Robin in the nest
Spread your wings and fly away
But where will you go?
Cherry blossom tree
Petals floating in the wind
Flying to their deaths.
Raindrops in the sky
Dropping from the clouds above
Soaked up by the ground.
A persons hands define who they are.
Farmers (and elders) have knobby and callused hands.
While rich (or beautiful) people have smooth and manicured ones.
And fingers of scars show a man (or woman) of war!
Why does the sun rise,
They felt like fire.
They were so dire.
Stayed right on her face.
Looked just to one place.
Now fills up my heart,
Took out the kind part.
Ever shed another tear.

I initially decided to read this book in order to improve my writing by mimicking
