Poetic Pleasanton

Inspiring youth poetry

Hot Flood

By Nick Quan

little torches are held in the lair of my spirit

hanging on the walls that hold my emotion

my spirit ignites and the fire of my being pours into history

a small relic of my feeling

to forever char its place

left amongst the countless collections of time
