A Cry To The Sky
Author: Shan


Hands steadily held out to the sky
Rain dripping down on my arms
Drops falling in my eye
I throw my head back
And ask the stars, Why.
Each drop of rain,
brings another pound of weight
In each drop I can taste,
the me who's gone to waist
I can't handle much more
The acid rain makes me melt
A me dismantled is all that's in store
It's all I've known, all I've felt
I crumble to my knees,
grasp my face in my hands
Tears slipping between my fingers
Rain sticking to where I stand
Each drop from the sky
that falls hard and uncaring
Represents the ones from my eyes
that show the pain I am baring
I'm still young and confused
I'm still needing guidance and love
I'm in silence, I'm bruised
As I cry to the stars up above
This drop is for my mother
This one for the family I've lost
One more drip on top of another
Amounting to all this life has caused
I roughly dry the water from my eyes
Stand up once again, and look to the sky
The clouds are breaking, the stars shine bright
I make a wish one more time
For my path to clear, for me to be all right

Hey there Shan,I've felt like this so many times, it's like you just can't understand why things have to happen, and then you just can't find anyone to ask, like no one can tell you the answer you are looking for.

Awesome, awesome, awesome! I loved every single word and line, how have you come to make such a beautiful poem! Your talent is so in depth and this poem does describe how I've felt most of the time when I'm all alone thinking about the world around me and how to work with it! You have made this poem nearly put a tear of truth in my eye, I wish I could tell you in person how much I love this poem! There is too much to comment on! I loved it! I loved it! I loved it! Forever more, you are a poet!
