Doe Ray Me


Doe-ray-me
Understand …
This is how I have to be
I’m full of hatred
With every drop that I bleed
And jus think
A nice guy is who I use to be
But now I’m angry
Like Hell’s fire is trapped inside of me
So please, don’t calm me down
I like where I’m at
Say what you want
Like Sosa, homerun when I hit it with a bat
And I laugh no surrender
Cause I’m on a full attack
The Grumps gives me high fives
Like I jus recorded a sack
Bread call the team
It’s time to get off the leash
The world don’t even know
How unstable I can be
Atomic bomb is what I am
But you can call me a beast
I will never give up
Cause defeat is not in my genes
Don’t clap your hands
No reason for applause
This is my moment
My time to go off
And I am uncooked
I guess you can say I’m raw
Tell who you know
I’m the worst thing you ever saw
People say I write mean
Because anger is who I keep around
Maybe cause I’m lost
Searching for home like Homeward Bound
And I love being angry
It feels better than a frown
Christians say I’m going down
I guess I’m Hell bound

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
