Here is a poem written by Vivi, g7:

“Untitled”

Resting on top of a tall, icy mountain

Retreated inside a locked wooden shed

Is a man who is peacefully rocking

On his chair, with a book in hand

Knowing he is not part of the life

He knew before

A cup of coffee on the arm of the chair

He looks down at the warm, comforting drink

And sees a single snowy sugar cube

Dancing in the tar black ocean that is the cup

And resists, knowing he is not part of the life

He knew before

The man gazes outside the window

And there, finds a single shining star

Luminously resting in

The endless black of night

And he thinks to himself

That this was not the life

He knew before

The man then gives a low chuckle

Thinking how to tell the Lord

He didn’t want to go back, he knew

To the life he knew before

Yes, the man understood the signs

He noticed them all the time

But the last thing he desired

Was the life he knew before
