The Words.


I want to write something

to change the world.

To cause people to stop

and think.

About all they're doing or NOT doing

with their lives.

to make them see that they aren't

living up to expectations

they should have for themselves.

To show them that

just because their world is a bunch of


Doesn't mean that everyone else can muster one.

To teach them to change where we are

where we all are.

To make them understand

that rich or poor

we're all people

we all have problems

I'm trying to write something


to change the world....

or just one person.

But the words won't come...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Something close to home in a way. Not saying I'd ever do this but still its about being unable to cope with the things around you. Its a more serious poem.
