Piercing The Sky, A Book of My Poems
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 121
Day Two Away (9): All Around Me

August 31, 2010 WRITTEN IN SCHOOL




I look around me

And all I can ever see

Is the dead

Dead kids, dead teachers

No hope for a future


I've become so lax

I refuse to do the work

Only read

Only write

As I think intently

About tonight


What she'll do

What we'll say

What will happen today?


Confused, I'm so lost

Sweating hard

I must smell horrid

But all I care about is you


These are the memoirs

Of the fallen

Of the lost poet
