Stolen blood, veins of war
Steele on temples so many years,
Tears reveal what the heart can’t speak,
The clock betrays the heartbeat.
Words hemorrhaged on paper
The only weapon sharp enough,
Can you really take anything from me
When I’m already so close to death?
Left with nothing but the air I breathe,
As War took it all from me.

About the Author
Sarah began writing poetry in the 3rd grade, her first collection of poetry being called ‘Poems Galore’. There were several times throughout life when she had to stop writing, times when she was silenced by life, was void of feeling, or felt too much to put anything on paper.
She finds solace in the elegiac poetry that she writes today. She began sharing some of her pieces on social media and realized how much feeling her poetry brought about in others, her ultimate goal. Sarah has always wanted to be an author and thanks to Creative Talents Unleashed and their publishing contract it was brought to fruition.
