SG Teen Poetry Spotlight Featuring Caison Crawford

By Caison Crawford
Tempered Glass
I'm hiding behind tempered glass Longing to survive fears impact I’ll leave this earth without a scratch Resistant to life's cracks So temper temper this tempered glass Can withstand your childish tantrums Enduring even my troubling outburst And frightening anthems
Fear crawls right through The glass I intended to Protect me from the threatening thoughts that evoke my temper I chase an inner peace that can console me But I fail every time Oh, Wile E. Coyote Will I spend my life attempting to catch the same thing? And if I catch it, then what? Will I be nothing more than a dog chasing its own tail Entailing a further desire to obtain the impossible
I see the calm When I make eye contact with the moon
