Gray Into Yellow

Poem Commentary

This was an assignment for my English 12 class. Originally it was a story, but I though it more appropriate to be a poem. It's about one of my friends I go to school with.

Gray Into Yellow

Her smile upturned
curious and warm.
And helped fade gray into yellow.
Muffled snow
showed us how
to easily find ourselves
wonderful, forever.
Her cheeks,
so pink, so light,
lit the atmosphere brilliantly
and proved to me
there's more to life
than fake satisfaction.
A dying year,
rich and powerful
in beauty
showed me
death
is in fact beautiful.
It's winter now
and I
am unafraid.

"there's more to life than fake satisfaction." — you are beyond your years in poetic brilliance considering the short life you have lived.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
