How I Am

by Jess K.

I wait in the darkness,

Completely lost,

Like a ship on the sea

Have I been tossed,

Tears well up in my eyes

To break the dam,

This is how

I am.

In a place of dark

And cold,

Where people always die

And grow old,

Where fear breaks courage

Like a battering ram,

This is where

I am.
