The only easy day; was yesterday.


Oh joyous friend!
Lets play pretend.
Live in a world full of joy.
A world for every girl & boy.
Beyond our past we look.
Beyond the crookedest crook.
Into the darkest shadows.
That haunt our memories gallows.
Long live life's tragedies.
Long live life's rhapsodies.
But hey, take my hand.
Lets take a walk to our promised land.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem because every teenager has a place they go when the world gets tough. I wrote this to show others that some of us go there to escape reality and live in a world which some use to asses the tragedies of life.
