Best Eddie Merritt Poems

+ Fav Poet


Am I right am I right?
Never knowing what's coming
Or whether to duck
I'm aww-struck
No said it was easy 
But they never mentioned it be this hard
Yeah, I pray 
I pray to God everyday
Some days.......all day
I think he has more on his plate right now than me,
You see
All I can do is lol as the wind blows
Go with it but stay true about those
Those those
Optimistic goals
They seem clear 
Just not close to here
It's on the way thru trenches n
Benches n 
Cannibalisyic presence
Indescribable objection
Derressed state of wtf next, .....then
Days n night don't matter
They just blend
Til a curve ball blows up a cars rear end
Grab the sledgehammer n break the walls down
Bum rush everyone in the crowd
Be defiant or die trying to achieve the real of a tyrant
What is last n precious
Becuz its gone as the days are long
N never 
Forget a face.............Peace

    I like y0ur style an the way you think, Eddie. We may cause quite a commotion with the sledgehammer and the bum's rush, but in those last precious days we always want to find peace. Does "wtf" stand for "what then friends"? I'm not to up on all the abbreviations people use, but I did get the others in this awesome poem. Love, Carolyn
