Below is a poem I wrote junior year of high school when I couldn’t put into words how I felt. We all feel a little lost and empty sometimes, and that is okay!! Poetry is sometimes how I express my emotions when I can’t quite explain the thoughts lingering in my mind. Metaphors, similes, alliteration, imagery, etc. are great ways to describe how you feel. I will be posting more of my poems on this blog (things I have written from middle school to things I am currently writing). After all, this blog is all about growth and joining me on my journey from a caterpillar to a butterfly!
The transcendent sun is shining but my mind is a rumbling storm.
The sky is an impeccable blue but my eyes sting from the deluge of rain that engulfs my sweet flesh.
The vibrant birds are singing a sweet melody but all I hear is morose silence.
All sounds lost in the glum and bitter whistling wind.
The world becomes mute;
The hums of the birds barely reaching the open roads.
