A scarred placid lake
Presents an uphill climb to a
Box of melodies in
Red, yellow, blue.
The soundtrack of lungs about to burst and
Dreams of senseless truth.
First times, last times, all the times.
A pack rat of tunes.
Skinned knees, broken bones,
Birds chirping, skipping stones.
Yours, mine, ours,
A scrapbook of dreams.
A baby’s first cry,
A mother’s hard work,
An old man’s knowledge;
A collage of beautiful minds,
A snapshot of self.

I like this. I might add a little to the end, just to make it seem more complete. It kind of just ends, you know what I mean? Good job though.
