A Poem by SW..if..TY

They spew poison and disguise them as gentle words

They wave to you, but they're really flipping you the bird

These gestures are so subtle,

But hurt like being punched with every knuckle

They kick you in the knees and make you buckle

The days we live in are blinding

Like a desolate road that's dark and winding

Danger lurks around every turn

This is a road that we'll never learn


As time shifts, and and the space around us collapses

They'll lay us down with open fists,

Until we all suffer and have unrecoverable relapses


We can all see you on that pedestal you sit on

We the people will bring upon a wrath at the break of dawn

We're strong and we all know that you're wrong

So we're removing the cancer that doesn't belong

Enjoyed this! This will be good as either poem or song. Always a pleasure, Swift :)

Such wide vocabulary in one poem, which makes it absolutely enjoyable. Your powerful messages in the pieces you write are always quite a pleasure to read.

Powerful piece you have here. I enjoyed reading it. Although, you have two 'and's right next to each other. I'm not sure you're supposed to?

Powerful and unique as always :) and as always I like it.

I am brutally honest thinker, If something crosses my mind, chances are im going to say it, or write it down, whether its a rhyme, or a random thought on a random topic. I love poetry and song writing.. more..
