A Poem by Jeanette

In 30 years

I've been born

And raised alone

In an emotional storm

 

In 30 years

I've lost a parent

Became shy

And very observant

 

In 30 years

I've gotten good grades

Attended school

In curls and braids

 

In 30 years

I met a boy

Such a mistake

I was just his toy

 

In 30 years

I've had to work

Breaking my back

For another jerk

 

In 30 years

I've been married twice

The cost of a companion

Such a high price

 

In 30 years

I've loved and lost

Life's been hard

NEVER soft

 

In 30 years

I've cried a million tears

Swallowed my pride

And faced a few fears

 

In 30 years

I've never flown

Except in my dreams

When I'm all alone

 

In 30 years

I've done little right

Try to learn as I go

Steer my path toward the light

I find this poem has a nostalgic feel.
It also has a melancholic feel.

It has a beginning ( Like ourselves ) development and good ending.
It's progessive.

It shows the various stages and choices of one's life.

GOOD POEM

Rock and roll manipulates it. It makes one from the bird it just burned and Yes. Yes it did
Awesome. Just Awesome. Like how you put in life challenges and such. Great work.

I think your brain can only implode so many times before it needs a break.
