Rookie (8/24/97 / california)


I care about you. I care for you.
I look at this world with clear vision.
I am clearly speaking my mind but you still don't listen.
The words I try to speak and what I feel.
Humanity. It's my main priority. It's what livens me.
So you see, these words I'm speaking aren't for me.
They're for everyone out there struggling and in all the pain,
All the things that make your mind go insane. Humanity.
It's my main priority. It comforts me. Why?
‘Cause I'm not shy and don't have to lie,
When it comes to caring, sharing these feelings that I feel
And writing stuff that's real, stuff that'll hopefully heal, humanity.
Yeah it's my main priority.
Everyday I don't wake up and wonder what's in store for me
But what's in store for the world and if it's going to spin and whirl
Orbit in pain, orbit in shame. For some people ever days the same
This life is not a game and I don't care who has fame but who's the blame
For the cruelty or you and me being treated like trash
You see, this is not about me but humanity.

    I like this...You expreess with no-hold-barred verve, yet also with poetic eloquence...I detect a confluence of both free & prosaic verse here...and the mix is well balanced...You must have studied Yin & Yang mantra! lol! Werll Done, young lady, indeed! ~FjR~ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
