Somewhere..

Posted: January 30, 2013 by peytonporter1995 in PeytonP

Somewhere in this world,
People are dying, babies are being born, an a second chance of life is being given.
Some are grieving, others are rejoicing.
While you begin to fall asleep someone is just starting to wake.
It’s winter here and summer somewhere else.
Someone is about to start school while ours is coming to an end.

While you cry and mope about it,
Someone, somewhere is trying to do better.
A heartbreak here and someone’s falling in love there.
You cry and others laugh, it won’t be like that for long!
Hold your head up and never look back because you’ll never be in this place and time
AGAIN.

  1. Mrs. Linville's seventh-grade language arts class says:

    “Hold your head up and never look back because you’ll never be in this place and time AGAIN.”

    We like this last line a lot because it is inspirational, and everyone has been in a place of despair. This poem provides a very unique perspective and encourages us to think of others beyond ourselves.
