Who Cares?

Poem By Kelsi Brockway

Who cares what you think?
Who cares about your clothes?
I dont think you realize
That this whole thing is getting old.
So let me stand and be the one to say
Who cares that you have money?
Who cares that you think your great?
Popularity is fleeting
But knowledge is forever
arm your self with books
A pencil is your sword
A piece of paper a shield
So although they laugh now
It is all about the last laugh any how.
But i guess there is a place for people like you
On the streets
In the dumpster
looking for food
Or better yet
a nothing
a no one.
Who cares who you are right now?
Think about what you'll end up as in 20 years from now.

Up the hill we climb
The old sled in tow
Snow flakes pepper my coat
As up the hill we go

Speak Softly

Speak softly
My gentle villian
For the words you speak bring pain
They cut me deep

If I Were To Be Reborn

If i were to be reborn
I would want to be a raindropp
So worldly and travled i couldnt be ignored
Through lifes bitter storm

Sleepless Nights

Memories plague me
They remind me of you
And what you ment to me
Before you didn't come through

Willow Tree

Willow tree,
willow tree
how lovely you are
your branches weep and bow to the wind
