I wrote this a while back...Kata's a ravenous beast.


Verse of Life

What once was,
Now is past,
What was the start,
Now is last.

Merciful, Merciful Mother,
Sunday, next Monday,
Massacre on Tuesday,
Party on Wednesday.

Prophecies of destruction,
From Mother, Merciful Mother,
Called up for the war,
Forced to kill your own brother.

Lights out,
Muzzle flash,
You've got
All the light you need
When you're dead.

Guns and drugs in school,
We hide behind our friends,
Blame them for your wrongs,
Then kill their spirits when they're weak.

Destroy your life,
Mindless carnage over the sea,
Nuclear threats,
Everyone seems to love us.

None of it matters,
To a depressed teen,
Alone in his room,
Cutting a slice of life.

From his arm,
Rend the veins,
Permanent brain drain,
Suicide is painless,
Painless, but POINTLESS.

Labeled in life,
Labeled in death,
A nerd, a dork,
He doesn't matter to anyone.

He looks ahead,
Eyes of stone,
In a concrete jungle,
Or a prison of bricks.


His name,
It kills,
It maims,
All who merely speak of him,
Nothing is right anymore.

My verse, my verse,
My writing goes beyond the words,
And explores instead occurrences,
Of everyday life.

It ignites a fire inside,
To stand up and do something,
Forget government,
Fuck society,
FORGET Reality
Or
IGNORE
Or
DESTROY
Or
DISREGARD
Or
DEFABRICATE
Or
CREATE

Instead,
Do something creative,
No one expects it,
No one forgets it.

Mayhem isn't the answer.

Write,
Writ a story, write a book,
Write your life.

And by the time all is done,
You will be spared,
From an eternity,
Of being part of the mindless droves,
That respect corruption,
Scandal, compromise, corporate greed,
Racial ignorance,
Hypocrisy,
Destruction,
And most of all,
American Government.

Hide behind the first like cowards,
The Klan, the Swastika,
But they'll be destroyed in the end.

Don't plead the Fifth,
You did it, you spoke for yourself,
Keep your head high,
Don't be ashamed.

Because you went out,
And you did it,
And when you do it,
Rest assured,
No one forgets it.

Wow. That was really powerful. I think it touched on a lot of different points in the world today. It's really good. Wow. I was going to copy and paste the part I liked the most but when I read it through again, I couldn't decide! The entire poem is sooo good, and I think there's a character limit in the comment box...
Wow. That's bookmark worthy.

This is probably one of the only long poems that I've read on this site, because it held my interest throughout. It's nice to see a fellow teenager write so passionately for change in society, even if we are mocked for it. It sucks that the world is so screwed up but we can change if we unlearn all of our messed up ways. Bravo!
