About the Poem

I wrote this one day in school while sitting in History class. That's my best time to write stuff because I don't pay much attention. It's my time to sit and think about things I don't have a chance to think about in the middle of the day.

Simplicity

When your days seem gone
and your nights are still,
please take the radiating
Love I gave to you.

As you travel into waters,
let the liquid clean and kill,
purge your soul of all that hinders,
allow your mind to still.

Let the flame surround,
burn away all that's bad,
let your tears evaporate,
incinerate the sad.

Feel the wind pass through you,
take away the old,
let the new into your heart,
cherish it like gold.

Walk upon the sliver beach,
let the sand erode the skin,
guide yourself into the sun,
and melt away your sin.

Don't rush down the road of life,
cherish all these, small and big.
Still your life and stop to think -
Take life as it is, even thick and thin
