Treasure Island

Double A P SS

(Los Angeles, California)

Born in Hostility

I am trying to be myself
But I am becoming someone else
Thinking irrational, saying illogical
I am trying to be
But I am becoming
Someone else
Filled with knowledge
I am trying to stay in line
But the lies are becoming re-visible
Everything is turning and twisting
The interior decorations of my home
Filled with support for genocide
I am losing my mind
Meanwhile Mom is telling me everything is alright
I am just a boy living…
I am not grasping the ideals of my leaders
I am trying to be my old self in front of you all
But it is becoming harder when there is a war
That is murder going outside my home
I am trying to stay in line
Show some respect
I am just a boy confused by the old
I am losing moral
I am trying to be
But becoming someone else
Lost in between swords
I am just a boy living a home
Bursting with support for genocide

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
