The Words of a Minor


What is new in this life
A daily routine
What is left to figure out
if everyday all you see is the same
One more person says God is real
one more person asks what do you believe
one more person says you have no control over your life
only good and evil exist
And one more time you wonder
Will anybody listen to the words of a minor
instead of saying in the end
our words will never matter
We all know God is a stranger to some
and a hero to others
but it doesn't suggest that we shove our beliefs down their throats
What we believe should only be known
by the people who believe in the same thing
Almost everybody can agree on one thing:
There's more to life than being good and evil
There's a world beyond the worry we put before us
Even a minor could tell you that
A world would be a better place
If just someone who's born to preach
born to lead would listen and pay attention
to someone under 15

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
