Magnificent Nature (Poem)

By Lawrys Erren
Sec 2 Victory

Silence, Peace,
It was all that you could feel in the breeze.
It is what basically nature is,
All full of joy and bliss.

Flowers dance delightfully,
Like little children filled with glee.
Bunny rabbits come out of their burrows,
Hopping around no trace of sorrows.

Old trees stand tall,
Towering above them all,
Providing protection
Oh, yes, like a mansion.

Animals protect their kind,
It will blow your mind
With teamwork and skill.
Sad, we kill them still.

Don’t you see?
Nature is magnificent,
Yet, we ruin and destroy
A gift given to us all.

(One of the poems written in my Literature class by a Secondary 2 student.)

An Outstretched Hand (Poem)

By S2 Zeal 

Love never ran deeper or stronger than when 
It gushed not from the fountain of brother nor friend 
Love is best when it falls from the sky, or is found in the sand 
Love is best when it’s mercy from a stranger’s outstretched hand. 

Once was a day when I found myself wanted 
Memories good of my past are now haunted 
The hands of a friend, are twice evil when used 
Betraying, to point and to taunt you, ashamed and abused. 

Sadness is nothing, yet nothing is sadder 
Than a person cast to the wind, as they didn’t really matter 
The insufferable pressure certainly tore me apart 
A bitter rotten apple core, I call it my heart. 

Imagine my surprise, when my “friends” came one day, 
About to treat me like rubbish meant to be thrown away 
When you swooped in and stopped them, after a while 
Pulled me back up to my feet, and then gave me a smile. 

It really wouldn’t have troubled you, only me 
To turn around, to look away, pretending not to see 
Lo and behold, you didn’t, but instead, like a gleaming treasure out of sand 
Came to my aid, called me by my name, and took me by my hand.
