This is a poem by me, I made it for a co-worker, his father passed recently.

Lament of the Child
Sitting down, looking through the window,
I feel sorrow, an unspoken pain, my heart dwindles,
There is nothing that remains, but an essence,
An existence of a name, with which we've been blessed.
Recollecting those past moments, seeing the happiness in them,
Not fully fulfilled, but missing your love,
Knowing you are there in every scene I think of,
Missing your embrace, the touch of your soul,
Reflecting myself to be like you, a genuine mold.
I see you within me, and search for my peace,
Thank you for what have been to me, and for loving me.
And for helping me become the person I am today,
For what you have done for me I am proud to say,
I am your child, your legacy left to the world,
Your continuing essence, your life that remains untwirled.
This is my sorrow, my pain, my suffering,
My lament, for my spirit to grieve, and my heart to open,
Because you mean so much more than you'll ever know,
And so much more than I could ever be able to show.

Another by me, just read it to see if you can relate.

Danger
I feel it, deep within me there is this beast,
It claws, it bites, it strikes at the cage in me,
It wants to be free, allowed to roam openly, to do as it pleases,
But I hold it back, I keep it within, for all its dangers,
Knowing the power that it holds, the damage it can do,
People wouldn't dare speak with me, if they only knew,
I'm fearful of how strong it has become,
And now I worry what that may mean for my own sanity,
My mind is torn open, split in half, lost in the abyss,
Fighting this animal, this monster that wants out,
A war waging in the walls of my brain weakening me each day,
My heart being seduced by the words that so tempt me,
By the thought of pain I can inflict, the pleasure it gives me,
How do I hold on, what do I do, how can I be freed?
The answer has not come, and I am not done, please release me.

This next one is a bit childish, but I wrote it when I was 16, so it's kind of expected.

This Is Me
I am the man by the name of Andre Ratchford.
I do things based on my own accord.
I'm strong,brave,and bold.
This isn't to say I'll never get old.
It's best to say that I have a vicious rhyme.
I'll give it to you just in the nick of time.
I'm one of the best and you better know it.
That's one of the reasons I call myself a
proet.
If you know me now,you better take a look,
Sooner or later you'll be reading my
handwritten book.
Me and my main man Jeff,will take over the
show and leave nothing left.
You now know everything that you see.
So you know now that this is me.

This one I did a couple days ago.

This Is Me (Revived)
I've come back, returning once again,
Learning more and striding stronger than,
I've ever been before, giving more ever before,
Living this life, dreaming of heights,
Untouchable by men, going further to a deeper end,
Acknowledging faults, smoothing out my road,
Positivity made, able to bare a heavier load,
Following life's rules, but making my own code,
Building a empire within myself, being more bold,
Knowing my potential, defining my own mold.
An original, a visionary, an intellectual,
A soul without limitations, but seemingly skeptical,
Revived, renewed, revitalized, remade, returned,
This Is Me.

This one is for my wife.

True Affection
You're the only one to hold my heart,
And not crush it when our talks grew hard,
Never falsifying the love you have,
Pulling ever closer as we walk this path,
Believing in me when I myself was afraid,
Staying with me even after the choices I made,
Caring in ways no one else has,
Longing for my happiness at each pass,
You see to my soul through my protective mask,
And comfort my spirit from my mind's torment,
You saved my life from destroying itself,
Rewarded with the strongest love my heart could ever give,
The one I've never had to regret loving,
Even though I offer more, you want nothing,
Nothing but to be allowed to love me back,
And to fix all of the parts my heart may lack,
Denying access of your heart to anyone else,
Reserving yourself for me, myself,
Giving only to me your heart, soul, mind, and body,
Loving true, strong, and genuinely.

This is the last one I'll put up for right now, so if you want to see more of my other ones, go to the site listed with the first I posted, and put in my name in the search.

Evolve
Throughout time we haved learned and grown,
Each mistake bringing us closer to our perfection.
Striving, reaching further with every step,
Creating and manipulating the world with our dreams.
Manifesting our imaginations to the eyes of the earth,
Visionaries having no bounds in our hearts or minds.
Masters of control over our destinies,
Shaping the world to be what we desire of it.
Though acknowledging the fact that we are still meager,
Yet eager to grasp the truth of our existence.
Fearing what lies ahead of us but ever vigilant to see,
That which escapes our finger tips.
Never content with being the same,
But never fully satisfied with the position we gain.
There is only one thing that remains the same with us,
The fact that we must grow strong and evolve.

On the job defecation,
Where every sh!t feels like a vacation.

Ok, I know it's not a serious one like BP's, but I think it's one every man should know.  :biggrin:


People who think they know it all really annoy those of us that do.

Do not lie to me,
I am honest with myself.
I always will be.

I don't know if that's one that I've heard/read somewhere, or if it just popped into my head. It's one that all should live be, IMO.

Well, this short poem is a haiku, 5-7-5, syllable count. A haiku is a Japanese style poem, but I forgot where the term came from.

"Bliss"
by C. Langdon

I was so silly to think that everything that
mom and dad told me were true.
they were drinkers, smokers, druggies, and cheaters.
being a christian was bliss.
its like a kiss with lips that tastes like cherry,
but its actually grape.
ignorance was bliss.
of the things you never told me
maybe most of them will
stay in your casket.

Dude, that was deep, and to think, it's the thing that brought me back to DP with me busying myself trying to find work and trying to work on finishing that fan fiction story for DP. I better hurry it up. Thanks for posting that man, I liked it.
