A NIGHT, A LOVELY DATE; A GENERATION

A NIGHT, A LOVELY DATE; A GENERATION

A Poem by kingblaq

Pretty boy, Bashful girl, Sweet sixteens.
A flower, A note, A lovely date.
A grey tuxedo, A black gown, Graduation night.
Fruit punches, Slow dancing, Deep emotions.
The first kiss, A second, Stained bedsheets.
Innocence lost, Love blooms, Cute couple.

A month, Two months, Nine.
Pretty boy, Bashful girl, Baby.
Complications, Tragedy, Death.
Pretty boy, Father, Dropout.
The infant, Baby girl, Motherless.

The father, The infant, Children.
A world, Cold, Unforgiving.
Love, Pain, Resilience.
Pretty boy, Adulthood, Forcefully.

A year, Two years, Forty five.
The Father, Man, Grandfather.
Granddaughter, Sixteen, Bashful girl.

Bashful girl, Pretty boy, Sweet sixteens.
A flower, A note, A lovely date.

A black tuxedo, A grey gown, Graduation night.
