I Believe

I believe that if the world wasn't round,
there would be people that try and jump off,
either for the thrill or to rid themselves of the pressure of humanity,
of the pain that we are filled with and covered in,
unable to find hope in the place we call home,
but it's all we know and all that we want,
yet we despise it with a passion,
and strive to find happiness in a place of insanity,
humanity has gone too far,
they have already fallen off this flat world,
yet they are still on it,
somehow they are still alive,
they may not be living, but they are alive,
there is no reason to be alive without living,
if you truly want to live then you prove it,
unless you are of the ones who find it better to jump,
to rid yourself of the pressure of humanity,
and jump off of the world while it is still flat,
or you can choose to live while you can,
while the world still exists,
along with those on it,
and those who believe that all of this is just a figment of your imagination,
an excuse that, you, too can overpower,
rather then believe so strongly that you jump,
you can live.


The author's comments:

I wrote a peom last year, in English class that started with the same first two lines as this one and I decided to change it entirely (except for the first two lines of course). I think it turned out really good and I hope you do too. <3

"You know what "Normal" is? A setting on a washing machine. No one wants to be that." - Ashley Purdy from the band Black Veil Brides said that and I am going to keep using this quote.

This is really good... It kinda reminds me of some of my work that I did. I like this one even though it's a depressing one. Keep up the good work >^_^
