Heat Of The Winter - Poem by Blaine Strong

Its about the golden leaf that catches the corner of your eye in the dog days of summer.
Its about a trophy its about class its about the way the sun bakes your skin
Its about the will to win.
I fought through the storm and came out on the other side still punching.
It's about determination over fear,
What is fear?
Its about those mornings the clocks stuck on 7 but she's still at noon.
You can't tell the stars from the moon,
They are too far away for retinal examination.
Its about remembering the smile of a stranger who shared an umbrella in the rain, the quiet look of desperation on the beggars hand. The screaming of a newborn child when he first discovers hunger. Loneliness.
Its about all these things existing in one moment, can you see them. One thing I can assure you doll.
