"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind," -Gandhi


Listening to sad songs
On a cold, rainy day
Trying to make
The pain go away

The magazines
Have all been read
And my knitting things
Down to the last thread

I don't know
What else to do
I need distractions
To forget about you

Because when I remember
Your face when it ended
It makes me want to cry
Mistakes are never mended

Find the path
You want to take
And follow it
No matter what's at stake

My mama told me
To never give up
And live like the world
Is filled with love

But sometimes I feel
That maybe it's not
And maybe you're not always right,
Mom

And maybe
Just maybe
What happened that day

Well maybe
Just maybe
It'll all be okay

And maybe
Just maybe
When the clock finally stops

I won't die with you
In all of my thoughts

But for now I just sit here
On this sad rainy day
With old magazines
Crying "Baby, please stay."

I liked how you deviated from the rhyme scheme to change the tone of the poem. Your prose has a strong voice and good emotion. Keep up the good work.

Never Question Yourself. If someone tells you to change, stay exactly who you are. No one should ever try to change you.
