I am from simplicity,

where flowers thrive,

and children cry,

for they are filled with joy and laughter.

I am from a world filled with words,

that shape what I am, see, hear, and feel.

I am from a place where tears are shed,

for we cannot take back the past.

Where the sun only shines,

on the other side of the jungle gym.

I was once told, "Stay positive, you'll get there"

Yet the other side has never seemed so far.

But now that voice is distant,

and it is no longer persistent.

I stand here under the slide

and try not to cry,

but the lies still fly past my eyes.

I am from the land of snapping sharks,

and kind hearts.

Let there be complications…

This poem was written for my Language Class.

Go Mrs. Depippo!
