What I Left Behind
Vanessa, Age 12, Phoenix, AZ
I am crying;
Dripping sorrow on the world below

I crawl slowly across the sky;
Casting a shadow of nothingness across the world

I hide the light,
By making everything else seem dark

I am burning;
Letting the rest of the world feel my pain

I am dying;
Leaving pieces of me behind while they fall

I live and I die

I am losing myself;
My life is falling apart into little droplets

I am pouring moisture on the land;
Making them taste my anger, my sorrowful pain

I am causing death;
Everyone can smell the dying flowers

I am feeling their pain,
Like a cut on your wrist that hurts more than anything

I am living my life.
A life of pain.
