Wrong


I guess I was wrong...
Dead by April
I guess I was wrong because it's June now and I'm alive and kicking
This will be my year, wasn't a mistake on my part
just an outdated lie since this summer lies in ruins
well what can be done
I can't control the things around me
my words mean nothing at all
my actions are my plans always being bombarded so why try
How much room do I need to breathe, room enough to scream
I found my place in the world
I guess I was wrong since the world is a messed up place
and I'm just its mess, walking around in it
Am I the bad seed grown in the garden
am I the silent star crashing landing
for being kicked out of the cluster
am I the leftover flames from the fire, already put out
am I the one to change the world, destined for greatness
How will I know if I'm just a small town boy
just moping about my false hopes
When is it my time to evaporate
I've asked so many times
but I'd rather it be when I'm 83
since I want to see my children grow
a big dreamer who is only 16
I know my future
I guess I was wrong...
I guess I was wrong...
I guess I was wrong...
I guess I was wrong...

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
