    A poem is a yell in the night a silent scream for help when no one seems to be paying much attention, a poem is the siren that rushes to your house, my house there house for the sick for the helpless for the injured that cry.
    A poem is a domestic dispute, a
    drunken rage a fistful of pity and bucket of tears saved. A poem is a child raped, molested for her innocence for her pretty pink dress and ruffles that has been torn and smeared on the mirror of shame. A poem is a love lost dreams rejected and a heart that still needs to mend. A poem is a homeless man or woman that can not speak can no longer fight the good fight or walk upright because their pride has been stolen and pushed away in the shopping cart they carry their only possessions. A poem is a house with no father a home where no mother has rested. A poem is a sleepless night a thoughtless fight, money contradictions as they argue on who is right. A poem is about love, an old relationship that ends while a new one just begins. A poem is all you feel and all you won’t, those who care and those who don’t, a poem is simply life in flight and one with a pen that has captured it within.
