God's BlessingsDespite all the bad in this world,God's Blessings5 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
The death, the sicknesses, the wars,
Amid all the sorrow and pain,
There is much to be thankful for
God has given many blessings
How many has He given you?
I know I have many blessings
And just to name only a few
A family that cares for me
A snug roof that covers my head
Food to eat, and clothes for my back,
Along with a warm, cozy bed
Good friends, who are loving and true,
Just like a second family
A proud and noble country
Where I know I will always be free
But the greatest blessing of all
Is one that's neither bought nor sold
It's more precious than anything
Far better than silver or gold
It is my Savior, Jesus Christ,
Who gave His life for you and me,
Who loves us with a special love
That transcends all eternity
SchizophreniaI see themSchizophrenia9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
They talk to me all the time
They tell me things
Sometimes they tell me to hurt people
People I love
People I hate
Usually a little girl visits me
Though she never grows older
She plays jacks in the living room
It constantly distracts me
My wife can't see them
And I know she thinks I'm insane
She threatens to take the baby and leave
I try to make things better so she won't
I love her too much
The people who visit me tell me the government is plotting against me
That they have put a microchip in my arm
I've tried to dig it out but can never find it
I can't stop them from coming
I want them to leave
But they won't
I can't stop them
I can't control them
I just want to be normalů.
SchizophreniaI hate you.Schizophrenia5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm lying to myself.
I wish you were dead.
You'll never be dead to me.
You're awful, and terrible, and selfish, and mean.
I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you.
And after this, I'll never write for (about) you again.
Just thinking of you brings me inspiration.
Wishing we had never met, I'll curse my heart and yours until they blacken (your's already is).
Pretending, you do not..
exist, I will move on.
Our dalliance is over,
our friend(court)ship complete.
Never again, will I think of you, oh darling.
My heart beats fast at the mention of your name..
and not having you makes me wish
I were dead.
Staring at you, I can't look away.
You're beautiful, and good God, you know it.
I hope that you never fall in love and that,
no one ever loves you
And when you see my name,
I hope you're dying inside.
I'm dying inside,
my lies are not working.
I know you can tell that I love you.
I love you.
