Nature

I am nature,
beautiful nature.

I am the grass that tickles your toes.
I am the water when you turn on the hose.

I am the clouds that stretch beyond your eyes.
I am the bugs that you call flies.

Did you know I make you live?
It is all because of what I give.

I coil my branches and sprout leaves.
I grown in your garden in a form you call weeds.

You give me love,
but you kill my doves.

Why do you hate me so?

School

Dear School,

I spend eternity in your presence,

letting you feed me letters and numbers.

You make me who I am,

You make me who I want to be,

So why do you hate me when I love you so much?

 

I want to go home and have help on my homework.

I want ot absorb the wonders of your world.

So why do you hate me when I love you so much?

 

You take me in,

and spit me out.

Why am I not good enough for you?

Why did you decide I didn’t matter?

Why do you hate me when I used to love you so much?

 

I want to reach my highest potential,

I want to learn life lessons.

I had dreams once,

and you crushed them.

Why do you hate me so?

 

You stared into my soul,

and pushed me past my goal.

So now when you hate me,

I will hate you back,

and you can never change that.
