David Sabo

(December 2nd,1990 / Oklahoma City)

I am not a poet


Im not a poet
thats my life so i wrote it
so everyone will know it
when i die they can show it

I never was a poet
just a kid with a pen
trying to relate
tryna find a friend
from within

never loved my self
always thought i needed wealth
always shy before the eyes
of one those who judge everyone else.

Now i write for the bite
hopefully it hurts your ears
maybe you will realize
just what you did through all the years

the suppression
taught me volume
and the violence
taught me the aggression
you have created a monster
now it time YOU learned a lesson

NoW i could care less
what you think
i burned the test

sitting at my desk

like
what?
wheres the rest?

    What you write is exactly how I feel. I write my life so when I'm gone at least a few people will know what I felt and what I've been through. You are a wonderful writer and person! (Report) Reply

    The truth is in your words. You are not a poet, yet; but you have the potential to be a very good one. Keep up the good work.

    it has real meaning behind it, its serious and thoughtful in a tone.. you used some masculine rhyme cool. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
