A poem by Caitlin Mann, sophomore English Major


I’m scared of living life

But never feeling alive

A part of me dies

Each second I spend stuck inside

The mountains have a voice

And they’re speaking directly to me

Like the call of God to a sinner

A faith so strong it fractures my bones

Tears break through

Pouring down my cheeks

Like all the waterfalls I’ll never see

They land in puddles at my feet

The weight of the pulling is nearly killing me

But I have to resist

If I’m to survive in this cruel world

Of plastic and forced government rules

But if I had my way

I’d live

Actually live
