Cyclone

I picked up all the pieces that were left behind This is definitely not the life that I signed But I would never like to stay in this state Creeping hopelessness, I'll find a way to escape

Cyclone is a poem written by Reiu Somao-I and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Oh Snap! for the month of August

 

Cyclone

 

Bended trees

Shattered glasses

Broken roads

Collapsing dreams

Where do I start when even the finish line is gone?

I looked back and think of what I have done

Did I mess up in my past life for me to sink low?

I need to regain my strength and wait again for it to grow

Black clouds

Gray doubts

Crimson dew

Feeling blue

Uncertainty filled my tired body and numb heart

Holding to that thin line of hope that seems to fall apart

My desperate prayers are the only thing I could chant

My eyes linger to the unknown light in my front

Cold nights

Flickering lights

Stomach grumbling

Bodies trembling

I picked up all the pieces that were left behind

This is definitely not the life that I signed

But I would never like to stay in this state

Creeping hopelessness, I’ll find a way to escape

Building myself up

Climbing again at the top

Nothing could make me stop

This is not enough to make me drop

Life goes on

Let bygones be bygone

This is a cycle

I refuse to be on idle

Life is like a wheel

Never stops spinning

Sometimes we need to go with the flow

Even though it is against our will

If I couldn’t avoid such loss

I decided to change its course

To diminish its destruction

I’m giving all of my attention

To push for another victory

This life of mine won’t be filled with misery

To be stronger than I’ve ever been

I’ll be the best that you’ve never seen

Regret no longer occupy any space

Guilty would never be the reason to reminisce

If I ever get hit again by this cyclone

I know better now, I’m not alone
