Paper Cranes (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

paper cranes and aero-planes
above us there is only sky
pondering the clouds so high
like mountains without tops
paper cranes and hurricanes
there is no gas and no relief but people smile through their grief
and move on with their lives
paper cranes and window panes
people stop and look inside
and wonder why we run and hide
living in a glass house
paper cranes and summer rains
flowers bloom in vibrant hues
and everyone has lost their blues
dancing in the lazy sun
paper cranes and aches and pains
tell me, doctor, what is wrong?
Inside your heart there is a song
who will want to hear it?
paper cranes and other things
are sitting in a pile
who will want them now you’re gone
and dead for quite a while?

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
