21st century childThe most important thing I've learned,21st century child by BellaRomatica
So far as children are concerned,
Is to never Never NEVER
let them come near your computer screen ever.
Oh yes, I know it keeps them still,
They don't climb out the window sill,
They never fight or kick or punch,
They leave you free to cook the lunch
They will spend their entire day
Texting and clicking and typing away, but hey!
At least you can wash the dishes in the sink --
But did you ever stop to think,
What this social media and whatnot
Does it your beloved tot?
IT ROTS THE SENSE IN THE HEAD!!
IT KILLS IMAGINATION DEAD!!
IT CLOGS AND CLUTTERS UP THE MIND!!
IT MAKES A CHILD SO DULL AND BLIND
HE CAN NO LONGER UNDERSTAND
A FANTASY, A FAIRYLAND!!
HIS BRAIN BECOMES AS SOFT AS CHEESE!!
HIS POWERS OF THINKIN
FREEDOM or SAVETYThe other night I had a dream.FREEDOM or SAVETY by BellaRomatica
It was a world filled with equality.
But it wasn't quite, because they tried
To break me and my honesty.
Walking the thin line
Between good and vile.
Would I think it is fine,
Or disagree with a smile.
Would I risk getting locked away,
Because I speak my mind.
Would I be accepted for a day,
Or is freedom of speech really a lie.
If I could just see it all,
Just like a fly on the wall.
Would I be able to accept
What I can't control.
Would I preach what I saw,
Or just sit back and ignore.
Like I would just obey the law,
Act like haven't seen it before.
At the end of the day
Would I step up and protest,
Or shrug it off and just walk away,
Before I'll get shot in my chest.
Brick my brick
They made a wall.
And build it so thick
It blocked out the visions I saw.
And one by one
They tore it down.

Let me tell you a story of mine. A tale of thoughts ran through a grinder.
One by one they they stood in line, for the purpose of leaving me one little reminder. Which back then, I didn't know what it meant. But they took their time to clarify. At age 9 they said I should just go ahead and grow up, grow old and go die.
And better fast because I'm not worth their time. I clutched my teddybear and sat down in despair. Fondling it's little red tie, wondering if what they said might be a lie. But deep inside I knew they valued me as much as a filth covered dime. No, maybe less. Of that I was aware, but to ask why, I did not dare.
Day in day out, another tear, another shout, without a choice for myself to make, they haunted me constantly causing me to break. Night in night out, other dream another another scream. Words of hurt forming in my head. Causing me to cry myself to sleep in own bed.
One day I had enough of all. I packed my juice and my teddybear. To leave to a pla

A little target practice seems in place.
Or maybe the arrow was suppose to hit.
If I was wrong and that's not the case;
I say learn how to aim you little shit.
Bet you had fun putting me through hell.
Sure, leave my love life to a toddler.
I guess that would end well.
I knew from the start, so why do I bother?
To me you are just another weeping angel.
That arrow wasn't planned for me.
But did you have to rip it out so painful,
Instead of telling it wasn't meant to be?
The reason for this hate filled letter;
It's your insufferable fate, to never find a soulmate.
Your words not mine, yet to me they don't matter.
Because I'm out of fucks to give I'm afraid..
Just get heat seeking arrows of any kind.
So they won't pinch a heart as cold as mine.
Oh, and P.S just to remind;
Try hitting us bot
