The Button ~ Poetry

Mar 15, 2014 - 6 comments

I am going to ask you a question

that'll test your courage and your strength

It may be very easy

or may make very little sense


Black and white walls

its nothing or all

There is no in between

you either rise, or you fall

These walls surrounding you,

have no windows or doors

Just dried out paint peeling

and a  very slippery floor

But one thing in that room

may seem worth moving forward

There is a button on the other side

press it? and your on your way to heaven

There is no one to hold on to

or tell you what to do

Its a decision you make alone

past words from others, can only guide you

I should probably let you know

you are being chased by something you fear

A spider, a snake, a bear

whether you scream or not, no one will hear

So with this button

in a moment you could disappear,

Not enough time to ask yourself,

What it is your doing here?

You can let this button

be the thing that keeps you sane

With only one moment to decide,

would you for once decide to be vain?

Or would you give it all up

for the pain for others to be called upon

Lets just say what you felt inside

well... soon it'll catch on

Its a heck of a world we live in

lives lost from so much pain

You have little faith in that rainbow

but are still trying to survive the rain

So if you had this option

to decide whether you live or die

Would you press this button?

Or would you pass it by?

Just keep in mind,

you don't have very long to decide...

This is a great poem! I honestly don't know what I'd decide. This is a heck of a world we live in but I like the person I'm becoming. It's been a long road and I know I still have plenty of learning and growing to do. I remember when I was 15 and thought that maybe this world would be a better place without me. My world was crumbling around me and it felt like it could never get better. I would have pushed the button in a split second. Now, I see how much I have gained through the horrible things I've been though and I can also see all the wonderful people, friends and family, who've touched my life and impacted me. Ultimately, I want to leave something, even if it's small, in this world that may be a help to others. Thank you for sharing your poem! :-)

Well I am so glad  that in thinking ahead for the long run, you wouldn't have pressed the button... Your having faith in what your becoming, and that's amazing! It always gets better... It takes time I guess right? And that is very true, it would be great to leave something in this world... Sometimes you don't know if you are capable of leaving anything though...
:/ Anyway, thanks so much for reading my poem. It means a lot. :) :)

Wow, incredible poem, incredible gift from a gifted girl. Thanks so much for picking up your pen Marc and working out on paper. I can see your perfection here. Give yourself a break always, but never give up on trying for your personal best, for your personal best is wonderful when it manifests itself as it has done so here.

Thank you so much Liz :)
That means so much. I think its about time I share my strength with people, I think I have kept it to myself for so long because I never felt it was good enough... But since I have shared them with others, I have received so many comments on how amazing they are. Im so happy I have found a reason to be alive, something I am good at. Maybe this is a stepping stone for me, to finally get everything together with school and all.
