The World's Life

November 16, 2011
A world of desolation.
A life of no content.
A claimed free country.
A state of deprivation.
A lifeless town.
No ones getting easy street.

Second house from the corner is where you'll find her.
Up the stairs and to the left is her door.
Now you see her, but soon you won't.
She pushes past you.
Runs down the stairs.
Sprints for the door, shes out of the house.
Feet bare, pockets full, down the street she goes.
The wind is quiet and soothing.
Her feet are warm against the pavement.
She runs and runs,
leaving her life behind,
to begin again.

I honestly, truly am in love with this poem! The beginning is strong and dramatic, which really sets the stage. I like how even though it's a poem you made a location, because for this poem I feel likes it really meaningful, it's kind of personalizing the poem but still in a way it's vagueness lets it be about anyone, as if inviting the writer to set off on a journey to take ahold of our destiny! Great deep poem! 

Comment on my work? Thanks and Write On!
