Welcome to I Am Youth Poetry Month

Forever Lost

She tips.

She toes.

She runs around the road.

She runs around the block.

What does she see?

It’s quite a shock.

A show for all the eyes to see, it draws her in, forever to be lost.

She’s in the show.

She can help others to be forever lost too.

You can’t run or hide from it

A symbol for pain

Tears of Humanity

Anger, quick and sharp it takes control like a bull charging.

There is only the bull and what it’s charging at, no stopping.

I’m a raging storm, this is my emotion as my tears stream down my red face.

I’m full of sorrow and sadness that is heartbreaking, tear-stained cheeks as I am the humanity taken out of a man.

His humility forcefully taken by those in power, while he weakly stood there and took it.

His cries are mute, he is worth nothing?

He is still human! Humanity taken by one who has already lost his long ago, he has now a stain that will be on his shirt that cannot be cleaned off.

And what of the person whom he took from?

He will now have a scar for life, doomed to have a reminder.

If this man can get through this pain, he will become a stronger man.

But if not?

Then darkness will be his shadow, always there, always in pain.
