On The Other Side - Poem by Lexy Sogl

On the other side
Lays a continent
Of vultures

Picking the parts
Of those, not valiant enough
To stay awake

On this side of the window
I can see only but the skeletal coating
Of melancholy

Sweating the fear
Out of me

As if I have stored it
In the solitary corners of my mind
This entire time

Most
Go in denial

They ignore
The current of misery
That runs down the mountains of life

Poisoning

all trees
all plants
all animals

despite
How close

despite
How far

We’re still
One race

Destroying
The composure
Others before us

Fought for with zeal

A zeal
That dejectedly couldn't survive

on this side
