A Piece of Page!


I took a pen and a piece of a page,
Trying to describe and write down
my pain,
But this pen wasn't fast enough,
It kept getting stuck,
Oh God this Pain sucks,
Every lil'piece of blood inside my
heart.

I took a piece of a page,
Trying to express my pain,
But what i felt needed more than
just a page it needed something
greater,
It needed the ear of my creater,
So i told my pain to God through a
prayer.

I took a piece of page,
Now its just here staring in my
face,
Its a small piece,
What difference would it make,
It wont help me heal or take away
this pain,
I dnt even think it can accomodate
all my grieviences.

This piece of page,
So white and drawn blue lines,
Is it okay to take a red pen and
write?
Well red as a symbol of blood
dripping from heart,
Red as a symbol of pain,
The experience of danger i came
across in my life.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
