Rookie (3/10/93 / Round Rock Texas)


Broken promises, Shattered dreams,
Dead emotion, Heartless uncaring devotion,
All thrown in my face.

Salty tears drawn from useless fears.
Piercing screams an unfilled seems,
It’s destroying me.

Remember the game? No I swear it’s not that same..
The score, no that’s not right

Raging crimes in the night, monsters and
Demons run in fright. And yes,
I know I’m right.

Empty promises and empty hearts,
Broken bones and angry Tones…
we are all alone

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
