Give me life. Before its taken from Us.

Give me life. Before its taken from Us.

A Poem by JustALotusFlower

Little boy.

Do you know what life is?

Challenge after challenge.

Problem after problem.

Terrorism. Racism.

Do you know what life is?

We tell you its all good.

We say you'll be fine.

Nothing can stop you from your dreams.

But do you know what life is?

You wont learn about any of these tragedies.

Or any of these "Problems" until your older.

So why should we tell you?

Let you experience them yourself?

Of course.

But do you know what life is?

Mom and Dad.

I've grown up.

You lied to me.

Things only got worse, the more I learned.

I learned rumors go both ways.

I learned things and people CAN hurt you.

I learned we have no freedom.

Drugs and alchohal, are what I did.

Because you never stopped me.

Jail is where I ended.

Trying to steal from a convience store.

Then prison, for killing a man.

Soon enough.

I returned home.

And I am no longer living.

As you read this note.

Let me ask you this.

Did you ever regret not telling me the truth?

Darkness envolopes us all. Its the certain part of us that we cannot control. the poetic side of me is dark. you have yet to be consumed by the insanity of life, which consumed me once before. tak.. more..
