2018 Poetry Contest 3rd Place Submission


By Brandon Lara-Mack


Sadness overcomes me

With a sharp, unexplainable pain

The darkness follows closely behind

Clouds overhead doing the same

Thinking when will the storm come?

But it has already started

A frenzy of shadows

A hurricane of hurt

The pain never stops

But it does.

The sun will always rise

And it will shine once again
