    I, being the peculiar guy I am, am wondering if any of you write poems and such. Post up anything you like, wrote, or heard. I'll post up some of mine later on.

    Oh, by the way, if there's a thread about this I am terribly sorry. My search yielded no results.

    There's a lack of poems in here. Lol. Here is one I wrote a few weeks ago.

    I'm lying here,
    Frozen with fear.
    Nothing left inside,
    Nowhere to hide.

    I cannot continue,
    No end is in view.
    Is this my fate?
    Is it too late?

    Some day, ill toss all your presents, and bury, the letters left unsent, cause its bad to do whats easy, just cause its easy and i, wanna do what pleases me but i cant and the rode she'd rode, around the side of the mountain, with nowhere to go but the heart we'd known, when its leaning and its creeping toward being alone. some day, ill find the mind to mend it, and make dry, these eyes have gotten wet, its bad to do whats easy just cause its and easy and I want to do what pleases me but I can't , the crow he'd know, in the grass and no, with nowhere to go but the heart we'd know, when its loving its leaving towards being alone and the oats we sow, they can seed on forever, with nowhere to grow but the heart we'd know, when its asking its exact way to go to not be alone.

    I'm dying inside,
    Trying to survive.
    You're killing me,
    How can this be?

    I have no reason to live,
    And no reason to forgive.
    My life is coming to an end,
    'Cause my heart is impossible to mend.

    This is one I wrote for language class because my teacher likes obama.

    I heard a knock as he busted through the door,
    I pulled my rifle and shot three shots through the floor.
    I crept downstairs to see a room covered in red.
    I found the man who was trying to catch me .
    I told him as he layed there he should have let me be.

    I crept out the door,
    and left him to die there on the bloody floor.
    I ran through the darkness.
    I could hear a dog.
    I ran across a creek covered in fog.

    I ran for several miles
    When I heard someone coming I hid in a wood pile.
    I ran till I found a hollow tree.
    I saw alot of wanted slave signs
    Most were nailed on thick pines.

    I heard someone coming
    They were humming
    It was another slave
    He swispered to me " I can hide you in my hut",
    But I'd have to do his work in the field.

    When his master came I had to slump down
    After he found who he wanted he would go to town.
    Thats when I decided to run
    I stole a horse and a gun
    It was alot more fun then having to run.

    I rode for a long while.
    Till I got within ten miles
    I was almost to tennesee
    When I heard a ghastly shout
    "thats the slave we saw a wanted sighn about".

    They shot 3 shots two whizzed by
    But the unlucky shot hit me in the thigh.
    I fell of my hore and rolled down a hill.
    There was alot of blue grass
    And streams filled with bass.

    I swam across a wide river
    When I got to the other side I ate some liver.
    Then I saw him
    It was obama
    He was slaughtering a lamma.

    I said to him what are you going to do next kill somebodys mamma?
    Your a realy bad president obama
    He came close to me
    He pulled a knife
    I begged him for my life

    I tried to run away
    But he caught up to me and stabbed me anyway
    His knife made a shout as he pulled it in and out of my arm.
    I ripped it out
    And put a piece of cloth on my arm so I wouldn't bleed out

    I took his horse
    But the bridle was course and it refused to go on the horse.
    As I rode away obama screamed " I'll find you you stupid slave".
    After i got five minutes away the horse slowed down.
    I looke at him his face was a frown.

    I passed out from loss of blood
    When I woke up i was strapped to the ground and was covered in mud.
    He spoke in a creepy voice " I told you I would find you".
    And now I'm going to kill you too.

    Then a slave ran out of the woods and tackled him.
    He muttered "I thought he was one of us and so did the rest".
    Then I walked 3 miles into ohio
    I was free at thast and I thought to myself maybe I should wright a bio.

    And for legal reasons everthing in this poem is pure fiction obama never did any of these things.

    Oh I got a 100% but my teacher was going to give me a F because she supports obama but I told her I would go to the principal so she just gave me a 100%.

    That is the way to handle it. It would be totally unfair of her to give you an F just for her beliefs. Although it was creepy and mildly racist.

    I like the Jabberwocky.

    `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.




    "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!"
    He took his vorpal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he sought --
    So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
    And stood awhile in thought.
    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!
    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.
    "And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
    He chortled in his joy.



    `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    No it was'nt supposed to be racist it was from the point of view of a slave on the under ground railroad with humor about obama.

    Also I like your poem its pretty good.

    Ok. I didn't really understand how Obama got in there, because you were talking about slavery, and that was before Obama, so I was a bit confused. But seriously, lets not go anywhere near politics.

    Is there more than one of you? There are many men on here without avatars.

    I know, but I wanted that to be my unique thing about me. I'll become a well-known member of the forum, but I'll never get an avatar. The other ones with no avatar are just lazy.

    Like, chronically depressed? Or, "I'm an emotional teenager" depressed?

    And don't worry, I'm not stereotyping you. I'm 16 also, as you well know.

    Lmao... CLINICALLY depressed due to some problems most people don't have to deal with. It's complete and utter BS how hard I have to try to keep myself from quitting... If you want to know more, PM me. You most likely won't get much out of me, though...

    By the way, your second stereotype doesn't match me with any of it's criteria.

    . I'm here for you if that's any condolence to you- I'm not saying you have to talk about it at all.
