Night

By Renee Ewald, age 16, Ukraine

 

Grass flashed beneath sneakers.
Airplanes of anxiousness droned in the distance,
Dark figures faded in and out behind her,
The field of aggravation stretched on,
But then falling, falling,
And tumbling into a hole of exhaustion.
Roots of fear entangled her.
Beatles of humiliation crawled,
But, the sunlight of innocence fell slowly
Illuminating her cove of safety.
Mud squished between the red and blue cloth covered toes.
Ferns of shock poked out of damp walls.
A fight in her soul,
Then quiet.
