Poem #1: Hearts of Stone

You stared straight into their eyes

As they smiled and laughed

You thought you were in for a wonderful surprise

But instead they threw you down a shaft

They left you in the park,

To ponder why

They left you in the dark

And listened to you cry

You know what it feels like

To eat your lunch alone

And ride home on your bike

Wondering if they all have hearts of stone

You how how awful it is

To know there’s no one to cry to

No one who says

Don’t worry I’ll help you

You come home every night

Praying that tomorrow will be better

But try with all your might

The pillow just gets wetter

So then you bury yourself in books

But only the ones that end well

Because all of the crooks

End up in a cell

But even books aren’t enough

To take you far away and make you forget

Your life has none of that fluff

Only a feeling of regret

And you know it’s not your fault

And you can’t help but wonder why

They love to rub your wounds with salt

And cut your wings so you can’t fly

And you end up pleading

For those monster to leave you alone

But didn’t you know that evil never stops feeding

On those poor hearts not yet made of stone.
