Through the Window

by Julian (age 15)

Through the window I see the
Shadows of the people that I love

Through the window I see the
Skyscrapers touching the sky

Through the window I see the
People that see me

Through the window they see
A sore, sorry dog

Behind the window is
An armored soul, heart, and mind

Behind the armor
I am peaceful, loving, and sharing

With the rock I break the window
And join the people that I love
I join the skyscrapers that touch the sky
I join the people that join me
I join the life that I once imagined

Dedicated to P.
