Sun’s Arouse – Iynisha Johnson

Sun looks at the clouds like why so gray 

My name is Iynisha Johnson. I’m 21 years old and I’ve been writing poems since I was 10. I love poetry and how you can put life into pages.

Sun’s Arouse 

Stop just look at the sky above

Do the sun show the clouds some love 

Is there hatred where the sky’s should meet

Or do they look at each other  smile or speak

When the sky turns gray do the sun start to hate

Or does he go on with life knowing he’ll be straight 

When the sun comes out do the clouds get mad

Or do he wait his turn cause he’s got his chance

Do they interact since there so close

Or do the clouds get angry once the suns arose

Sun looks at the clouds like why so gray 

Can I have my time so kids can play

Clouds answer with a shower of storm 

I am the side of the sky that’s torn 

Iynisha Johnson
