Life Essay, Research Paper
Death hurts the soul
It comes at the end of the road
It starts on full
But soon turns to empty
It comes quicker then we would like
But our lives comes equipped with that hike.
Problems are miles long and rivers wide
But God only knows there is nowhere to hide
For problems are with you everyday
And from these there is no hideaway
Sick and heartbroken
There are problems growing around me like wildflowers
Ready to pull me into the cold dark earth with their roots
I don?t know where to turn
My problems are the wildflowers which surround me at all times
Where, where should I go
Somebody help me.
Sun and rain
Mixtures of happiness and sorrow
For the sun is bright and the rain is dark
But both are natures ways which,
could change peoples feelings from day to day.
Kids laughing and playing
Unaware of the sorrows in the world
Drugs, alcohol, death, and killings
The children are so innocent
As if they are closed in a clear bubble
Why do these precious children have to
grow up in a world of hate and anger?
If only this world could change,
before the children grow old.
Broken bottles and spilt beer
Scared to go home which use to be my safety
Being hit an abused
Leaves me to shake in the corner
Why did he have to turn out like this.
Yesterday he was here
Today he is gone
Why couldn?t I stop it
Now I don?t have a second chance
I saw what was happening,
but I didn?t want to admit it
I heard it over and over,
but I felt ashamed
I wish I could turn back the hands of time.
Crimes come a dime a dozen to the world,
but to me it?s like finding gold.
A life without materialism
A life without natural necessities
This is a life which I have grow to know
It?s a shame people don?t recognize others
All they care about and see is themselves.
Sometimes I feel lonely
Lonely because I want more
More love, more attention, more motivation
Motivation from parents, friends, and family
I want to know how it feels to be loved
Loved like people in movies
Looked out for like a new born baby,
and noticed like a shooting star.
But then i ask myself, Why?
Why would I want this?
The pain in which we suffer makes us
Makes us who we are and who we want to BE!
Why do I sometimes feel like not going on
is it because of love
is it because of fear
is it because of others
is it because of me
Sometimes life doesn?t seem to be that great
Sometimes I ask myself, why am I hear?
But then I realize this is my life.
This is something that I control
This is my chance to do whatever I want
This is my chance to live.
And that is when I realize nothing matters
Not what people think of me
Not what people have to say
Not anyone?s opinion but mine
I will be happy, sad, mean, or nice
I will be who I want to BE
I will be the one and only ME!
These poems are written from personal experiences. They don?t all have to do with me, some deal with people that are a close part of my life. I enjoy writing poetry. It is a way in which I am able to release tension, pain, anger , and feelings. I have kept a collection of poems for about a year now. When I sit down to write I feel eased and relaxed. This is something I do to find myself and express my feelings. Writing poetry is my own special retreat. It is a time to escape from everyone and everything. I wrote earlier this year in a paper that poetry is a hobby of mine. I feel that writing is a great escape from problems in your life. This is something I enjoy and will always enjoy.
these works were written by me. They are poems about the life in which I live.
