Poet’s Words – Hold Onto The Light

Poets Words - Hold Onto The Light

Avery Cotten, Reporter

Dark hands reaching out

Cold rushes 

and an emotionless drought


Not a star

And colors of gray and 

And you feel like escape is far


Terror filled eyes

And shaking hands

And all you feel is cold






And then


A flicker of fight

A touch of warmth

And a spark of hope ignites

A word of care from someone you love

Maybe it’ll be alright…

So hold on for another day

I can’t promise it’ll be bright

But It’ll all be okay eventually

Just hold on to the light
