Ok, calm down. =P

Here's one. It's a Haiku. As you can probably see > . >

A whisper of light,
Piercing the gloomy shadows
Of our greatest fears.

I call it Hope.

And a poem. Just wrote thiss-

We'd always been good friends.
When I was new, you'd show me the roots
And help me out with the hard parts.
And if you'd cry, I'd cry.
You'd laugh, I'd laugh with you.
You'd smile, I'd smile.
You fell, I'd catch you.
You died, I'd want to die too.
And all our time together;
I never got to say those three words.
And now you're going out with her.
And whenever you talk about her,
I feel sick.
Because I know you weren't meant to be with her.
I wish I would've said those three words,
But they chose to stay on the tip of my tongue.
I wish I'd said them,
They were so simple,
But they aren't much use now.
'I love you'

Okies.


I shiver with fear,
As I walk into the graveyard.
Memories, flooding back,
Of ancestors and family,
Relatives and strangers.
The gloom surrounds me
Like a blanket,
But cooling me.
I walk to the grave,
My grandfather's.
Engraved clearly -
'Robert Cole, died 18 March, 2008'
Memories
Flooding back,
Like a wave,
Smothering me.
Crying won't drown it out.
And beneath,
A rotting body,
Encased in a box of Ebony,
My grandfather.

Yes, this is kinda true. Grandad died on red nose day. . _ .

Tide

Crash
A wave,
Powerful against the rocks.
Wearing stone down,
Year after year.
Never stopping.
Like a heartbeat,
Thumping aimlessly,
helplessly.
How could a wave
Be so powerful?
Crash.
Another steady beat.
Then,
Husshh, hushh,
As the waves tumble back
Into the gray-green abyss.

Future

I like the idea of the future.
How everything's going to be perfect,
No misfits,
No mistakes.
But still,
What is the good in being perfect?
We learn from our mistakes,
They're what evolved us.
Learning,
Failing,
Correcting,
Assuming.
It's something that'll always be there.
We won't have microchips for brains,
Or wires for hair.
We'll evolve,
Expand,
Grow an empire throughout the universe,
Discover things,
Learn more.
We won't be perfect,
Not never.
For perfect,
In itself,
Is imperfect.
We'll stop poverty one day,
Possibly.
We'll stop the economy downfall one day,
Maybe.
We'll stop disease,
Not likely.
For in the future,
We'll be clever.
But not genius.
We may never stop global warming,
Our home planet may implode on itself.
Who knows?
For we cannot know the future,
For that would be perfect.
