These are the days that make me wanna scream,
I want the mighty to fall and the poor to reign.
I want hail to fall and pelt those below, and the wind to destroy the houses high and low.
The powerful will fall while the weak will rise, crushing what stands in their way.
For today is the day
Today the king is the peasant, on his knees begging to others around.
Today the student is the principal, not listening to anyone but his own sound.
Today is the day that the ugly and weak stand on higher ground.
Today is the day that you control me no longer.
I’m not weak and feeble as you remember, for I have fought many wars and now I am stronger.

This was written right after i was suspended. I was really mad, because i hadn't done anything to get such a drastic punishment.

Thank you so much! I will check out our work. And I was suspended for getting beat up. I admit I was taunting her to punch me but she took it so far. And she didn't even get suspended.

Incredible! This is so empowering, I think it really speaks for the world today, or rather, what we need the world to be like.

Nice job! Unfortunately, the website messed up some of the formatting, like it did on my poem. My 10X10 was majorly screwed up. I wish the website would fix that issue. Sorry, I got off topic. Great poem! Keep it up!
