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.

15. "You Just Don't Want To Live"

It's not that you're depressed. 

You just don't want to live. 

In no way are you oppressed.  

You just don't want to live. 

You know that your family loves you. 

You just don't want to live. 

Your friends think the world of you. 

You just don't want to live. 

You've no intent to hurt them. 

You just don't want to live. 

You like your life. There's no deception. 

You just don't want to live. 

There are others who have it even worse. 

You just don't want to live. 

Why are you sad? You aren't sure. 

You just don't want to live. 

You're thankful and glad that you were born. 

You know you've got so much to give. 

The world is your oyster—they say that so often. 

You just don't want to live. 

All you see is darkness 

For reasons you may not know. 

Or perhaps the reasons are many, 

And you can't fathom how quickly it grows. 

There's nothing you can do to fix it, 

No matter how hard you cry. 

You feel it will never get better. 

And you can't bring yourself to try. 

So the night swarms all around you. 

And you've given all you can give. 

It's not that you want to die... 

You just don't want to live.
