15 (who?)
We tend to break it down to,
minutes, days, years;
to lengthen the torture and
to slow our growing fears.

It’s hard not to notice; the
broken souls wandering alone,
smiles acting as masks, and
desperate bullies looking for home.

We seek for our belief in the wrong places;
in parties and nameless pills in bowls,
in greedy money and unfamiliar people,
when we should seek within our own soul.

We all give reasons and excuses but
when others splinter our hearts,
the forgiveness that we expect is lost,
and logic is quickly torn apart.

We live in a double standard world,
where what we expect of others
is not expected in ourselves
we no longer act as sisters and brothers.  

Perhaps we are all prisoner to our pain,
manacled and bound;
and if you look
there’s insanity in it all,
everywhere to be found.
I haven't written any poetry in an incredibly long time, since last year actually, so I'm quite sorry if it's a little rough.

My internet is actually being a b**** and I can't come on as much as I'd like anymore, as it takes an hour to loud one page.
Yeah, it's like the old damn dial up that we had in the 90's only worst.

But anyway, this is my new piece. :D

Loved this piece. I agree with it's meaning too, we live in a world where people expect things of us, but do not hold themselves to the same standards. The varying fonts was interesting, added something to the poem, wish I knew how to do that.

Thank you very much :)
I'd been expire ting with the changes in font, but I'm glad they're coming across well liked :)

The way you use different fonts just intrigues me, and the it flows is great.

I like the way you've used different fonts, it add to the idea of insanity that is everywhere. Plus it's a really interesting read, well done.

Thank you very much :)
This is interesting. I enjoy the simple reality that it holds, while stating such in a manner that simply makes it stand out. It is not difficult to understand, nor is it easy to comprehend. It requires analysis, due to the fact that it is very rare that we notice our own nature.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it :)

I really like this. It's like putting words to thoughts that are on my mind many a day. If I were to say anything, however, it would be in the first stanza, you said "We tend to break it down", but you didn't say what 'it' is. Reading on, we can infer that 'it' is time, but I personally think it should be clarified right off the bat. You of course don't have to do this; it's your piece after all and this is just my opinion.
