Troublesomes - Poem by Jinny Kim

Do you wish to be caught?
In a worldwide drought?
No rain to make its beautiful beat.
And nothing but intense heat.
No rainbows to come.
And water left, only some.
Or a thunderstorm?
Hiding in your dorm.
All the lights out.
And you're too scared to shout.
No one but you.
You can't believe this is true.
Maybe in the middle of a war.
Hiding in an old bar.
Hearing gunshots loud.
Inside a small crowd.
Tears coming freely.
You want to live happily.
Or the end of the world.
In a ball you're curled.
Knowing the end is near.
And wondering when it's finally here.
Hoping its a dream.
Working to wake up as a team.
Love your life, and who you are.
Because inside, you're a star.
