Alive - Poem by Cigeng Zhang

Autumn gone
Take away the leaves

Leaves gone
Take away a golden season

Golden season gone
Take away the warmth

Warmth gone
Take away a heart

Heart gone
Take away the love

Love gone
Take away a promise

Promise gone
Take away the voice

Voice gone
Take away the echo

Echo gone
Take away the memories

Memories gone
Take away the colors

Colors gone
Take away the scenery

Scenery gone
Take away the birds

Birds gone
Take away the wings

Wings gone
Take away the freedom


Freedom gone
Take away the soul

Soul gone
Take away the body

Body gone
Take away the balance

Balance gone
Take away the direction

Direction gone
Take away the pursuit

Pursuit gone
Take away the dream

The dream gone
Take away the hope

Hope gone
Take away the spirit

Spirit gone
Take away the life

Oh, No, No, No!
But, Please!

Don't take all away
I am still alive

We are still alive
Leave to us a bit, to hold
