"Nothing is impossible; the word itself says 'I'm possible'!" -Audrey Hepburn


You threw your wrathful
Boomerang at me
But dearest, blindest
Did you listen to me?

What goes around
Comes back around

Your boomerang hits you
Straight in the face
Inevitably
Blinding pace
You see it coming
But you don’t turn down
Your bloody words
Pin yourself into the ground
Dear, you’re meeting your fatality
Gravity pulls you down to reality
The words from the mouth
That taunted me all my life
Each pain is thrown back at you
Each a razor-sharp knife

What goes around
Comes back around

Someday I knew
The wrath you threw
Would come back around
Knocking you
I twiddle my thumbs
Waiting for that day
I survived your chain hold
But I’m amused when I say when I say
Your days are numbered
Ending at last
You wrathful boomerang
Comes back around at last

Ooh, wow, you gave me chills at the end. The whole concept of the boomerang was very intriguing, and I liked the flow and rhythm of this poem. One thing's for sure, you didn't lose my attention for an instant!

Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason for someone not to try.

I like how you repeated " what goes around comes around".   My favourite part is  " The words from the mouth That taunted me all my life Each Pain is thrown back at you Each a razor-sharp knife"   I like how it rhymes and it reminds me of how I feel sometimes.   5 stars... love this poem :0)

Love the repetition of "what goes around comes around" and the imagery that was used. Fantastic!

You should write poems more often! This was great, I think the best part is how its so simply written yet the meaning is strong and it makes the poem so sophisticated.

I love the hidden meaning in this peom. And I agree with CarrieAnn13 that the imagery is very good. And I adored the part where you said, "I twiddle my thumbs, waiting for that day" It made me laugh.  :)

"The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane." --Marcus Aurelius

I absolutely love the vivid imagery you used: "Each pain is thrown back at you/Each a razor-sharp knife."  The boomerang as a metaphor for what goes around comes around works really well, in my opinion, as well as the repetition of "What goes around/Comes around."  It feels almost like a song. What I like the most, however, is the raw emotion I can feel in your poetry.  Some poetry just falls flat, yet I can feel the anguish and the satisfaction of seeing someone who hurt you being hurt in return.  I love it!
