Treasure Island

Sandra Kelley

(May 27,1999 / Waco, Texas)

Silence


Looking around
you see your home
those you love
things you care about
things you wish you could change


In that deafening silence you realize
you see the small things you hadn't realized
you see the little things people do
you notice much more than before
you think about your life


Silence brings thoughts of
what you've done in the past
what you are doing in your present
and what will happen in your future

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i think every once and a while people should just sit in silence and think about they're lives. Im 14 and I already know what I want in life and im willing to work for the things I want out of life. I accept my past because it made me the headstrong stubborn girl ive become, i love my present because I have so many things to be happy for, and I will accept my future with open arms even in it beats me down ill pop back up as ive done before
