Change


I have done all wrong things I could think of
Broke someone's heart
Disrespected my mother
Said things I wasn't supposed to say
I have lied a zillion times
Cheated my friends
Made my mother, my friends and my relatives cry
Cause of my wrongdoings
Hated people
Judged people
Made them feel useless
As if they were not human
Got jealous of my friends, my relatives
Mostly my sister
Lost my lipginity
Lost my virginity
Got drunk
Got beaten up
Not slept at home
Got involved in bad company
Got involved in fights
In drugs
Done all that!
Change!
Looking back I hate myself
I hate the person I was
And still am
Change!
This word has six letters
But it's so hard to do
Change!
I want to change
But don't know how
God help me
Cause I cannot do it on my own
And I will
Change!

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
