Will it occur?

Is it more than a dream?

I wish it were

But nothing’s as it seems

I’m so sick of the good ones out there

They have it all so I will not fight fair

Finally make them listen to me

My heart screams

Is this a town?

Or just my terrarium for all to look down?

I’m a non sequitur

I do not compute

Wanna tell the world

But my soul is a mute

Maybe someday I’ll break out of this cage

Wander the earth and pretend I’m a sage

I feel I’m less than nothing

I can see it in their eyes.

But I’ll be something, more than nothing

Soar through the skies.

    This seems cool man! Underdogs gonna fight back!
    Well, but, I think you were trying to work out too much about the rhyming scheme ..
    The last four lines seemed somewhat off..

    Maybe someday I’ll break out of this cage

    Wander the earth and pretend I’m a sage

    Well, I felt that based on a poem on how he/she’s fighting back, the word ‘sage’ doesn’t suit it…

    That’s what I felt!
    Hope it helps!


  3. This poem is just…well, let me put it this way: I don’t believe anything can ever be perfect, and yet perfection was the word that came to mind when I finished reading this. The funny thing is that I notice it’s tagged “amateur poetry,” but it amateur is not an adjective that I would apply to this poem. 🙂


    • Wow! Thank you so much! I don’t care much for my poetry and this one least of all lol. I have some better ones on this blog. I’ve told like three people this today but I really am only confident about my novel and my stories, not so much about my poetry. But I appreciate you so much for enjoying this one!

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours
    nowadays, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours.

    It’s lovely price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made
    just right content as you did, the net might be much
    more useful than ever before.

        That’s okay! Ah, I pretty much hate everything I’ve ever written and I ignore all of that kind of thing anyway, so I can’t really say much to that… But I like your words, and that’s the important thing 🙂
