Treasure Island

Kaila Webb

No Cares

Round and round
Up and down
Yet nothing here again will sound.
How can you not look at me
And wonder what it is I see?

I see a lamb.
A little lamb.
A lioness prowls cross the land.
And yet the lamb just walks on still,
A chunk of juicy meat to kill.

I scream and shout for it to run,
Yet nothing more.
Nothing is done.

The lamb is gone
Just red stains left
I think now I shall go off to bed.
What point is there for me to sleep,
Just going round
and up and down.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I'm just tired. Tired of being yelled at. Tired of being told how disappointing I am. How worthless I am. How there's no excuse in me being here, because they don't need me. I'm done.

But I'll keep going. Not because I want to- no because of spite. It's pretty much the only thing keeping me going nowadays. I don't have hope of the future; I hold hope that what I do with my life will be enough to make them regret what they've told me. What they're telling me.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
