Collateral Damage,
The world is
Full of thoughts
I am
Ready to begin the mission
There are people
The crulest my mind can fathom
Nothing is
Going right
Things seem to be
Falling apart in my hands
What is
Gluing back together
Everything that’s broken
My mind will change
My happiest thoughts
Will turn into
My darkest thoughts
Aiming for the stars
I am
Only to be caught too late

(Now read bottom to top)

I hope the takeaway from my poem is that people can connect with it. There are days where we all feel a little down and that's okay. There is always a way back from it.
