my ticket

this is not just a poem this is my ticket out of here these are not just words there steps taking me somewhere this isn't just a page in a book it's a society taking a second look and taking me up another level rescuing me from a devil that held me down for so so long this is not just a poem this is someones dream a picture of heaven a wonderous scene this is a heart filled with love words that tell the meaning of to a society taking a second look this is not just a page in a book it's something to ponder bidding take a deeper look this is not just a poem this is a call to arms on the lips of our heroes in the hearts of our sons join in the battle for freedom join in the battle of love join in the name of the Father and the Son this is not just a verse in a song it's a universal call to make right what is wrong this is not just a poem this is a child to a barren man a tombstone a monument i inscribe with my own hand my institution my revolution my way to move on my dedication for your education and encouragement to be strong these are my words that i hope i used well in hope that this poem is my ticket out of hell

Each verse is a poem in itself with a message all its own which is so special. You have some great analogies describing some of the ways life affects us.

This is classic, Situation, a poem much strength and the power of your will. I thought it was one verse, then the more I read, the more I felt entrapped by your words and subject! Happy you've been featured, happy I'd come here to read this! Best wishes, Mikki
