Celestial Amy

The Seed

You poisoned the ground

All my flowers died

Nothing can grow anymore


There is a storm coming

Which is death in the form


No forest, not even a single tree

All I have left is a single seed

I cannot plant in this now dead earth


Memories like dust

Passing me by

Remembering me

Of the things I shared

I thought were heard

But they were lost in the wind


Two paths of nothingness

Not a single light in the dark


No ambition nor expectations

Not even a little bit of hope


All I have is this seed

I know might die in the heat


I am afraid to move

Death is tempting me

It is too late


Spite has become my bread

Anger my breath

Fear my water


I don´t know how


There is a land I was promised

To a child, they lied already

Barely eight years old


I have no choice

I guess I simply got used to it

To keep moving on toward


Even if now something is different


Even if now...


Even if now, I am alone

  • The elder poet

    This is a well written poem . But not of a bright future for your world. But still hope for your single seed. I really liked it.
