A Poem

By Shakeel Thomas
(a 14-year-old poet)


As we live our lives

we are constantly hit by waves of emotion

The grandest of them- nostalgia

Longing for the past leaves us drowning-

in an everlasting universe of memory

Commemorating the occurrences of this crucial world,

leaving us,

drowning in the spiritual void of our own mentality

As we are hit with waves of sadness,

we are drowned in the waters of grief

Only to be conveyed on to the shores of happiness-

by the waves of relief
