i dont understand


I dont understand
why people try to be me
why people cant trust me
why people argue over nothing
why young people are quick to grab a gun

But most of all
why people cant get along
why people dislike me
why there are wars
why are people prejudiced

What i dont understand the most is
my life
the world
why i am i so thankful
why are there deaths
why are majority of the jail filled with young black males

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,
