A Collaboration Poem written by
my mother and I
Running through the coastal views
And rising mountaintops,
The magnificent sunset tableau
Wraps around my troubled troops.
Though anxious they all yearned to return
To the luxuries they have set aside;
Though with wounds that still sting and burn
Its pain’s nothing next to their great joy inside.
Heedless of the passage of time
They weave schemes and designs
To achieve in their lifetime –
“For life is too short for regrets and whines.”
So, on they go, this time marching faster
Filled with hope and eager for the battles hereafter.

Yes. This is another poetry homework (a homework for Chirstmas holidays ==’) I’m supposed to make a collaboration poem together with a classmate but I didn’t have a partner. But working with my mom wasn’t really that hard. 🙂 In fact, I wanna write more poems with her in the future.
PS btw, if ever you’re wondering why if you search this poem you find it in another blog (http://totallynotdangerous.posterous.com/), that blog is my blog XD I’m currently transferring my works here because it’s going down or something on April 30.
