Flashback by Arturo Olea ('17)

Morning’s coming,

Monotony, a regular day;

 Forth trees odor and rays of dawn

Dispatch pigments of an anomalous day,

In a sort of life,

 Nurturing aspects of nature,

Yearning a peculiar day

 

Outlandish,

The beast emerges,

Fiend and eagerness;

  Illuminate its malice a forethought,

Preplanning,

I was his target,

The beast approaches unhurried;

While me,

 Unaware and hypnotized,

A vulnerable prey

 

My guardian, Rocky, safeguarded me,

My soul mate and kindred spirit defeated the beast,

He was my dog, but a brother,

Rocky alternated our lives,

He sacrificed himself,

                                                                     So I could live.
