I love poetry
It allows me to write my emotions instead of using violence as the answer
The silence I used to hold in,I get to write it without no one getting what i'm talking...
5yrs ago I wrote a poem for the principal of my high school as a gift since he was retiring. I wrote this in his perspective.
I Close My Eyes
Beauty is timeless and so is love...
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
Civil war poem
The nation was teared into two
all due to sectionalism, slavery and states rights too
Many lost their lives to get the country back together
The trail of blood has...
Darkness in my eyes pain in my heart
Blood dripping out my arms, falling apart
Screaming within, love, hate and fire
Come wash away my sins, show me desire
Take my hand , lead me...
He says it’s easy to fall in love with me
But hard to love me…
He says I am too honest about who I am…
& I’m just trying to find the place between
Hell & heaven…
AFTER A WHILE (Veronica Shoftshall, 1971)
After a while you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul
and you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.
Aye, you shall be together even in the silent...
The truth in your eyes is
While you sit there and wait for your fate to be debated by
Juries and judges
With over 450 years worth of grudges
