Sonnet #1

A sonnet written by Armando Banderas in Creative Writing class.


Isabel Johnson

Bandera’s poem centers around the power behind music.

Darkness envelopes me in its cold grip

Concealing reality from my sight

Constantly taunting me with a small sip

The dark and I in never-ending fight

Anger conceals itself striking at will

Always watching my back for the red threat

With anger comes fear stalking its sole kill

The two are a formidable duet

My only savior is light’s warm embrace

At day’s end, it pushes away the dark

Feelings of belonging in my own space

Rise up bringing joy to hit the black mark

Here I sink into lyrics, beats, and fun

Music battled the enemy and won
