Childhoods Crushed

Poem By Kathryn Marie Thurman

A little girl from beverly hills,
cried from her hotel in Rome.
For even though she had all the bills,
she had parents who were never home.

A little boy from east LA,
cried in his sleep for his dad was taken away.
His dad promised his son that he would be home and ok,
not knowing that he was gonna be shot that day.

For even though they will never meet,
the two kids live with weak heart beats.
They try and look for answers with all their might,
now at least, their not crying alone through the long, sleepless night.

Dealing With The Pain

The pain that people feel,
is the rough past coming out.
You just have to embrace and deal,
so in peace may lay your doubts.

Waiting On The World To Be

Back in the good old days,
it was all about the 'happily ever after'.
Now there are no sunny rays,
but only judgmental laughter.

Only In America 2008

The day finally came,
where our hope was untorn.
Shouting out Obamas famous name,
so we don't have to cope anymore.

Live The Life You Love..Love The Life You Live

Through all the injustice making life not fair,
the world is choking, gasping for air.

Even though people differ in color, beliefs, and tongues,

With Those Dog Tags

Away at war,
and in a foreign land.
Your heart being torn,
between two great demands.
