I Wonder

A Poem by SwagMaster
"

Made it for a shape poetry contest.

"
          Just                                                   So many     problems with this crazy
      one person     world of      ours.  Pollution, disease,
     in a world of                                            wars, fighting, abuse, drugs, smoking,
        people.                                                terrorists, homeless, abandoned kids,
            I                                                     and other frightful terrors.  Why can't
 wonder if I will even                                     we just       come together and fix it? 
           m                                                     Swallow       our pride and unite for a
           a                                                                               common
           k                                                                               good? I
           e          wonder
         f   r    if we can
       f       e                                                                           still fix  
     i           n                                                                         the wo-
   d              c                                                                       rld, or if
a                   e            it's too
            late?


                               Why can't                             we just
                       learn to love, learn                 to laugh, or to cry
                  without shame? Why must         we wear masks; why play
               this game? Nobody's perfect,     and as soon as we accept it, we
              just might achieve what we want but won't admit. Where we can
               simply be ourselves, be true to the soul, and not have to worry 
               about everyone else's goal. If we just learn to show compassion
                 to others, and learn to sympathize, instead of judging your
                     brothers. Pity the deprived, and help the poor, find
                          the lost, and listen to the ignored. Take the
                                  load of the burdened, help the 
                                       unfortunate and broken,
          stand up for what's
                                           right; speak what
                                              needs to be
                                                 spoken.
                                                    BC

Wow. This is AWESOME. I love the presentation. It's so beautiful, and - well, WOW! I love that you took so much time to make it like this. Just one look and I was blown away.

Okay, the ideas - great. I especially like the first one (since I think it's something that everyone thinks about sometimes). It flows great and I have to say, I feel like charging out and doing something good.

Definitely love the shapes! It was a nice, creative touch that made your piece stand out:] you most certainly have a nice, poetic flow to your writing. and you do prove a point, and the honest truth is people are scared of really saying what needs to be said. we tend to be cowards:/
anyway, loved the piece! keep up the good work:]

IW shows the never ending search for Utopia that I'd like to exist but
but "wonder" if ever it will, just like your poem. Your poetry questions
everything and it should ... Loved the images ... Good job, BC
