Meeting Sadness
By Karista Josey
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2002 Category: Margaret Mielke Memorial Poetry Award

I met Sadness
Its tears drowned me.
It danced with my feelings
Until I fell
Shaking me all up
Inside and outside
Mixing up emotions
Turning them into one beg tear
That slowly rolls down my cheek
When I met sadness
Its strength pulled me in
Tied me up
I couldn't move
I struggled and struggled
To escape its ropes
But I couldn't move.
