Best Poem of Mike Farris Jr.

Passing The Time

PASSING THE TIME


I toss and turn
Try not to sleep
Woke up to piss
Cuz my bladder is weak
My mind is tired
But I can’t shut it down
I’m getting fat
Cuz I just lay around
Jail is a boring place to be
Unless there’s a fight between inmates
Or something good on the T.V.
Thinking of ways to abide my time
When I can’t sleep
I write on these lines
Sometimes good
Sometimes not
But paper and pencil
Are the tools I’ve got
After this I’ll lie back down
To rest my mind
And try to shut it down

...

Just Make It Through

JUST MAKE IT THROUGH


Don’t go through that forest
There are things that will trip you
You might fall down then
Getting back up
It could be tough
The animals are hungry there

[Hata Bildir]
