"There’s no such thing as true love, just spurts of insanity—falling over and over again, thinking that won’t happen to me"


Your phone is dead?
Poor you.
There's people who can't be fed.
To them, that's nothing new.

You missed your favorite show last night?
Doesn't that suck.
There kids living on streets with no home in sight.
Where's their luck?

Your friend can't make it to the mall.
That's so unfair.
Who's going to be there for the people who fall?
Which isn't very rare.

When will people realize?
That there's something so great.
Something enormous in size.
It can determine their fate.

Learn to care for one another.
Something that gets so burrowed.
Look out for your fellow brother.
And you can change the world.

I wrote it for a poetry slam, it's basically my opinion on life. Hope you enjoy!

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

I love the theme..the rhyme is a bit irregular but I do like your word choice! I wrote a poem with a similar theme, like being unselfish...it's titled "This 'I' "....maybe you could see it....
