December Snow 2 - Poem by Lubna Hazeem

December snow
On the edge of the road
I've been sometime ago
I've been almost

December 13th
Today i turned sixteen
I've given up a dream
I've given up me

All the bridges i've burned
All the lessons i've learned
Came about this day, didn't they?
When the world was surely made

And the people around me were
Neither broken nor bitterly hurt
And the water from which i drank
Used to be a river that ran, ran, ran

But that river is frozen now
And so am i, frozen in doubt
Unshakeable, undeniably still
Shameful of December's filth

All your songs, your annoying hymns
They've never really meant anything
All this joy you replace with greed
Such hypocricy i can't believe

Though i celebrate this day every year
Some try to sabotage it in a way i fear
Oh, tonight is yours, December girl
Tommorow comes another world

Shall i have the strength to face?
That of which has no real trace?
Shall i have the courage to be?
In spite of my frozen leaves?

December snow, you're my only friend
whom i've grown to despise in recent events
Happiness, comfort me, i'm the liar among
December's festival celebrating everyone...
