My latest poem

Tears of Raven

 

Once there was a black bird

Brave, strong, nothing she feared

In her deepest pain she never shattered

But now why she began to falter..

 

Once there was a scared cat

Never dared to try for failures

He always got

Though gave his all yet not enough

Life is beautiful but for him it’s rough..

 

The raven and the cat

Both choose to live in the dark

Started to heal each other’s cuts

And embraced the scars brought by past..

 

Two different being

Yet found the real meaning

That true love is about forgiving

Letting go and not clinging..
