Poetry Project: Justin Chen's Poem


Iron Horse

Justin Chen
from Taiwan

To breathe
Is difficult.
Everything has stopped.
Wind has blocked.
Sand has fallen.
Buildings have slept.

The courage
Encounters my mind.
Everything is moving.
Wind is blowing.
Sand is flying.
Buildings are running.
I am finally
Able to ride
An iron horse.
