Run Forward

Sun, 03/25/2018 - 15:21 -- HaleyD.

Run forward

While the wind pushes you back.

Raise your hands toward the sky,

Soon you’ll see the stars

That shyly hide behind the clouds.

Close those eyes.

Take your time

And think.


Run forward

Towards the Tree of Hope.

Look up to the tangled branches,

Later you’ll see the moon

Which peaks from out behind the leaves.

Cover those eyes,

Listen to your mind

And believe.


This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world

Most of the time if you're not moving forward you're slipping backwards. Nice poem, very upbeat.
