Almost Shot

Almost Shot

A Poem by SammMG

From conception to carefree in what lays ahead
Bullets barely miss their target
A naive smile painted is a red herring
For he feels far more than he lets on
Placed as a jigsaw of summer's landscape
The boy is nothing more than a piece of winter's ground
Try and try as he must
No contortion or force will make him fit
People will talk unaware of his shadow
Punches leave spades of vivid violet
That poor boy will cry 
But he still goes on
For the bullets will graze
But they still miss

wow.. did you experience this my handsome friend? i hope not ... it is dark, and intense. vivid as always and rich in imagery. all the sensory details made me relieve this moment and gasp in relief.. a heart that wants to end, yet has to put up with such cruelty :( really a sad one Samm
