oh the things you can find...

Apparently this poem was written by an adult female after Sept. 11th and was "inspired a bit" by Sunday, Bloody Sunday by U2.

Have you heard the news today?
I want to close my eyes and make it go away.
I watched the news all morning long,
I can't tear my eyes away from the horror going on.

People crying in their seats
Lots of smoke and blood and more are dying in the streets
How long? How long will this keep going on?
How long? Will America keep singing on?

We always thought we were immune,
I wish we'd known the truth a lot more soon.
The world can just stand and stare,
No one believes it and a lot more don't care.

We'll hear the fighting, not so far anymore,
Do they know that we don't want to go to war?
But hundreds more are gonna die,
And all I can do is sit here and sigh...

And uh .. one more... typical teen angsty stuff but for some reason I have found this one *heeelarious*

Looking round at what I've got

Running from I don't know what

I turn and turn, but cannot find

I'm alone in the darkness of my mind

There is no one close to me

I love people I'll never see

I stand alone and watch the rain

I cry my tears and face the pain

I am strong and older now

I learned to block the pain somehow

Behind blue eyes I hide my fear

I have nothing that I hold dear

Never again will I be hurt

I'll plant my head into the dirt

Staying by myself you see

Is so much safer than being me

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
