To Everyone (and the future most likely)
by Ryder Kereopa (Australia)
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.”

Wow. These words hit hard for me, as I has the same experience recently. I really love how you described the feelings and the ending was really amazing. This helped me a lot. Just wow.
I hope you keep on writing.

Wow you are so talented! I relate this a lot to my paternal grandfather who passed away two years ago and is very similar to yours. Sometimes family can judge you but I agree you should learn to live in the present and be happy with out having a fancy job/being married. Keep up the great work!

You've done a wonderful job here.
Your intricate descriptions of the race and the emotions conferred by it is excellent.

This piece is a beautiful reminder of how ugly teenage years can be. It's real and it hurts but it's so good. Please never stop writing!
