To Everyone (and the future most likely)

Audio: "To Everyone (and the future most likely)," read by Ryder Kereopa

Hear the clock ticking down the hours
until the end’s upon the flowers
and all the grass that takes this world.

“Stop writing, leave yourself unheard.”

The rhythm, rhyme, that surely stop—
we’re looking past the wretched clocks
and know we’re diving into hell.

“Sit down and just enjoy the bells.”

You think this poem will preserve the breeze,
preserve the dark and oaky trees,
the snakes that like to bicker, hiss

“We're stopping you, please don't do this.”

Write your emotions, fears, beliefs,
engrave them onto paper sheets.
Fight the abyss others often gaze

“Enjoy the light these stars have made.”

Everything about this piece has perfectly collided with the perfect words. Teen years are special and form a concrete part of a person's life. Glad I read this now. It's a beautiful piece.
