I Walk Alone

I Walk Alone

A Poem by Ella

A mist as cold as silver stones
settles in this broken road
the buildings seem to watch me pass,
staring at an unknown mass.

Ahead lies tales of misery
souls forgotten through the seeps
cracks scattered across the land
I walk alone searching for a lamb

His fleece as white as stars
no longer shining through the dark.
He is as pure as air
before the pollution poisoned and teared.

The steps I take, will one day fade,
along with this world,
oh such a devastating fate.
We all must watch as the clock ticks on
and one by one we fall into the ground
forgotten by everyone around.

But yet the hope lies within our hearts
so we must walk through the night
searching for the shining star.

A strong and convincing use of metaphor describing the promise of hope tempered with the possibie reality of failure.
"I walk alone searching for a lamb / His fleece as white as stars / no longer shining through the dark." - a most brilliant expression that could, on its own, stand as poetry!
