Damaged One
by Lizzy Bishop

Maybe it's a dream,
You falling in love with me.
Or maybe it's fate.
The way you set my heart free.
But those eyes of yours,
Have left me on my knees,
Keeping me from ever wanting to leave
 
 
 
A winter Night
by Amanda
 
Snowflakes fall across the sky
It takes forever for one to pass by
The lights above make the snow glow
I watch this beautiful sight from my window
 
The fire place fills the house with light
Only a couple more days till Christmas night
The kids across the street are all in the snow
Everything so quiet you can hear the wind blow
 
I can't believe the winter time is here
The sun is almost out and the snow may disappear
The coldness outside fills the air
I am excited to give the gifts I bought and share
 
 
 
Dyslexia
by Marie. Age 18. Wales uk
 
I have never tried so hard, 
only to get nowhere. 
Small mistakes follow me. 
they change my work purposely.
They must do,
Because nobody can make as many mistakes as me.
Everyday words change
Some days there right and some days there forgotten.
On paper numbers can be easy.
In my head they are lost
My daydreams distract me
Keeping me out of reality 
Why am I stuck like this. 
Why am I trying so much harder to move forward and find I'm 10 steps
behind everyone else.
Why am I me.
And who what else can I be?
 
 
My Room and I 
By Jasmin age 17 from Chicago, USA 
 
My room is organized
My room is clean 
My room has colors of 
Baby pink, violet and green 
Colors of many dreams 
Dreams trapped inside this room 
The window sills are marble cold; 
the floor is polished with force 
Yet a blotch sullies one spot - 
It will never fade away, it will always stay 
Home yet prison 
Refuge yet trap 
Ally yet enemy
Paradox is home 
 
My room and I 
we are one of the kind
we are the same 
My room and I 
 

 

Poem: Turtle by Maysa


An emerald set upon the beach
glides through murky water, blue and green 
A head pops up, but that's all we can see
For this creature is, 
a mystery

 
Blind Smiles
By Tania age 16 from Manchester, Uk
 
Waiting in the darkness of opened eyes
She stands
Never knowing the colors
Of blue, red or yellow
She stands
But with her heart
She sees all around
And she smiles
And everyone stops and stares 
At her blind smile.

Things Matter
By Martha age 14 from Harlow, UK
 
Friends matter
But those closest to you, 
Are those who disappoint you most?
Love Matters
But when hate is stronger,
 Its bonds cannot hold no longer 
Happiness matters
But when something goes wrong
Somebody gets stung
Truth matters
But when a lie over comes a lie
The truth has probably died
Respect matters
But when it is lost
People go astray and pay the cost
Life matters
But people take it for granted
Become lost and negatively enchanted
Things matter
But sometimes we forget
And look back and totally regret.
 
 

Poem by Keshawna Miller
 
Days and nights I prayed for you to get well soon
One late evening GOD came in your hospital room.
I asked GOD can he remove the heartache and the pain?
And remove the dark cloud that is filled with rain?
I told GOD that I didnt want you to struggle nomore
And he said Dont worry, he brought you through this before.
When I thought things were getting better 
Its like I had received a bad letter.
You were getting worst off sick
So GOD said he was missing an angel in heaven and you were the one he
picked.
Nights after nights I questioned why and I even cried
Cause when GOD called you home everything in me died.
Its really hard with you not around 
I know you in heaven smiling down.
Until the date we meet again
In my heart is where I'll keep my little sister and my friend.
GOD said question me not for I make no mistake
But I wish this was all a dream and a fake. 
I will be missing you day by day
Rest in peace to my little sister Kaka.

Is It Right?
By Charquela age 15 from Louisiana
 
My smile NEVER fades away when my phone shows your name.
I'm happy for some reason,
Everything I say, gets sang!
Is it right for me to behave like this?
 
You're everything I need, 
the prince that always appears in my dreams. You're perfect in every
aspect.
No flaws, no mistakes. Is it right for me to think this?
 
Sometimes you make me worry, sometimes you have me scared!
Sometimes my mind is filled with doubt.
Why? Because I'm wondering if you will always be here.Am I right?
 
But when I get past all the fears, the doubt and the worries,
I find love and affection ; My wants and needs; My joy and happiness.
You're all I need...Right?
 
 
 The candor  of  a  broken  heart  
by Nkossi Ntaisa, 18, from Johannesburg,South Africa
 
I sit with myself,
I have conversations with myself,
I berate myself,
I commend myself.
 
I think of times past,
I ponder upon laughs shared,
I muse about arguments forgiven,
I simper at those forgotten.
 
I concede my wrongdoings,
I forgive yours.
I wonder how?
I wonder why?
 
I fail to fathom why,
My conception loathes to accept,
To accept the candor that is.
The candor that it is finished.
 
Again, I berate myself.
Again I commend myself.
Moreover, I confuse the device of thought.
Worse, that which pumps sanguine,
It beats to the rhythm of a rock lullaby,
 
O! How I long to smile yet again,
How I long to watch the reflection of self.
Yes, in those pools of brown that pizzazz me times and again
 
Is it time to run along?
Should I lay in wait?
Must I culminate all feeling?
I know not.
I feel a lot.
 
 
Poem by JaredClay age 18 from Vidalia, LA
 
you're the glue holding my heart
without you i would fall apart
be with me is all i ask
but your love is wearing a mask
riding a roller coaster in hells kitchen
my heart is right but minds itching
why don't you feel the same
my love for you is no game
i walk these streets with you in my heart
hoping these streets won't fall apart
 
 

Care?
by JaredClay age 18 from Vidalia. LA
 
plans are made
hidden by shade
plans fall though
held by glue
not very strong
doesn't hold long
wind keeps blowing
people stop knowing
past is forgotten
life is floating
suspended in air
nobody cares
 
 

MONSTER
By Katie age 15 
 
You are neurotic person,
An isolated mess,
Suffocating your rage,
It comes out like poison,
Affecting everyone one,
Changes you,
A disease in your mind,
Trying to avoid abandonment from me,
It created an obsession,
It pulled me away from you,
And made you lose yourself. 
 
 
Poem by Santana Page
 
You might think you are big, but in the eye of the world you are very small 
You need someone to love you, need someone to pick you up when you fall
If you dont have that it's because you don't try, i know you cry cause i cry 
It's nothing to be ashamed of, just thank the man up above he will
always show you love, he will always be by your side
he thinks about you 24/7 cause he will forgive your sins,
and welcome you in heaven


 

HAPPINESS
by Chintan age 13 from Faridabad, India 
 
Happiness is 
a treasure,
it's a pleasure,
which we cannot measure,
it is a heart's desire,
through which we get inspire,
it takes one higher,
never allows to retire,
it is meant for everything,
breathing,
laughing,
living,
smiling,
all the positive essence
drowns in its presence
it is scattered everywhere
but it is found very rare,
it's never less,
after all it's Happiness


 
Heavy Weight
by Melony
 
Nobody knows how long I ve kept this burden
Buried inside my chest.
The hurt I ve suffered for so many years .
Does anybody know how it feels to be different?
 Or how it feels to not live a normal life?
It feels like someone stabbed you right in the chest without any
warning .
 
Is there any hope for me?
What can I do to lift this heavy burden from my chest?
Day by Day I wait for a miracle to happen.
But now it s too late, my life is over
And my body is slowly fading away 


 
Poem by Kelly Sappington


everyday is the same
like the confusion of a wave
i struggle through the pain
these waters i must brave

i don't know which way is up
i don't know which way is down
i feel like giving up
but if i don't swim i'll drown

I STAND HERE ALONE
Kelly Sappington

no one by my side
he said i couldn't do it
when i found out he lied
i have nowhere to go
i have nowhere to turn
just keep moving forward
and my past shall burn
no one here to stop me
and i keep moving on
no more falling to my knees
my worries have all gone

 

 

RETURNED LOVE
By Brian age 17 from Kildare

I can't believe you feel this way
But I have to agree
We're made for each other
It's just so clear to see

Let's get married, then have kids
And buy them sweet toffee
I want to spend some time with you
My great wife, Niamh Coffey
 
 
MISSED
by Noemi Serat age 18 from Philippines

I missed some memories in my past
But i hope this emotion of mine will last
Missing my whole family maybe turn into crying
And it makes me feel that my heart is dying.

I missed the time when i'm not all alone
I mean when my family were all in home
When we eat together it was so nice and fun
'cause we talked and laughed together as long as we can.

But as years passed by they've gone one by one
'cause they met their own lovely wife and husband
I felt like it was all just a dream
My life started to change 'cause i'm not with them.

Now i'm gonna look for a kind and good partner
So that i won't feel that i was just a dreamer
For me, being alone is not easy to bear
I'm gonna find my adventure starting from here.
 
 
Time
by Abby Organ age 14 from Illinois

Time, time is before us.
Rush here, rush there.
But stop, slow down or you might miss what's right in front of you.
What's most important is right in front of you.
Time, time is before us.
 
 
A Poem for You
by John

We claim that we're friends, yet why does it seem,
That you try your hardest to push away from me?
You know that I need you, but want for us more.
But you throw my heart away to the floor.
There in the dirt, it beats steady and true
And every thump, every beat, it's for you.
I'd rather be your friend than not have you by
But really, I just want to be your guy
All of the girls in the world could chase me until their feet were
black and blue.
But still, this boy would have eyes only for you
 
 
LIFE
by Tammy

You only live once so enjoy it while you're here,
No time to stress, make mess, and have fears,

In order to make it through life you have to climb high mountains,
cross rockey roads, and make tough goals

Looking back on the past is a waste of time,
Why look back when you can't erase the lines that you said and the
mistakes you made.
 
 
Gone
By Britton age 13 from Austin,TX

I was asleep beneath the sun
When I felt water, splash
on my cold stubborn feet
I was awakened

I sat up to find him gone
I could feel the burning sensation
of tears, behind my eyes

They began to roll down ,
my hands wiping the glisling
crystals, off of my sadden face

After I finished wiping the crystals
off my sadden face
I began to start my new journey
as a daughter with no father
 

 

MY LOVE
By Niamh age 15 from Chessington

I can't contain it any longer
I really have to say
I love you and I think that
We should live our life this way

Wouldn't it be great?
We'd make the perfect couple
That's why I want to be with you
I love you Brian Supple
 
 
 

Here I am, alone.
By Lindsay age 13 New York, US

Here I am, alone.
Do I give myself away,
Wearing thin down to the bone?
Who am I today, if nothing but a mystery.

Here I am, alone.
Consumed by this emptiness.
A melancholy tone,
Derived from being such a pessimist.

Here I am, alone.
Condemned to this desolate life.
I welcome the unknown,
Tired of such strife.

Here I am, alone.
So painfully alone.
 
 
WITH BATED BREATH
by Mary Gee age 16 from tulsa ok.

With bated breath i wait,
for things in this life to change,
begging for my eyes to never lose sight, as i crawl on through the dark.

With bated breath i wait,
for the light to draw so near,
pleading for my soul to never lose hope, for this place is full of
despair.

With bated breath i wait,
for joy to cover up my hate,
in this place where iv been for so long,
nothing i do is right, everything is wrong.

The walls i built to seal them out, to keep me safe,
keep falling down like crumpling faith, ill stand my ground and rebuild
them up around.

And, when im done,
they'll have their fun,
the monsters,
as they raor, fight, and try to steal my life away.

Ill survive,
ill fight my way out of this place, ill make it.
ill reach the peak of this mountain,
that ive fallen down so many times.
knuckles and hands raw and sore from catching myself, with the weight
of the world pressing down upon my shoulders,
ill look out over everything, when im at the top,
ill close my eyes, and,
With bated breath ill wait,
for my new beginning.
 
Poem by Earon Calkins
 
Some say fear is only in the mind,
I d have to agree.
Our fears are so small,
Yet we find them so difficult to overcome.
If we just believe in ourselves,
We can overcome anything.
Some say fear is a bad thing,
I say we all have something to learn about ourselves,
And only our fears can teach us.
It's a monster in our closet,
Which we must overcome.
Fear is not our enemy,
It should be our friend.
'Cause in the end its all we have.
In the end it's not really fear at all,
In the end it's us not wanting to let go,
It's us clinging to our safety.
But I'll let go,
And when I let go I'll be free.
Will you do the same?
 
 
 
You Told Me
By Tamara S. age 15 from White Cloud,MI

~You told me your love,
I told you mine.
~You told me what was on your mind,
I told you what was on mine.
~You told me how you felt,
I told you how to feel better.
~You asked me friends?
-n- I said forever!!

 

I dedicated this poem to my best friend: Noemi Rodriguz!*
 
 
 
You.
by Autumn age 15 from Bells, TX

I smile when I see you.
It happens every day.
All the little things you do,
just take my breath away.
I always think about you;
You're constantly on my mind.
You're like a love song stuck in my head,
I sing it all the time.
I can go on for hours on end
About how much you mean to me.
Sometimes I wonder about the two of us
And if we're meant to be.
 
 
  
The Words
Laura age 18 from Houston, TX

Why is it that I cannot hear
The word so dear
That is meant for me?
Lost in the darkness just inside,
Where I tend to hide
So that I can be free.
Free from other words
That chirp louder than birds
And replay in my memory
That one word that desires the day
As if only to say,
"You CAN be happy."
Maybe my heart will have the chance
Just to dance
To a song so lovely
A song with no beat
Only where eyes meet
Swaying to an enchanted melody
I guess in a way
Hopefully someday
Someone could even love me.
 
 

The Crying Sun
By Maciel age 15 from Orlando, FL

the sun shines
but yet it rains
there is no cloud in site
could it be that the sun is crying?
but why would it cry
is it that we are ignoring her?

we pay no mind to her
go through our day withought saying thanx
she looks down
wondering why
is it that we are to busy?

she thinks
maby if I get closer they'll notice me
when she dose we complain about the heat
or maby if i go farther away they'll miss me
when she dose we complain about how cold it is
she is left unnoticed
and becomes Indecisive
 
 

BROKEN HEART
by kirthu age:15
 
Is that you ,who said that?
The phrase you said was short,
But the hurt you gave was huge.
Is that you ,who said that?
The phrase you said was hard to accept,
But my heart was easy to break by that.
My mind always think about
The good things you said to me,
But not the bad.
Hope that I will forget the verse, you said
And fix my heart.


 

BOY
By Adoria age 14 from Rochester, NY

 

I wish I were a boy
So my heart won t be played with like a toy
So I can run from my responsibilities
And have endless joy
I could wear what I want
And say and do what I desire
Play ball with the guys
And wouldn t have to sit and admire
I could run after girls
And have as many as I wanted
I could play with their hearts
While they come forgive me
An satisfy my parts
I d get praise from my boys
Treat those girls hearts like toys
But I know how it hurts
I know how it feels
To get ignored
But to keep it real
If I were a boy
I d treat her like my queen
I d give her all my attention
And never grow mean
I d promise to be faithful
Because I know I d be grateful
.If I was a girl
I d love him forever
I d walk down that aisle
Get on my knees
And make him my king
.But if I were a boy
I d hold her forever
Break her heart .never
She builds heart with joy
And never treats it like a toy
 
Moving On
By Kiana age 13 from Florida, USA

Today, I will let the memories fade
Goodbye, was the last word that I added to your lies
Hope, is gone, for the story that we made
Writing a new chapter, could be too hard to try

For now, I guess I'll take a breath
And eventually, I'll forget the rest

Letting go of you, means I'm losing a part of me
I don't know if it's true that I'm better without u
I'm glad to finally have you good and gone
but I don't know if I'm happy that I'm moving on

The day seems brighter when you're not around
Then I turn the corner, I start crashing down
That simple thought, brings me back to last year
All of a sudden I'm drowned in tears.
I guess u don't know, that it's hard to be rejected
And pushed away
the rain came down
And washed away our love.
It's really breaking my heart.
Yea, my life is falling apart.


 
Poem by Shauna
 
I am more than a canvas painted grey.
I am more than a sculpture made from clay.
I am more than that of which you say.
I will be more than I am today.
I will be more someday,
some way,
so stay,
As I reap the sins of yesterday.
 
 
A book of memories
by Summer age 18 from Inverness,fl

Hidden in the attic,all the way upstairs, is something very
special,That i would like to share.My hopes,my dreams,old
photographs,of good times and bad times that make me laugh. The
joy of a hug,the thrill of a kiss,leaves me to remember the
pure,simple bliss.I cry for the fun,and giggle for the pain,I
enjoyed the good life I was able to maintain.The thoughts and
wishes,They all stay with me, all of these contained in my books
of memories.
 
 
Poem by Alfie

There I saw him
Squatting in the silhouette of sand burnt trees
He s crouching there on an island in the river Styx
A sun crossing his prematurely aged face
He says join me brother
And let us bow down to the stars that made pacts with men
Men that do wretched things
Let us welcome them, and embrace them with open arms, for the
depression in which they have left our world
Let us cry happy birthday Zimbabwe!
 
 
Love is evil
By Filip, Sweden

I have fallen
I fell from a steep
I fell very very deep
The only ladder leading up has been broken
All my hope of getting out of here has been choken
I have fallen
I fell in love with you
 
 
orget about...
By Tamara age 15 from White Cloud, Michigan

Forget about your problems,
and just be your self.
Forget about drama,
and just be who you are.
Forget about your life,
and escape...
just for the moment!


Poem by Alison

I watch as you walk away
A tear sliding down my cheek
Headphones on,but no music blasting
I loved you.......once
I ran trying to hid the tears....even from myself
Music on blasting the world away
An arm around my shoulder
Telling me I'm okay
You broke my heart and with it my dreams
I head to class,you walk down the hall
Ask me if im okay...and i walk away
 
 
Lament for the Golden Days
by Mark Hallam

I miss innocence
The everlasting youth
And how the grownups
Tell lies shadowing truth

And the careless days
With dodge ball in the gym
Where, at me, kids scream
Not that kid, I want him!

And the sunny days
Sitting out at lunch
Where instead of nice
Kids can kick, yell, and punch

And to you critics
Rest assured, I would
And I ask of you
Where's your childhood?

For in this world
There's one golden truth
You must grip your past
The decaying youth

 
 
 
Poem by Shiloh James
 
Because I love you
I'll live a little longer,
Through the misery of a mother,
Hating her son,
Because he loves another boy,
And won't be giving her,
The absolute perfect family she craves,
She curses he husband's grave,
Because born unto her 16 years ago,
A son with the want to love that one boy,
To cherish,
Kiss,
And be held by,
To love him like he loves no other.
A boy to whisper his secrets,
To give himself fully and completely.
To be happy in complete perfect peace,
Which his mother never knew.

When Defining my Life by Heather Ahmad
 
The world is different and difficult
And maybe it's for the best that it happened
It can be frightening at any time
A fight can explode at any moment
We've fought and we've cried
We've seen all great and scary moments
Closing the doors around my brother
To get him away
When defining my life
I'm the one that keeps this family together
I want to say something
I know that what I say
Will not change anything.
This is the largest thing that drives me insane

Poem by Clarissa Simms
In the sea of tears
we try to swim away from our peers
In the sea of blood
our hearts seem to flood
In the sea of pain
there is nothing keeping us sane
But in the sea of the broken
everything is left unspoken
 
 
 Sometimes love doesn't last
By Katrina Renee, Age 14 from Brooklyn, New York.

Love is like a bulldozer, it will tear you apart.
At first its nice, but you don't know when the hurt will start.
You two are always together
Thinking it will last forever.
Holding hands
In the park eating pecans
Saying "I love you" and "I love you too"
I may misconstrue
But those words are taken to heart and are hard to undo.
So you two are texting each other and calling each other and
enjoying one another
And then there's a misunderstand
And even though you try to stop it, the argument keeps expanding
The lies start
The cries start
And everything is just ruined, broken apart.
Happiness gone
Everything is wrong
Laying down listening to depressing songs.
Of course eventually things will get better.
And that's why I'm writing this letter
Because I had a broken heart
But I'm healed, for the most part.
And soon, if your in the right state of mind, you will heal too.

 

 

Demonic by Grace

To steal a soul
With a kiss
To break a heart
With a glance
To destroy a life
With a word
To ignite a fire
With a touch
To torture a love
With a passion
To hurt a friend
With a secret
To damage a future
With a lie
Is Truly Demonic
 


 
 
Apathetic Empathy
By Cory age 16 from Leeds, UK

When the nerves have died
What else is there to do
Except float on in the empty
Abyss?

Why does the skin not melt with the heat of the fire?
Why do the rivers on the face not dry up?
Never ending cycle of
Pain.

The darkness cloaks the dagger until it plunges deep,
Dragging across vital organs,
Tearing and ripping,
Flesh exposed.

Can the dead feel pain?
Do their hearts beat?
Do their brains function?
It seems so, yet not so


 

Space
By Cory age 16 from Leeds, UK

Like being lost without being found,
Like being locked in a dungeon,
Like falling from a great height,
Like a full stop.

You carry on regardless,
Through the never-ending,
Restless dreaming,
Turn and toss.

Following the gifted,
The special, the wonderful,
The ones who never know,
Why are they blind to sight?

Lead you into the night,
The moon shaded in,
The wind is screaming madness,
Please, God, let me in
 

 
poem by Sarah
 
We're born, we die
We laugh we cry,
We watch, we grow,
We stay, we go.
We are never perfect, no matter how much we want to be.
We can never always be happy, even if that's what we want
everyone else to see.
I can't change who I am, my stars just shines too bright,
I can t see the light, when I look in the sky at night.
I speak a million words, and hope my dreams come to.
But the only thing I need right now is something to hold on to.


 
also by Sarah

The rivers flow and the birds fly,
The sun shines high in the sky.

The animals play in the trees
and collecting honey are the bees

Caterpillars are crawling on a leaf,
Ants are hiding underneath.

Lady bugs in red and black,
in the cave there is a bat.

From Slithering snakes
to swans gliding on the lakes

Beautiful animals so big and small,
we thank you lord for giving us them all
 
 
 
Poem by Irene
 
Still dark.
Tranquil bliss ?
Darkest before dawn
rather
Calm before storm.
Blessed ignorance

Storm brew symphony of Silence
Dawn breathed Zephyr trotted
For whom ?

Redbreast Robin
Cocked his head
Took flight
And thus, tomorrow was ushered
To frisk, to frolic, to be free
Airy a trill carried upon wind.

Dark still.
Longs black arms,
Hooded by Hades
Ticked by
And thus, Tomorrow barged in
To go, yet never to return
Ponderous a cathedral bell tolled.

Waking Up
Facing Day?

3 Little Words
 
Mother dear, please hold me near,
And whisper three words I long to hear.
I hear them maybe once or twice a year,
Or maybe I'm just never near enough to hear.
As each day passes and turns to night,
I lie in my bed and wonder in fright;
'Does she still love me? I do not know.
Oh, how I wish she would tell me so!'
I love you, mother! I do! I do!
Oh, how I wish you'd say: 'I love you, too!'
Maybe you do, maybe you don't.
Whether you say it or write it in a note,
I'd just love to hear those three little words!
I love you, mum, and I do try and show it!
I try and show it in everything I do, every little bit!
Mother, oh, mother please tell me true,
And I'll say: 'I love you, too!'
So now as I finish up, I'd like to let you know; I care for you, I'll always be there for you,
And I love you, through and through!
Those 3 little words are: I LOVE YOU!

WHAT'S GOING ON?
WHAT'S going on with all this killing each other?
WHAT happened to treating one another as a brother?
EVERYWHERE I turn there's hatred in the air.
THERE'S so much pain i have to bear!
WHAT'S going on to the love and heart?
WHAT happened to everyone respecting each other's art?
WHAT'S going on, i can't really get the understanding of the sorrow and demanding?
WHAT's going on why isn't anyone standing?
CAN YOU tell me,what's going on?

I can hear my heart beat
Lying in my bed,
I can feel the blood rush
Pounding in my head,
Beating lie a bass drum
in an empty room,
I can hear my heart beat
Boom-de,boom-de,boom

IT WAS AWESOME
IT WAS GREAT
EVERYTHING WAS GOING FINE
SO I DIDN'T SEE IT COMING...
IT WAS MY FRIENDS
THEY WERE THERE FOR ME
THEY WERE ON MY SIDE
BUT THE NEXT THING I KNEW
IT WAS OVER
IT WAS DONE
I CRIED
I WAS SILENT
BUT THE NEXT THING I KNEW
IT WAS AWESOME
IT WAS GREAT
I HAD A NEW SET OF FRIENDS
THEY WERE GREAT TO ME TOO
BUT EVENTUALLY THEY LEFT ME
AND NOW I AM LOST
LONELY IN THE DARK
BUT I AM HAPPY
I KNOW THAT A NEW SET OF FRIENDS WILL COME A LONG I'LL WAIT FOR THEM THE NEXT TIME THIS HAPPENS TO YOU JUST KNOW THAT I AM HERE FOR YOU AND THAT NEW SET OF FRIENDS WILL EVENTUALLY COME ALONG IT IS AWESOME IT IS GREAT SO BE HAPPY LIKE ME

 


 
Why?
Why the hate?
why the squabbles between mates?
why the problem of race?
why does everyone have to have pretty faces?
why cant people make mistakes?
why the wars for no reason?
why do we worry about what we look like?
why the fights between black and white?
why do we live like this?
why do we pay to live?
why is there a word called "normal"?
WHY??? all these questions left unanswered?

I am a firefighter who hates his job
I wonder when I'm going to die
I hear the sounds of people screaming
I see the hot flames
I want to go home with no pain
I am a firefighter who hates his job
I pretend to play with my son
I feel hot flames against my face like the sun I touch the rims of a hose I worry when the building is gonna explode I cry when I see people crying I am a firefighter who hates his job
I understand why people pray
I say I can go on just one more day
I dream about not feeling pain
I Try to stay strong
I hope I don't get weaker by the day
I am a firefighter who hates his job
