‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé


Is it black? Is it white?
In the night, is it bright?
In the day, is it dark?
And the cats, do they bark?

Is it hot? Is it cold?
In her tale, what was told?
Did she say she can fly?
When she waves, is it bye?

Is it right? Is it wrong?
Do I read with a song?
Do I dance with a book?
Do I know where I look?

Is it good? Is it bad?
Does your mom love your dad?
When they walk, does she run?
Does she cure with a gun?

Now I feel so confused
And my mind felt abused
It is burning in he**
I cannot think so well!

It goes bad, it goes worse
Am I running like horse?
When will I figure out
What these things are about?

Sitting in class while my teacher was babbling about things I have no intention of listening to, I wrote this poem. And as a product of boredom, this is what happened.

I like this poem alot. Itt's catchy and I could feel a rhythm come out of it as I read it. Your rhyming was great except for the second to last line or so. I enjoyed it very much and found it cute and quirky.

Usually I would find an overdose of questions annoying, but the use in this poem just added to the overall greatness of it :) Nice job!
