Annual Poetry Contest

That Day

By Melody King  Sorrento, FL
2002 Contest: Honorable Mention Place

I see It happen
I hear It call
eyes don't deceive
We take the fall

life continues
struggles are fought
Time keeps momentum peace is naught

questions roll
drizzling down
off these lips
off this frown

We hold a light
a speck of flame
invisible to Theirs
unable to tame

remark
try
retaliate
Die

Our lives are wasted
drift away
like the ashes
of That Day
