enjoy reading this BEAUTIFUL, wonderful poem she wrote!
Endings Can Be Beautiful Too
I feel a salty taste on my lips,
Feel another tear slip,
The paper that had crushed all my dreams,
Sits quietly next to me,
There in silence did we sit,
Wishing I could go back and change it,
Work harder, work more,
It would’ve changed it, I’m sure
But now, I can’t, so here I am,
Watching the sun retire over the land,
I see the paper, illuminated bright,
The failure staring back at me, the peak of my life,
I clench my fists and grit my teeth,
I won’t let this stop me.
This might be the end of that dream,
This might be the end of who I used to be,
But as the golden streaks of sun disappear,
I realise it’s the dawn of a new era.
Yes, that dream is no longer here,
I can feel it, the end is near,
And this view is the perfect proof,
That endings can be beautiful too.
