The Snow Around Me

The Snow Around Me

He stood there in the snow, surrounded by pale, powdery earth.

But the wind was frigid and growing stronger…

But the snow was cold around his boots…

But he was cold, cold, COLD.

The tips of his ears turned blue, and then his nose,

He fell ad terra with a stinging pain,

And he was silent

And he was motionless,

And he groped out but couldn't make it…

He couldn't make a mark,

He couldn't touch the snow.

He tried to shout, "私は世界を変える。。。!"

But the words wouldn't come.

He lost heart,

But soon,

He found comfort…in sleep.

And the single tear, which trickled down his cheek… froze…before it could even touch the ground…
