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.

33. "We Know Nothing"

Little kids aspire

to be "grown-ups" 

because they've understood

that adults can do whatever 

they want. And they're right

Yet nowadays, 

so many loathe

the concept, and complain

about "adulting"

for that exact reason. Because it means 

that from now onthey can

do whatever they want, and they will be held accountable

for whatever they decide to do. And sadly,

life is not a Disney movie

Fate does not always end 

just as you wish. Karma does not result 

in the revenge you desired. 

Happy endings are not granted

by fairy god mothers. 

Goodness and kindness will be frowned upon,

and wickedness will be praised. 

Allies will not always return the favor. 

Good intentions are not guaranteed 

to bring about good things. 

It is not fair. 

Life is

not 

fair.

And as much as my generation,

as well as the one that came before us,

stick up our noses in obstinacy,

and act as if we know what is best, 

perhaps

we are just

terrified. 

Because in reality,

We

know

nothing.
