Favorite Quote:
Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once. (By Lillian Dickinson)

At this point, her internal wealth is bleeding
leaving of course injured beauty
2012 making its way as we are carelessly proceeding
water and trees resigning from their duty

I intend to age to death, not warm to death
The sun is now a relief, grinning, but soon to be killer
cheeseburgers already stealing endured breath
2012, nature rebel phase, anticipated thriller

Her internal wealth must remain
kneel for a wrapper, soda cans, anything!
The skies are overdosing, bipolar, just insane

Her internal wealth, color and clearness is one to save
For 2012, I pray, We have a future to pave!

The author's comments:
The whole myth about the world ending next year in December really got me drafting this poem. I live in the South so I had to mention the pollution.
