Jilted boy where did you go?
Did you lose part of your soul?
Did you find your self-control?
Did you get to ride your flow?

Saddened boy, were your cries loud?
Was your head buried in clouds?
Did you fuel up hidden clowns?
Punching walls for laughs unfound?

Jittered boy did you sing songs?
After seeing you were wrong?
Ever after was prolonged,
still, my spirit felt so strong.

Graceful beauty you are missed,
peaceful essence formed your kiss.
I repaid you with both fists,
now my penance lives with this.

Never wonder how I am,
I am stuck in my own jam,
live your life with a big bam!
lion hearts can live in lambs

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy

  1. Wow!!! This is amazing!!! What a beautiful piece, your rhyming is always sublime! Well done my friend 🖤🤗

  2. Thank you for this poem 🙂 I appreciated the rhymes, the syllables were on point, and I thought it clever how the first half of the poem was questions, while the last half was all statements, sort of like an answer. I interpreted it almost as somebody wishing their former friend/lover well in life, despite the heartache. I really enjoyed reading this!
