I Did It

Poem By Jordan Davis

I did it
I kept going and didn't quit
The yelling pounded in my ears
Like it has for so many years
My father shouting, my tears rising
I was one breath away from crying
My brother cursing, my body trembling
Please make it stop, I'd do anything
So I clean the dishes in the silence I made
How is this different from other days?
I created this and I feel like shit
I did it all, I did it....

The Thing

I'm standing in a field of green
Sunshine, flowers and grass to see
Bunnies, birds and deer are there
You can see them everywhere


The running water of the river is putting me to sleep
The promise of staying awake until dinner is hard for me to keep
My dog is resting peacefully beside my folding chair
In this place for camping I do not have a care


No one sees me,
Am I not there?
Am I invisible?
Or do you just not care?

With My Back To City Hall, On Yom Kippur

The gnats love the highway dividers,
the freelance pickup artists love the softness of the hands
of the women who love their friends
for walking with them laughing at the situation,

Are They Really Right?

Aliens, Bigfoot and monsters in spite
Who people talk about day and night
But the thing that concerns me
That most people can't see

My Secret Place

I'm sitting by the riverside on a sturdy log
I can think so clearly here my mind works just like cogs
I'm hidden by the sticks and bush on eather side of me
But the view infront of I is more than THEY can see
