Dystopia: The Hunger Games PoemDystopia: The Hunger Games Poem2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I wake up blinded by the sunlight
Only to realize absence of life's delight
Everyone yearning for brightness
In this place enclosed in darkness
The piercing pain,
The woeful cries
The thirst for greater wealth
To achieve a better health
Families tenuous of starvation
Parents and children seeking direction
Each district secretly wanting insurrection
Against the Capitol's greedy agitation
Iridescent competition for survival created,
Controlling life for entertainment started
All of us longing for an end to this rapture
No longer wanting to suffer from this seizure
This dystopia encased in obscurity
Residents being absorbed by vanity
Can this really be reality?
Why is it devoured in catastrophe?
What caused us to give birth to human bestiality?

When the darkness comes
When the shadows return
Six lights will awake
Guided by their friendship
With the power of
Harmony within them
Together they will
Bring an end to evil
Honesty will fight against any lies
Kindness will aid those overwhelmed by anger
Laughter will wither all sadness away
Generosity will help those in need
Loyalty will strike bravery into the hearts
Magic will then make everything complete!
Rise forth once more
With the sun and moon guiding their way
They will always prevail!
You'll find your way!
Lift us through
In souls and hearts!
Rise forth once more
Spirits of Harmony
When the darkness comes
When the shadows return
Six lights will awake
Guided by their friendship
With the power of
Harmony within them
Together they will
Bring an end to evil!
Honesty will help stand us firm as mountains

October, 1476. Firenze. Italia.
The people's shouts filled the air with a haunting resonance. He couldn't see what stood at the center of the frenzied mass, but he didn't need to see to know. His feet carried him closer to the podium and through the clumped mass before him. It was early October, the fall season in full swing upon the Italian city-state of Firenze. And today, three men stood upon the gallows awaiting the swift hand of fate to claim their lives as prize.
"Giovanni Auditore," A voice boomed out over the indecipherable shouts of the mob. The mention of his father's name stopped Ezio dead in his tracks. His heart beat quickened as he silently joined the crowd to watch the matter at hand.
"You and your accomplices stand accused of the crime of treason. Do you have any evidence to counter this charge?"
"Yes;" His father shouted in reply. "The documents that were delivered to you last night!" That was right. Ezio himself hadn't slept a wink after he'd delivered them himself to

Of the future.
Enemies wont kill us but the
Sickness will be our demise.
Life will be destroyed
If not buy each other but by
Future sicknesses and diseases
Everyone will die, no survivors.
Many, many things to be destroyed
All to important to keep intact
The end will come fast and swift
Taken our lives will always be
Everyone is fighting and complaining
Ruining the little time we have left.
We all complain and fight about
How we are to live and work together.
Everyone will regret the time they spent on earth
Not knowing that they had so little time.
The time is near, its almost too late
Here will lay a broken world
Everyone will be gone or broken
Running from the killers of the world
Earth will become a dead planet soon.
If we don't stop fighting we will die
Stop the fighting or we will self-destruct.
New beginnings are what we need
Old memories will be placed behind.
The end of the world is coming near
Is there any hope for the future?

Wanna show them how to move?

While we just dance and dodge
Who needs rules
When we've got each other?
Gravity can say good bye
'Cause We've got a long way to go
And a short time to fly
Take my hand Gunslinger
Do you trust me

Make a name out there
Where the world's not tamed
Let's ditch these clones

Let's show them we don't care
And steal a movie kiss
Wanna show 'em Gunslinger?
Wanna prove we're everything they're not?
Wanna dance in the black light?
Wanna move in the strobe?

Come and hold me tight
'Cause while you're with me
I know everything's alright
So let's do this Gunslinger
Let's go out there and fight
Let's know we're the best
and kiss when the blood falls like rain
And if we go down
Let's go in a hail of bullets
and take them all with us
I'm your Lady Gunslinger
Just ask me
And I'll be by your side
Until the Earth cracks and the sun dies

New Year's Eve, 1999
On New Year's Eve in 1965 a young couple stood before a minister in the house
of the young man's parents. The house, now long since gone, built around the
turn of the century, stood in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, many miles from
the Charlottesville, Virginia, home of the young woman.
The gathering there included only the young man's family, all of whom must
have been skeptical about the chances for the success of the marriage beginning
that day. The couple had known each other only about four months, and had spent
most of those four months separated by hundreds of miles of telephone line.
She had ridden the train to Atlanta a few days earlier, back when train lines
had names; this line had been called the "Nancy Hanks." He picked her up at
Union Station, a magnificent depot, now also long since gone. He spotted her
coming up the enormous marble stairs from the platform to the main floor, also

"I'm right here sensei..." Sakura didn't like how things were looking. She didn't know exactly what happened, but she did know Tsunade was drinking last night. It was something she only did these days since she was Hokage when her old friend Jiraiya was in the village.
"Oh, well has Shizune found Jiraiya yet?" She asked, barely looking up at Sakura.
Sakura couldn't help but to be nervous, Tsunade was clearly upset. If she had any chance of changing her master's mood, she would have to know what happened "I... don't know. Um, Tsunade... what happened last night?"
Tsunade sighed, at first reluctant to say anything, but she had called Sakura to help too, "It's nothing, it's... just stupid. Just let this be a lesson... not to drink too much." Tsunade blushed.
"Well, I'm not old enough anyway." Sakura gave a nervous giggle and waited for Tsunade to continue.

We Danced in the RainWe Danced in the Rain9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
We watch the rain fall,
We stand together,
In each others arms,
And I begin to hear the music play
It starts out soft,
Just like the rain,
I feel the music course through me,
I begin to sway to the sound
I turn around, give you a little smile,
I take your hand,
"Shall we Dance?" I say,
Then I lead you out into the rain
Our bodies so close together,
Keeping us warm, fighting the cold,
Looking into your eyes,
All I see is love
Not caring about the rain,
Pouring down on us,
Because all I see,
Is you and me
The song ends,
But we dont stop dancing,
Because now it's just you and me,
I look up to the sky,
I feel the rain soaking my clothes,
But all of that is lost,
When I look at you again
All I could feel was,
Love, Happiness, Contentment,
All those feelings we shared,
As we danced in the rain

We mustn't miss a beat
We'll change our Windows 98
To one less obsolete
I unplugged the tower from its wire maze
For an upgrade I did ask
The man said, "Three to five business days
It'll take to finish the task."
Computerless. At first it seems
An inconvenience small,
Then came the barely stifled screams-
Oh, no! Computer withdrawal!
No E-mail! Our palms did sweat
No solitaire! No internet!
Indeed, our longing got so bad
We even missed the pop-up ads!
Day after day our gaze would land
(We couldn't help ourselves)
Upon the bare computer stand
It's empty, lifeless shelves.
Three to five days long were past
When finally, it came at last
A joyful message on the phone
Hurray! Our baby's coming home!
So share with us our boundless joy!
We welcome home our favorite toy,
And hope with desperate hope and tears
That we won't need an upgrade for many years!

"I Love You Baby", thats what she said,
But he just looked at her eyes full of sorrow,
So she said, "Dont worry, I will see you tomorrow"
But that night something woke her,
A terrible feeling filled her body,
She whispered, "Oh No, Please not my Tommy"
She tossed and turned, unable to sleep,
She felt a haunting feeling about the next day,
He had scared her when he had looked at her that way
She sat up in bed, and began to cry,
Something was terribly wrong, she just knew it,
She could feel it in her heart, it had slipped into a dark pit
The next day had come too soon,
But she had to see Tommy right away,
She got in her car, and drove to his place
She walked up to his door, and gave it a knock,
All the while hoping that Tommy was alright,
The door opened, she walked in, she screamed at the sight
Lying limp against the wall, was Tommys body,
A bullet through his head, blood on the walls,
A staining note lay in the bloody pools

His skin was white, and his body was weak
But what he lacked in strength and body mass
He made up for in knowledge of Wee Jas.
He warned the others about her powers
His truthful teaching went on for hours.
After he was done, the Pardoner said,
"You and I are brothers, my good friend!"
"Dear sir, are you accusing me of lies?
I swear to Vecna my words have no ties
They are free and true, Nerull strike me down.
You say we are brothers? To that I frown."
There is no loyal a man than the geek.
Just ask the elves, orcs, or dwarves: they'll shriek
And talk of his goodness and vast wisdom
Surpassing that of a silver dragon.
Even Erythnul will show him pardon
For his path has been chosen by Fharlanghn.
He is destined to help those most in need,
To spread the word and sew the seed
Of Gods and Goddesses seated most high,
Which can be hard, since he hardly sees sky.

I will die by my own hands
I will fall from the earth
Into the sky and then space.
My tears run down my cheek
From the oceans in my eyes
Through the maze of blemishes
To the end of their world, upon my hand.
There is a poison in my veins
Its known well as my blood
I cant live without this poison
Yet I still release it without regret.
Forced upon the blade of resentment
Slicing the wrapping around my soul
Damaging what has already been damaged
Causing poison to flow outwards.
Stains appear upon once white sheets
Screams are heard in once quiet halls
Tears fall from once empty eyes
As my soul begins to escape the wrapping.
Who knew we could open so easily
This is the only way I open up to you
I open the wrapping paper from my soul
And watch it float away on the sea of crimson red.
What lays upon my blood covered lap
Is your heart, still beating, but only just
I don't know what to do with it
So I stare at it, watching it beat softly.
So softly, I cant help wonder
