Amelia Malone, Ohio


A heartless monster
in a bad dream,
That crosses my sight
when I wake up.

Only one person
cannot overcome war,
Only we who start it
can stop the mighty beast.

But like every human being
the fiend must have an end,
It cannot go on forever,
Aurora will tell its fate.

Even a rain cloud has to go away.
