Peculiar Poetry

Poetry with and without reason and rhyme.
Strange is what I strive for.
Expect lyrics and limericks, free verse and format.
Be prepared for bubbly and boiled, terrifying and horrifying.
Keep an eye out for those that provoke your thoughts, and some that bear no thought at all.
Many written for class, and others without much of it.
Feel free. There are no boundaries. Just think.
Consider, Ponder, Wonder, Imagine.
Argue, Oppose, Debate, Defend.
Perhaps you will be offended.
That's good.
Think about that.
Learn more of what you think.
How you think.
Take what you can from what you hate.
I don't seek to preach.
I only speak my mind.
A mind most peculiar.


11. "Life"

We take life so for granted. 

Television teaches that life isn't important. 

Killing people is perfectly fine. It's just one or two lives—not very many at all. 

Gaming shows that life never ends.

Did you die? That's okay. Just click X to respawn. 

But this is not true. 

That is not life. 

All creatures on earth live their own little lives, 

And those little lives are not eternal. 

Life is short. Life is limited. 

No one lives forever. 

Life is also fragile. Extremely fragile. 

More breakable than the finest china. 

Life can end. Life can stop.

In a minute.

A second.

A moment.

An instant. 

With the jab of a knife.

The click of a trigger.

The impact of a car.

The strike of disease.

The coming of old age. 

And once it is gone, you can't get it back.

No second chances. No second thoughts. 

So what are we doing?

Wasting so much of our precious time, 

Our precious life, 

On so many petty, selfish things?

Shouldn't we be putting our time into helping others?

To loving each other?

To serving one another?

To doing for others as we would want done for us?

Making sure they can enjoy their little lives?

Shouldn't we be serving the Lord and thanking Him in all things? Praying to Him and glorifying his Holy Name? 

So answer me: 

Why are we wasting so much time,

So much life,

On minuscule matters that will never last? 



I'd like to know myself...
