Well, I thought I should start publishing something here. This is what I wrote recently for school and decided to publish it...

The smell of spring

and roses

bursts out

of its safe hidden place

as the cool breeze

blows right through.

The trees

slowly shiver

in the high sky

and return back

to their original position,

but slightly off

from the way

they were


The roses

attempt to retrieve

their fragrance,

but fail.

Girls run

towards them and pick

them out.

Smelling them,

the roses start to

lose their fragrance

and soon, they’re left

to die

in a vase with water

for lone support.

The breeze still

carries on, blowing

through flowers, homes, candles,

kids fighting each other

until it reaches

the far end of the land:

The Forest,

covered with dark gray clouds.

The breeze

turns into wind

and blows

right through the forest

until each and every,

strong and weak,

tree has felt itself

shiver against the cold.

The rain

pounds onto the earth,

making sure

it’s definitely wet.

The wind gets tired,

turns into a breeze

and very slowly

fades away,


nothing notices

its death.

The rain stops,

oh, so very slowly,

also making sure

nobody notices

its death,

but some do,


They slowly start

to feel peace

now that the cold

and wet is gone.

The moral of my ode is:

humans and nature

are both living things,

but both entirely


Each with their

own enemies.

Man vs. man.

Nature vs. nature.

Don’t trespass

one another for only

your own




are going to die

with guilt and

wouldn’t want

others to know.
