poem 2 comments challenge: Last

Flying Free With the Wind


This is your last chance
I have given you millions
All to be wasted

The chances all gone wild
Flying free with the wind

I tried not to give up
I am trying not to let you go
But boy, is it hard

It's like you're wild
And flying free with the wind

I tried to tell you
But did you listen?
Instead you crush my feelings

It's like my happiness is gone wild
And flying free with the wind

You know what?
No more chances. 
I'm done

You're gone and flying free with the wind
Going going 
Gone.

Disease

Disease
Takes the humans
Takes the plants and trees
Takes the things we love
Makes us sick inside and out
Takes the things we hold all above

I hide inside you
Creep around
Something you never you knew
I kill everything and more
I make you cry
I make you tired and sore

Disease
Helps no one

Disease 
I help you

Disease 
Is nobody's friend

I'm every one's friend

poem 4 comments challenge: Static

Static

The static screams from the radio
scratching to get out

The words try to get through
but just get lost in the storm

You turn the radio
less static
but you still can't hear

You pull the antenna 
out farther
but it doesn't help

The words you're trying to hear 
are still lost

The person saying them
thinks you can hear
thinks they are helping you
but they aren't

You finally change the channel
and watch the game on T.V.

Sit and Talk It Out

There is less food
the men went off to fight
the ones to old 
like father
go out during the bombings 
risk their life 
for other people
hundreds die each day
thousands hurt
innocent people
innocent children
Both sides are wrong
war is never the answer
talk it out
don't kill people to settle one argument
At least let the women fight 
Don't just make them sit at home and worry
let them fight too
life is hard
people hurt
but when you fight for your country
you are not fighting for your country
you are fighting for the things in it
but war is never the answer
it makes people hurt
physically and mentally
Makes people starve
And worry 
And so much else
Just stop the war for a moment
and sit down with the other side
and have tea
Don't try to kill each other for a moment
just sit and talk it out

Perfect Bestie

A dash of happiness
A cup of sense
A  tablespoon of silly
Subtract the meanness
Minus the bully
A whole lot understanding 
And a whole lot of caring
Mix it together and add the
Two Housemade humor bits and 
10 chopped up cloves of athletic and
Four sprigs of caring
Mix it up again
Bake it for 42 minutes in a body size cake pan
And out pops an...
Artificial
No-good
Cheap
Trivial
Unessential
Unimportant
Unproductive
Robot
You can't make people the way you want them to be
You've got to find real-life people that you can love, live for and die for.
Someone who has flaws just like you.

A Tiny Bit Perfect

"Now, kids. Do you want to hear a story?" My grandpa asked with his signature gravelly voice in his old rocking chair to all my cousins.
"YESSSS" We all screamed.
"Alrighty then.
"One day, I was driving my Coca Cola truck to Tennessee, when I realized I had no idea where I was. We didn't have Cary-"
"Siri!" We all exclaimed. He was forever bringing Siri into things and forever mixing up her name. 
"Well, anyhoo. I didn't have a GPS system, and I didn't have a phone, so I decide to drive around 'til I found a truck stop.

I Am

I am the one who laughs too loud
Who dances when no one else is dancing
I am the one who sings monstrously
Who takes notes always during class
I am the one who eats lunch alone
Who gets called a nerd
But I am also the one who gets good grades
Who will get a good job
I am the one who feels bad for my bullies
for their jobs won't pay well
I am the one who will go to college
And my bullies might not
I am the one who gets called a nerd
Who is proud of that
And takes it a s a compliment
