Here's to Self-Expression

Here's to Self-Expression

A Poem by Zackery Alan Daley
"

An ode of the awesome kind. A faculty of poetic nonsense.

"
"It isn't a REAL party, until somebody dies."
I'm not insane, in fact I'm quite rational.
Who asks who where the passion goes?
In self-defense, that doesn't make sense,
But I know you know I know you, through and through.
Quite a confusing ordeal, but there is my cue.
Please do not have any mercy on me.
Proclaimed genius, insane, and quirky,
I prey on thee.  A prayer of reciprocating feelings.
See?  It was irony that killed me.
In a puddle, in the gutter,
A woman screams as a man utters:
"Good riddance, this boy was a bother".
I had more soul than ANY soldier.
The last statement may not be politically correct.
Neither is my mind, nor yours in fact.
Morals are simply a matter of time,
Oh how they've evolved, the echoes chime.
We are all the same, play the same game.
Life is only a game of chess,
Seeing how long you can last.
Don't want to leave him?  Are you scared to die?
Found in my carpet are weed stems.  Fie, fie, fie...

A little on the crazy side but overall i really enjoyed reading this. My fav part is:
A woman screams as a man utters
Good riddance, this boy was a bother.
I had more soul than any soldier.
Magnificent piece! It has a nice flow and is very descriptive. Keep writing:)

'Life is only a game of chess,

Chess is a game of logic and mind control. Real life is more like checkers. One wrong move and the game is over. Chess is similar. I believe people take less chances at the game of chess. Complete poem was interesting. Made me think this early morning. A excellent poem.

strong - powerful write - the word plays are great - as are the rhymes - alternating - some internal - some end all twisting around the passion of the words - the sentiments ha indeed maybe not politically correct but pretty true observations unfortunately! nice!

This piece was very insightful and its just the way I like it. Its written with a bit of craziness and a lot of rawness. Just love it. Great work man.
