The Jungle

We all live in a jungle
A jungle made of stone
Of concrete, bricks and metal sticks
A jungle we call home

Over crowded streets and thoroughfares
This mighty jungle towers
With people rushing everywhere
The loneliness over powers

A jungle filled with laughter
A jungle filled with noise
With many many things to do
With many wondrous toys

We all live in the jungle
A jungle made of bricks
This jungle has no trees
This jungle has no sticks

A jungle full of saddened people
People in a hurry
People who rush and rush around
People full of worry

The people in this jungle
Have forgotten how to give
If only they could learn to smile
Then perhaps they’ll learn to live

Sonia_R: Title: The Pirate and the ProstituteThe title of this book hints that there are drama, action and adventure. As a reader, I would take one look at the title and be tempted to read further. The title goes hand-in-hand with the cover of a book, it is what captures the reader’s attention at first. T...

deathpunk187: your style of writing with the poems is very interesting the way you seem to bring emphasis to certain words and lines in the poem, I definitely could feel the emotion coming out of it and I definitely relate to them on a personal level. please don't stop writing!

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

chariethomas7: I love the plot line on how it's not just how Elizabeth has to deal the her lover but her ex husband and child. I personally scared that she would get caught with her child but not Ben. I would love if this story can continue. The ending is making me want more.
