William Montgomery


Everlasting emotions


I put on a mask to try and forget my past

But i am taking it of at last Every day i wish this feeling would go away



Emotions anger and sadness they both lead to madness



bottling things up inside trying to keep your dignity your pride



then one day you turn on the tv and see the corpse of your bride



suddenly your feelings you can no longer hide



you, ll never admit to any one that you cried



but you see this pain just isint going away



so i decide to leave earth this day



the knife cuts deep but i don't weep scream or say a peep



i just enter an everlasting sleep....



But then iam awakened confused and shaken



I see people in white the lights so bright



I have failed if only i had prevailed



Years pass and the emotions remain



The cuts have turned to scars



And yet here i sit looking to the stars



No kid no wife



just alone under the night sky with a knife



This time there will be no mistake



After all what am i leaving behind



A fractured mind leaving a world that's blind



To the hate within the young to the bullets in their gun



We could change the world right now to a better place



Stop funding the nuclear arms race instead give money to the poor



Give every one a roof and a floor and a front door



A home to call their own instead of letting politicians sit on their throne



All they ever do is bitch and moan then take yet another loan



To bail out the banks and buy weapons and tanks



Why put this money to waste we should be spending it feeding the world with haste



ive been in counseling for years gave up taking drugs and drinking beers



but iam still battling with my fears and still shed tears but i think i can finally be my self and put my mask back on its shelf.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
