What is to say?

What is to say?

A Poem by Skelasoldier

I really don't know where this came from Please be aware that this was not direct at anything or any group of people


What is to say that in this life

You will become rich and have no strife


What is to say that in your death

People will follow in your steps


What is to say that in your after-life

You were wrong and I was right


What is to say that whilst you burn

You will cry for what you yearned


What is to say

What is to say

What is to say


How many more must be killed

To make your point around the world


Innocent blood has been spilled

For nothing but religious war


Spread it down into the ground

Whisper not but a sound


Of the torment you can inflict

With just a snap of your wrist


What is to say that I will break

Under the strain of lonlieness


What is to say you will smile

Under the mask of guile


What is to say

What is to say

What is to say

I love this! It;s a wonderful point. More people have been killed in the name of religion that any other reason in the history of the world. Religious war doesn't determine who is right, only who is left, and what is to say that either side right? I do not like how you repeat "What is to say" so many times in a row like that, but otherwise I loved the poem. I would suggest only repeated it twice in a row.

I love this poem! Sorry, I'm about to sound really sappy, but this poem is super touching. And, unlike some people, you love to write, and actually practice it. People can tell that stuff, like whether or not you actually put capitals, paragraphs, and correct punctuation. Lots of people, though, do not. I'll strike up a conversation on writing, and they'll say,
"Yeah, I love it, and I'm a pro writer!"
If we're at school and in the middle of writing something, however, they'll make that statement, turn to me, and ask,
"How do you spell ______?"
Here are some of the words I've gotten asked on:
Needless to say, it's insanely annoying. :]

The road to progress is paved in the failures of the present, I'm a living example of this. I've progressed as a writer, creating stories that I have since put into comic (Manga) form. I'm not very g.. more..
