Save us

Save us

A Poem by Kami Grace


Wading through a swamp of void,
no light, but fright,
for agony and torment you cannot avoid.
   Any glyph of glee shall be destroyed,
for blindness shall replace your sight;
and your dream, nothing more than a grand fantasia.
No escape from this endless night.
   Dwell in your ethereal euphoria,
for yes, you are born with this piercing blight.

// They cried; they died;
their damned lives they defied;
save them, before more essences of life subside.

Author's Note

Kami Grace
Hi guys, it has been a while since I last posted my writing. As some of you might know, I'm a 15-year-old student in Hong Kong. This week has been disastrous. 4 suicides in 5 days, ranging from 11 to 21-year-olds. As a fellow student, I feel just as helpless and hopeless. Here in Hong Kong, no one really enjoys studying: everything is taught in an exam-oriented way. It is a common thing for us to be asked to memorize the marking scheme. Education is completely messed up here.

Sorry guys, it's a long note. But I just have to tell you guys what hell children in this "glamorous" city are going through.
