Falling To Heaven - Poem by Shannon Greenwald

Falling to heaven with grace and dignity
For the perfection of those around you
But its dismay to you in everything you do
The world around you chaos in your eyes
Yet beauty for others
The sun doesn’t shine a single day
But years to the soul of another.
For your heart a beat is skipping,
The glass broken on a sheltered life,
The music is too loud upon your body,
Your aura bleak in the midnight ride
The car is empty upon your deserted road.
The joy is for others and never for you,
You’re falling to heaven like never before.
