And #3 by @oliviaa_m_lynne

As the city cried for help,
And the valleys wiped the tears,
The future stood ahead,
But the world stood no fear.
The stars seemed to fade, and the world began to shine,
But no one seemed to notice, with such little time. 
Color shadowed itself. Now we’re back to black and white.
Who knew the stars would fall as we turned on our lights?
Now the valleys cry too, and our world begins to die.
It’s too late to wipe the tears when we already scraped the sky.
The pages are now gone, and the story seems to shatter.
And we will only point our fingers when it really begins to matter.

Poem 2 by @oliviaa_m_lynne 

felt it in my bones,
like a whisper in the wind.
It moved me.
It surrounded me like a blanket,
and controlled my every move.
It swallowed me into its beauty.
I discovered and recognized the hidden.
I didn’t just feel something,
I became something.
My body became a story,
and my movements became the pages.
I was in another place.
One I’d never seen before.
It became my home.
It sheltered me from the real world.
My mind escaped.
I didn’t care if I was good or awful. 
My body became a book of creation,
pulling me to each chapter and surrounding me with words. 
It was like everything I wanted to say was said through my limbs.
It took me and showed me emotion.
It ripped my heart into a million pieces and shattered my bones like glass.
And I continued to my heart’s desire.
Till I collapsed to my knees. 
I danced.

The kid let me share some of her poetry :) Forgive the IG flood to come, but I think she’s awesome. And 14!! @oliviaa_m_lynne 

You flipped the wrong switch and look where we are now.
What happened to being safe? 
A surrender turned to a massacre.
We were handed a map and we read it wrong.
Look in the mirror.
We are all liars and criminals and cheaters.
We are all broken and refuse to be fixed.
But the ones you trust the most are now the ones you are afraid of.
The lies we are told by the chief himself. The silence of the unknown is deafening and we are just listening.
When will we end it?
When will we plant our feet and speak up?
The glass ball slipping from our fingertips yet we don’t even try to stop it.
The broken glass in the shadows now a puzzle that no one will solve.
And it happens again.
If we don’t end it now, will we ever solve the glass puzzle?
Maybe when the silence isn’t deafening anymore and all the secrets spill like rain from a cloud, we will stop such madness.
