidson, Sherbrooke, ZZ

Death is a hole
You are the shovel
Who can dig

Love is a battle
You are the spear
Who can pierce

Peace is a puppet
You are the strings
Who can sway

Dreams are a compass
You are the arrow
Who can direct

Life is a game
You are the pawn
Who can win

The author's comments:
This is an edited version of my original poem. I changed the word "point" to "direct" because the word "direct" fits the context of the story I wanted to tell.
