Poem By Spidey Ortiz

Life is like a river.
The river of life is long and deep.

Sometimes the river becomes rough,
and the swift current overwhelms.

Rocks protruding from the waters
become obstacles threatening our path.

These parts of the river, like life,
for all intent, seem to be impassable.

Water thrashing around us
On the edge of succumbing to the cold water.

At these times we feel, ironically,
as if we may drown in the river of life.

When we feel we can no longer swim,
and it feels as if all hope is lost.

The current slows, the water warms,
and our journey on the river ends.

Why Me?

I wonder when the doctor says that somethings not quite right.
I wonder why the blurry vison is troubling my sight.

The tests they come, back to back, and discover the awful truth.

My Friends

What is friendship defined?
How do you distinguish
from those that are unkind?

Theresa-A Limerick

My friend Theresa who's kind,
The bestest friend you can find,
but there is just one hitch,
she can be a real beotch,

Angela-A Limerick

Angela a friend that is dear,
is full of hope and of fear,
moving from home,
to be all alone,

Sara- A Limerick

A sweet girl I met on a weekend,
Has many poems she's penned,
We think much the same,
you ask me her name?
