The Concrete Lane - Rebecca Lewyn

 

The Concrete Lane

Rebecca Lewyn, Grade 8 - Atlanta Jewish Academy

 

My footsteps mark the concrete lane
Whose scarred faces lay agape
Seasons of ruined fronds will shame
No thing will ever stay the same

Blankets ice the concrete lane
Whose cold frame standstill agleam
Eyes the beauty of recurring rain
Nothing ever stays the same

Shrubs wrap the concrete lane
Whose wounds fill with fowl pests
Feels the writhing in his mane
Nothing ever can stay the same

But somewhere along the concrete lane
My footsteps come across a body asleep
I gaze at its corpse and my heart fills with pain
Nothing could ever stay the same
