Violent Volition - Poem by Sean FitzPatrick

The new day arrives with the shrill sound
fumbling i hit the clock to turn it down
another day comes and yet i dread it
another days dissapointment impossible to forget it
Waiting for something to make me feel alive
like a zombie i go through the motions dead inside
but lets not be so morbid part of me thinks
its friday lets go get some drinks!
Yes thats all well and fun perhaps
but then again, its one of society's traps
i dont and i didnt need it to make myself happy
i had my happiness, although that sounds sappy
yes it was a girl i that i used o date
but now, my heart is filled with vengefull hate
not towards her mind you, it wasnt her fault
she lives in a world that never comes to a halt
but when youve seen what ive seen
then youl know the places ive been
ive been through hell and heaven alike
all before the time i could ride a bike
emotional hell, one of the worst kinds
because the pain there doesnt heal with time
weve all had it and to each of us it seems too real
but we forget it and bury it with a seal
but in a way im thankfull for it, it makes me better
so i can laugh when people complain they have a hole in their sweater
what a world is this in which we live
people fall through cracks like water in a sieve
but really their fall is of their own volition
they bring themselves down like a personal mission
step back with me and think for a moment or two
what im saying applies to me and you
imagine in the future when they read about our time
what will we be know for? I think it will be for our crime
not one of rape or murder of violence
a crime we commit when we sit in silence
apathy is the name of this insideous act
most people have it and thats a fact
but not me not i, i say today
i will be one of those who mkaes his own way
i frimly reslove to make my chnage now
i will quetions who and why and how.
