Dark And Light
June Jin, Grade 6
I blindlessly stumble for miles,
With no light in the bushy isles.
There was no brightness flowing through,
The damp leaf bared forest.
With no sight whatsoever and my heart pounding,
I reached out to feel my dark surroundings.
Only twigs and leaves on the ground,
And trees as big as mountains blocking my exit.
I walked five steps forwards,
And I hear someone muttering some words.
“Welcome, welcome to my humble town,
I hope the darkness in you will drown.”
And with those carefree words,
I found myself in the most beautiful place surrounded by hummingbirds.
Everywhere there were trees as big as ten story houses,
Perfect houses and a little clean lake.
