What I See - Poem by Francisca Darko

Fragrance fills the air as the early morning greets sunshine with as heart filled smile.
Through the breeze of the cold hurl of winter, he stares unseen, a shadow among our mist.
He smirks cunningly at you with darting blue glasses of pearl
But I see
He glances playfully in a friendly was as if to say,
'I bring piece and friendship.' Though with a backwards glimpse, a dark monstrosity is born.
He parts you, breaks the chain of enlightenment.
Your purity and innocence is dragged along with his weight leaving you confused, miserably confused...
But I see
His polluted essence is revealed but the blindness of your fate abandons you: leaving courage and bravery timidly hiding, fearing for safety.
He wraps himself firm around you, guarding his victorious prize.
You can't see the melting of your own ruins.
But it is all I see.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this about three years ago when I was near ten. I had no idea what I was writing then but now when I read this over, there are some strong emotions I show through my words that I was probably never aware of then.
