    your book speaks of a day
    one for which you pray never comes
    you go about your days in wonder and fear
    ignorance to protect the now
    for a day will come, a day you wont know how
    hiding in the busy, passing the blame
    blame for the shame of your trespass

    I know of a day, soon to come to pass
    I hear it in the trees and feel it in the grass
    I see it in the skies as fiery smokestacks burn my eyes
    I smell it in the rain like chemical weapon pain
    I taste it in our animals soon to be cannibales
    I know the earth she no longer can hold this girth
    vomiting forth toxicity
    of our inevitable apocolypic possabilities

    Sharp observations, K. I'm just hoping you're taking a tangential road and aren't really this cynical. Whatever the case, you've got potential to burn. Great stuff!

    wow! i hope i can write like this when i am 10. oh i forgot, i'm way past that.

    Perhaps he is-perhaps he is not knight; only he knows the truth. However it is not impossible for a 10 year old to be this precocious and observent of the world around him. Age is not intellectual definition.

    Kage - Unlike, some of the others ... I do not believe that your 10 yrs old, nor do I believe anything else in your profile. But.... I don't care about it either. However ... I do believe that you have a great talent and thank you for sharing your poetry and insights. Great job with this poem - an honest look at our troubled world.

    Wow, this from a 10 year old boy! You must be some sort of genius or something. I loved this! Please keep on writing.

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
