Letter To Unknown


My life is a story that people call a cliff hanger
Never knowing what will happen next, I'm standing on the cliff
Im getting pushed by the voices in my head
And getting closer to the edge to becoming dead
I don't deserve this pain, I've been through enough
I got the best family who helps me when things get rough
I do everything for me, and this writing lets the pain go away
So I leave it all on this paper and listen closely to things that I say

Im only 17 and I am what I am
I may be a little different, but thats who I am
I was raised by only one parent, the jerk just spilt
I wanna shout out to him for making this a hit
You missed out on my life, you missed my first words
You missed my first steps, and you get the last word
That you just listen to me as I tell
I hope you have a good life and burn in hell.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
