Premium Member Plastic Ban
This is First Poem of my Son

Do you know 
The plastic ban
The plastic ban
The plastic ban
Because the earth gets dirty.

Fishes eat that plastic
Animals get sick 
Animals get sick
Animals get sick
Making the oceans dirty.

Polluting gases in the air
Makes ozone hurt

Premium Member THE PAINT THAT NEVER DRIES
Music is a form of liquid art that, when you close your eyes,
will paint a picture in your mind with a paint that never dries.

And being that it’s liquid…music has one solitary goal
to paint all the crevices of your heart...Read More

What Good Are Our Tears
What Good Are Our Tears?
by Michael R. Burch

What good are our tears?
They will not spare the dying their anguish.
What good is our concern
to a child sick of living, waiting to perish?

What good, the warm benevolence of tears
without action?
What help, the...Read More

Nowhere
Forever a slave
To the thoughts in my mind...
To the memories....
I thought I had left behind....
The past creeps up slowly.
Haunting thoughts of you....
Wanting to control me.

It can't be true....
I saw the best in you.
But I look at you with a blank...Read More

Does any one care
Does any one care
That family life has changed.
We have forgotten
Our family members name

Does any one care
Our grandchildren say who
to that picture on facebook.
Just look they do have my eyes.

Does any one care
That most of the time
it funerals or weddings
We greet...Read More

Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light
But...Read More

Why The Simpsons Will Die
Every person on the Simpsons is sick and they will die.
They're suffering from Jaundice, that's the reason why.

Yet again the door is being knocked
Yet again the door is being knocked
For ages it’s been closed
Who is there?
The Sun looks down
Breeze Halts!
Tulips raise their heads
But the Cascade___still singing like an indifferent Bee

Knock___ knock___ Knock! 
How persistent the knocking is!!
But who is there?
Its light from the...Read More

She Named Him Lucky
As I was driving home one day
    a car pulled out quite quick.
Realizing what they'd done
    I instantly was sick.
Where they had stopped, a cardboard box
    did suddenly appear,
And sticking out...Read More

Me
I was born to be a survivor and a fighter.
That's why I became a writer.
As a child the physical abuse I endured.
Being a baby it was pretty absurd.

The child of recovering addicts.
Even one that still until recently would slip.
