Such a Tired Disease

(first poem; at age 15)

They cheat lives
And close their minds
So empty inside
No more do things shine
Sitting in anxious chairs 
Lying love is all they care
Cheating all their dares
And stealing hope without a care
Your smile's lost in the devils moonlight
Dear child you’re engrossed in dark lights
Induced pain is how they bend
But it feels so good to feel again
The kids walk side by side
No smiles but hatred they only hide
They wish for happiness oh so dire
But all they feel is the rod on fire
'Please loosen up, ” the parasites plead 
A silent response is dead indeed 
For children trip and children fall
But they are forced, into this crashing call
