"I dont want to be a product of my enviorment, i want my enviorment to be a product of me" (jack nicolson


You don’t have to go.
You don’t have to try.
Just stand in line.
Wait for the supply.

Get fed.
Get fat.
Get old.
Die.


My poem is not the Catcher in the Rye.
I just don’t want to be the guy
Who had to show you our life.


Our biggest lie.
Yet some of us try.
We bleed and cry, some of us die.
Digging our path to our own demise.

Helen of Troy is the toy.
We are beings that destroy.
Building bridges and building bombs.
Welcome Home.

I want people to look at themselves, and every thing around them. Absorb what they can with their eyes, ears, taste and touch. You owe your self that much.

I liked it, especially the allusion to the Catcher of the Rye.  That was interesting.  But perhaps you could veer away from the rhyming scheme just a lil bit.  It drew attention away from the poem, and from you.  But I understand, I rhyme a lot, too.  :)  Keep up the good work, and please check out some of my poems.
