The Clouds Still Cover Us

We are not bad people
We just did bad things.
We’re not bad at being alive
Our lives just tore us
left fighting to survive

We are just broken creatures
From a broken land
Our wings cracked
By another’s hand.

We are rounded
And grounded.
Imbalanced and

Our disappointments never drowned,
Confusions never crushed
Even with souls open for the sun,
we are covered with clouds.

Showing work to other people is always scary, but, as a young and enthusiastic poet, I’d love to know what you think of my words in the comments section below! Follow my blog for more:
