Stepping Forward

This is another collection of poems. These are more cheerful and describe the way in which a girl has moved on in life and the steps that it has taken her.
It is a kind of sequel to Distraught: A Poetry Collection but it kind of isn't at the same time.
I hope you enjoy it all the same.


8. The End of the World

They said
It's the end of the world
As we know it
But it's not,
Not for me.

I would have said
It's the end of the world
As YOU know it,
because for you
It is.

Some of us
Already suffer
Living in a dark and dangerous land
Where their is fighting,
Where there is sorrow.

Some of us
Already grieve
Of a life we once knew
That cannot return.

Some of us
Already hurt
Where bullets have pierced
And sadness has made us numb.

If only it said
'It's the end of the world'
Then Ii would have been glad,
For the war would be over.

But 'as you know it'
No difference does it make
To me
Who knows much more
Than you can ever imagine.
