Favorite Quote:
Become the change in the world you want to see. -Gandhi

By a world of steel knives,
Haunted for the rest of our lives,
Where it never, takes FLIGHT,
And blatantly ignores our plight,
It bleeds and breaks
And never ceases to Ache-
As each small, insignificant minute ticks by,
It’s all we can DO-to not ask WHY.

The bottomless abyss,
Destroys all that we wish,
But time will eventually heal the wound
Maybe not now, maybe not soon

The author's comments:
I was inspired by an Edgar Allen Poe poem "Dreamland" and I decided to do an imitation poem. I had lost a lot of people who I loved so doing an imitation of the poem gave birth to the idea of my poem "Heartbreak".
