Ever found yourself wondering why?
Why to everything, everyone
Why even question it?
Why aren't we done yet
And why are we here?
Why to be happy
And why to have fear.
Guess that's the one thing
To stop me from leaving here
But why go
If there aren't any tears?


And, looking up to the sky
I wonder why I'm not a cloud
Or blue ink spilled very high
That never really came
D
 O
  W
    N...

And maybe nothing is real
But the one word plaguing my mind
From my head to my hands to my heels
There's only one word to find.

Why look, why run
Why open up your eyes
When there's no sun
When someday you're gonna die?
Why live if everyone already knows
That you
And I
Are only growing up to die?

"Why?"

Written during, well, history class. Not that I missed anything... I mean, we didn't do squat. Just reviewed. And I felt like writing poetry, so what is a class to stem the flow of creative juices in my soul?
I didn't mean to make that rhyme, but it sounded pretty cool, haha.
Perhaps I'll write another poem...
What is a description to stem the flow of creative juices in my soul?
Then again, that phrase rather irritates me. It's not even a full rhyme.
If anyone who doesn't know me was reading this, they'd probably think I was really rather strange. Which I am. So... hi, strangers!!
I'm going to shut up now. At least in this box.

dude sweet poem..and the emphasis on certain words is epic(:

ts-squid Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
:D Thanks! I was experimenting with making it more freeverse-ish with the emphasizing, though it was still rhyming.

thats cool! I love free verse (all I ever write in..) though.. I think its epic when people rhyme..because frankly, I suck at rhyming(: haha so the fact that you sorta combined both is epic(:

That's awesome, I used to write fanfics all the time. They're so fun, aren't they?

Yes. What made you stop writing when you just said they're fun? ^^;

Idk, I think I just got tired of writing them, and it was replaced by other hobbies. Like, back then, I hardly ever wrote poetry or drew. Now I do.

:) Why write it? I'm not sure why... perhaps because I didn't know why I shouldn't!

I suppose that if I just commented to agree and say Yup again, that'd be pretty boring... so I guess I'll just go with this.
