Poetic PleasantonHot Flood
Inspiring youth poetry
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
