Lights Out

Written By Aarushi Mahesh (Grade 8)

The bright dots upon endless skies,
I look up; a world full of lies;

The dark blanket with lights galore,
I look up; a world, certainly not a bore,

All vanished, all gone,
At the sight of 1900s dawn,

It all disappeared with one little click,
The sound of a circuit switch being flicked,

Bulbs blazed around the world,
The constellations throwback, whirled,

A little marble stranded in space,
Desires to show we are large, thus the light bulbs embrace,

Man-made and natural, two completely different words, 
One sharp and one blurred, which one do you prefer.

In the realm of shadows, where silence weeps,
A soul enchained, where pain runs deep,
A gentle spirit, shunned and cast aside...

Sometimes all you want to do
Is disappear,
But deep down...

In the Embrace of Time

In the realm of time, where moments unfurl,
Lies a virtue profound, a precious pearl.
Patience, a companion, serene and wise,
