A Year

Thu, 02/26/2015 - 01:48 -- Em-Em

A year has come

And a year has gone

Time passes slowly

And drags on swiftly


With all that happened

I am bound to forget-

The year, the kiss

And the process of falling

Yet I remember all

-Even the slightest touching


Surely, as the next year comes

I’ll have attempts to forget

Or maybe, fool myself that I did

Because this futile memory

Won’t set the cages free


Yes, it all happened in a year

A year of Love

And of lesser Fear

-But not enough

To brush away the tears


And it all happened

In a Year

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
