All Her Years Poem by Autumn Winds


Upon her face
Streaked with tears
She shows the world
All her years
The pain inflicted
The fear that followed
Hollow words
And shaded eyes
Her eyes tell more
Know more
Than the young should
For she heard the wind scream
And the seas rage
She saw the fire burn out
She saw her world collapse
Her ears heard everything
Her eyes saw it all
And in her heart she knew
But too late to save it all
She sits and cries
