Poem By Jenny MORETTER

I woke up happy today
All the pain from yesterday had gone way
I sat on the couch and turned on the TV
I started crying it was so hard to believe
People killing each other all around the world
To adults, new babies, little boys and young girls
Who makes you God to take another one's life?
Did you even give your victim a chance to put up a fight?
You ended their future which could have been so bright
I honestly do not know how you can sleep at night
It makes me sick to think what you put them through
Listening to their cries of pain and fear what did they do to you?
Do you have any remorse for what you have done?
How can you not realize what you did was so wrong
I hope you get caught and live your life in a cell
Those families have suffered and went through pure hell
They only have pictures now to remember their loved ones face
No more I love you, hugs of affection, no more loving embrace
For the person they once loved is now forever gone
They know in their hearts they must now move on
I want you to know that you have forever changed someone's life
The day you decided to take their loved one's life.

' My Mom'

</>My mom used to always hold me tight
She was always there to kiss me goodnight
My mom was there to give me a bath and wash my hair
She was even there when I got scared

Some Say

Some say love is pure and true
I say it is falling for someone who should never hurt you
Some say love is standing by your side
I say it is not sitting in silence for a long car ride

Moving On

Please forgive me, you ask of me everyday
I want to say yes but instead just turn and walk away
You want me to move forward and trust what you say
How can I do this when you lied to me everyday


I looked in the mirror afraid I might see
This ugly girl looking back at me
The tears started pouring from my eyes
All the pain I carry just dying inside

A Little Voice

Can we go for a walk today?
Maybe just go outside and play
Please do not sit on the couch and watch TV
Come roll on the floor and play with me
